Taken By Storm by Emmie Mears

2016-standout-award-badge-smallAyala Storm has certainly gone through a lot since the first book of this series.  She’s up against amazing odds, but she just keeps kicking ass. 😉

Publisher’s Description: Stripped of her Silver Scale, made a pariah by the Summit, and with a price tag the size of Kentucky on her head, Ayala is on her own. Gregor Gaskin is still missing, and when Ayala discovers he’s far outside the Mediator territory line, she will unravel more about the Summit than she ever thought possible. Finding Gregor will take her far from home, but catching him might hit her right where she lives — and Gregor’s plans may just release hell on earth before she can stop him.

Possible spoilers beyond this point.


Invested Ivana says…

I’m loving this series, but I’m struggling a little to write this review.  I just want to say, “Whew!”  So much has happened to Ayala Storm, The Summit, and Ayala’s part of the world since Storm in a Teacup, and I’d hate to spoil it for anyone.

Personally, Ayala has become stronger and a lot less of a loner.  She’s publicly an outcast, but has support from inside the Summit as well as outside.  She’s learning that much of what she took as truth is a lie, or at least doesn’t have to be her truth.  She’s fighting to save herself, her friends, and her world.

badge4v4I know that’s fairly vague, but as I said, I don’t want to spoil anything.  This is a fast-moving series, with lots of action and lots of introspection.  I can feel right along with Ayala as things happen to her and around her.  I think any fan of urban fantasy is going to find this series a treat.
