I enjoyed the ups and downs, twist and turns. may add these to my reading list
I have to say I wasn't to sure after reading the description whether it would be my kind of book but I am so glad I decided to give it a go as I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The story flicks between 2005 which is the present time and ten years earlier in the past. The story mainly focuses on Abi (Abigail) and to certain events in her past that have led her to where she is in the present.
I really liked Abi as due to her circumstances she has had to be strong. In her younger days she certainly is your typical teen. Her best friend Judy is also a really great character and I don't think anyone could ask for a better best friend than her.
After the death of Abi's mum, certain things come to light which turns her whole world upside down.
Storm Rising I found to be a strong and steady read that, even though I kind of guessed which way the story was heading, I very much enjoyed the ride that the author took me on. There is actually going to be a sequel to this book which is due out this month and I for one will certainly be looking forward to it.
I think younger adults will certainly be able to relate to the main characters especially when they were younger as well as bring back memories for adults that are slightly older to what it felt like to be that age again. As a parent myself and having a daughter similar age to Abi when she was younger, parts of the story are certainly very thought provoking.
Many thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
The book jumps between two periods of time, from 2005 to flashbacks of 1994/5 when both Abi and Gideon were teenagers.
We starts off in 2005 at the funeral of Abigail Thomson’s (Abi) estranged mother. Over the course of the first few chapters, Abi’s hatred towards her newly deceased mother becomes apparent, the mother that she hadn’t seen her in many years, prior to her death. You travel with Abi as she returns to the family home, where we meet her father, whom she clearly loves very much, mixed in with sympathy and distrust she has of him.
Abi is a wonderfully written character, in her twenties, bubbly and warm, and extremely headstrong. Especially as she is trying to live with her past events, events that will haunt her forever.
In the flashes back to 1994, you get to witness a young, rebellious, teenage Abi, as she embarks on her first serious relationship with her new boyfriend, Gideon Hawk, the boy who later broke her heart.
Gideon is a sexy, 29 year old rock star, and frontman of the band ‘NightHawk’, or he was until he decided to quit the band following their last concert in New York. After quitting the band, the other two members are left with no way of carrying on, but Gideon is adamant that he’s had enough of the rock star life-style.
Over the years he could of have had any girl he wanted, but the only person he’s ever loved is Abi. Now he’s free from the band, he wants to see her again, brought on my his nightly dreams of her. For a rock star he’s sensitive and caring, mixed in with an exceptionally witty personality.
I loved this book, so much that I did something I try not to do.Read more ›
This is not just your typical rock star romance. This novel showcases the intricacies of familial relationships, the heartbreak caused by lost love, and the life-changing consequences of lies and deception.
The writing is well done. The characters are empathetic, complex and interesting. And the plot is told from differing perspectives, in a past/present style, that gives depth, understanding, and a smooth flow to the storyline.
This is the first book in the NightHawk Series, and I look forward to reading book #2, Rhythm of Deceit, to find out what happens next.
Thank you to Rachael Richey, the author, for providing me with a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.
The book starts with Abi's mother's funeral and it's clear that there is no love lost between Abi and her parents. 'What on earth could have happened?', I thought - as I was snagged on the first hook. By the end of Chapter 3, after being introduced to Gideon Hawk and Abi makes a discovery in her parents' attic, I was firmly caught in the net of Storm Rising.
The book flips back and forth between Abi's past and present, making sure that no stone lies unturned as Abi's story is fully revealed. As this is a book that I would highly recommend reading, I can't write any more about the story without spoiling it for others. There are some terribly heart-rending moments which brought many a tear to my eye (happy or sad tears, I'm not saying), showing how emotionally involved I was in the story. I loved Abi, Gideon and Judy - despite fame and the passage of time, they still feel the same about each other as they always did.
This book has everything a girl could want - first love and teenage heartbreak; family secrets and backstabbing friends; old relationships and new beginnings. Rachael Richey has written a very poignant story touching on some very difficult subjects. It is written in such a way that a surprise or a shock could turn up on any page when it is least expected. This is an exceptional debut novel and I'm really looking forward to reading book 2, Rhythm of Deceit.
I chose to read an ARC and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
