KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5ThrillingJune 26, 2017KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Truth be told this series kind of scares me. It has left me with a whole string of 'what ifs' that make me realize that I am totally doomed if a solar flare actually does wipe out all modern technology. LOL And yes, I know this is fiction but Chapman has created a realistic vision of what life might be like after this kind of natural disaster. And it's unsettling. But makes for a riveting read.
This is book two in the Remnant series and this is definitely a case of needing to read the books in order as, with all dystopian series, each book depends upon the others and there tends to be cliffhangerish endings that leave readers gnashing their teeth and pulling out their hair, which Raging Storms definitely does!
There's plenty of action and stomach churning twists and turns as Shelby and Max and their friends make their harrowing journey across an apocalyptic Texas. And it isn't pretty. Truly terrifying in places. Plus there's a secondary plot involving Shelby's teenage son which brings its own unique spin to their desperate situation.
As overwhelming as parts of this story can be, hope still shines through as people of faith rise to the challenge and seek to serve the 'least of these.' I'm anxious to see what develops among the Remnant in the final installment of this epic saga. I can't wait for Light of Dawn to release and I can (hopefully) breathe a huge sigh of relief!
Ashley S.4 Stars Out Of 5Four Stars!June 21, 2017Ashley S.Quality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I absolutely loved Deep Shadows, book one, and have been super excited to read Raging Storm. My mom read this before me and devoured it, but warned me that I might want to wait until it was closer to the release date for book three, Light of Dawn, because of the gigantic cliffhanger. Since it's close to the release of Light of Dawn, I thought I should get to reading this one... and now I completely understand my mom's warning!... I NEED BOOK THREE NOW!
It took me a little bit to get into this book, but once I did, I had a difficult time putting it down! My favorite parts were reading about Carter and life on the ranch with Max's parents Georgia and Roy. They're such a great influence on Carter and I loved watching him grow and adapt to so much in such a short amount of time.
Shelby got on my nerves a bit in the beginning. I completely understood her impatience and attitude, but I still cringed when she took it out on others. Max was one of my favorite characters. He's a steady, strong, good guy, a stable force in a world gone mad. A lot was revealed about the mysterious Dr. Bhatti, what he was hiding, what he was doing in Abney... very interesting!
I had so much anxiety the entire book. There was a sense of urgency that permeated all throughout and I couldn't read it fast enough. The author did a magnificent job at painting a vivid and realistic picture of what the world would look like if the electrical grid goes down and all modern technology is lost. It's haunting and bleak at times, but there's also an underlying theme of hope. I seriously can't wait to read Light of Dawn and I highly recommend this series to everyone!
Pam BurkePotosi, MOAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Race for SurvivalApril 3, 2017Pam BurkePotosi, MOAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Raging Storm is Vannetta Chapman's second chapter of her Remnant series, a rather frightening look at an all too realistic possibility in our technology reliant world.
This story picks up right where the first left off with characters doing their best to survive in a situation where survival is questionable at best. The interactions between the main characters and those who are introduced in the second book bring even more life and interest to the story. Vannetta develops diverse scenarios and characters to add multiple levels of intrigue to her story, all of which kept me highly engaged as a reader.
Fans of great fiction should enjoy Raging Storm, especially those with any interest in the dystopian genre. Reading this series in order is important to follow the story line. The author left a perfect set-up for the next installment, Light of Dawn, due to be released later this year. She also has written a prequel, available in the form of a free ebook novella, Overshadowed.
Britney Adams5 Stars Out Of 5Raging StormMarch 20, 2017Britney AdamsQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Raging Storm is a chilling tale! Action-packed and terrifying at every turn, I was completely absorbed in Shelby and Max's search for supplies, as well as what was happening in the community they left behind. Spellbound, I frantically turned the pages to find out what would happen next. Well within the realm of possibility, thoughts of this story continue to linger in my mind as I anxiously await the next installment!
The Remnant Series is one I highly recommend reading in order. The prequel novella, Overshadowed, sets the stage for the catastrophic events that occur and subsequent novels continue the dramatic devastation that ensues.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. No review was required, and all thoughts expressed are my own.
