I often pick up a series-starter book, one of those no-cost titles to get a feel for a new to me author and discover if their work strikes a chord with me or not. Storm Shift is one of those titles, and although it first was published in 2017, it’s still the first read for me so it’s all new and unexplored for this reader… and a perfect example of why I’m careful in reviews, trying not to give away spoilers to new readers.
Storm Shift caught my attention early on and held it throughout the story. Chia is a fascinating character full of mystery, sass, attitude, magic, and strength… although she’s not aware of all she can do yet in the magical realm, she will fight for and defend her town from outside forces. Her grandparents’ deaths at the lake make no sense at all, and Chia is determined to get to the bottom of that mystery. Added to this newly elected Town Manager’s plate are a murder, a bounty hunter, and even more questions that have no answers – yet.
The world-building made Charming, Alaska come alive for me, the secondary characters added just enough to keep events interesting, and the overall feel of the story kept me reading until the end. I liked Chia and Hung, have so many questions that I believe would be answered further into the series. Will I come back? Yes, I will return for the rest of the series, now comes the decision to binge-read or go with a monthly purchase… we shall see.
I own a Kindle edition of Storm Shift.
