Three months after the killer rain first fell, Ruby is beginning to realise her father might be dead . . . and that she cannot survive alone. When a chance encounter lands her back in the army camp, Ruby thinks she is safe – at a price. Being forced to live with Darius Spratt is bad enough, but if Ruby wants to stay she must keep her eyes – and her mouth – shut. It’s not going to happen. When she realizes what is going on – the army is trying to find a cure by experimenting on human subjects – Ruby flips out . . . and makes an even more shocking discovery: she’s not useless at all.
Review by Katy Haye
This was such an enjoyable read. Ruby is a great character to be stuck in the head of – dry and entertaining and very normal (given the circumstances).
I’ve already reviewed The Rain, and what delighted me about The Storm was that there was a tiny thing, barely noticeable, in The Rain where I thought, “Ooh, is that going to be significant?” and then it wasn’t, it was just part of the scenery. In The Storm, though, that tiny possibility is picked up and run with – and it made for some stunning twists and turns. Fast-paced and fabulous, I loved every moment.
Super book, excellent writer, both in the series are highly recommended. Five out of five.
