What if the job you took to stay alive might be what kills you? Kade knows what it is to suffer. He knows what it's like to lose everything and everyone around him. His job in a Stormer Unit guarantees not just his survival in the decimated country of Azetaria, but his sister Meg's. Even if it means facing the Numachi warriors baying for his blood, he'll do what it takes to keep her safe. Hadley is alone and surviving the only way she knows how. By hiding where predators won't find her and scavenging enough just to keep her alive. When desperation drives Hadley to search for her missing brother, she mistakenly accepts the offer of recruitment into the Stormer's camp, only to be partnered with Kade and sent as a scout into Numachi territory. The intimidating young Stormer may just know where her brother has gone. But can they stay alive long enough to find him? ...

4.5 Stars! <3 =D
Let the fandom come with all of its awesomeness that this book brings. Because it was just AWESOME!!!
So we have this really cool plot of trying to rescue a princess and nothing is going right, and they are in enemy territory.
Did I mention how I love books about going into enemy territory to rescue princesses??? Because I do, so there.
The World Building:
I really loved the world building in this book. Deserts have always been an interesting landscape for me. The ways the Stormer ...more
I was very apathetic toward this book. I didn't care about it. Most of the pieces weren't bad, they just really didn't wow me.
The MCs' relationship, which is the main focus of the book, just... didn't feel very natural to me. :/ Also, I kinda get why Kade acted the way he did to Hadley, but I feel like his motivations weren't really made clear, and I couldn't really get on-board with his decision. I feel like there were definitely better ways he could have handled things.
The whole book felt like ...more
I really can't decide if I should rate this book four stars or four and a half stars. This is definitely my favorite book that I've read from Sarah Addison-Fox to date.
The first half of the book reminded me of Mulan which was awesome because it was hilarious. Hadley and Kade were both fun characters and definitely had human limitations. When I first read that these characters were called "Stormers" I had thought that they hunted storms like a previous book that I had read (Roar) so I was pleasan ...more
I really enjoyed reading this story. I found the world of the Stormer's different and intriguing. I really liked how Kade try's so hard to come off as meaner than he really is. I also believe that Hadley is really brace to go to the unknown to try to find her brother. This was a great book and I can't wait to find out what's next in this world.
I enjoyed the bickering and the awkwardness. Bickering is the best when you know they're meant for each other!
But, that said, I was a bit confused as to if this was a Christian book? There were a few mentions of the Ancient and the way they talked about it made me think that was supposed to be the God figure. But then throughout the book there were quite a few occasions where characters cuss - D**n and h*ll. It was just a little wierd that there was cussing and a supposedly Christian book. And ...more

This was my first ever Sarah-Addison book, but I know for sure that it will not be my last!!! I jumped to the opportunity to read this book when the arc signups first started happening. I do not regret one thing.
Although can we please talk about this ending! Um, I know that the next book comes out next month but still I don’t think I can wait that long!!! I am hoping that Sarah has arcs for her next two books because honestly guys, I cannot wait to read the next two books!
Everything about this ...more
