Review: Raging Storm by Vannetta Chapman

raging-stormRaging Storm is book two in the Remnant Series. I definitely recommend reading book one, Deep Shadows, as it sets up the devastating situation that these characters find themselves in and gives a lot of good background information that helps the reader understand what Max, Shelby, Carter, and all of the characters in this novel are facing.

I absolutely loved Deep Shadows, yet I loved Raging Storm even more! I really appreciated that the novel covered not only the journey to Austin that Max, Shelby, and their friends were on, but also kept tabs on what was going on with Shelby’s son, Carter, back at High Fields. Both storylines were equally fascinating to me.

The author did a great job of showing the way society had broken down. The characters found themselves in multiple precarious situations, yet despair was balanced with moments of hope. Although many dangerous encounters ocurred, there were pockets of good people out there. I could easily visualize the distruction and chaos that was the new reality.

This story left me VERY, VERY anxious to know what happens next! I highly recommed Raging Storm and the entire series to those who enjoy dystopian novels.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


raging-stormIn the Darkness,
Anarchy Awakens

When a massive solar flare wiped out all modern technology across the globe, the small town of Abney, Texas, was thrown into chaos. Shelby Sparks and her teenage son, Carter, have found refuge, but Shelby knows she can’t simply remain hidden forever. Carter is a type 1 diabetic in need of insulin—and Shelby will risk her life traveling to Austin to make sure he gets it.

Shelby’s best friend and high school sweetheart, Max Berkman, won’t even consider letting her make the perilous journey alone. Together, they manage to get to the capital—only to discover that while things are desperate in Abney, Austin has turned into an urban nightmare on the brink of anarchy.

Shelby and Max’s search for medical supplies will lead them into terrifying territory, where the only thing more uncertain than finding what they need is the hope of making it out of the city alive.

In this second book in an eerily plausible, action-packed dystopian series, survival will be threatened and faith will be put to the ultimate test as a raging storm engulfs America.

The first thing you need to know about me is that I write Fiction full of GRACE. Every plot is different. The characters change. Some of my books are mysteries, others are novellas, and some are romances. But they all are stories of light, hope, and truth. Stories that at least for a moment touch the deepest places in our heart.

Tales that whisper hope. That speak of family and community. That remind us of God and His love.

What do I write? If I had to reduce it to four words, I suppose I’d say I write Fiction full of GRACE.
