A single night can change your life… for the worst.

It’s been a century since the last Centennial Storm, the calamitous phenomenon that covered the world in disasters– tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, tsunamis, and dust storms– caused not by nature, but by alien creatures from another realm. The Stormkind.

Ava Reid tries not to think about that night, when she was caught in a hurricane and brought face to face with one of the Stormkind, the man with a dagger, and the agony she felt when he stabbed her with a crystal blade. Yet as she and the rest of Florida’s citizens begin to rebuild their lives, Ava can’t help but notice strange things happening around her. Things she seems to be causing. The gusts of wind and sudden floods attract the attentions of a mysterious stranger who leaves her clues, and the deadlier men following her.

It isn’t long before Ava is swept up into a wild conspiracy, led by a secret society that knows the truth about the Stormkind– and what their enemies have planned for the world she loves. If she wishes to protect her friends and her family, Ava must harness her strange new abilities and become part of the Stormkind society. Because if she loses control, there will be no force strong enough to stop her…

Storm Born by Amy Braun
Storm BornThey came from the sky, aliens on a mission of destruction and death and humanity will once again be caught in the crosshairs of life-sucking monsters and storms of monumental proportions. Once every 100 years it happens, unexplainable, mysterious, but at least Mother Nature’s wrath was expected. Was it really Mother Nature in a fury or was even she being manipulated?

After securing her family, Ava becomes witness to the Stormkind, the monsters feeding off humanity, but a strange warrior type being saves her only to change her world forever with the brutal stab of a crystal blade and leaving her alone and in pain, hours from her home.
She is special, a warrior in her own right and the being charged with her care and training, as well as the secret group she now belongs to, may be the only thing that can stop the end of humanity.

Talk about riveting action! Amy Braun hasn’t let a single world building detail go unnoticed! Storm Born is chaotic, and the mental pictures of each scene of destruction, action and battle play out in HDX! If an outspoken, character with a dry sense of humor is up your alley, Ava is your girl. No matter what is going on, she keeps a sense of herself and it shows as she comes to life and grows into a heroine to watch! A touch of romance, mild and almost too unexplored does not shadow the entertainment value of good versus evil and man versus the unknown!
