(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author R. E. Sheahan.)
Erynn is special. What people don’t know about her is that she has a mixed parentage background, and that this seems to have given her special powers.
Erynn’s biological father is from Arranon, while he mother was from Korin. Korin and Arranon are now at war with a powerful and clever enemy, and Erynn is training to be an Interceptor pilot.

One day Erynn is kidnapped by some men on a...more

Ms. Sheahan is a talented writer who easily drew me into the worlds she so expertly created. It was exciting to follow along with Erynn as she discovered more and more about herself and her powers. The characters on both worlds were interesting and in a few cases, they had surprises of their own. There was so much in this story that pulled me in. I loved that Erynn is constantly thrown into danger, I adored her connection with the animals and the fact that she has such incredible power is like t...more

The story takes place in the future. The daughter of a famous general, Erynn is in training to be an interceptor fighter pilot. A sudden betrayal reveals an alien species has infiltrated the government at its highest levels. They want to harvest the planets of Korin and Arranon for their resources, which means total annihilation. With betrayal everywhere Erynn and her friends are not sure who to trust anymore.

Forced to flee Korin and seek safety on Arranon, Erynn learns about the mystery of her...more

Storm of Arranon by R E Sheahan is a breathtaking adventure that shows off the talents of a rising fantasy author. Check out the description for plot points, but know that Sheahan’s strong suit is world-building. We’re talking about places filled with complex characters that walk off the pages and descriptions so rich, you feel as if you’ve been to these fantastical places. The author has an uncanny ability to have her characters wield incredible powers in ways that feel very realistic. Storm of...more

Well, since I wrote it, I should love it! I should, and do, believe the story is great. I worked hard, wrote, rewrote, let critique groups give their opinions and suggestions. Some I took, some I didn't, and rewrote again. I printed it in different fonts, I read it aloud, I read it in different places, until I was happy with the finished work. Are there some typos? Yes, but not many. The biggest problem for me was formatting. I'm not happy with the formatting issues on the e-books. Still trying...more
Chrissy (The Every Free Chance Reader)
Did I enjoy this book: I had trouble with the details. There were plenty of them, don’t get me wrong, but I feel like they were in all the wrong places. I know, for example, every distinct color Erynn sees in the water, but I’m still not sure exactly how old she is. I could feel the tension between Jaer and Erynn while they were bantering and flirting, but the scene in which they kiss for the first time felt, well, like it was missing something. Their gentle kisses don’t jive with the life-and-d...more

There were things I liked about this book and things I didn't. Overall, I think this novel is great for science fiction/fantasy young adult fans. It's definitely unique, so it's not lot any other novel you're gonna pick up when browsing through the young adult section. Read the rest of this review here:Paperbacks and Frosting

I loved "Storm of Arranon" by R. E. Sheahan. The characters were believable. The plot was great. It moved along at a very steady pace and was action packed. It kept me very interested. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. I would recommend this book for fans of science fiction and fantasy books.
Robin
I enjoyed this book. The author did a good job showing the struggle, emotionally and physically,faced by the protagonist. I was drawn into the story and was emotionally vested in Erynn's plight and the outcome of her struggle. I look forward to reading more of this author's works.

Erynn is petite of build with curly red hair and electric blue eyes behind which lies a deeply hidden secret.

Storm of Arranon is well written, exciting, fast-paced, action filled, and a gentle love story with intriguing characters. A great story, told at a perfect pace for young adults.

The characters had interesting powers, Eyrnn was clearly an empath but the author wrote about it in a way that described it in pictures and she never needed to tell us she was an empath. Her connection to animals didn’t happen overnight so seemed a natural addition to her powers. As fo...more

Here’s one of those books that prove you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. We are not saying we didn’t like the cover. It’s just we thought it was a bit busy and were afraid the story would also be too complicated. But we were wrong.R.E. Sheahan does a wonderful job bringing you into two different worlds you will fall in love with. It’s set in the future with the good vs. evil story line. This book has just the enough description that helps you imagine it and doesn’t overpower the story. We...more

For those who don't like to read long reviews, I can sum this up by saying Storm of Arranon is an incredible read, well worth your time.

That said, Storm of Arranon follows Erynn, a military student on the planet of Korin and the daughter of one of Korin's most famous generals. Her entire life, she has been forced to hide a major secret about her past as well as her mysterious powers that she herself does not even understand. When treachery rears its head in the political powers on Korin, she sud...more

Storm of Arranon is a action packed adventure that takes you on a journey to different planets and different cultures. Erynn is a fierce character that like anyone, has her own doubts in her powers and herself, but she soldiers on and would do anything to protect her world and her people. When she meets Jaer she is immediately drawn to him. As the story progresses we she a reluctant friendship turn into a soft love that is beautiful in its sweetness. The beauty and mysticism of each other worlds...more

At first glance, I really loved the look of this book. The cover is a bit cluttered, but the typography of the title is beautiful and the description sounded like an exciting and unique story.

The beginning starts off full of action. When I first started reading, I told my sister, "this is going to be one of those books I can't put down." The author gives just enough history in the beginning so that the reader understands what is going on, but splits it up among exciting action scenes. At first,...more

(I received a copy of Storm of Arranon from the author for an honest review.)


I wasn't really sure what to expect from Storm of Arranon. I'm not a sci-fi fan, per say, but I do love fantasy, and this book has a pleasant mix for lovers of both genres.

Erynn is a strong and admirable heroine, someone readers will relate to and root for. Suddenly kidnapped from her home, she's thrust head on into a war on an unfamiliar planet with people who seem to know more about her than she does. She takes her f...more
Charlene
This is a highly detailed fantasy adventure with a clear enemy and a very strong female protagonist. The world-building is also very layered and complex, and I was impressed by the new language the author developed for the world. It added a lot of realism to the story, and I was even picking up on what often repeated words meant before it was revealed. There's actually a lot to the world that is created in this story and at times I felt it wasn't set up or explained very well. It felt like the s...more

This would be an awesome movie! The writer is so clear in what she's written that I can see everything as if it were a movie. This is equal to Pandora in its awesomeness. The author keeps you on the edge of your seat and doesn't let go. I couldn't stop reading once I was into it. I had to, life, you know. But once I had a moment I was immersed in this universe.

There is a strong fem main character. She doesn't know her abilities and has even felt left out most of her life, but that seems to be a...more

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is an action packed story that will take you to other worlds and cultures. As you read the story you feel as though you are part of the story. The storyline was well developed along the way you see the main character grow and mature. Can't wait to read more from this author.
Robert and Ruth Harris
Beautifully written, quick moving, and exciting. A glimpse into a very believable future. We loved this book. A strong but immature young woman with special powers and a kind of second sight is thrust into a battle for two worlds. Her father hid the facts of her birth to save her life. Shame turns to self-acceptance when she finds that the very birth and the gifts that were forbidden and hidden make her the catalyst for good to overcome evil. Wonderful characters that make you want to know more...more

STORM OF ARRANON by RE Sheahan is the first in this series of young adult science fiction novel written in the third person. You will meet Erynn Yager, the main character and hear her inner monologue throughout the story. Erynn finds herself in a fight with an alien race to save Arranon, a planet that she has a strong connection to. During her time on Arranon , Erynn finds love, trust and friendship. This book is the first si-fi I have read and I must say the author has made me a fan. I am looki...more

I think that the audience that the author is reaching for is a young audience, perhaps teenagers. It is G-rated. The heroine is a young girl who considers herself an outcast, but the future of two worlds are in her hands. It's science fiction, and it's a love story. The author builds up the character's personalities as she builds up the storyline. The characters are very real and emotional. There were a few places towards the beginning of the story that I felt that someone had edited the story,...more
Meg
I loved the female protagonist in this book (and the cover art!). This is not a genre I've read very much of but I think I'm a convert. If a novel is supposed to have something at stake for the characters, what better than the destruction of their world? This tension as well as the special powers and unique life forms in this novel got me hooked. Read this!
Jane Doe


Characters with interesting powers, just the right amount of self doubt about themselves, while continuing with their missions. The world building is amazing, filled with details of the planet, animals and the special connection between the planet and the characters.

Highly recommend this book.

Before I wrote, I read. Voraciously. When I wasn’t able to read, I listened to audio books on tape or CD. Still do.
Hi. My name is Robynn E Sheahan and I live and write from the Cascade Mountains of the Pacific Northwest.

I started to dabble in writing while working as a Paramedic/Firefighter in Northern California. Trust me, it’s not like it appears on TV. There was plenty of time for books.
