The rain wanted to be ocean; the ice in the mountain caps wanted freedom. I never knew that water held such longing. The clouds above my head rumbled like a growling wolf, impatient to release their burden. I held the rain there a moment longer. I turned to Renata, heard her gasp and knew my eyes glowed blue.

I spoke a single word. 'Rain.'

Last year, I fell in love with Rhiannon Hart's debut, Blood Song. Guys, she was only warming up. Rhiannon Hart completely bypasses the dreaded curse of the second book in a series to deliver a completely addictive, twisty, dangerous and (more than) satisfying sequel. Where Blood Song introduced us to the world of Lharmell, Zeraphina and Rodden, Blood Storm takes us way deeper into their world.

A list of so many things I loved about Blood Storm:

A storm is approaching and Zeraphina and Rodden know why. The death of the Lharmellin leader caused a disturbance in Lharmell, sparking an uproar that could not be ignored. After a string of murders are made known to them, our duo set out to discover what the Lharmellins are up to and who leads them in their quest to infiltrate and take over Amentia. While on this journey, Zeraphina and Rodden cross the lands, the deserts, and seas in search for components of a weapon that are lethal to the Lhar ...more

Given the trouble Zeraphina and Rodden caused in Lharmell at the end of Blood Song, it's no surprise to say things are changing in Blood Storm. But in a much subtle, devious, what-is-going-on kind of way. The weather has been far better in Armentia, for starters, and when the weather shifts, dear readers, you ought to be alarmed. Suspicious murders are on the rise, and Rodden's hackles are raised. Determined to find out what the Harmings are up to and who the new Lharmellin leader is, our deligh ...more

Such was my reaction upon finishing Blood Storm at 3:30am one morning not long ago. My sleeping husband snuffled indignantly at my outburst as he rolled over in bed beside me, reminding me that “Oh right, it is an ungodly hour of the morning, so I might want to keep my screaming to a minimum.”

So instead, I silently vented my disbelief at my bedroom ceiling (who wasn’t emp

Wow, I almost don't even know what to say. I'm just really impressed and shocked right now. I loved the first novel in the series Blood Song, but man... Blood Storm definitely topped it! Everything I hoped to find in this sequel was there and a whole lot more. It was all freaking awesome, and much praise to the author for writing such a fantastic and mesmerizing read!

Yay! Adventure in the world and exploration of the characters psyches, my favourite combination! I found myself totally absorbed into the story and enjoyed it even more than the first book. Thank you Rhiannon Hart.

Wow! This is one of those book that I finish....and then sob because I have to wait now until the third book comes out. It has been a few hours now since I have finished it and I so I have calmed down and can talk about it. This book was fantastic, everything that I wanted and more. Zeraphina is still amazing and in this book (book 2) she seemed slightly more vulnerable yet still being so brave and courageous. Rodden was still Rodden (swoon!) and I was glad to find out more about him and his pas ...more

That ending! That ending! Oh my heart!!

Blood Storm is the amazing sequel to Blood Song. Blood Song was the introduction to Zeraphina and her world (and Rodden- can't forget Rodden) but the action really begins in Blood Storm. I found myself much more emotionally involved in this novel and the last 1/4 had me frantically turning the pages. To say I'm feeling desperate for the next book is an understatement. Im still in shock over Blood Storm's ending. Loved this book!

A nail-biting, intense drama that’s utterly engaging and mesmerising. Having fallen in love with Rhiannon Hart’s sensational Young Adult, paranormal debut novel, Blood Song, I was looking forward to reading the sequel. This book exceeded all expectations, as I was whisked off on a thrilling adventure, that spanned across oceans and took one to distant, exotic lands. Full of dramatic action, spinechilling tension and mystery, this is a story that grabs you from the first page. Zeraphina, is a bri

Zeraphina & Rodden are back from killing the leader of the Lharmell. They are hoping that if they didn't stop them completely, they have at least bought themselves some time.

Five months after Blood Song finished, Zeraphina is still in Pergamia and has been extremely busy. Training with her trusty bow and arrow – as well as her drain cat, Leap and loyal eagle, Griffin – Rodden has been trying to get Zeraphina prepared for fighting the Lharmellians. With her seventeenth birthday approaching, there’s more to worry about than just the Harmings – her mother, Renata, is finding potential Princes who would be willing to marry the somewhat wayward princess.

Why it has taken me so long to read this series is definitely beyond me, it's full of adventure, humour and a great sizzling tension between out heroine and hero, Zeraphina and Rodden.
The first book Blood Song was so good and this one was as good as the first, but with a killer ending that left me jaw-droppingly speechless and desperately needing and wanting the third book to read, unfortunately it won't be released till next year.

I was stoked to find another fantasy series to add to my keeper bookshelf after devouring Blood Song. Now Rhiannon Hart continues the fantasy adventure with Blood Storm and it's another effortless read chock full of quest-like danger and excitement, romantic tension, and wicked creatures in a unique world.

Don't worry I'm keeping this spoiler free but I'm pretty sure fantasy lovers and YA fans will adore this addictive series. If you missed the first book (and awesome debut) or need fur
Last year I read and enjoyed the first in the series Blood Song so I was more than happy when I got my grubby little paws on book two. Where ‘Blood Song’ is about Zeraphina and the start of the adventure, BLOOD STORM is all about Rodden and his mysterious past; it also continues the adventure, for their work is not done. Rodden is a man with a past; he is brooding and inscrutable, a private man who is not willing to open up about private stuff and certainly doesn’t want to share what he is up to ...more

Blood Storm by Rhiannon Hart is a YA paranormal romance starring Zeraphina, a princess whose older sister married the crown prince of another country, and Rodden, a commoner who rose to a position of power very young. Both Zeraphina and Rodden have been infected with the blood of Lharmellians, the precursor to turning them into Harmings (human vampires). As Zeraphina and Rodden struggle with side effects and struggle to remain human, retaining their will, they are intent on opposing Lharmellians ...more

WOW! Such a mesmerizing read. Rhiannon Hart has written yet another enticing read.

This series just keeps on getting better. Stephanie Meyer had better watch out, this is by far a more enthralling read than Twilight.

There is so much darkness throughout the book but the romance that is stirring between Princess Zeraphina and Rodden really makes for a juicy read.

Zeraphina becomes more than just a princess, she does things a respectable royal would not, she goes travelling the countryside alone wit

I couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy of this second book in the Lharmell series, having loved the first book.

It was continually listed as unavailable on Book Depository, was absent from all the bookstores in town, but then I finally found it for a reasonable price on the Angus and Robertson website, so I ordered it straight away.

I enjoyed the way the story picked up straight away, but Hart included the odd snippet of information to remind us of what had happened before without launching int

This is a series review! Blood Storm is the sequel to Blood Song and a great follow up with a killer ending. The mystery of the plot and chemistry between all the characters just draws you in. All of the characters have flaws and redeeming qualities. It was fascinating to see them grow yet still retain some of the original flaws - ones they are well aware they have. The world is a fantastical setting that feels real. Countries are poor or rich each with their own climate and economic issues all ...more

Loved this book SO much!
This was a great second book, possibly even better than the first one. It's more exciting and the mystery is much deeper.
Finally got to find out a bit more about all the characters... especially Rodden, who I just couldn't figure out in the first book. The reason he is so broody is well explained as in this book we see into his tragic past D:! AND Zeraphina just kept on being her awesome, strong-willed and fiery heroine self.
There HAS to be sequel because the ending...

Beautifully written, dark, romantic, empowering and lapped with such a great sense humour between its characters and the pages within, Rhiannon Hart's BLOOD STORM is by far one of the best sequels I've read in a very long while and it's only gearing me up in high anticipation for the last and final installment coming out next year!

Eh, it was okay. Took me forever to read and the ending wasn't my favourite but I guess it leaves us in shock?...maybe for some anyway, and anxious for the next book to keep us satasified. I think the first book was fantastic but this one didn't do it for me. Over eight weeks in reading it, yeah, sort of drones on. Don't take this personally those who liked it, it's just my opinion and unfortunately this book didn't come to my expectations and was a bit of a let down.
