I have seen Storm of Aaranon by R E Shehan around for some time now and was curious, so when this tour came up I decided now is the time. My sister, Laura @ fuonlyknew had all the books, so the one I didn’t have, I borrowed from her.

I love covers and this is an interesting one. There is a lot going on and I wonder who is good and who is bad.

I didn’t anticipate the story inside. Intense…from the opening sentence. So you better buckle up because this may be a bumpy ride.

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

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.

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.

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

R. E. Sheahan’s, “Storm of Arranon,” is an awesome, action packed novel. There is a lot of information that you get hit with throughout the novel, but having such a wide variety of characters that have so many different backgrounds makes it harder for you to see what is coming next because the characters are more unpredictable. We get to see Erynn’s personality and powers grow as she tries to escape her status as prey with her “guardian” Jaer. Of course, no story would be complete without a roma ...more

Fantasy, Science fiction, adventure, romance, magic all are the elements of the story. The story is about a girl named Erynn who learned that she is a child of two planets Korin and Arranon and as a result she has abilities that is extraordinary. She has powers beyond imagination, and hence the brutal aliens invades Korin and wants to take Erynn with them to make use of her special powers. But, Erynn then like super hero is on her own mission to save her planets and its people.

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

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.

Excerpt From Storm of Arranon - Booking One
Birk rolled on top of her. Leaves and twigs stuck in his dirty, windblown hair. Dust swirled. Debris from the windstorm dug into her back. He straddled her. One hand grasping her throat, he squeezed. Erynn coughed, clawing at his hand, and arm. Birk’s laugh rumbled low and menacing from deep in his chest. His strange pale eyes sparked and burned with anger. His arm drew back, hand fisted.

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,

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

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

It seems she has some special powers from her Arranon side and that others know of these powers and plan on using them. Jaer is part of the crew that kidnaps Erynn.

Young Erynn Yager is a cadet on her home planet of Korin. She keeps a secret, which is that she is a child of two worlds, Korin and its sister planet Arranon. This is taboo, but, as a result of this mixed birth, she has abilities: she can sense the emotions of others; can bend time for brief moments; can manipulate the electro-magnetic field around her and can see the future. These abilities are not as secret as she imagines and when a brutal alien power invades Ko

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

I have mixed thoughts about this book; although I can assure you that most all of them are good. My complaint is that there were a few too many times where I found myself wandering away from the story and focusing on my surroundings. Other then this factor I really did like this book as a complete whole. The genre of YA science fiction/fantasy is the perfect genre for this book. I wanted to mention this because there are times when I have read a book and the genre does not fit.

Back to the book.

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

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.

I liked this one. It starts off in such a way that had me intrigued so reading on was a must! Erynn is just a determined girl, or so she thinks. Beneath all her 'normal' is something extremely unique. Her powers have always been something she has hidden and thought were a big secret. I liked the different planets and the war between the two and the alien race. The story overall is very good and I like the mix of genres here.

From the first moment you start reading this book, it is incredibly descriptive, which is really great since it lets you immerse yourself into the story. When you’re introduced to the character of Erynn, you can start to tell how awesome she is, but she keeps getting cooler the more you read. She has secrets and talents she didn’t even know about, which is always entertaining. The book has a lot of information to get through, and some of the action sequences will really have you on the edge of y ...more

Is a tale of aliens seeking to capture a Korin and Arranon. Eyrnn has abilities she doesn't understand and is sought after by the aliens. She is a strong woman with insight to animals that are dangerous to humans, but not to her. She has issues with her birth father and the dad that adopted her.

The premise of STORM OF ARRANON seemed interesting – a young woman of forbidden mixed race with remarkable powers called upon to save the two worlds of which she is both from – but the execution felt lacking. The novel started out strong; the first chapter especially was in the perspective of the story’s main antagonists and it promised thrills and excitement. But it quickly receded in the next few chapters.

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.
