This should be an audiobook that I enjoy but I found myself zoning out quite a bit. This plot was foreshadowed in Omega (Penton Legacy, #3) by Susannah Sandlin so I was expecting the same kind of story or a continuation of that story. It kind of wasn’t the same bad guy etc

Mori Chastaine was part of organization accused of terrorism. They did just blow up a building with government officials and now Mori is the prime suspect thanks to her past rhetoric.

This was a solid 4 star read overall, the story was good, the characters were wonderful BUT I had a problem with a part or two. Michael Benedict was simply evil and here’s what he did: He bombed a high-rise killing more than 200 people and kidnapping the governor (Michael admitted it to Mori). Then when Mori went to Michael in order to save Kell (another stupid heroine who thinks the hero needs her to save him) Michael branded her in the middle of her back with a “B” and threw her in the attic o

This is an original review from I personally purchased this title and all opinions are my own.

Storm Force by Susannah Sandlin was originally released in episodes as a Kindle Serial. Storm Force is now available as a complete book. I personally purchased Storm Force as a complete book.

Sandlin can always pull me into a story, and Storm Force was no exception. With a diverse cast of unique characters and one über terrible villain, Storm Force was a great paranormal page

I bought this book after reading the books that started it all. It was a kindle series book so each time a new episode was released I wold get an email. Great plan if you like that sort of thing but I myself hated so I stopped reading it until the whole series was complete and then started over from the beginning. I did enjoy getting it at a lower price though so I will buy a series book again but just wait to read it.

Now for the book. I Loved it! The characters were great and the villain was so
I really loved this audio from start to finish, the author gives wonderful characters with mystery you just can’t put your finger on. Oh the secrets are wonderful when you get them worked out. There are characters you are going to love and some you will hate so much you wish you could take them out yourself. You know you have a wonderful audio when you are talking and yelling to the characters. One man has it all, and he demands more by pulling Mori into the bomb he set off, you will be shocked ...more

The story held my interest. I liked the characters. Overall, the main storyline completed. The villain's actions were over the top. People who supported his agenda, were mentioned once or twice, but their support had no consequences. I felt there should have been some closure on the fiancé who supported the villain's plan for the heroine. I also thought the heroine's parents should have had some type of fallout for their actions. This is showing as first in a series, so maybe some additional clo ...more

I enjoyed the story and liked the concept. great characters and even though it was a stand alone it could obviously continue into a series. Listened to it in audio format and sadly this is not a narrator that i like listening to so it somewhat dulled the impact of the story

Susannah Sandlin is one of my favorite authors. I was borderline obsessed with her Penton Legacy series and I’m in love with her Sentinels of New Orleans series, which she writes as Suzanne Johnson. Pretty much any book this woman writes, under whatever name she chooses, I will read. When I was given the o

Let me say up front that I had two problems going in to my read of Storm Force. I really, really, let me emphasize this, really wanted this to be Cage’s story. Frankly I wanted it to be his HEA in Omega, and it wasn’t, so I want to see his story pretty badly at this point, and it looks like I’m waiting until sometimes in the fall. Color me annoyed on that score, especially since I bought the book.

The plot also had some similarities to another military roman

It was an interesting read at the beginning. But then the story shifts to a story about animal shifters. I got this as a free book, as the blurb sounded interesting. The story is anything but (in my opinion).

While I am a fan of paranormal, I am not a fan of paranormal fiction. I did not enjoy this at all. Not my genre.

Mori’s 25th birthday is coming up, and her time is running out. Her parents sold her in marriage when she was born, and that pact will have to be honored on her 25th birthday. Mori doesn’t want to marry the man as she can’t stand him, but she is the last female shifter of her species of childbearing age. If she does not want to doom them to extinction as their animal counterpart is, she will have to comply. All her attempts to reason with Michael Benedict have been for naught though, he will hav ...more

I can’t give a full review right now, but will give my thoughts on it so far, I will add to the reviews as I read the episodes.

For the first part of this serials book, I am very pleased. Its written very well, and I love Susannah’s work already. The first part is just enough to really get your interest up. Jack “Kell” Kellison is a very interesting character who I really like, He does seem t

I am going to start with this... Ms Susannah, how the hell do you come up with your bad guys!! I mean seriously! This one pretty much tops the scariest one you've written so far- and you know I stalk you and all your books!! Ok, back to the review. This one is quite the interesting story. I think my favorite part is the fact that there is a lonely human surrounded by all kinds of shifters. This is really competing for one of my favorites written by this author!

My English review

Susannah Sandlin has two different and very interesting series and I admit that I was curious to read this new one. I think this new book is very different from what she has written so far and although we have some supernatural aspects here, it was intriguing to have it in the background over the story. I found it interesting to have for once a human hero in the midst of creatures of all kinds. Despite his lack of powers, our hero is great to meet and discove

4.5 I love Sandlin's Penton series and was excited to read Storm Force the first book in her new Omega series. Take one part shifter, one part human, and an ex-Army Ranger and shake - creating a secret elite-counter terrorism team. The results a dynamic team that you cannot help but fall in love with.

I immediately liked Jack "Kell" Kellison the leader of this elite group. He is one hundred percent human and completely swoon-worthy. He is new to the idea of shifters and the paranormal world in g

It's pretty rare to read an urban fantasy where the female lead is the supernatural and the male is human. I'm a big fan of the author (who also writes the Sentinels of New Orleans series under the name Suzanne Johnson), but had to wait to read this because it was originally released in serial format which I'm not a fan of. Reading the book as a whole, though, it is cohesive, and you'd never guess it was released as a serial.

The story was fast-paced with a suspense filled plot centering around

I really enjoyed reading this Kindle Serial, but it was really hard to wait for each episode to arrive every week! I thought this was a well-written PNR, and while at the beginning of the book I wanted to strangle the heroine, Mori, because of her behavior towards the villain, the last episode more than made up for that (she becomes more of an agent in her own rescue/defense). This ends with a very plausible HFN between the Hero/heroine, and I like how the romance developed over the course of th ...more

I picked up this story for my Kindle, and was pleasantly surprised. The author has added a few new twists on the supernatural story of shifters. I enjoyed her take on shifter politics and hierarchies. The story itself is action packed, but adds a dash of romance that adds to the storyline.

The story starts off with an elite squad of soldiers called the Omega Force team, a "collective of new human-paranormal special operations units." The team includes human ex-Army Rangers Jack Kellison (aka Kel

This was a decent read, especially considering it was free on Amazon.

From what I understand, this book is a spin off from a different series but I read this solo and didn't have any problems following the characters or story. However, the conclusion was open-ended, like a preamble for the next step in the character's lives, but wasn't a cliffhanger or anything horribly angsty. I don't see anything else in line to make this a series... So those that like neat bows to end things might not like th

Kell is an ex-Ranger with an injury, now part of Omega Force, a group of combined military or ex-military and shifters who are organized as a task force. When a building is blown up in Houston, his group is called in to try to find the culprit. All points at first to Mori, who heads an environmental group, and unknown to the group is a shifter herself. She is involved in the plot as a victim of sorts, but has no part in creating the bombing. From there, the interaction/romance of Kell and Mori t ...more

Jack "Kell" Kellison, former US Ranger and his hodgepodge Omega Force team are set to investigate a potential terrorist who is the suspect for a recent bombing attack. Mori is this suspect, who by all accounts appears to be anything but a terrorist. Something makes her different, Kell just cant put his finger on what that is.

As a huge fan of Susannah Sandlin's Penton Legacy series, I just had to pick up this spinoff book. Chronologically, it seems to take place between Omega and Allegiance and features characters from the newly created special ops organization, Omega Force. This book definitely had more elements of romance between the main characters, Kell and Mori, both whom I liked for the most part. Mori drove me crazy once in awhile with her insistence on keeping the shifter secret from Kell, further endangering ...more

I started out liking this book a lot. Likeable, intelligent characters, facing challenges in reasonable and sometimes exciting ways. But then, more than half way through the book, the hero (and his boss) seem to have been struck with a sudden attack of stupidity. He survives anyway, and partially regains some of his prior intelligence, but not all of it, since he makes at least a couple more dumb mistakes. The book was originally published as a serial. I don't know if the author stumbled due to ...more
I so wanted to love this book like I love the Penton books. But it just wasn't as compelling. It even got a bit boring. Not really sure why. I loved that the hero had a chronic injury (not something authors usually want to saddle their hero with) but other than that I found him kinda flat. The heroine too was kinda just defined by her circumstances. I wasn't drawn in by the other characters either. If I was a better critic I could say why... but if you are going to read this author, please read ...more
