"I am completely invested in the cast and the phenomenal story telling of K.R. Conway. Eila is a great MC and surrounded by one of my all time favorite casts of characters. Speaking of characters... I cried in the first few pages at some recap... yeah. That's all I am going to say about that." - ARC reviewer

The adventure continues!

After reading Undertow, I was really interested in continuing the series and seeing where the story would go. This sequel was as good (or even better) than the first! There was no 'second-book-syndrome' with this novel because it had everything that I wanted--and more.

From the beginning, this was a fast-paced and adventurous read. I really had a hard time putting it down because there seemed to be so much action going on and I just had to keep reading to find out.

Okay, I had to let this sit for a few days before I even attempted to write a review on Storm Front (Undertow Book 2) To say that this book blew me away would be the understatement of the year. It’s unusual to like the second book in a series MORE than the first book in a series, but this one is unbelievably good!

I consider myself so fortunate that I got to read this book early, I honestly can’t wait to read it again, and I NEVER want to read a book twice.

Initial Thoughts: Um wow. I didn't think anything could surpass the first book because it was so well done but boy was I wrong! It was even better. Not to mention a cliffhanger for an ending? *evil smile* My favorite.

The Characters & Story: The stakes definitely seemed higher in this book. Eila knows she needs to learn/come into her abilities before it's too late. Raef is still hurting from having to ki

She survived…what should have killed Eila Walker, only brought her out on the other side stronger and more determined to fight the invisible evil that lurks in the shadows. But her protector and love Raef O’Reilly is convinced that her brush with death was all his fault, and he is now keeping an arm’s length from Eila and the blossoming relationship they were discovering. But that is not the only thi
Holy undertow Batman!

Another cliffhanger to add to the list of 'Books Endings That Tested My Will!' Far from being unsatisfying, or totally devastating (like some cliffhangers I've read), the ending to Stormfront was just enough of a teaser to get you dying of anticipation for the next book.

It was funny, because I'd set this book aside for a little bit (to finish off some urgent reviewing) and I was chatting with K.R. Conway via Twitter. I told her how I was almost at the end of the book, and h

OMG…*Gasp*…What!!!...*Shakes head*…*Speechless*…Those were my reactions while reading Stormfront by K.R. Conway. I have been wanting to read this book since the last chapter of Undertow and was sooo happy to got my hands on a copy of Stormfront. It was so worth the wait!!!

Stormfront picks up from incident at the Breakers which our characters can’t seem to escape from but time is not on their side….As an aside…If you have not read Undertow, I would highly advise reading that first which starts t

Let me first say: I love how K. R. Conway writes. I have read a good many YA novels in my life, and she is by far one of the best writers in the genre. Her characters are so real you'd swear they're sitting next to you while you're reading. And I have to admit to having a crush on Kian. And maybe a little one on MJ.
The story picks right up after the events of the first book in the series, Undertow. The action never flags, either. It took me four days to read it, and the only reason it took th

*I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

I really loved the first in this series and the second certainly didn't disappoint! It is so refreshing to read a paranormal book that is not on vampire or werewolves.

At the end of Undertow I was left wanting more instantly, unfortunately I had to wait a year in order to be able to read the continuation of the story. I was soo happy to continue reading this story.

The story is set not long after the incident in the Breakers at the

Why I Picked It Up

I absolutely adored Undertow so of course I needed to get my hands on this one!


Stormfront was full of unexpected surprises, new characters, and a whole lot of action. Regarding plot, it was definitely more engaging than book one, which I wouldn’t have thought possible. The pacing in this book was fast which kept me absolutely glued to the book. I put a lot of emotional stake into what happene

“All I wanted to be was a Barnstable High School senior and not look like an idiot in my school picture. Instead I was a rare, zillion-watt light bulb.”—Eila

This is the second book in the series, and there’s no sophomore slump here! The book is just as entertaining to read as the first book, Undertow! If you’ve missed the first book in the series, you can easily catch up with the recap at the start (although I’d recommend reading the first book, too!). Our characters are just as awesome as in th

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Wow – these books are such a treat to read! It’s really refreshing to dive into a book that has a great blend of romance, sizzle, action, and intrigue. I can’t recommend these books (and this author) enough. Even if you’re not a fan of paranormal romance, there’s enough mystery and plot to entertain a wide audience.

To start, you should read these books in order. This installment begins where the previous one left off with minimal re

Overall: 4.5 stars

I was completely drawn in by the first book in this series, Undertow, and Stormfront has kept the excitement and the intrigue going strong. Stormfront picks up not long after where Undertow left off. I love that this is a young adult series, yet as someone not in that demographic, I am completely invested in these characters, their storyline, and their world.

One new development in Stormfront is that we get the dual POV of both Eila and Raef. For this series, this change-up wor

Stormfront was absolutely and utterly amazing! But now I have to wait for the next book! Ugh!! I did not think it could get better than Undertow, but the bar in Stormfront was raised about ten notches!

K.R. Conway depicts a beautiful world of Mortis, lunaterra, sways, and more. It truly creates a world that I want to live in for the adventure. Eila is an 18 year old girl who's world is continuously flipped upside down when she moves to cape cod with her aunt Mae. Her voice is witty and is capab

I feel very privileged to have been chosen to receive an ARC of StormFront because KR Conway is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors to read. The way this author tells a story sucks you in to where you don't want to put the book down – hanging on each word dying to know what will happen next. And let me tell you it is never what you think it will be. This is one author that you can’t “figure out” –you won’t know where the story is going until you get there, and when you get there it will ...more

I had a hard time writing this review, as I am not blessed with the gift that K.R. Conway has. How to sum up just how refreshing this book is? In a market that is overrun with young adult supernatural romances, Stormfront (even more so than it’s prequel Undertow) certainly stands out. It has a completely original set of supernatural beings, rather than putting a new spin on the old standbys of vampires and werewolves. While there are some similarities to those creatures, they still have their ow ...more
I read Undertow and Stormfront back to back and loved every single bit of both books. It's going to drive me crazy having to wait for the next book!

I loved Eila even more in this book than the first one. She really comes into her own as a strong girl who accepts who she is and wants to fight to protect it. She becomes more confident in herself and in her relationship with Raef. I absolutely adore Raef. He understands the need to protect Eila but also learns when to back off a bit and show her th

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author K. R. Conway.)

This was a good sequel to Undertow, and I enjoyed it.

Eila was a good character in this, and she was certainly self-sacrificing. She did make some questionable decisions at times though, and didn’t always seem to be considering the seriousness of the situation.
I have to say that I was quite surprised by the dual narrative in this book as it was different to the first book. Raef came
The sequel to Undertow was terrific! I was nervous about reading Book 2 because I read Book 1 a while back and couldn't remember everything that happened. But K.R. Conway did a fantastic job slipping in reminders so that as I read Book 2, Book 1 scenes came back to mind. I never felt lost during the entire read! Thank you, Ms. Conway!

First off, I love these characters--Eila, Ana, MJ, Kian, and Raef. I so wish I could take a roadtrip with them. They all play so well off each other and you can fee

This book was AMAZING! I thought it couldn't get any better than UNDERTOW, but it was way better than UNDERTOW. The language in the book was so vivid and I could imagine in my head everything that was going on! This book kept me on my toes and had me turning page after page. I cannot wait for her next book!

STORMFRONT, the sequel to UNDERTOW, continues the story of Eila, Raef, Kian and MJ. Written from the perspectives of Eila and Raef, the book captures more of the essence of the saga. It rounds out the characters and fills in the gaps in their relationships. It also provides amazing twists and turns in the story. Just when you start to think you have things figured out Conway throws you another curveball. If you liked UNDERTOW you will love STORMFRONT. Conway has once again written a very believa ...more

I had so much fun reading this second book in the Undertow series. We learn more about the characters in this book and about their relationships to each other. Several sections had me laughing out loud. Cape Cod comes through vibrantly in all its' quirky glory (makes we wish I had read the book at the beach!) Mostly, though, the story is just compelling. It's hard to put down because it's really not clear where the story will go. Conway surprises throughout the book with interesting plot twists. ...more

What in the world jut happened?

This was more than i ever expected. It was fast paced, exciting and overall incredible. I am not usually a fan of different POV in Y.A. books because they are not usually done very well. Conway, however, does it perfectly. I loved reading about how each character thought and felt about everything, and how they perceived different problems.

The only grievance i have is with the ending. It is not the worst one i have read (that would go to Opal by Jennifer Armentrout

Now that I have a few minutes, I wanted to expand on my first comments. Conway has created an interesting world, where morality is a central theme. Although the story could stand on its own, you would be better reading book 1 first for sure. I loved how easily I was drawn into this universe and how easy it was to visualize, helped by being a Cape washashore myself. My only complaint was that I felt the moral issues could have been delved into more deeply. But the characters are well developed an ...more

I believe I enjoyed this book even more than the first, Undertow. Stormfront was able to delve further into the characters, showing their depth. It begins in the snowy Northeast and whisks you away to a tropical local described so well, that any New Englander would eagerly travel to it the middle of winter. Strong new characters are introduced, and like any great read, twists and turns are unexpected and exciting. The end= perfection.

Great read.

This is the second book in a page turning series! The first book Undertow captured you,this kept you entertained! Both left you wanting more! Very well written and every bit as entertaining as the first. I can't wait for the third! K.R. Conway is a gifted storyteller! I am looking forward to many more books in the future! Keep them coming!

I LOVE the Mortis and the Lunaterra theme that this book (and Undertow, natch) has created! Nothing like swirling powers in the mist and darkness of Cape Cod. The heat between Eila and Raef is fantastic, and the storylines are strong enough to keep the pages turning faster and faster as you get into the meat of the story. Totally absorbing, can't wait for the next.

She's been a professional journalist since 1999 when several newspaper editors lost their minds and hired her as a feature writer. She is best known, however, for her Urban Fantasy series, Undertow, which reads like a mash-up of Jaws and The Goonies. ...more
