4.5 Exciting Stars!!

“Sometimes you have to battle a storm before you can find your calm”

What an exciting conclusion to The Empire Chronicles!! Follow Jared and Vera on the journey of a lifetime where nothing is at it seems. Jared is on a mission to find his mother and the last thing he expected was to find himself in a time veil. Now, armed with the realization that he is in the past, Jared must find a way to get himself home before any of the past could be changed. One small change could have a

Loved Jared and Vera. I found it funny it took the up to 194 pages to finally admit they both were in love. Great story

I received this ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review, I was in no way compensated for this review.

Storm is the final book in Alyssa Rose Ivy’s Empire Chronicles series, and it was one I quite enjoyed! Jared was a character that took some getting used to, but pretty much after Allie and Levi got together, he started to grow on me. So I guess it wasn’t long before I started rooting for him when this spinoff series started. Though, it wasn’t to be with Casey, as we saw in the first

"Clearly the magic has been awakened."

Storm is book 5 in the Empire Chronicles Series. As readers, we find ourselves back where it all began. But, this time things are different and it will take a village to set things straight.

"Take me for a ride baby."

A ride is exactly what Storm afforded me. Fun, fast, and full of surprises, Storm reintroduced some of my favorite book characters in a new and interesting light, with a twist, and also offered some new and unique characters. Jared and

Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?

Whew! This series really took me places. Seriously! Even back in time. Jared has been my favorite from the beginning, so I'm so happy he's met his match in Vera. Vera is a female version of Jared, so watching their relationship grow with all the bantering and chemistry has been a lot of fun. This book takes us back in time to just before Levi and Allie meet. So, there's that chance they don't meet at all this time around. Yikes! How would that change things? I

Very short, but good read. I do dislike it though, when a 'super bad guy' that has taken up five books now ... is taken out with something so very simple. You figure a super bad guy would put up a way bigger fight and things would be wayyyyy crazy/hard, etc... but with a flick of a wrist they're gone? I just can't stand those easy way outs thats why it loses two stars. Otherwise, a fun read.

This book was very different than the previous in the series, but not a let down. It had parts of all of the other book all converted into one, without making you read them all over again. I have to say, definitely worth the wait.

Once again Alyssa has delivered us another wonderful story to add to her tangled web of characters that make up the Empire Chronicles and her other series. Storm is the final book in Alyssa’s Empire Chronicles that features Jared and Vera. As usual, I highly recommend that you start Alyssa’s paranormal series from the very beginning with Crescent Chronicles. However, you can start this story at the beginning of Empire Chronicles and still catch on quickly, but you’d be missing out on some of the ...more

I finally got up the nerve to review this book. Not because it was bad, but because of the closure. Gahhh! How I love my Jared and Vera.

Storm brought many storms with it. This book had many twists and turns that often times left me speechless and scratching my head. I mean, the things that went on were beyond what I had imagined. I loved how Alyssa was able to take the plot of Storm and use it to remind me of why I fell in love with all the characters in the Chronicles. It is almost hard to writ

Vera and Jared

Jared find themselves in a veil, some sort of magical time machine. They end up about a year or so in the past just before Levi and Allie meet. Jared and Vera are in the veil for about 75% of the book. The book starts off with happy romance and then, bam!, you're in a battle on Norso with witches. The romance is sweet between the two throughout the book.

Overall, I enjoyed the book. It is obviously a must read if you read the previous ones in the series. I was frustrated at the endi

What a TWIST!!!! I'm going to admit, I didn't even read the blurb. I had no idea what to expect. I didn't care, either, because HELLO!!! JARED! So, when I started reading I was like, "WTH?!"

Alyssa, you treaded into some dangerous territory.... messing with beloved characters and stories is shaky ground, especially with the die-hard fans you have. But in the end, omg in the end you own this world, and you did such a fantastic job!

I got more Jared (you know I was happy about that) and I got more

Big thanks to Alyssa for an ARC copy for review.

The conclusion to Jared and Vera's story was absolutely fantastic. And I will never ever grow tired of the Pteron boys. I loved how Alyssa added the alternate reality into the plot because that made things mighty interesting.

All of the questions of WHAT IF? are brought to the fore front and it really makes the reader ponder. There is also new and surprising information on Jared's long lost mother that is finally revealed, especially about what s

I was given an advance copy of STORM in exchange for an honest review, and honest it is. My impressions and response to this book are true, and my recommendation is sincere.

WOW! What an imaginative and intriguing storyline. Author Alyssa Rose Ivy has taken an expected plot and turned it upside down in a most unexpected way. This is only a part of what makes this book so fascinating.

The way in which Jared and Vera’s relationship grows is wonderfully satisfying. The knowledge they gain is truly en

Well I can honestly say that this is my favourite book so far. I have to say I was not really a lover of Jared at all from the beginning I just think he came across as a complete ass and I was more looking forward to Owen a story but Jared has surprised me in the best possible way and I love every minute of it.

I loved how Vera and Jared just got each other and the banter they could have. How she made him a better man and how she gave him strength by just one touch. I also loved how we got to see

ARC given by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I love all ARIs books. The characters are real and even though the story is paranormal it still feel realistic. And that's what always gets me. Every single time.

In here all the fight that Jared and Vera were forced to face is coming to an end (but is it always? With ARI you never know what will happen next). The book is just makes you feel so many emotions, feelings. You are crying, laughing, feeling pain and everything they feel you fee

I received an Advanced Reading Copy in exchange for an honest review.

Wow! This book (like all of Alyssa's books) I had a hard time putting down. I loved how we went back in time to when Levi and Ali first met. I loved how Jared saw how much he has grown in such a little time. The ending was so sweet! This whole book was so intense I just had to keep reading to know what would happen. This one is by far my favorite. I highly recommend reading this series. I hope to read more of these Characters.

I believe every book that Ayssa rose ivy has written I have loved! I can't say I haven't loved any of her book this one included. Jarad surprised me in this book as he was always portrayed as such a player I mean that ending! I was truly not expecting that! And to think this all started with Levi and Allie story! It has been truly amazing that in every crescent chronicals series that she has written the characters and worlds all seem to be connected in some way that is so unique. I'm going to ke ...more

Jared and Vera end up in a time vail. He needs to make sure he doesn't change the past because if could affect his future. They get help from many people and Tiffany is there yo make sure its not easy. They need to find a way to erase the vail. Vera uses her ability as well and their relationship grows stronger.

$3.99 and it was shorter than most of her books. A little much for a novella.
I don't know. It felt so rushed. The whole veil idea sounded interesting, but I was hoping for a big "that's the reason!" for it to happen.
It just kind of got erased. Or I missed something. I don't know. I was hoping for more I guess.

4.5 ⭐!!! I love Alyssa's books and the chronicles are my favorite!!! Cannot wait to see where it all leads and what the end will be.

Jared is my favorite Pteron and I haven't had enough of him!! His relationship with Vera is fun, challenging and honest. Loveeee them!!

Alyssa, I just hope you give us so more love and perhaps a 6th book on the Empire Chronicles?

I don't blame Vera f wanting her man to keep his wings out, hell I'm right there with her, “please keep them out,” she whispered against my neck as she continued to stroke my wing. Her other hand moved down between our bodies. She took me in her hand." I'm sad to see this series end, I loved these characters to much, but I can't wait to see what the author comes up with next.

Wow, Jared really goes through a lot in this book. I was really surprised by all the drama and possible changes to previous stories. This was crazy and very heart wrenching. I think that Vera is good for Jared and will make a big difference in his life.

Great series. I got weary reading about Jared's magical veil. I was happy that he's found one lady to settle with. Vera is a strong woman deservingly so, and suits Jared.

Storm keep the series' storyline moving, but the original appeal of the Pteron world had drifted away.

I didn't like this one as well as I did the rest of the series. I think the time travel was to long. I assume there will be more about Jared and Vera since his mother gave him a task to complete and it wasn't done in this book.
