Up until recently, Penelope was a witch with no magic. After having it stolen by a demon when she was just a child, Penelope had been forced to rely on sharing others’ powers as she went through the grueling training required to become an elite demon hunter. Now Penelope has more magic than she’s ever known. And when you’re this powerful, who needs salt to keep the demons ...more

*I received an e-arc of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Storm was a solid sequel to Salt. In some ways, it felt like an even stronger book. The writing and the story seemed a little better. I was excited to continue this series and I'm happy to say that I really enjoyed reading Penelope's story.

Salt was a fun read, but Storm felt more serious. Penelope changed and became a darker character as she struggled with her magic. As she did that, Carter became more and more worried. The stake

Penelope is back and now she is definitely not a witch with no magic. She is a witch with a ton of magic, but the question is where is she getting it from and is it stable? Is it safe? Carter is asking those questions daily and hoping she will listen to him and not use those new powers...but they are just sooo tempting...as she's drawn farther and farther into the spider's web...

My thoughts: This is such a fun and different twist on witches! I love this mixture of witches and demons and school.

This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV. Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here. Graphic and children's reviews on the blog typically feature two or three images from the book's interior, which are not reproduced here.

Note that I don't really do stars. To me a book is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate it three-

First book was awesome, this one was slow and dragged.

This spoiler-free review was originally published on my blog; BookCrushin on 10/7/14.

Let me start off by saying I adored SALT (check out my review), and I can say that STORM was a fantastic follow-up! When I read Salt, I wasn’t even sure if a sequel was being published, so when the author, replied to me saying there was going to be a sequel and it was also releasing this year I was so crazy excited! I freaking adore YA paranormal series…hell I adore almost all YA novels and Storm was a perfect

A little salt. And a whole lot of magic... Up until recently, Penelope was a witch with no magic. After having it stolen by a demon when she was just a child, Penelope had been forced to rely on sharing others’ powers as she went through the grueling training required to become an elite demon hunter. Now Penelope has more magic than she’s ever known. And when you’re this powerful, who needs salt to keep the demons away? But power has a dark side. Carter Prescott just wants to hunt demons and be ...more

Okay, I fully enjoyed reading Salt, the prequel to Storm, back when I read it earlier this year (or maybe it was just Penelope's voice). Plus, I probably spent too much time talking about Sodium Chloride and onion rings in that review.

Talk about a bit of embarrassing. It's a bit too late to do a re-review though. Or... is it?

Basically, I had high expectations for Salt's sequel because when the first book in a series is really good, the second book has to be equally good or better.

Problem: Storm

'Storm' is the second book in a fast-paced and thrilling young adult paranormal series that revolves around witches, magic, and demons. It picks up right where the first book left off. Penelope - our main character - has finally come into her own as a witch. She no longer has to rely on others for their powers, because now she has more magic that she ever imagined. On top of getting her magic, she also became an Enforcer - a group of elite witches that hunt and kill demons. Now that everything s ...more

Salt was an awesome start to this paranormal series, and I was really excited when I heard about the release of Storm. Though I did enjoy being back in this world and learning more about how magic works here, I didn't love it as much as I did Salt.

After the events of the previous book, Penelope now has access to the void. She and Carter are both halflings, but both deal with it in different ways. Penelope begins to change, and Carter doesn’t know what to do abou

3.5 - Review refers to a review copy supplied by the publisher.

Storm is the sequel to Salt, in which we met Penelope, a witch with no magic, and Carter. Storm picks up soon after the events of Salt. Pen and Carter are working as Enforcers, protecting the Nons from demon attacks, when suddenly Statics start manifesting magic, but with no knowledge of how to control it, people are soon getting hurt. It seems that the events at the end of Salt have led to this, and Penelope feels responsible. Thin

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

While reading "Storm" I found myself on few occasions thinking that it might be nice if the author had provided a bit more of the backstory for certain events or references made in the book. Not that the story was significantly lacking in any way, but just that it might enhance the story a bit further. But the references to these events and people were sufficient enough that I had no problem following what was happening and enj

* I received this novel from Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review*

Storm by Danielle Ellison was a nice follow-up/sequel to Salt. I absolutely loved Salt. The premise was so intriguing. I enjoyed the demon/witch angle and how those two entities were cleverly intertwined. Not all is good and not all is evil. It'll keep you on your toes.

I enjoyed getting back to the two main characters I came to love so much in the first installment...Penelope and Carter. I liked the way Ms. Ellis

It's very rare that I love the first book and not it's follow-up, but that seems to have happened here. I really enjoyed Salt, but I'm afraid Storm didn't do it for me. I can't quite put my finger on the reason - it just didn't go in the direction that I envisaged the story taking I guess. It kind of feels like things could have ended with a bit more finality in Salt, and Storm wouldn't really have been necessary. Either that, or it could have become a series in which the enforcers have a differ ...more
