The Cloud - a review by Rosemary Kenny

When we hear of the latest disaster caused by global warming we may think - well there's nothing to worryabout, what's a little more snow in the winter or an extra week or so of cloudless, scorching Summer temperatures breaking oldrecords every year? Well you might do a lot worse than heed the what if...? apocalyptic warning,illustrated so brilliantly in E.S Richards and Mike Kraus' latest novel, The Cloud, 2nd in the Escaping Darkness series.

Wow. What an unbelievable story. Full of action. I was so lost in the story that time seemed to pass and I was finished the book. The plot and characters were intriguing. Loved it.

Natural Disaster

The survivors are still traveling to reach their perspective homes, each wanting to just survive another day. This book has interesting characters and I'd well written. I did almost give it 4 stars because of the length. But I knew going into this series that each of the books were short.

Truly recommend thus far!

There is a little less action in this book, but a lot of immersion in the effects of the eruption of the supervolcano. My main issue is that some of the characters are a bit hard to bond with. Mia is clearly a very capable scientist and has the capacity to be a strong leader, but she often comes off very wooden. I do like Chase and the grandparents a lot, also young Riley. The writing still flows well with minimal errors. This does set up for a long journey for most of the folks here.

Another enjoyable episode.Mia is finally out of the airport only to find so much devastation from the eruption, as she had expected, trying to get back to Houston is going to be a very difficult and dangerous journey. Meanwhile her niece and nephew along with her parents are having a battle of their own, the farm is starting to fall apart and it’s up to the kids to save it. Recommended reading, will be reading the next one.

Would have given it five stars but....

Still a great story teller, Mr. Kraus weaves a very believable tale of “what if”. Interesting characters as usual, draw with confidence so we become invested in their future. However I prefer thrillers to horror stories. The drawn out gore details made me sick to my stomach which interfered with my enjoyment. I will still eagerly read the next book in the series!

The excitement and drama continue in the second book of the series. As with the first book, the second book is jam-packed with excitement and unexpected twists and turns. Highly recommend!!
