In the Darkness,
When a massive solar flare wiped out all modern technology across the globe, the small town of Abney, Texas, was thrown into chaos. Shelby Sparks and her teenage son, Carter, have found refuge, but Shelby knows she can't simply remain hidden forever. Carter is a type 1 diabetic in need of insulin—and Shelby will risk her life traveling to Austin to make sure he gets it.
Shelby's best friend and high school sweetheart, Max Berkman, won't even consider letting her make the perilous journey alone. Together, they manage to get to the capital—only to discover that while things are desperate in Abney, Austin has turned into an urban nightmare on the brink of anarchy.
Shelby and Max's search for medical supplies will lead them into terrifying territory, where the only thing more uncertain than finding what they need is the hope of making it out of the city alive.
In this second book in an eerily plausible, action-packed dystopian series, survival will be threatened and faith will be put to the ultimate test as a raging storm engulfs America.
Raging Storm is the second book in the dystopian, The Remnant Series, by bestselling author, Vannetta Chapman. Raging Storm picks up where the first novel ends, so it’s very important that you have read Deep Shadows to fully appreciate this story. While Deep Shadows could be read as a stand-alone, you will not want to miss out on the prequel-novella, Overshadowed.
Once again, what impressed me so much about this book is the complexity of the characters. Shelby, Max, Patrick, Bianca and Farhan have set out for Austin, Texas to find insulin for Shelby’s son. They face many challenges along the way that lets us get to know each of them more. Shelby can be self-centered and anxious. Bianca is loyal. Patrick is driven by duty and friendship. Max is a voice of reason and the anchor for Shelby. Last, Farhan, though he is somewhat an enigma, has proven to be a kindhearted addition to their group.
Raging Storm will force you to consider a world where everything has changed. When all hope has been lost, the true nature of humans becomes evident. Fear and greed mingled with grief has driven even the most unlikely of characters to terrifying depths.
This book (and series) has been a riveting and I cannot wait for the release of the next installment, Light of Dawn which is set to be released on July 1, 2017. You can pre-order the book on Amazon for $14.99.
