Storm of Arranon by RE Sheahan

Storm of Arranon (Storm of Arranon, #1)Book Description:
Beneath Erynn's petite build, curly red hair, and startling blue eyes, lies a deeply hidden secret.If the truth about her were revealed, her life would be in danger. Her dream to be a fighter pilot would tailspin, crash, and burst into flames.

Jaer's wise brown eyes reflect his smoldering strength. An enigma, charismatic and moody, he is a physically powerful warrior who defends his world. A warrior afraid to love because of mistakes in his past.

When the presence of a marauding alien society is discovered on their planets, a struggle of life and death begins. Both Erynn and Jaer's worlds face annihilation.

A mysterious force plunges Erynn into Jaer's cold, dangerous, and beautiful world with its magical essence and living consciousness. Both the alien enemy and this strange inexplicable power purse Erynn.

My Thoughts:
I liked this one.  It starts off in such a way that had me intrigued so reading on was a must!  Erynn is just a determined girl, or so she thinks.  Beneath all her 'normal' is something extremely unique.  Her powers have always been something she has hidden and thought were a big secret.  I liked the different planets and the war between the two and the alien race.  The story overall is very good and I like the mix of genres here.  
The author did a great job with her characters.  I liked Erynn pretty much all the way around.  She is strong, but kind, compassionate and smart.  Jaer is tough and a protector.  This book is obviously the set up and start of a series with all the information and characters given and the author does a good job of making it memorable and not confusing.  
It was a 4/5 for me.  I am extremely interested to see what happens next.

Thank you to the author/publisher for the review copy of this book (via PUYB).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
