Storm by Bonnie S. Calhoun

Storm (Stone Braide Chronicles #3)Book Description:
Now That Glade, Selah's Protecting Force, Is Gone, the Hunt Is On to Capture Her
Selah has survived the forces of both man and nature to reunite her family. But her happiness is short-lived as they are forced into a barren world of volcanic ash that conceals the storm boiling beneath. The clock is ticking and Selah's abilities are growing--along with the list of those out for her blood. 

Selah feels unworthy of her status as a novarium and is tortured by the knowledge of lives lost to protect her. Her physical and mental abilities will tempt her to be reckless, but she must learn to wield such power responsibly. Time is running out as more lives are tragically cut short and the search for the Third Protocol takes Selah into lands that have fallen into legend. Can Selah follow the trail of ancient artifacts and finish the quest? Or have she and her companions pinned their hopes on nothing more than a fanciful story?

Calhoun's characters race headlong into an explosive combination of futuristic technology, age-old greed, and the sacrifices for love that drive them to impossible choices.

My Thoughts:
Really good book.  This is the third in a series so it works best if you read them in order.  Selah has done everything she can to bring her family together.  That being said, she has to search for the Third Protocol and there is an urgency to that.  There was plenty of action and I felt like I was in the middle of this story along with the characters for the ride!  
Selah is coming in to her own and I've enjoyed watching this character grow and change.  Some want to kill her and others want to save her but she has so much on her being the one with all the power.  Their search leads them to new places and new people.  The group wonders who they can trust and if perhaps they have put their trust in the wrong person.  I liked the ending.  It is all tied up but the author also left it where there could be another book!It was a good book, 4/5.  As I said, the story is a bit complex so you would do well to read them in order.  Worthwhile read! 

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