Review of Stormrise
Review (4 Stars): Stormrise was a great book that reminded me of the lengths that we would go to protect the ones that we love. Rain would do anything to protect her twin brother, Storm, since an illness caused him to have a developmental delay. She believed that he was the one that should have gotten the medicine and been the strong son that her family had hoped for. When war breaks out and they must send their strong second born son, Rain decides that she will go in her brother’s place and protect the family that she loves. To pretend to be a boy, Rain buys a powder which is supposed to prevent her monthly cycle but the side effect is that it was made from strong dragon magic. Now, this dragon magic is coming to light and Rain may have gotten more than she bargained for.
I liked this story and I was impressed at the lengths that Rain went to pretend that she was her brother. Many people wouldn’t have gone to these lengths and I instantly adored Rain for all of this. She became strong, independent and I believe the only person that could have dealt with the dragon magic. Epic story and shouldn’t be missed.
