Selah's mind and life are beginning to fracture. Can she complete the Third Protocol before it's too late?

As Selah and her companions mourn the loss of those who died in the Mountain, they are faced with a new threat. Selah must complete the Third Protocol before she fractures and loses herself completely. All clues lead to the West, but what will they find when they get there? The other side of the mountains holds unknown perils--volcanic ash, dangerous storms, and strange new settlements that could hold the keys to Selah's quest . . . or lead to her destruction.

The clock is ticking and Selah's abilities are growing--along with the list of those out for her blood. Selah must find the strength within herself to keep going and complete the mission for which so many have sacrificed so much.

But have she and her companions pinned their hopes on nothing more than a legend?



Storm by Bonnie Calhoun is the third full novel of the Stone Braide Chronicles. I've heard there are novellas in between the full novels, but I've not read them, nor have I read the first two novels of this series. Yep, that's right. I haven't read the first two novels.  Sometimes I do that just to see if I can connect to the story without, and sometimes it's just because I didn't realize it was a series. The funny thing is I have both novels, and the prequel.  So I'm not sure what my excuse was other than a time management issue.

Back to Storm. Personally, it was difficult to follow along at first, since it was a rather "continued" series versus a standalone individual story. However, as you get third way in, you really are immerse with the characters and the storyline, their goal, the suspense. With all of that, I'd say the author is very imaginative and creative with her writing. Her story line is also very ambiguous that allows for possibilities of further books and/or novellas to continue Selah's story. In all, a well written story that makes me want to read all the other books in the series in sequence, and look forward to other books by Bonnie Calhoun.
