After a harrowing escape from the SYLO occupied Pemberwick Island, Tucker Pierce and his surviving friends have finally reached the mainland, only to find that no one is left. The once bustling seaport city is deserted.

From the bowels of a Portland hospital where they encounter their first fellow survivor to the abandoned stores they must raid for supplies, Tucker, Tori, and company set off on a quest for answers and, for Tucker, vengeance. But as one highway gives way to the next — and one death-defying escape precedes another — Tucker soon realizes that “trust no one” doesn’t just mean the U.S. military.

          The idea of the United States being at war with itself is something I thought only happened in history class. However, for D.J. MacHale, this is happening and the world we have known is changing and it is not for the best.

          Storm was a whirlwind of action, adventure, romance, and possible all human-eradication. This book swept me off my feet and took me on an adventure where I wanted only more. Sylo caught my interest; Storm left an impact.

          Tucker is a character that is going through so much in this book, losing his home being one of those things. I feel that there was development from the first book to now but I feel that he is still acting to rashly on some things that not only put him in danger but also the people who follow him. We meet some new characters where the idea of trust is definitely put to the test in this book. Each character brings something different to the book.

          The romance in this book was not to my full liking. I felt the characters were everywhere and one reacted without thinking and her next move was something I lost a little respect for however, she gained it back in the end. I think one of the couples in the book was one that had its ups and downs but in the end we saw that they really loved each other. This goes with the saying, loves conquers all.

          I am highly looking for the next book and cannot wait to see what new adventures come in the final installment of this trilogy. D.J. MacHale has captured my attention once more and I want all readers to read and see where the United States stands.

I give this book 4 bites!
