Raging Storm: Review by Susan Scott Ferrell


Raging Storm – Not Amish, but Amazing!

So, no surprise that I am a fan of Amish fiction. It draws me in like no other. But I seem to have found another genre to pique my interest: Dystopian (the opposite of Utopian). I was already a fan of Vannetta Chapman’s Amish fiction writings when I was given the opportunity to read the prequel to her Remnant series, Overshadowed. I was completely hooked. If you know me, then you know I’ve GOT to read things in order! I snagged a copy of Book One, Deep Shadows, before venturing into Book Two, Raging Storm. It is a serious page-turner! Mark my words: You will lose sleep reading this one!

Raging Storm picks up where Deep Shadows left off. Shelby and her devoted crew of friends are headed to Austin, along with the mysterious Dr. Bhatti. It seems that every corner, every road, every person is a problem waiting to happen. But Shelby is determined to get the much-needed insulin for her son Carter. Even if they CAN get to Austin, will they make it back? Carter is in High Fields with Max’s parents. High Fields has been tame and protected – until now. Who is the case of this danger in their little farm community?

I was given Raging Storm in exchange for my honest review. It was exceptional. It can be read as a stand-alone, but I HIGHLY recommend reading Deep Shadows first to give the story greater, richer context. Chapman’s writing is tremendous. I truly felt the struggles of Shelby’s group, and cheered them on all the way – and even got mad a couple of times! It’s been a while since I’ve read a book of this caliber. I just could NOT put it down. Bring on Book Three…NOW! I need my dystopian fix! If you liked the TV series Jericho, then you’ll love Raging Storm – which could easily be made into a movie or miniseries!

Susan Ferrell and her husband make their home in the Atlanta Metro area. Although Susan struggles with chronic migraine headaches, she stays very busy as a stay-at-home mom to one very precocious little girl. While catching her breath, she feeds her Amishaholic tendencies by reading vast amounts of Amish literature!
