Guardian of the Storm Reviews
1.5 starsThis is an interesting story that, unfortunately, pissed me off.Tempest spends most of her time in her own head. Not really an issue, except she was always contemplating her feelings for Kiran and his feelings for her. Mostly making assumptions and displaying her ignorance and prejudice against his people. I considered shoving bamboo shoots under my own nails after reading pages and pages of her mental meanderings. She truly was ignorant and I disliked her immensely.I really felt for Kiran, though. He had to put up with Tempest while she destroyed his life and the religion of everyone on the planet. His behavior was protective and tender, even with the language barrier. And I definitely approve of loin cloths.The nail in the coffin, though, was the slap dash ending. The whole story leads up to this one point - saving the whole freaking world - which ends up being a single, final paragraph. Like the author couldn't figure out how to make a climax happen, so she pulled a "And so, the good guys saved the day and all was right in the world. The End." for the finish. What the hell?Cliffhangers don't bother me if the book can stand on its own. But this wasn't a cliffhanger. This was a cop-out ending. I've never seen such a weak ending. A decent, yet short, ending would have taken maybe another 2 pages. And honestly, taking out some of Tempest's ridiculous worrying would have freed up plenty of space.I disliked the heroine so much and felt cheated out of a legitimate ending, that I'm left with a very negative feeling from this book. The concept was really interesting, but the author ruined it with pages of unnecessary fretting and a barely-there ending.I'd recommend this to people I want to punish with the mental anguish of an immature, desperately lonely, and ignorant "woman"...
First of all, the cover.... the man is described as being dark, with a red tint. The woman is described as being white. With blond hair. So uhm...Overall it was actually quite interesting to read, but would have been much more interesting if there was a lot more world building.
This story was a little of a surprise. I kept thinking that it was going to turn into an epic fantasy story and it was (without the epic) but with some sci-fi thrown in. Tempest is a survivor from Earth whose parents crashed into this planet but ultimately died from some sort of disease that killed almost everyone from Earth. She left with her brother and her best friend and arrived alone at an oasis. A couple of years later Kiran's there to get a drink and she yells at him to leave. It's distrust at first sight. Very sweet story. I didn't realize this was part of an anthology too, so I bought the two stories in the anthology separately and then bought the paperback book under a different title "Guardians". So beware - this story and Twilight's End are in Guardians!
i really really liked this book :)i found that this one so far is the best i have read by kaitlyn o'connor, the story was very interesting and i would have liked for the author to go into more detail about the circumstances the characters found them selves in, like how did the planet end up the way it did? and what actually happened to earth that the humans had to leave and find a new planet?also the incesent mind dialogue of tempest was abit annoying at times! anyway.... this was a great book and definatly worth reading.
A pretty short book and slightly rushed toward the last few pages but it was very much enjoyable otherwise. I missed those romances where there's no such thing as love at first sight but there is a common occurrence of hate at first sight. It takes time for things to grow between Tempest and her "Guardian of the Storm" and that was refreshing.
First line: The first rock caught Kiran completely off guard, missing his head by mere inches.
rating of a four when i read it but to be honest i don,t remember it.... yay i,ve a reread coming... maybe
