Book Review – Storm by Gurpreet Kaur Sidhu

I was given a copy of this story for my 100% honest opinion.
The first in a series, Storm is a twists-and-turns thriller driven by compelling characters challenged by dangerous forces, both external, internal, and eternal.

Evan Storm had been confronted by his past (an unpleasant one at that) in his dreams, and now in his waking life. He is struggling to reconcile the evil that lurks in his soul. Shadow Hex is his new neighbor, who also fears a dangerous past – her former fiancé who works for the Secret Eye Agency (which is as shadowy and sinister as it sounds). Does Shadow hold the key to Evan’s redemption? Is redemption even possible?

Review –

What would you do if the universe gave you a second chance? Would you take the opportunity to redeem the wrongs of a past life? Would you do everything you could to find all the answers so everyone could get a happily ever after? Evan and Denise Storm were raised by their Grandma after their parents accident. Perhaps Grandma Venice could have stopped the tragedy of Evan and Denise loosing their parents with her gift of sight. What other secrets is Grandma hiding? Evan has flashes of a past life where he was married but mistreated his wife horribly, then Shadow shows up next door and all Evan can do is notice that she looks exactly like his past life wife. Is this his chance to right the horrible things that his past self did, or will Shadow’s ex-fiance force her to come back home before Evan can right some wrongs.

Storm by Gurpreet Kaur Sidhu is not the usual story I go for. There is a lot of characters to follow, a lot of history to follow and some special gifts that drive this story. For me, the first few chapters were a little slow and I had a hard time following all the different characters, their relations to one another and where they came from. But in a flash something clicked and I found that I could not put this story down. At times it gets dark and graphic, some situations may be hard to read. Once I understood the characters I was able to invest in each of their futures, just waiting for the chapter when I would get to read more about Samantha and Derek or Evan and Shadow. I love the idea of past lives and a kind of undeniable destiny that continuously drives people to one another. I’m interested to see where the story can continues from here. I would recommend Storm to anyone who likes mysteries, thrillers and likes the paranormal.
