Well, I finally got around to reading this. I had pre-paid for it and thought that I would re-read the series before starting it, however that was an undertaking I did not have time for. So I just re-read the one before. I started out kind of nervous because the last few books have been all about running the protagonists ragged but getting no resolution or character growth, plus cliff-hanger endings. So wasn't looking forward to that.

It was only after reading a recent review here on GR that I decided that maybe I could give it a chance. Previous beta reviews all said that the book was a big mess of action but again, no resolutions. I'm guessing a massive rewrite took place since this book was so pushed back in release dates.

The upside - some arcs are resolved, some answers were given, many backstories were revealed and detailed, there were more than a few sexy-times, and character motivations were revealed..

The downside- Again Cassie is basically thrown into every possible crappy death situation, she is knocked down so hard that I couldn't believe she got up. Also, she is bening given so many arbitrary obstacles that I just about tossed my Kindle across the room. Couldn't she just get a damn break? However, Rossier made for a lot of comic relief. Also note, it was such a convoluted story with so many things going on at once, and for so long that I found myself skimming because there is just so much detailed descriptions of melee fighting that I could endure. Also, you will find that the book is long, and so you think so much is going to get resolved, but it is basically a crap-ton of filler for what shouldn't have taken so long.

You can skim through some things, but there is backstories and snippets that will prove helpful later in the book, so do it with that in mind if you must.

All in all? I liked it, but don't think I could do it again. ( )

Not her best work. I knew where the plot was supposed to be going, but it seemed to circle the actual meat of the book a lot, and where she could have expanded on storyline, there seemed to be a lot of useless exposition. It wasn't bad enough to make me stop reading the series, but here's to hoping she gets some of her mojo back for the next one. ( )

Another amazing read in the Cassie series, I couldn’t put it down. Each book that I read in this series leaves me hungering for more. I read an array of books in the fantasy genre, but these and the Dory series, are hands down my favourites. Karen manages to build such an amazing world and set of characters, that you feel immersed within it. She effortlessly manages to build suspense, delivers enrapturing storyline and answers all your questions and theories over the development of the series. How she navigates writing these thrilling series, I will never know, but I cannot fault her one bit for her brilliant, precise and perfect delivery. If you haven’t read the rest of the books in either the Cassie or Dory series, then I recommend that you do, as you will not be disappointed. ( )

I just finished Ride the Storm and I feel gobsmacked. Or maybe god-smacked. So much happened. Cassie is still trying to save Pritkin. And the world. Both in her own time and at Arthur’s Court in Camelot. She’s still being assisted by Rosier and dodging past Pythias. And Billy Joe finally earns his keep!

Some new characters are introduced and Cassie receives help from some unexpected sources. There are too many battles to even list. Mircea shows his true face. And so does Rosier. While I’ve never been a big fan of Mircea, his manipulations never cease, I now find Rosier to be much more likable.

The character development and writing in this series is top notch. Karen Chance never disappoints and always leaves you wanting more. I am so glad the next book comes out in a week because I must know what happens next!! I can not recommend this series highly enough. A must read, but start at the beginning and read in timeline order! ( )
