Novella Review: In the Storm + Giveaway

Contest Closed!

Debut author Karen Metcalf offered me the chance to read and review her novella, In the Storm. Carly finds herself in a new world when just moments before, she was in her normal one. The one where she lives with her sweet little brother and evil stepfather. They don’t exist in this new world… just Morgan, a boy Carly instant falls for.

I found a few things confusing at first, but Karen did a wonderful job of pulling everything together. This is one of the most unique stories I’ve read in a while. It’s young adult urban fantasy, so if you like the genre, I’m sure you’ll like this. And it’s a nice break from vampires and werewolves.


Abandoned by the world around her, Carly believes she is fated to a life of torment at the hands of her stepfather and is desperate for an escape. When she can bear the abuse no longer and gives in to a thunderous rage, she suddenly finds herself in an unfamiliar, yet beautiful, storm world. This limbo between dimensions appears to be her private sanctuary, but it may just be her purgatory. 

No one escapes fate without sacrifice, but is the price more than Carly is willing to pay? 


The lovely Karen has given me three digital copies to give away to interested readers. If you’re interested, please fill out this form. Must be 13 to enter. Contest ends: 3/31
