    One thought on “Storm of Shadows

    1. Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) on said:

      Although this wasn't perfect (but what is perfect in life?), I enjoyed it a lot. I liked the messages here, about grabbing onto love, even if nothing is guaranteed; facing your fears head on; choosing to do the right thing, even when walking away or being selfish is easiest; and finding value in something you might have overlooked. I could go on. I feel that Ms. Dodd is finding her feet in the paranormal genre. I thought the first in this series, Storm of Visions, was rather awkward, the world-b [...]

      Second book in Christina Dodd's Chosen Ones series, Storm of Shadows exceeds expectations. After the Storm of Visions disappointment, I was wary. Dodd bounces back with Shadows, story of Aaron Eagle and Rosamund Hall. What illustrious names, you say! Rosamund's archaelogical parents named her after an English king's famously beautiful mistress, but while Rosamund follows in her parents' scholarly footsteps, she hardly considers herself "The Fair." Plain and a little frumpy, "always thinking of w [...]

      I recommend reading this one IMMEDIATELY after the first one. It's been a few months and I felt almost lost. The time frame picks up the day the first book ends Storm of VisionsBut this one was also a much better book. I wouldn't have continued on after the first book, if this one hadn't been given to me. I am surprisingly glad I did. It's not that Storm of Visions was bad, by any means, but it wasn't so fantastic I wanted to read more. I will now make it a point to finish the series. The two to [...]

      Good read although the series has yet to win the heart the way that the Darkness Chosen series did. That said, I'm still buying the booksI liked Aaron and Rosamund He's all the 'gentleman thieves' we've loved from Robin Hood through the Saint. She's the 'absent mind professor' so wound up in her work that she'd miss Armageddon. When she manages to notice the real world she is socially clueless and can't figure out what the excitement is supposed to be about.Although there is a lot of Indiana Jon [...]

      Having not read the first book in this series I was surprised to be able to follow and enjoy this book. Even though the overall story arc started in the first book I was able to figure out what was going on and follow very easily. The story itself was pretty interesting and kept my interest till the very last page. The only reason I gave it a 3 star instead of 4 was because I don't really like the clueless, innocent, bookish type heroines. I like my heroines mouth and kick-ass but of course this [...]

      Storm of Shadows takes place five days after Storm of Visions ended, it's a slow start to Storm of Shadows but slowly and surely the storyline does picks up.Aaron Eagle has gone to speak to Dr Hill about prophies for the Chosen Ones but gets more than he bargains for as the previous Dr Hill has died and his daughter Rosamund has taken over from him. Aaron isn't the only Abandoned One to seek out Rosamund, the Others have beaten him to it. Now Aaron has to use his charm and skill to distract Rosa [...]

    7. Mollie *scoutrmom* on said:

      I loved this story, I just think the hero should have opened his mouth and told the heroine of his interest instead of assuming her feelings. He knows she's oblivious, and that he needs to be specific. So what took him so long?Great plot, face-paced action, plenty of encounters with the opposition. A lot of trouble would have been saved if the boneheaded hero had just explained to the oblivious heroine that the other guy was the enemy.Well, that's realistic, that's guys for ya.Back to the keeper [...]

      I'm having a horrible time getting through this book's boring me to tears and I'm very disappointed far I haven't made it to page 100 because it's work to plow through itI hope it picks up or this will be the first dud I've read from Ms. Dodd

      As a chosen one, the hero is on the hunt for a prophecy that predicts the end of the world. And he goes to his old friend who runs the antiquity library in hopes of finding the answers he seeks before the Others have a chance. Upon arrival however, he learns that the old man has died and name as his predecessor is his bookish daughter who at first horrifies the confident, and quite vain hero. She is a complete mess. The frumpy dress she's wearing is falling apart, her red hair is in utter chaos [...]

      I usually read my books between 2 to 4 days, however, I had to push myself to finish Storm of Shadows. Although the story was interesting, it took too long to get to the goal of finding the prophecy. Not enough action or romance. Aaron is handsome, smart and able to turn into a shadow to complete his mission and to protect himself and Rosamund, the love of his life when necessary. She is plain, down to earth and oblivious to life around her. She almost sounds boring and not the right mate for Aa [...]

However, the Dr. Hall he encounters is the old man's absent-minded and naive daughter, Rosamund, who has already been targeted by the Others.

    15. Debbie on said:

      The goal was to find a reputable and learned antiquities and linguistic expert to help find a prophecy that their seer thought would give them an edge in the battle against the Others. Aaron Eagle had known Dr. Hall from previous dealings, but walking into the museum style basement of the library and finding a younger, female Dr. Hall and then finding out that one of the Others had already contacted her had put him in a difficult mood. Finally convincing Dr. Rosamund Hall to take a look at Mr. I [...]

Then a handsome stranger comes in to visit her, Aaron Eagle, inquiring about a prophecy. Aaron Eagle is part of "The Chosen Ones" and in search of the prophecy. He brings Rosamund along with him to locations all over the world in search of it. But there is a evil force at work called the "Others" whose goal is to destroy [...]

      "Storm of Shadows" by Christina Dodd. Book 2 in the Chosen Ones series.I liked this book. At first I was kind of annoyed with the main characters, Arron and Rosamund. In the beginning of the book, Arron comes off as very arrogant (ie: Rosamund doesn't give Arron the time of day when he's trying to charm her for information when any other girl would be falling all over themselves to just be near him) and Rosamund comes off as totally inept socially (ie: nose stuck in her books, not even looking a [...]

      I was amazed and thrilled at this sequel to Storm of Visions in the Chosen Ones Series! It was more fast-paced and action-packed read than the first, and the world of the Chosen and the Others was expanded just a bit more. Loved the humor and mystery in this book as well! It also had a lot more romance and sexy scenes between the hero and heroine. Oh, I'll never look at champagne the same way! *blushes* I did like Aaron and Rosamund together as a couple. They offset one another, and it just work [...]

      I can't believe it took me this long to finish this book. I started it during some bad times (which I don't recommend anyone to do if you love the author) and unfortunately it dragged, but at last I'm done. And darn if Ms. Dodd's work wasn't an addiction of mine; and for a good reason. I dare say that the first book was a bit awkward; at least for me. It didn't quite grab my attention likefrom the Darkness Chosen series. But it gave you lots of stuff to ponder and now, Ms. Dodd is bringing it al [...]

    20. Mrs Wilson on said:

      I hadn't read any Christina Dodd books before I read this series and I probably won't read any of her non paranormal books simply because they aren't the books I usually read but I did like this series and the concept. The books are based on the idea that people are born with gifts and that these can either be used for good (Chosen) or used for bad (Others).This is the second book in the series and continues on with how the new chosen ones are coping since the first installment. This book center [...]

    21. Silvio Curtis on said:

      I figured my perspective on fantasy as a genre was incomplete without sampling anything about paranormal romance. This one is second in a series but mostly self-contained. The paranormal part comes from the idea that abandoned children get magical powers as a consequence, and since the beginning of time the good Chosen and evil Others (seven at a time in each group) have been competing to control them. The Others serve the devil; if the Chosen have a god in charge it isn't mentioned. But that's [...]

    23. Haley Osborn on said:

      You know a book is good when you full out react to the things taking place and the characters. Throughout the book I was both enamored of Aaron and Rosamunds relationship as it grew to romance espeically considering Ros' personality. With all that was going on that was less than light and friendly their romance gave the story some lightness and was for lack of a better word adorable. My other reactions centered in a great deal of frustration (the good kind) with Rosamund's complete cluelessness [...]

    24. Lisa on said:

      Kudos to Ms Dodd. I have not enjoyed a book this much since I started reading Sherillyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series. Rosamund was a cool character. I liked that her intelligence was played up. So ofen it's a person's physical attributes that draw the attention for a character. Aaron, I felt, could have been expanded on more but again that's just my opinion. Although this is actually the 2nd book in the series, I had no trouble following the plotlines carried forward from the first book. Naturall [...]

    25. Jaime Atkins on said:

      I gave the first book in this series, Storm of Visions, three stars. I would give this book 3.5 stars if I could. The second book started out better than the first, but still, I had a hard time getting the point of this series until the prophecy was revealed (AT THE END!!!). Then I said, "OKNOW I get it."I wasn't that crazy about Rosamund. I think for someone who was so smart, she was really dumb. The conclusive conversation between Rosamund and Aaron brought everything together nicely, but I do [...]

    26. Ethel N. Lucee on said:

      This book is better better than the first in the series, although I prefer the characters in the first book to those of the second book. This series isn't up to Dodd's better fare; however, it is imaginative and gives us clues as to what we can expect in the third and fourth books and who those books will be about. Isabelle and Simon's relationship has become much more interesting and a fascinating new character has been introduced, the omniscient bar owner who seems to know everything about eac [...]

    27. Elle on said:

      I do love Christina Dodd.I liked this book a lot more than the first of the series but I am sad to say this series holds not flame to the darkness chosen series and I still don't really understand how they sort of fit together other than the presence of Alexandre (remember him? With memorable lines such as "mama don't squish" now he's all grown up!) but it is nothing new for Dodd to use minor characters from other series, she does it all the time.Cute coupling in this book and an interesting eno [...]

      Aaron is one of the last Chosen, and the group is desperate to find a prophecy to help them get on their way. Aaron seeks out Dr. Rosamund Hall, an antiquities librarian, to help track the prophecy down.Woot for a librarian heroine! Rosamund is the typical befuddled intellectual for the first half of the book, which takes a while to warm up to her. I am surprised with a number of the plot points Christina Dodd used, which are very unusual (killing the hero, having the "I love yous" not be the en [...]

    29. Christina on said:

      It was a good 2nd book to the series, you don't need to have read book 1, but I do recommend it, especially since Dodd is such a good writer! This paranormal romance is about a group of "chosen" people, abandoned people that get gifts. They battle against the "others", the group of gifted that decided to join the evil side. As they battle the Others during the entire series each book narrates the romance of one of the Chosen ones. In this book we have Aaron Eagle, a Native American Chosen with t [...]

    30. Mary on said:

      Dull and stereotyped. The librarian who is naive and doesn't realize she's really attractive, the Native American from the Sacred Cave, the old mentor, just feel like I've seen it all before and this didn't add anything new. Why is it there can only be 7 Chosen and 7 Others at a time? Is this like a hockey game or something? And Rosamund didn't seem smart; more like an idiot savant who is focused on her work. She does so many stupid things and doesn't learn from her mistakes that you just think [...]
