George was saved by from the same tornado that took her father by a mysterious cowboy, who she is convinced was the creation of a child's traumatized mind.
Since that storm, George has had an affinity for tornadoes that lead to her work as a very specialized meteorologist.
Wyatt and Landon are a very special type of wranglers. They are Storm Riders, humans granted immortality by angels to ride the earth's storms and keep nature in balance. Very unique take on the paranormal genre. It held my i George was saved by from the same tornado that took her father by a mysterious cowboy, who she is convinced was the creation of a child's traumatized mind.
It held my interest and offered up some incredibly interesting possibilities for future books. It was first and foremost an erotic novel, and did deliver quite handily on that premise.
The sex for the most part was raunchy, not kinky frequent, and graphic. The story held it's on against the erotica, which is always a pleasant surprise. All in all, a good, quick read.

Stormriders are members of the Elemental Corps, bonded with powerful Elementals; and who protect the Three Kingdoms, though they are falling out of favor as their usefulness wanes. Angel Nayuda, Davibo's father lost his legs in a wild Elemental attack, though the man still has his powerful Earth Elemental to command. Davibo's older sister Lilliandra also called an Earth Elemental. But Davibo's secret dream is to call a Stone Elemental, like the kind that cost his father his legs. The only problem is that Lilliandra hates Davibo and wants him dead.
The young boy doesn't understand why, but he can't ignore the facts. The taunts, the bruising, the cruelty were all leading up to something far worse for the eight-year-old. Revealing her ultimate hatred for Davibo, twelve-year-old Lilliandra and her gang of adolescent A-Elementals kidnap Davibo and take him into the desert, giving him a choice: But if Davibo calls before he is ten, the Elemental Corps will do worse than kill him-they'll strip him of his only chance to be a Stormrider!

The book does settle into what I always assumed Game of Thrones would be eventually.. We also get some excellent character development from the main group, more details on the world even a bit about the near non-existent Dragons , and more foundation on how the world works. If there is anything to complain about.. Overall, an excellent book I'm excited to read the conclusion to.
I do have to wonder though, why is the marketing the cover and the description anyway so focused on the Dragons? They have a bit part, and certainly no one who's a fan of them would call this series a 'dragon' series. I can't help but think they marketed to the wrong crows..

Set in a world where the continents float on the mystical Breath of God, Storm Riders sees two nations with a bitter enmity towards one another struggling to come to terms with strange and powerful bat-ridi Storm Riders is the second novel in the Dragon Brigade series by Margaret Weis and Robert Krammes.
Set in a world where the continents float on the mystical Breath of God, Storm Riders sees two nations with a bitter enmity towards one another struggling to come to terms with strange and powerful bat-riding raiders. Tossed into the mix of political intrigue and outright action is the fact that said bat-riders are wielding a form of magic that is heresy to even think about.
Weis and Krammes have created an interesting world here with a very European vibe to it. The world is complex and engaging from the ancient rivalries to the deep religious history the world of the Dragon Brigade is fleshed out and life-like. Storm Riders delves into the nitty gritty of that world more than ever. In the novel Father Jacob visits the Dragon Duchies while Stefano and the Cadre deal and befriend several wild dragons each element of story illuminated the fractured nature of dragon society. Storm Riders definitely has more dragons than Shadow Raiders addressing one my few complaints about the first novel.
Weis and Krammes have created a fascinating culture for dragon here and one that we only get a brief glimpse at. Storm Riders is a tautly paced novel despite its apparent length with each of its multiple points of view offering a brisk pace and tons of action. With the loss of Brother Barnaby in the previous novel Weis and Krammes do an excellent job of highlighting the bond between Father Jacob and his church-appointed protector and friend Sir Anders.

Fascinating characters, a complex plot, explosive action, Storm Riders improves on the already excellent Shadow Raiders. That being said I think that the diverse number of viewpoints actually hurts the novel. Storm Riders walks a fine line between epic fantasy and swashbuckling action and I think that a tighter focus on some of the characters would result in a stronger connection to the novel. The Dragon Brigade seems to be going a bit overlooked as a series so far. Storm Riders is a strong novel that improves on many of the minor flaws seen in Shadow Raiders.
This is intelligently plotted, exciting fantasy that, while more traditional than most of the market, never feels tired or boring. I should warn you that Storm Riders does end on a cliffhanger worse than the cliffhanger at the end of Shadow Raiders that left me jazzed to find out what happens in the next volume Jun 04, Zachary Roner rated it it was amazing Shelves: After winning the first reads giveaway for this book, I scrambled to find the first in the series so I could properly review this book.
In my review for the first book I noted that Margaret Weis is still one of the finest world creators in the fantasy genre. She makes unbelievable worlds and situations seem plausible. The only hang up I had with the first one was the one dimensional nature of some of the characters, not all just some. Imagine my great joy when my only issue with the first book h After winning the first reads giveaway for this book, I scrambled to find the first in the series so I could properly review this book.
Imagine my great joy when my only issue with the first book has seemingly disappeared in the second novel. In this world there are three major political forces, two island kingdoms and the church. The heads of these three groups are continually trying to find an advantage over the other two while still maintaining a grasp on their own secrets. The agents of these three powers are sent on various quests, but they find that time and time again their paths cross and that they all truly have one common goal. To save the known world from the bottom dwellers. This book was a fun read that kept me riveted.
I found it hard to put down, and I would recommend it for sure. Mar 01, Elar rated it it was amazing Shelves: Fast paced with unpredictable turns in the story spiced with fantasy, court intrigue and dragons: Jun 06, Hesione rated it it was amazing. There was a rather emotional blowup involving Privateer alan Northrup and his big bro, Father Jacob, that managed to pull at my cold, cold heartstrings, something that rarely happens when I read books.
Granted, it was Familial Angst! Nov 01, Matthew Holloway rated it really liked it. Often, like in the real world, I kept wanting to just throw my hands up and say "Screw it! Just let them win, and watch the world get what it deserves. Mar 04, Major Doug rated it it was ok. Storyline was OK; characters were prissy; ending was weak. Apr 14, James rated it liked it Shelves: I read this without realising it was the second in a series - the copy I have doesn't mention it except on the page of 'also by these authors' and I wasn't really interested in that until page Probably that's the reason it took until the second to last chapter to work out for sure if they were airships or not.
Generally good - I read it all in a day, and easily, and only once did I wonder if the book was worth that number of pages. I was never on the edge of the seat with the action but I w I read this without realising it was the second in a series - the copy I have doesn't mention it except on the page of 'also by these authors' and I wasn't really interested in that until page I was never on the edge of the seat with the action but I was always interested to see what would happen next.

You don't love me like that! Your father is dead, and you have mistaken the desire for a father figure as desire for a husband. How is it that you know my emotions better than I? I will always be here for you, Miri Rodrigo then explains to Stephano that Dag is so extremely religious that he refuses to have sex with anyone except prostitutes, because sex is just absolutely awful and doing that to a woman you love is simply cruel.
I do hope there's some relationship building in the first book that I missed, or some conclusion in the third, because I'd fully believe a romance between Stephano and Rodrigo being developed, while Miri had very little given to her. Another classic 'does the author know their characters are gay?
Jul 01, Jennifer Lea rated it it was amazing Shelves: Margaret Weis is nothing new to me. I always expect great things from anything with her name attached and once again, she delivered. I first met her work through 'The Death Gate Cycle' some, goodness, maybe twenty years ago. This book started off with a humorous twist catching my attention from the start. Afterwards, there were a few chapters that tested my patience. This is book two in the series and I had to learn the characters I was supposed to already know.
Storm Riders by Karen Michelle Nutt
Once aquainted with and by the re Margaret Weis is nothing new to me. Once aquainted with and by the realization that the great Doctor Ellington was not a doctor at all, but rather, a cat, I really began to enjoy the story. Through thoughts and ideas of the magical constructs, the idea of contramagic, the imagination of the airships and the ruthlessness of the Bottom Dwellers, I am allowed to see a wonderful tapestry of words.
I get to know Miri, Glythe, Dag, Stephano and Rodrigo and come to love them in their own little ways. I also get glimpses into why they each have the particular personality traits, good or bad, that they possess. This book also leaves you in a cliffhanger. I can't wait to read book three. Thank you Goodreads Giveaways and the authors who put these books out there.
Keep writing and I'll keep reading. Feb 13, April rated it really liked it Shelves: I love that the main characters all have their strengths and weaknesses and quite often they just barely manage to get out of trouble so their successes are a combination of skill, luck and good friends and allies. I don't remember if I noted this about the first book but there are several points of view in this series and I know some people really get annoyed by it.
For me, it was handled well, there weren't too many and they weren't placed 'just because' but gave a good idea of wha Lots of fun.
