Before the Storm (A Windwalker Novel) by Claire Ashgrove

Before the Storm - Claire Ashgrove

There is a whole lot of good stuff going on in this book. Halle has been on her own for years - ever since she called down a storm and killed her father. She is a very hard person with quite a huge chip on her shoulder. At first I didn't really like her - but after she met Kale and realized that she wasn't some big freak of nature, she became more of a person that I really enjoyed. Her past attitude was quite understandable as more of her history becomes clear. 

But her new family isn't everything they are making themselves out to be. So when Halle realizes it she is far from happy. With powers that no one seems to completely understand, she strikes off on her own only to find herself in way over her head. 

I loved the lore that was built into this world. With such a deep history at its foundation it was very easy to love it. There was tons of action that got really exciting and tense - both magic and physically. This book had a taste of everything I look for in a good paranormal. I only wish I had liked Halle better the beginning.
