I’m beyond excited to be taking part in the Absolution Book Tour hosted by Pacific & Court.
By Rachelle Storm
Paperback ~ Kindle
Perfect for fans of I am Number Four and Gone, Rachelle Storm’s debut, Absolution, weaves together an unforgettable plot of forbidden desire and sworn duty as three immortal brothers struggle to protect themselves—and all of humanity—from a corrupt world.
Chris Harris’s destiny was bestowed on him before birth, just as it was on his two brothers, John and Randy. Not human but the physical embodiment of elemental water, earth, and fire, they’ve been burdened with protecting Earth and freeing the world from the Ultimate Evil.
However, unlike their elemental forms, their human selves have desires of their own. After being hidden away in the remote town of Anderson, North Dakota, Chris and his two brothers hoped that their problems would end, but they’ve only just begun. Now their individual destinies are intertwined with the unpredictable McNamara sisters—Joanie, Victoria, and Stacie—and the Ultimate Evil is drawing ever nearer. Forced to choose love or duty, regardless of their decisions, nothing will ever be the same for the Harris brothers.
The first in a four-book series, Absolution blends together the forbidden romance of Twilight, the hidden magic and secret guardians of City of Glass, and the non-stop action of The Fifth Wave. Absolution is a whirlwind of adventure for Chris and his brothers as they explore a world more vast, and more dangerous, than any of which they’d dreamed. But now, the nightmare comes.
Author Rachelle Storm, a self-proclaimed fandom geek, has built a new world readers won’t want to leave. With a fast-paced story that hooks you immediately, this stunning debut will keep you turning the pages with straightforward writing that doesn’t overshadow the complex characters, plot, and action.
“A contemporary, modern fantasy-romance, the story is traditionally romantic and yet feminist, mainstream and diverse, with multiracial characters looking to break through the glass ceiling to shatter the expectations of what love interests and heroes in the genre can embody,” Storm says.
“The book is a love letter to the YA fandoms of the past who embraced and welcomed me as a young adult.”
Wanting to write multiracial, diverse main characters she wished would have been available when she was a young reader, Storm’s story shares her message that what we are taught to believe and told we are in the world are not the only things that define us as people.
Absolution is available now at Amazon.com. The second book in the series, Absolution: Revelations, will be published July 2022
An epic story with a fast paced plot! Once I started reading I couldn’t put it down. Once I was finished, I was left wishing the next book was out already. The characters are well fleshed out and you will find yourself picking your favorite, I’m sure. Have you ever read a book where you weren’t sure which outcome you wanted most? That is exactly how Absolution felt to me, so many choices to be made and trying to pick the correct one is harder than you did think. The writing was done nicely for a debut author, a pleasant surprise.
I’ve always loved fantasy fiction and this took it to a whole new level. It had romance included but didn’t feel cheesy. I found myself staying up late at night trying to figure out what was happening next. I thought about these characters long after I finished the book. Hurry up Book 2! I can now say I’m a fan of Rachelle Storm.
