Reviews of Spirit Storm:

"I absolutely loved all the werewolf stuff and seeing how it ties into all the spiritual goings-on was really awesome."
-One A Day YA (November 16, 2011)

"It’s always tough for any author to top what her debut novel has done but E.J. Stevens did a super remarkable job with Spirit Storm and then some. Not only has the book captured the mood and success of She Smells the Dead, it has also cemented the normalcy of paranormal beings like werewolves, not a common feat even in paranormal series.

E.J. Stevens has created likeable characters, a fast-paced plot and a fair share of romance to keep even the most picky readers engaged."
-BookTrib (November 08, 2011)

"There is a good bit of paranormal in this story with ghosts, spirits, werewolves and spirit guides. Witches and faeries even play a small part. From murderers, to kidnappings, to travels in the spirit realm, to a real spirit storm to stealing, Spirit Storm has it all.

Highly Recommended for all ages!"
-Buried in Books (October 18, 2011)

"Oh, how I missed Yuki!  Which proves how addictive this series is, seeing as I read Spirit Storm straight after I finished She Smells the Dead, but there you go.  And what a wonderful sequel!  It was just as quirky, cute, fun and such a page turner!  I found myself sitting in bed, my kindle on my lap, reading way into the wee hours.  I love this series!"
-The Book Addicted Girl (September 29, 2011)

"This series is so much fun! I’ve really enjoyed reading it."
-The Reader Bee (September 23, 2011)

"Spirit Storm is an exciting mixture of the threat of a werewolf murderer on the loose (which the gang need to track down before he can harm anyone else), and the approaching danger of Samhain- where the veil between the spirit world is at it's thinnest and therefore Yuki is most in danger of being completely overwhelmed...There is a constant sense of the clock ticking down and the tension building throughout the book."
-Always Lost in Stories (August 29, 2011)

"I have to say I'm really enjoying this series...I love how good this story makes me feel reading it."
-YA Book Haven (August 17, 2011)

"I love Yuki's personality. She is such a fun character, in fact I would go as far to say she is one of the best characters I have read in a YA series."
-My Guilty Obsession (August 09, 2011)

"Yuki is still the awesome, sassy, funny character as she was before."
-Cup of Tea Reviews (July 27, 2011)

"A thoroughly enjoyable read from my new favourite Author, E. J. Stevens."
-Books That Spark (July 22, 2011)

"I really couldn't put the book down. All the characters brought so much to this book and I enjoyed them all so much! I can not wait to see what happens next!"
-Awesomesauce Book Club (July 07, 2011)

"There were many things I liked about this story."
-A Tale of Many Reviews (June 29, 2011)

"I enjoyed this second book in E.J.'s series. I just really enjoy the characters...everyone has such a different personality. I could read about these characters for a long time and hopefully E.J. keeps writing about them as they grow together with all their gifts."
-Tanya (June 26, 2011)

"Spirit Storm was captivating...This series is the perfect balance of paranormal, mystery, and romance that keeps me wanting more."
-Reading Lark (June 25, 2011)

"Well E.J. Stevens has done it again! Written a book which instantly hooks the reader and reels them in. Again, Yuki is a really intriguing character, Cal is swoon-worthy, and the tempo of the book is very fast paced, keeping the reader on the edge of their seat the entire time. What is even better about this book than its predecessor is that the secondary characters, Emma and Simon, make such a profound impact upon us. Their bantering back and forth was so entertaining and truly the cherry on top of this book (and dare I say it, though I know that there is a bit of an age difference between them, I wouldn't mind seeing them together together in the next book of the series).

It is evident that E.J. is really developing as an author with each installment of this series- I cannot wait to see what she has in store for us in the next book in the series (slated to be released this fall), "Legend of Witchtrot Road"."
-Avery's Book Nook (June 24, 2011)

"Spirit Storm starts off at a great pace and it thankfully picks-up right where the previous book left off. The dynamics between Yuki's group of friends was so well-written that I felt like one of the clique."
-Rabid Reads (June 16, 2011)

"E.J. has a wonderful writing style that I love....her sense of humor really shines through in her stories and no matter how "ghostly" they are you can always get a good chuckle.

While it is YA I think this one is good for anyone from the younger YA readers to the older YA readers. If you haven't checked her out yet then you are really missing out. E.J. is absolutely one of my favorite indie authors!"
-The Cajun Book Lady (June 13, 2011)

"E.J.'s done it again! Yuki, Cal, Simon, and Emma are at it again. Lot's of new developments in this story and it made it more and more entertaining. This is a superb edition to the spirit series! The ending went in a direction I never imagined and I cannot wait for the next one. I shall be waiting with baited breath."
-Jill (June 10, 2011)

"I really enjoyed reading Spirit Storm. The story is unique, the characters are loveable. The relationship between Cal & Yuki is sweet & innocent. Plenty of funny moments between Emma & Simon. All in all this book is a pretty cool read with just enough mystery, suspense, laughter & romance in it. I can't wait to find out what happens next."
-Maggie (June 09, 2011)

"I love this series. This is the second book in the Spirit Guide series and it looks like there are more to come. (I can't wait!) I love Yuki and her lovable friends. These are fast easy relaxing reads with a very interesting story."
-Melissa (June 06, 2011)

"I am loving this series and Spirit Storm picks up perfectly where She Smells The Dead finished.

Danger and trouble is around every corner in this story and keeps you wanting more and more. The ending was gorgeous and now I just have to begin my not so patient wait until October."
-Kym (June 03, 2011)

"I absolutely love Spirit Storm for so many reasons! First of all, it has a fast-paced plot. It keeps going, and doesn't stop when a solution doesn't come immediately. The characters are well-developed and very essential to the plot. Spirit Storm is a fantasy realistic-fiction, and contains werewolves and smelly spirits. Yuki's sleuthing skills to solve her Samhain problems are very detective-like. It would be best to read She Smells the Dead (1st Spirit Guide Novel) to best understand Spirit Storm, including the characters and the basic plot itself. I think it is very interesting how there is fantasy, adventure, and romance all combined in one novel. It is quite original how there is a significant, yet small part in werewolves and spirits. Though the book is based on werewolves and spirits, E. J. Stevens also incorporated some high school adventures. There is also the adventure of rescuing Sam, and Cal and Yuki's romance. If you like these combinations of genres, I suggest you read this book. I rate Spirit Storm a 5 out of 5."
-Book Trends (May 25, 2011)

"I love seeing authors that branch into entirely different areas of paranormal fiction (well, fiction in general, but let's be specific here for a second) rather than sticking with the same old tried and true blockbusters, especially when they do it well.  These are great books for fans of unique paranormal YA in particular, but will probably appeal to anyone who likes a good paranormal read.  Check them out!"
-Cat's Thoughts (May 23, 2011)

"I highly recommend this series for its humor, mystery, definitely the romance and the characters are just awesome!

This is a Young Adult novel suited for any age. Fans of Rachel Hawkins A Hex Hall Series and Lauren Kate’s Fallen Series will love this!"
-Seeing Night Reviews (May 16, 2011)

"There is lots of mystery, suspense and action...I cant wait to see what Stevens brings us next."
-Urban Fantasy Investigations (May 10, 2011)

"I really enjoyed reading Spirit Storm. The story is unique, the characters are loveable. The relationship between Cal & Yuki is sweet & innocent. Plenty of funny moments between Emma & Simon. All in all this book is a pretty cool read with just enough mystery, suspense, laughter & romance in it. I can't wait to find out what happens next."
-Maggie (May 05, 2011)

"E.J. Stevens' Spirit Storm was a good followup to She Smells the Dead."
-A Great Read (May 03, 2011)

"Spirit Storm is twice as dark, mysterious, and exciting as it's predecessor, She Smells the Dead."
-A Cupcake and a Latte (Apr 23, 2011)

“This book, as with the book before, had an amazing blend of paranormal romance, action, goth, mystery, and adventure. There's a little something in it for everyone, and I strongly recommend this book.”
-The Awesome Magick Attic (Apr 13, 2011)

"I love the imagery of Yuki, her dark rimmed eyes, her doc martin boots.  Another great read."
-Dark Fantasy: Adult + YA Fiction (Apr 08, 2011)

“This book is technically for Young Adults but actually all ages will enjoy reading it.

I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a good story with a few laughs, a good mystery, some mystic happenings and some strange spirit guides.”
-Loves to Dive (Apr 03, 2011)
“Just like the first book we are told the story through Yuki’s eyes (and mind) she is still sassy, still stylish and still kick-butt.

The writing and pace are wonderful and witty. This book can make me laugh and gasp in 'oh my goodness what will happen next' fashion.

A unique story and great cast make Spirit Storm a book to read, just be sure to pick up the first book She Smells the dead so you won’t be left in the dark.”
-Far From Reality (Mar 10, 2011)

“E.J. Stevens is not afraid to step outside the boundries and get creative. This novel, like its predecessor, was a true page turner.”
-Forbidden Passions Reviews (formerly Black Rose Reviews) (Mar 9, 2011)

“A great read one that was quick and fun, with plenty of suspense and a very sweet romance that develops through the book”
-Star Shadow (Mar 7, 2011)

“Yuki is back in the eagerly awaited Spirit Guide series.  This is another “feel-good” read that is masterfully told, with witty, often humorous, dialogues and action scenes.

Again, this fabulous adventure should appeal not only to young adults but to anyone who likes characters with grit and charisma who strive always to overcome adversity – characters that will touch your heart and gladden your soul.”
-Laurie's Thoughts and Reviews (Feb 24, 2011)

“It looks like my newfound love of paranormal romance will continue, and I can pretty much blame it on one of my new favorite authors, E.J. Stevens.

It deserves to be up there in the pantheon of new PR releases, right alongside Amanda Hocking, another of my favorites in the genre. I know I will be passing both Spirit Storm and She Smells the Dead down to my daughter, and I will feel confident in doing so; confident that the messages she receives from the words Stevens has put down on paper will enlighten, amuse, and most important of all, make her think.”
-Journal of Always (Feb 23, 2011)

“Yuki's love for Calvin is well expressed. She shows that she is strony, yet vulnerable. At one point where she interreacts with Calvin's spirit, it reminded me of Claire Abshire, heroine of "The Time Traveler's Wife." Both Claire and Yuki are brought into a spirit world by meeting their respective lovers, Cal and Henry. Both young women fight to keep their love alive and overlook any oddities in their lovers' existence. They are two charming characters in two unique and memorable novels.”
-Mike Draper (Feb 15, 2011)

“I haven’t read a truly great YA paranormal in more years than I can remember, and Ms. Stevens delivers the most well written tale imaginable! There’s just enough adventure, humor, intrigue, drama, suspense, supernatural, and a good healthy dose of the paranormal to send shivers down the readers’ spine.

Absolutely beautiful, well written, adventurous, and delightful!”
-At Your Fingertips (Feb 3, 2011)

“Once again, I was delighted with this series. It is fun, exciting and entertaining. The depth of the characters, the intriguing plot and the blend of reality made it extremely hard to put down”
-Bitten by Books (Jan 24, 2011)

“Spirit Storm is the second novel in the Spirit Guide series. All of the wonderfully quirky characters from She Smells the Dead return: Yuki, Calvin, Emma, and Simon.

...this series rocks. There’s just something about it and the characters that keeps me coming back for more.”
-The Musings of Almybnenr (2011)

“Populated by mysterious supernatural beings, and mortals possessing extraordinary powers, Spirit Storm by E.J. Stevens, is an enchanting tale that transports the reader to an intriguing realm of spirits, werewolves and murder.

I highly recommend Spirit Storm to anyone looking to experience a thrilling paranormal ride through intriguing mystery, heart pounding suspense, and the pain and joy of true love.”
-Paranormal Romance Guild (2011)

“Part mystery, part adventure, part romance and all the things a reader wants.”
-Read For Your Future (2011)
