Did you hear that sound? That sound, right there? Okay, well, it's either the sound of my heart forsaking Mead for all eternity, or there's a murderer whose broken into your house and is SNEAKING UP BEHIND YOU!!!!!Look over your shoulder just to check that I'm wrong. You know you want to do it!Storm Born, the tragic tale of a woman forced by cruel fate to be hit on by ALL the men. Yes. That's what this story is about.

"You would do better to find someone milder and more malleable. Someone less ambitious."I considered his words. Maybe he was right. Maybe. "Men without ambition are boring.""And that attitude, mistress, is why the females of your kind continue to struggle for equality. And why they continue to fail." #toorealStorm Born follows the adventures of Eugenie Markham aka "Odile", a shaman who banishes ghosts, elementals, and fairy gentry in odd jobs from her home in the desert.

Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestWhen I was a teenager and did not know the difference between good fiction and bad fiction, I used to sit and read stories on this site called Quizilla - which, funnily enough, mostly had bad fiction. There, I read a lot of anime fanfiction and original fiction paranormal romance stories usually involving vampires or demons. One of the common themes? The heroine was nearly always a virgin and whoever won the sexual race/lottery and got to have sex [...]

Reviewed by: Rabid ReadsRichelle Mead is one of those authors who's grown on me, slowly but steadily, since I first discovered her ten(ish) years ago. At this point, I've pretty much read everything she's written (BLOODLINES being the one exception), but for whatever reason, she's never one of my obvious choices whenever someone asks me who my favorite authors are.DARK SWAN is a perfect analogy for my relationship with with Mead. My most recent (and more than likely last) reread of the series ha [...]

This is one book that I have mixed feelings about. There were some aspects I really likedd some, not so much.I'll go into the negatives first:Quite frankly, this book read like Eugenie's Adventures in Paranormal Dating to me. I am just not a fan of chick-lit, and that whole aspect was sort of a turn off to me. I felt that there was too much emphasis on Eugenie's sex/dating life, and her status as a highly sought-after sex partner, for whatever reason. That left me cold. In theory, it was interes [...]

Read with the Urban Fantasy crew at Buddies Books & BaublesWARNING: BEWARE OF THE BERMUDA-LOVE-TRIANGLE: Okay look love triangles are one of those things that I will put up with in a story if I like everything else but at the same time they bug the shit out of me. Emotionally I struggle with them because I’m an ALL-IN kind of girl so I never really understand it. I’m the kind of girl that always just casually dated until I found one person that I meshed with better than the others I was [...]

I love Mead's Vampire Academy series, like Succubus books as well; naturally I expected to enjoy Storm Born too. Unfortunately, I was wrong. In fact, I couldn't believe how bad it was. Did Richelle actually write this?First of all, the plot itself was very weak. There was no point to the story, no climax, just a few things thrown together with no purpose. Events seemed to have been made up just to fill in the space between the sex scenes. Characters were unrelatable, unlikable, acted irrationall [...]

This was a pretty average first book in a series. It wasn't bad and it wasn't really good, it was justere. The world building wasn't particularly developed, which was rather disappointing. Because I found Eugenie irritating and her love triangle boring, I was hoping for an intricate world to capture my attention. No such luck.The beginning of this book seemed to crawl by. Maybe it just felt tedious as the author set up the story and world? I don't know, all I know is that it dragged until about [...]

I could not get into this at all. I'm a big Richelle Mead fan since reading her Succubus series but I feel she majorly let herself down with this one. I didn't care for Eugenie Markham once during this novel, I felt no real connection with her and she didn't even have the witty sarcasm that I so loved about Georgina Kincaid. The plot was weak and just generally messy, that's not even mentioning the weird mythology overkill that interested me about as much as watching paint dry I couldn't tell yo [...]

I thought about whether this was one or two stars while I was reading the last forty pages. I already knew we'd sailed right on by three stars. Even though I enjoyed Mead's YA series this book was ultimately not for me. First and foremost, I am not a big fan of fairies. Authors usually try to make these ancient myths their own and inevitably fuck it up. Mead's no exception here. It might have been passable, but the world building was half-assed. I don't think Mead really knew the rules she was t [...]

*** 4 ***Another Wednesday, another Urban Fantasy series Because we love the Fae and all the chaos that surrounds them at BB&B!!! We got dunked in action from the first sentence in this first book of the "Dark Swan Series". Eugenie Markham, aka Odile Dark Swan, is one baaaad chick!!! She is confronted by an ancient Death Spirit, who so happens, at this moment has moved to live in a dude's shoe! And not just any old shoe, his lucky racing fancy sneakers!!! Not to worry! Eugenie has been calle [...]

I knew it was going to be a different sort of book when the first couple pages talked about a haunted shoe. I can’t say that I have ever read a book with haunted clothing before. One of the things I appreciate in the over-crowded world of urban fantasy is when an author makes an attempt to build a world with interesting and unique creatures. If the only thing you read about is vampires, that can be very boring. I liked Richelle Mead’s world building in this book with elementals, water spirit [...]

Not a bad start for a new series!While I can't say this book was "wow!!", it was good enough to make me really curious about the next one.I like the world builder and I love the fact that it's fast-paced.Dunno what to say about the main char yet, but she has potential. Let's see how this goes!

Fascinating! I couldn't put "Storm Born" by Richelle Mead down! I read her 'succubus' series, but this is so much more. More fantasy, more characters, more worlds, and WAY hot fae, humans, and shifters (kitsune).Eugenie, Odile, Dark Swane's all these, and now she's about to find out that she's also so much more she never knew. Eugenie is a powerful shaman who banishes spirits and fey out of the mortal world into either hell or back to their world, depending on their crime. She's never actually m [...]

Dare I say I loved this more than the Georgina Kincaid series? Well at least, compared to Succubus Heat, Storm Born is better written, more exciting and most of all: funnier. Meet Eugenie Markham aka Odile Dark Swan, a powerful shaman who protects the human world from Fay, spirits and other Otherworldly creatures. Due to a series of unfortunate incidents, attacks for her life, a conspiracy and indecent proposals from just about every male Fay creature, Eugenie finds out some pretty interesting t [...]

2.5 starsI can't write a review about this but here are my thoughts:Pros:1. I liked the worlds Mead built in this one. Complex and simple at the same time and very intriguing.2. It was fast paced, full of action and easy to read.3. There was a love triangle, something I like lately.4. There was a lot of chemistry and passion between the heroine and one of her potential love interests and I really liked them together although most readers disagree with me.5. The second hero although bland at the [...]

DNF - 54%Yes, well, I am at 54% and I'm going to stop. I honestly don't care much about any of the characters. Eugenie? Strong, but not so strong, but strong. And she hates fairies, but she kind of likes them after all, but she hates them. Bah! So annoying. Not to mention she tells her stepdad that faeries are out to bed her, but he keeps quiet about everything. And the big-evil-father is so obvious, I dare people to say they did not see that one coming.Kyio? First guy to get inside Eugenie's pa [...]

Very much enjoyed this book while realising simultaneously that I am a crushing book snob! When wondering how many stars to give this book I wanted to give it 4 stars. Then I thought about a couple of real (here comes the snob bit) 'quality' books that I have also awarded 4 stars. Was one type of book 'better' than another? How do we measure a book's worth. Is it an intellectual exercise, an emotional one? Well I'm sure we would answer this in different ways. I think for me, I measure within a g [...]

Fun fun fun! I love Vampire Academy but I haven't been able to get into the Georgina Kincaid books as much, so it's great to find that this series is so entertaining. Eugenie, like all of Richelle Mead's heroines, is a kick-ass character and both Kiyo and Dorian are appealing in different ways. Some great action scenes, in both the battle field and the bedroom. Looking forward to starting Thorn Queen.

I friggin' loved that this UF had a kitsune! How cool is that?I love Richelle Mead -- her Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series are two of my absolute favorite YAs and UFs so it's about time I got around to starting her adult series. :P

Storm Born has one of the funnier opening scenes that I have read in a while involving a haunted shoe. It also has a very sexy fairy king who is very good at tying complicated knots. Add in a prophecy about the heroine's unborn and unconceived child, and a shapeshifting fox, and you have a very fun read.Eugenie Markham, or Odile Dark Swan is a shaman who banishes spirits and fey from our world. She is hired to find a missing human child and must travel to the Otherworld to find her. There, she d [...]

This is a decent start to a series. Solid world building and interesting charcters are introduced. It is a very sexy book - shockingly sexy almost. But for me, something kept it from being great. I did not connect with the heroine and I almost didn't care what happened. I enjoyed her interactions with Kiyo and Dorian and then her interactions with her imprisoned spirits, those were the highlights for me. I listened to the audio and the narration is decent.I may just be all Meaded out as I just f [...]

I wanted to read storm born because I have really enjoyed all of Mead's books, both adult and young adult. I have avoided this one for a while because I wasn't really sure about the whole shaman aspect of it but I think I just didn't really understand what that meant. The main character is Eugenie and she basically uses magic to banish creatures such as the fae or other creatures that are causing problems for humans. She either kills them our she send them back to the Other world. The romance in [...]

This is the first in the new Dark Swan series by Richelle Mead, author of the incredibly successful Vampire Academy and Succubus novels. Eugenie Markham (aka Odile) is a head-strong and independent character who is instantly likable. The opening few pages quickly sucked me into Eugenie's life as a Shaman with humour and combat as she fights to banish a spirit from a haunted running shoe! This book is full of action and for the most part the plot is fast-paced and when one fight ends another one [...]

Much to my chagrin, I did not like Storm Born. I was just irritated from start to finish with this book, and the source: Eugenie Markham. For some reason, I just could not stand Eugenie. Throughout the whole book, I just kept thinking something along the lines of, "Wow, Eugenie is really a bitch." I don't even know where to start with what I didn't like about her, so suffice it to say that I didn't.I actually liked the idea of the book, but Eugenie as the narrator diminished that small flame of [...]

One of my favourite books. However, I wish there was no Kiyo - he's annoying and taking too much space. Dorian should be there more, like all the time!

Initially, this book was rated 2 stars but because I'm a sadistic, spiteful bitch I knocked a star off because I realised that Storm Born is just a soap opera within a soap opera. In a nutshell, Storm Born is a melodramatic pile of bullshit that could put Days of Our Lives or Eastenders to shame. First of all, I love faery folklore or any mythology of any sorts so this book perked an interest for me— only I was disappointed. Mead's attempt at world-building just seemed rushed and I don't think [...]

For a heroine who is supposed to be totally badass and the most feared shaman of all, Eugenie Markham finds herself in some incredibly hairy situations where she is powerless to save herself. What drew me to this book was not only because it was a title by Richelle Mead, but because the back cover of the story read to be incredibly enthralling, you've got a shaman with magical powers and a Glock, fairy kings, a shapeshifter, what's not to like?It turns out that the book is not what it seems on t [...]

Eehhh. What a mess! Here is the list of unnecessary things in this book(in no particular order):1. Hot main character who I don't think is hot2. Every man/faerie wants to shag her3. Love triangle4. Having sex with two different guys on every 70-100 pages5. Idiotic main character6. Having almost rape scenes at least 4 timesand so on. As you can see,my two biggest concerns were with Eugenie and her wild sex life. She jumps from Kiyo to Dorian all the freaking time. And of course everyone wants a p [...]

Even though it took me a while to read this book, with other books coming out and all the trips I've been going on, it was amazing. I am a HUGE Vampire Academy fan, so when I went to Borders to get a few new books I wanted to read Richelle Mead's Succubus Blues series. Unfortunately, they were out of stock of the first installment, so I went with the Dark Swan series instead!I felt so much of a connection with so many of the characters. It was so hard not to feel for them. The story was great, a [...]
