Today I’m talking about Vannetta Chapman’s latest in the Remnant Series, Raging Storm, as well as giving away a free copy of the book to one of you (more on that later)! This series is different than anything I have ever read. It is engaging, and really makes me sit back and think about life differently. I highly recommend this book to all! Please note – for those of you who recognize Vannetta’s name from the Amish fiction world (as do I and love those books!), this is NOT Amish fiction. But try it out anyways. I think you’ll like it.

About the Book
In the Darkness, Anarchy Awakens
When a massive solar flare wiped out all modern technology across the globe, the small town of Abney, Texas, was thrown into chaos. Shelby Sparks and her teenage son, Carter, have found refuge, but Shelby knows she can’t simply remain hidden forever. Carter is a type 1 diabetic in need of insulin—and Shelby will risk her life traveling to Austin to make sure he gets it.
Shelby’s best friend and high school sweetheart, Max Berkman, won’t even consider letting her make the perilous journey alone. Together, they manage to get to the capital—only to discover that while things are desperate in Abney, Austin has turned into an urban nightmare on the brink of anarchy.
Shelby and Max’s search for medical supplies will lead them into terrifying territory, where the only thing more uncertain than finding what they need is the hope of making it out of the city alive.

In this second book in an eerily plausible, action-packed dystopian series, survival will be threatened and faith will be put to the ultimate test as a raging storm engulfs America.
The Remnant Series is so interesting to read. The story really gets you thinking about what you would do if there was some catastrophic event. Are YOU ready? I’m not! And if you’re like me and not ready, what you are about to read may make you think again!
Having already been hooked on the series from book one, I have been eagerly awaiting for the release of Raging Storm. It met every expectation I had. It was exciting, scary, thought provoking and hopeful. My emotions went up and down with the characters, and my eyes couldn’t get from one scene to the next fast enough. Vannetta has a way of writing that is so remarkable. I could see every scene, feel every emotion, and truly felt connected to the characters and plot line. I know I have a good author on my hands when my brain is working on ways to help the characters! And yes, I understand they are not real 😉
I felt the underlying theme was well executed. In a world full of darkness and disarray, there are still good people trying to make a difference. That is what separates this book from book one – the inclusion of new characters making an impact on the world. It reminded me a little bit of the Left Behind Series and the group of people trying to spread God’s Word and fight all the bad.
If you have not yet read book one, Deep Shadows, I highly recommend that you do so. While you could probably get by without it, it will make things so much clearly and easier to understand in this book. But before you turn the first page, make sure you’re buckled up. It’s going to be a bumpy ride!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
