    3. 4 - "Little Bit." Stars!Its difficult to give you any real details about Tempest Rising; Julie Kenner, has been tasked with opening the Rising Storm series, and because of that, there are a lot of introductions to characters, and the families of Storm, Texas, but she does it well, and although there is a lot going on, nothing is confusing or hard to integrate into the overall scheme of the story.This series promises a lot of twists, turns, shocks and surprises with plenty of stories to be told. [...]

    4. This was pure soap opera goodness, a definite guilty pleasure! Great introduction to the series!This was just full of everything that keeps you hooked and on the edge of your seat. So much angst and intrigue. Lies, affairs, deceit. So much deception and a ton of secrets. Tons! There is a pretty big cast of interesting characters - to many to mention - I think I might need a chart to keep everyone straight. Some of them are real stand outs and I have a million questions. There are a lot of differ [...]

    6. This serial was really entertaining. It truly reads as a tv drama. If you enjoy evening tv dramas revolving around 3-4 families, then this book would appeal to you. Tempest Rising introduces us to Storm, Texas where the residents are connected in some way.We start off with best friends Ginny Moreno and Jacob Salt coming home from college to visit their hometown Storm, when tragedy strikes. Ginny is in love with a married man and has a one-night stand with her best friend. In the aftermath of her [...]

    7. Tempest Rising is the perfect storm. A storm can be both beautiful and terrifying, depending on your perspective. The rain pours, lightening strikes and the thunder rumbles and shakes the house around you. The same can be said for Tempest Rising, episode one in The Rising Storm series. In true soap opera fashion, this episode follows the scandalous lives of the inhabitants of Storm, Texas, proving that the perfect exterior you see is just a façade-- so much more lies behind closed doors. Traged [...]

    8. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: Tempest Rising is the opening salvo in a soap opera war with plenty of drama, intrigue and deceptions. This first installment didn’t have much in the way of romance but it did have some passionate scenes.Opening Sentence: Pounding rain battered the roof of Ginny Moreno’s twenty-year-old Toyota Camry, and she tightened her grip on the steering wheel even as she leaned forward, as if that would somehow help her see through the impenetrable [...]

    9. The premise of this series is to create a soap opera in book serialisation, I will start by saying MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.The third person narrative is imperative in maintaining the continuous switching between characters, laying out significant background details and controlling the plot threads. Be warned the plot is completely tangled, the characters lives interwoven on multiple levels. While I was making notes on the story, I found myself making a list of characters and how their lives were co [...]

    10. I received a copy from the author for an honest review.Interesting. the jumping around from one character to another was different from what I'm used to with this author but it did not at all take anything away from the story. The town of Storm has some major secrets and you get a taste of what they are in this first episode. I'm curious to see how this will work with different authors writing each episode, how the story will flow or how the characters will change, if at all. Welcome to Storm, w [...]

    11. mise en bouche et présentation des personnages, ça va être du soap de haute volée ^^vivement le deuxième épisode, je suis bien accrochée !

    12. ARC REVIEW From the evil master minds of 1001 Dark Nights, Evil Eye Concepts brings us a soap opera in novella form. A Julie Kenner and Dee Davis brain child together they brought together six other authors to bring life to the strife filled town of Storm, Texas. As first books in a series go this was really good. It had a great catch your attention first chapter. It introduced all the major characters and gave great insight to their personality and character. However much like every soap opera [...]

    13. recensione già pubblicata su romanticamentefantasyTempest Rising is the first installment in a new series called Rising Storm, an innovative project created by Julie Kenner and Dee Davis. Weekly will be published eight novels in this series, written by several famous authors such as Larissa Ione, Rebecca Zanetti, Lexi Blake, Jennifer Prosbt, Elizabeth Naughton and Lisa Mondello. The basic idea is to realize a “book soap opera” as those one so popular on TV in the ’80, with its dramas, twi [...]

    14. I had first heard about this series of books via Christopher Rice, who is apparently writing an episode for Season 2 (which I am super-excited about). When I heard it was a soap opera in book form, I was definitely intrigued.I bought the first episode, and by halfway through it, I knew I'd need to get the rest of the series, so I did. It is just like all the best soap operas that I've watched. And I've watched a fair number of them, from primetime (like Dallas, Falcon Crest, Knot's Landing, Dyna [...]

    15. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. To read more reviews like this one, check out Obsessive Book Nerd!A soap opera. That's what Rising Storm is. Its a soap on steroids and addicted to books. When I read about the way this series was gonna work, excuse me, season, was going work, I was intriguedeight installments, episodes, one each week, written by a different, well-known romance author. Sign me up!First off, these books are uber quick reads. Which makes since and i [...]

    16. Rising Storm Episode 1: Tempest Rising by Julie Kenner, kicks off the brainchild of authors Julie Kenner and Dee Davis, presented by 1,001 Dark Nights, and is what I can only describe as one of the most exciting and unique versions of storytelling that I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. I loved it!Ok, quick confession…growing up I was addicted to two T.V. shows: the old daytime soap, Santa Barbara, and when I got older, Beverly Hills 90210 (…and maybe some Melrose Place but I was proba [...]

    17. 3.5 stars TEMPEST RISING is the start of an 8 part multi-author soap opera set in the small town of Storm, Texas. Why soap opera you may ask? It’s because of the storyline as much as the writing. This is a series you need to read all the way through to know what happens to everyone. The novellas are not featuring a different couple in each one. I give you this right off the bat as a warning because I know a lot of people don’t have the patience or commitment for something like this. And if y [...]

    18. I received an ARC of this book from InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book's release promotions.So the publishers of the 1001 Dark Nights series decided to create a soap opera in words. Thus, Rising Storm was born. This serial is a multi-author soap opera-ish series with many characters, plots, subplots, conflicts, and resolutions over its 8-epiode run. I have read TV series-like serials, but they were all written by the same author. This is the first time I will [...]

    19. Fantastic!Written as a soap opera. And what do you want from each episode of your soap opera? Drama, tension, fulfillment, and a hook to bring you back for the next episode. You want the several story-lines to mesh and be cohesive, so you're not lost each time you visit a scene. Tempest Rising is full of all of that. We meet the characters. We are introduced to their personalities, their secrets, their lies, and we start to wonder what else Storm, TX, has to offer. Not once in the reading of epi [...]

    20. Amazing first Episode. The quiet little town of Storm is quaint and apparently full of secrets. Its inhabitants all know each other since the town is relatively small. Beneath the social acceptabilities lies an undercurrent that encompasses all the emotional turmoils possible for human beings.This first episode sets the stage introducing all the main characters. In an easy going approach, we learn all about them and their everyday lives. Tragedy has struck the town with the death of one of their [...]

    21. When I heard about the Rising Storm series of books, I was both excited and had trepidations at the same time. I was thrilled to see the authors participating but also wondered how this was all going to work and have everything flow as it wuld in a book that's written by just one author. Let's face it, eight different authors each writing an episode, it can't be easy to make it work.Well, if Book 1, Tempest Rising, is any indication of how this whole series will go, I'm NOT going to be disappoin [...]

    22. I love the concept of this new series, so dived into Tempest Rising, the first book in the Rising Storm series with high expectations.Julie Kenner has done a tremendous job introducing us to the inhabitants of Storm, giving us a tiny glimpse into their worlds before we spend more time with them in subsequent books. This is done in a surprisingly enticing way, which doesn't leave you overwhelmed by name and places. Formatted like a soap opera we learn just enough about everyone to set a scene.Uns [...]

    23. This is the beginning of a soap opera like story about a little town in Texas called Storm! It reminded me of the good old days when I watched One Life to Live and All My Children. This book had so many interesting characters and juicy plot line after juicy plot line. My head is swimming with the possibilities! So many secret relationships, bad relationships, secret obsessions and one tragic event. Everyone in this town in connected in some way like all small towns. There are plenty of shenaniga [...]

    24. This ARC was given for an honest review.This is part of the Storm series episode one.Wow! I don't know where to begin. I am blown away.

Everyone thinks they know everything there is to know about each other. They all grew up together. There are so many secrets in this town it will blow your mind. The first part of this story you meet the people of this small town [...]

    25. Aaaaaahhhh soap soap soap!!!C'est comme si j'avais regardé le pilot d'une nouvelle série! On m'a présenté les personnages (et il y en a!!! ) , les situations plus "soapesques" les unes que les autres Il y a de la morue, du connard, de la gentille et pas mal de détraqués! Enfin, on est dans un soap.C'est du Aaron Spelling!!!!

    26. Wow!! Just Wow!! This book was an amazing start to a series I just know I'm going to love!!! Move over Dallas, Dynasty, Revenge, Brothers and Sister and Scandal because Storm, Texas is the place to be. So far there has been tragedy, adultery, domestic abuse, teen love, adult love, a sexy Sheriff, a Senator with questionable ethics and so much much more. You do not want to miss this series. Pick up Tempest Rising today!! White Lightning: Episode 2 by Lexi Blake came out October 1, 2015Crosswinds: [...]

    27. Final Score - 4 Soap-y Stars!Oh boy! There was a LOT of secrets that people in this town are keeping - people sleeping with others who are NOT their spouse; teen angst/drama; car crashes; death; lies; secrets; pregnancy & more!It's all twisted up together and the town of Storm, TX will NEVER be the same when these actions come to light.I'm almost nervous/afraid to continue reading because quite a few people won't be getting a happy ending - and they shouldn't.Can't wait for the next book in [...]

    28. Back in the '80s I loved all those trashy soaps - Falcon Crest, Santa Barbara, Bold and the Beautiful, DOOL - and reading this new series is just like reliving those stories. Set in a small, Texas town, we have a sudden death, multiple affairs, bitchy teens, unrequited love, a baby of unknown parentage and spousal abuse, all crammed into about 100 perfect pages. This is the start of a serial, each part written by a different author, so I am looking forward to the next installment to see in which [...]

    29. Tempest Rising is one of the story in a collection in Rising Storm. Tempest Rising is about a town, Storm Texas. This is great stories of a town with love, lies, and sex. In the beginning tragedy strikes this town. As you read on you find the tragedy touches every family in the town. Everyone's life starts opening up like an onion. With Ginny not sure where she should live after she lie. To Jacob's dad Travis having a hard time trying to be strong for his family but wanting to be somewhere else [...]

    30. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. This booked sucked me in IMMEDIATELY! I had an OHMYGOSH reaction and I had to find out. what next!? This book definitely read like a soap opera, flipping back and forth between stories and I couldn't read it fast enough! Every story within this first book was completely interesting and I can't wait to see what each of the authors does with their episode! This concept is FREAKING BRILLANT and I can't wait for more. J. Kenner did a great job setting the stage and le [...]
