The Hurricane Wars - Audio Review

This is the first book in a trilogy.


It’s true the story needed more action, depth and character-building, but it shows promise. The world and the magic system are interesting as well.

I’ll be wanting to know what comes next.

What to Expect

  • Slow burn enemies-to-lovers romance
  • Power hungry leaders playing puppeteers
  • Slow pace at times
  • More talk, less action
  • Elemental magic and magical creatures
  • Arranged-marriage/political alliances
  • Power plays, manipulation, political strategy
  • Family complicated relationships and revelations

What I Missed

  • The romance was too slow and the couple’s conversations and insecurities became repetitive. The action romance-wise happens towards the end of the book.
  • The action progressively slowed and became more talks and less things happening.
  • The end was anticlimactic.
  • The main characters didn’t evolve much together making it difficult to feel their chemistry.
