book review storming km weiland

In the high-flying, heady world of 1920s aviation, brash pilot Robert “Hitch” Hitchcock’s life does a barrel roll when a young woman in an old-fashioned ball gown falls from the clouds smack in front of his biplane. As fearless as she is peculiar, Jael immediately proves she’s game for just about anything, including wing-walking in his struggling airshow. In return for her help, she demands a ride back home . . . to the sky.

Hitch thinks she’s nuts—until he steers his plane into the midst of a bizarre storm and nearly crashes into a strange airship like none he’s ever run afoul of, an airship with the power to control the weather. Caught between a corrupt sheriff and dangerous new enemies from above, Hitch must take his last chance to gain forgiveness from his estranged family, deliver Jael safely home before she flies off with his freewheeling heart, and save his Nebraska hometown from storm-wielding sky pirates.

Cocky, funny, and full of heart, Storming is a jaunty historical/dieselpunk mash-up that combines rip-roaring adventure and small-town charm with the thrill of futuristic possibilities.

What others are saying about Storming

“Dropping (literally) dieselpunk fantasy elements smack into the middle of an action adventure story revolving around a biplane pilot set in 1920s historical fiction was a brilliant idea. This novel is a joy to read!” Suzan Robertson

“Memorably colorful and deeply knit-together characters captain this addictively charming page-turner with dialogue that sounds like an ash bat cracking a home run centerfield and proto-European dieselpunk undertones gild an aesthetic of pure Americana, exotically nostalgic and yet somehow effortlessly resonant, making us feel every punch of action down to the last gasp of a superb climax.” Luke Taylor

“It’s just one of those stories that’s plain fun to sit down with. Rich, meaningful, well-crafted, heartwarming. I can’t remember the last book where I enjoyed myself so thoroughly in the reading process.” Schuyler McConkey

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

From My Review: I did enjoy reading Storming. The characters were ones you rooted for from the start. The mysterious Jael added a bit of intrigue even if her world was not fully explained. High flying adventures in small towns with a handsome Douglas Fairbanks-esque hero remind me of home and old Hollywood. Two things I find hard to resist. Read more.

    • Until I read Memory Lights I knew nothing about K.M. After finishing that short story, I started to research her. I liked what I found so I asked her to be In the Spotlight. She was one of the first authors I personally approached to be featured!

    You know, I’m not one for contests but have heard a lot of good things about the book and am curious.

    Not sure about new releases, have a couple items on goodreads selected, perhaps it’ll recommend something along those lines. Wolf Hall, House of Silk…
