Book Description:

Eighth-grader Jaycee Hiller is beginning to fear she only imagined her trip to Mallory. But when a rainy afternoon leaves her with hours of playing Hero’s Sword, her favorite video game, she finds herself drawn back into the game – literally.

STORM CLOUDS is the exciting second volume of the HERO’S SWORD saga – chronicling Jaycee Hiller’s trials in eight grade, and her exciting adventures in Mallory, the setting of her favorite video game. Jaycee enters the video game realm via a special controller and is caught up in the action of this fantasy realm.

In STORM CLOUDS, a valuable jewel belonging to the neighboring estate of Devin, the Sapphire Star, is missing, stolen at the Fall Consortium. Lady Starla stands accused of the theft. Devin’s demands are clear: return the Star or they will take it back by force.

Now it’s up to Lyla Stormbringer to find the Star and the thief. before Mallory finds itself at war.

I received both Power Play and Storm Clouds from the author in exchange for my honest review. This is such a fun series! My ten year old and I thoroughly enjoyed reading these together. I think it’s really special when you can find something worthwhile to read together. We liked getting to know the characters. Jaycee Hiller is somewhat of a nerdy girl who loves playing video games, especially Hero’s Sword. Little does she know, her video gaming experience is going to get a lot more realistic. Jaycee gets a new controller for her video game console, and winds up being transported inside her game. While I don’t know much about video games at all, this was still a fun read for me, and really entertaining.

      Since it doesn’t say anything in the terms and conditions of the rafflecopter, I have to ask, is the giveaway US, US/CA or international?

      • As long as you live in a country where purchase and use of the device is possible, you can win. For Amazon, this is fairly simple as the Kindle is worldwide. For Nook, however, I think it is pretty much limited to the US/Canada (that’s B&N’s limitation, not mine).

  1. […] Book 1: “This is a quick and fun read. The language is simple, so it is perfect for the intended audience of a middle grade child. It is full of action and I think kids will love the concept of falling into their favorite video game and living out the fantasy. “~ Bookworm Lisa Book 2: “This is such a fun series!
