I received this issue for review from Sea Lion Books.
Summary: Eugenie Markham is a freelance shaman, guarding our world from the invasion of Otherworldy creatures. Those who try have "The Dark Swan" to contend with.
But Eugenie's about to cross into the Otherworld alone to rescue a girl that nobody else will. Will she make it back across alive?
Thoughts: In the second issue of Storm Born, Eugenie comes to terms with the fact she can no long ignore all the creatures from Otherworld finding her and actually knowing who she is and her real name. She finds this very fact disturbing, so she takes on case of finding the lost Jasmine.
In issue #1 Eugenie meets the very hunky Kiyo who is brutally honest, but also quite mysterious. The intimate scenes are sexy. But were tastefully done. Issue #2 finds them still in bed together, when danger strikes and the actions of Kiyo shake Eugenie deeply. A fantastic piece of the story, I'm loving the action. It's flows smoothly and grabs your attention for more. Eugenie is a much more fiercer character than I originally thought, I can't wait to read more.
Score: 4 Stars
