Shiray has accepted her past and is moving forward with her life, but it comes back to haunt her tenfold. That all changes when she stumbles across the truth. Now, she must pick up the pieces of her shattered life.
They are in the calm but know when they approach the dirty side of the Cyclone storm, terrible things will unravel. The future is revealed and they get a glimpse of Fate’s course. Time is not on their side. They must attempt to change their destiny or their world will be doomed.
Sonar the Cyclone is the second book in the Sonar series, which began with Sonar the Crashing. I would highly recommend reading the first book in the series, because a lot of what happens in the second book will not make sense if you don’t.
The four royal young people who had crashed on earth are now back on their home planet with their memories restored. However, the actions that occurred in the first book still haunt them, making it difficult for them to move forward. But, when the planet is threatened, they put aside their insecurities to help save their home.
The book has a lot of good qualities. There’s definitely a lot of action and the romance is solid. However, the book could have done with a good content and grammar editing. There was an over-dependence on –ly adverbs that took me out of the story, some misspellings, some phrases that seemed unwieldy. The dialogue seemed forced and it was hard to really connect with the characters.
As I said, though, there is a lot of action and the plot itself is quite interesting. Even with the issues in the book, I was invested enough in what was going on that I wanted to find out what was going to happen next. The book ends with the planet on the brink of war—and I’m looking forward to seeing what happens next.
