Everything Isadora Starling wants is right there in front of her, but Toryn is off limits; he's her best friend. She has been denying her heart all these years, afraid to lose him.
Toryn Flame has a long past full of secrets, none of which he can share with Isadora, the only person who truly matters to him. She's the one woman who has never shown a hint of lust toward him, but even if she did, pursuing her is forbidden.
That all changes when the family Isa doesn't know decides it's time to reveal who and what she is. After Isa's recent attack, their motives are unclear.
His only goal is protecting Isa. Toryn will do everything in his power to keep her safe, including going against orders from his king.
Toryn's only fear is losing Isa's trust. Once the truth is revealed, can she forgive him for years of misdirection and omissions? Can she come to terms with a world she doesn't want or know?

A Fantastic Read!
This is the second book in the Others of Seattle series. I really enjoyed it.
I decided to get this book in audio format, since I had listened to Night's Embrace this way. This book is again narrated by John Lane, who did a wonderful job in bringing the characters to life.
Isadora Starling is a wonderful character. I like her strength and determination. She has felt a strong attraction to Toryn ever since she met him, but he's never shown any interest in her. When a stranger brings danger into her life, she turns to the only man she can trust.
Toryn Flame is also a wonderful character. I really liked him. He is a little mysterious and I enjoyed getting to know him better. He is determined to resist his attraction to Isa, as he has a mission to fulfil. Unfortunately, danger forces him to face breaking Isa's trust and reveal secrets that have been kept from her; that's she's a Fae Princess and has power over the five elements, fire, air, earth, water and wind.
I started to listen to the story and was quickly hooked. I found myself on a wild ride of action, danger and romance. The story is told through the eyes of several characters, though Isa and Toryn have the most say. I love meeting Toryn's mother, though she scared me a little. I also found myself intrigued with the dragon, Adanathos (sorry, not sure of spelling), who was only in a few scenes. I also enjoyed meeting Leon, Toryn's friend.
I enjoyed watching Isa grow into her powers. She is a truly powerful and formidable fae. I also enjoyed watching Isa and Toryn's relationship bloom. They both have an amazing chemistry that fizzes and pops; the sparks are extremely hot! The danger from Remus and his greed for Isa's power made me shiver. I know the Fae world is a little strange, but his plans were pure evil.
However, although I enjoyed the story, I also found that there are mentions of other characters' and relationships from the Others of Edenton series that surprised me. As I have only read a few of the books from that series, I found the mention of these couples as a little spoiler-ish. Therefore, I have come to the decision that I will not be continuing this series until I have caught up with Others of Edenton first. I mean no disrespect, because I really love this series. I love the Other's world in Seattle and the characters in it and look forward to continuing it soon. But, for now, I will be focusing on the Others of Edenton.
Brandy L. Rivers has written another intriguing paranormal romance series. I loved her fast paced writing style, and the flow was wonderful. Her characters are lifelike and likable. She is now one of my favourite authors.
Due to explicit scenes of a sexual nature, as well as use of bad language, I do not recommend this book to readers under the age of 18. However, I do recommend this book if you love hot erotic paranormal romances full of werewolves, vampires, fae, druids etc. - Lynn Worton

Holy Fae Hotness!
Isa and Toryn have been friends for a long time. She has always wanted more but thought he wasnt interested. Toryn has a secret he has been keeping from the girl he is head over heels in love with but is only supposed to be guarding.
When Isa gets attacked and secrets get revealed, will the truth break them apart or finally put them where they belong...in each others arms? Things are not always what they seem and what is a girl supposed to do when she finds out her whole life has been a lie? Well if your Isadora, you have smoking hot sex with your bestie and you take the bull by the horns and deal!
This is my favorite Brandy Rivers book so ( which is saying alot since I love everything she writes! )
John Lane does an amazing job narrating an already phenomenal story!!! This is a win win for any paranormal fan!

I Love Isa an Toryn!!
What made the experience of listening to Storm Mistress the most enjoyable?
The story is compelling, suspenseful an keeps your attention. John Lane does an amazing job with all of the characters, listening to his voice while the story is being read was very enjoyable
What other book might you compare Storm Mistress to and why?
This goes very well with the Others of Edenton series really well.
Have you listened to any of John Lane’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This performance was well done an hot. The voices he does are amazing. He really brings the characters to life with the tones an accents he does.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes there were a few but I never give any spoilers in my reviews an to explain what moved me would be spoilers....but yes there were parts of this story that touched me.
