Servants of the Storm by Delilah S. Dawson is the story of a young woman, named Dovey. It has been a year since, Hurricane Josephine came through Savannah, Georgia and destroyed the town and left many dead. Including her best friend, Carly.
A year has gone by with Dovey doped up on medication and always in a daze. The heartbreak of not only losing Carly but in being there when she was taken was just too much for her young heart to take. The medication was there to help in feeling anything…or was it? Could there be another, deeper and darker reason for the medication? The day that Dovey thinks she sees Carly, but when she runs after her, the girl disappears. That is the day Dovey decides to stop taking her medications. She is determined to find her best friend. Why did she disappear and what was she running from? Could it really be Carly?
Servants of the Storm by Delilah S. Dawson is a dark paranormal novel. To her credit, Ms. Dawson does an excellent job in drawing the reader into the story when she describes the raging storm. Unfortunately, that is where it ends after around chapter 2. The further the story goes along it begins to take a twist, as if another author took over the writing because the writing does not seem the same. The main part that I had an issue with is a key part of the story…that was too simplified. Had it been explained as something a little more complex but simple enough to seem realistic than my rating would have been higher.
The overall story was okay, although the ending was what made my rating of three stars drop because it was so predictable.
