    1. Of all the sub-genres in the Thriller category, Psychological thrillers are probably the hardest to write (that’s why I don’t). With Claire Smith’s ‘A Rising Storm’ we have a prime example of how it should be done.This is not your staid thriller fare either. The author tackles an emotionally charged issue, adult-age bullying and how it affects its victims, head-on and some may find it uncomfortable. She is also willing to take risks in the way she structures her writing. The book opens [...]

    2. Absolutely brilliant. The story initially begins with the effects of bullying, and goes someway to explain the main characters inability to trust, due to the horrific effects bullying can have. The plot quickly moves on from here into a thriller with twists, and turns, that completely captivated me. The further in i got, the more difficult it became to put the book down. The pace accelerates right to the end. The characters are superb, and the writing is exceptional so the book almost reads itse [...]

    3. This psychological thriller was so much more than just a thrilling suspenseful ride. It also takes a look at bullying, at its worse. Abigail the protagonist, is at times struggling to survive, yet her vulnerability, facing a narcissistic bully, mixed with strength, in the face of untenable odds, is a testament to good writing and well thought out plots.This is an emotional journey, disturbing, but full of surprises and twists, which left me wondering why I didn’t see them coming.It is not very [...]

    4. This is a truly engrossing story. One must find out how the girl who is trying hard to be a strong woman, is going to survive. The trials she goes through at the hands of a self absorbed bully are vile indeed. Slowly, seeming one step forward and one and a half back, she begins to grow into the woman she was meant to be. As this is book one, I am looking forward to seeing how one particularly interesting thread is going to play out.
