    • WELL THEN. That was quite the wild ride. And honestly- I loved every. Single. Second. All of the characters are so complex, with realistic motivations. I loved how the author used backstory to shape Hitch, and I ADORED Jael. She's smart and brave and spunky but she's still feminine. IS THAT AN AMEN I HEAR. And then, of course, there was Walter. The boy who doesn't talk- not because he can't, but because he doesn't want to. The kid with a dream who has to pretend to be brave. The little guy who n [...]


    • Wowzers, wowzers, wowzers! This was really good. I loved the characters--complicated, realistic Hitch and stubborn, sweet Jael were an awesome flying duo. (I love how she scared the crazy barnstormer out of his wits every time they went up by out-crazy-ing him.) ;) I couldn't help liking Griff in spite of myself, and Walter was sweet. (And his big moment: unexpected!) Those antagonists made me hate them thoroughly. Don't ask me to pick my least favorite. Oh, and the Berringers made me laugh! Goo [...]


    • Quite frankly, one of the best books I've read in a very very long time! Just the right amount of every ingredient that should be in a story, well-developed characters that are diverse and endearing (and a few that are absolutely despicable!), and a plot that never stops, and never disappoints. I can't think of anything to say that will fully convey how excited I am about this one! Go buy your copy asap, and then hop in the front cockpit and buckle up for the flight of your life! Well done, Weil [...]


    • The night I got Storming, I promised myself I would be good and get things done before I opened it. Well, I wasn't good, and the opening scene of a nighttime plane ride and a woman falling out of the sky sucked me right in to the adventure. Storming delivers the same Weiland trademark of vivid characters and masterful plotting that I've come to love and anticipate. It's a different flavor from Dreamlander--historical dieselpunk rather than fantasy--and as I've never read dieselpunk before, it to [...]


    • A roller coaster. That's what this book was. A fascinating, exhilarating, mind-numbing roller coaster. I think I might have had heart failure a couple times in the story. I'm really loving this author's style and way of writing. Her characters are fabulous, her plot was amazing and original, and the themes and lessons taught are so well written. I have a couple more books by her to read and I can't wait to begin!! Highly recommend this book to all those who love action books with good lessons an [...]



    • Ooo-weee. That was one wild ride! I don't read much steampunk/dieselpunk. (In fact, the only books I can recall off the top of my head that would fit either of those genres is the Matt Cruse trilogy by Kenneth Oppel.) Therefore, I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to read Storming, both for its unusual genre, and also the high ratings it garnered from my -friends. Let's start with the characters, shall we? The characters were very well developed. Nearly all of them had complex back stories and [...]


    • I really loved this book! It's got plenty of action and wonderful characters. I love Hitch and Jael and the relationship that they develop. It reminded me of The Fifth Element, which is not a bad thing at all. I just wish we could have explored the airship a little more. The plot was amazing and moved forward pretty steadily. It kept me reading until late in the night, which was probably not the best since I was in the middle of finals. :P I highly recommend this book, especially if you like his [...]



    • KM Weiland's eagerly awaited STORMING is in genre quite unlike both her previous full-length novels - one of them a historical romance set during the Third Crusade and the other a portal fantasy adventure. This time she heads home to her own state of Nebraska in the 1920s and mixes a charming yet irresponsible flying-ace, a mysterious gamine with cutely mangled English, and a giant airship that controls the weather into an eminently entertaining story of biplanes, adventure, and redemption.I hav [...]


    • TAOS:orTHE AWESOMENESS OF STORMINGWith expertly plotted dominos falling from the very first word, K.M. Weiland instantly captures the uniqueness of the world she's about to throw us into at the speed of a biplane charging through the cold wind of the night with a souped up engine and a plucky pilot as bold as black coffee in the outstanding throwback action/adventure novel Storming. Memorably colorful and deeply knit-together characters captain this addictively charming page-turner with dialogue [...]


    • This book was fantastic! I haven't read too many books in this particular genre but Storming has everything from adventure to friendship to science fiction to romance. That's not all though, the stunning way that the scenery is described throughout, along with creative characters like Jael (who reminded me of Amelia Earhart), make it even more exciting. This book takes off into the air right away from page 1 and makes itself stand out way ahead of others of its type.


    • I'm just sitting here in a daze because wowwww this book. The author somehow manages to combine fantastic plot, AMAZING CHARACTERS, poignant themes, great writing style, and high-flying action all in one fell swoop. LIKE SERIOUSLY. It is not often that I find a book with all of these components.For the sake of my scattering thoughts, I'm just going to compile a list of all the brilliancy that is this book. Things I Loved:+ ALL THE CHARACTERS. I know I say this a lotbut characters are basically a [...]


    • So this is the type of fantasy I like. It's believable.wait, is that possible? But really it was. The only things I kind of raised an eyebrow about (fantasy-wise) was the making rain bit and the weird language that was spoken from Storming.I LOVED the time setting!! Barnstorming, flying cirucus', Jenny planes, wing-walking, the prohibition, etc. Hitch and all the characters were great. Jael was so sweet, even though at first I didn't know what to think of her. Gotta love Matthew and J. W. Then t [...]


    • True to form, K.M. Weiland delivers a romping good adventure in Storming. I’m not entirely sure when I decided that I simply had to read this novel. I think it might have been the first time I clapped eyes on the back cover copy and saw the words “aviation” and “biplane.” I’ll admit, I’m a bit of a sucker for anything to do with that. And when you add “Diespelpunk” to throw a bit of fantasyish/sci-fi flavor to the mix, well, what could be better?K.M. Weiland excels at creating [...]


    • DNF. I simply did not like/trust the protagonist enough to finish the book. I did, however, love many of the side characters (WALTER *heart eyes*) and the writing style and overall structure seemed excellently done.


    • Hitch is an out-of-money pilot, putting on air shows, trying to make ends meet and get a place in a famous air-circus. Unfortunately, this quest has brought him back to his home-town, where many people, his closest family among them, are not likely to be happy to see him. If that wasn't enough, strange people are falling out of the sky. They have their own language and culture, and refer to the townspeople as "groundsmen". Where do they come from and what danger do they present?Storming by K.M. [...]


    • This book, okay. Justis book. I approve 10000% There is so much to love (aka, the entire thing), and just ack it's so good. *looks around for the five gajillion star rating*The characters are the most epic creatures ever. I could probably flail over them all for hours. They have such layered personalities, backstories that just give ringing outline and depth to every word they say. And their emotions. I felt every. single. one. It hurt, but I loved it and it's just such an amazing thing. Everyon [...]


    • My first venture into a a dieselpunk novel turned out to be very much worth it. Storming is an action-packed adventure about a biplane pilot with a rocky past at the town he returns to in order to compete in a flying contest. While there, a woman literally falls from the sky--followed by the villain out to kill her and take the necklace she's keeping safe.I really liked the main character, Hitch, who's tough on the outside but sweet on the inside. The town is filled with other colorful character [...]


    • Can't wait to get a paperback copy of Storming! I loved her Portal Fantasy, Dreamlander, so I'm very much looking forward to reading this one. I also need to get on it and read Behold the Dawn and A Man Called Outlaw.


    • I picked up this book partly because of some enthusiastic reviews I'd read, but mostly because I couldn't resist the vintage aviation element. Biplanes and barnstormers in the 1920s? Yes, please! Storming is also a taste of something a little outside my comfort zone, though, since it's not just historical fiction but partly dieselpunk—which, like the related genre steampunk, I understand involves putting imaginary ahead-of-its-time technology into a historical setting. A bit like Jules Verne a [...]


    • In the high-flying, heady world of 1920's aviation, brash pilot Robert "Hitch" Hitchcock's life does a barrel roll when a young woman in an old-fashioned ball gown falls from the clouds smack in front of his biplane. As fearless as she is peculiar, Jael immediately proves she's game for just about anything, including wing-walking in his struggling airshow. In return for her help, she demands a ride back home the sky. Hitch thinks she's nuts—until he steers his plane into the midst of a bizarre [...]


    • In 1920's Nebraska, Hitch Hitchcock makes his living as a barnstorming pilot – until a woman in a fancy ball gown falls out of the night sky in front of his plane and he gets mixed up with her – and with her enemies.Hitch doesn't want anyone depending on him, because he's let too many people down in the past. He's back in his hometown for one week only, to compete for a chance to join a flying circus.His encounter with the mysterious falling woman, Jael, also brings him face to face with fam [...]


    • Es un libro muy entretenido, con protagonistas bien desarrollados, además de creíbles, queribles y humanos. También los diferentes niveles de conflicto están muy bien planteados, con una estructura correctamente elaborada y un excelente uso del foreshadowing, haciendo que elementos y personajes secundarios que aparecen en etapas más tempranas de la historia cobren hacia el final una gran importancia. En este aspecto, nada da la sensación de estar demás en la narrativa de esta novela.Pero [...]


    • With some twists and turns both in the sky and in the plot, the author amps up the excitement while Storming all the way from start to finish.I can not imagine the hours of research the author dedicated to making this book as accurately correct as possible. The 1920 time period as well as the intricate workings of a biplane are perfectly showcased on every page. As a reader, I had an exact feel for the place and the people in the most realistic way possible. Then the author throws in a sci-fi, s [...]


    • Full review here: oliviasinkspots/2This is my first K.M. Weiland read, and I really enjoyed it. The characters were all loveable in their own way, and I really liked Jael's accent, and how it read. The setting and worldbuilding was fun to explore, too, with an airship colony and the inner workings.What was interesting was how every time I thought the story could have ended soon, I'd see the remaining percentage of the ebook and I still had lots more to go. It didn't make me impatient for the end [...]


    • For more reviews, check out thebookmedic/blogI finished it one day ahead of schedule, on January 6th, because I started that night (with 150 more pages to read in two days) and I just could not put it down. Once it was over I found myself wide-eyed and confused in my bed, with a finished book in my hands, at nearly two in the morning. It was that good. So! Here goes.Let me repeat: this book was really, really good. And I wasn't expecting it. That sounds mean, but I read Weiland's book Dreamlande [...]


    • Great story! Engaging characters, mysterious clues, and just enough unexpected "high-tech" stuff to make it a mild dieselpunk story. If you like historical adventure stories, give this one a try.


    • I knew this story was winner upon reading the first page. In it, K.M. Weiland snatched my attention with an unusual incident: something I've never read or envisioned before; a moment that propels the story from its beginning to its action-packed climax.'Storming' is a unique adventure novel that is sure to interest flying buffs, adventure lovers, romance novel fans, character aficionados, and people who simply enjoy a well-written and thoughtful story. In my opinion, it's written on a "PG" level [...]


    • In the 1920s world of daredevil barnstorming, intrepid pilot “Hitch” Hitchcock zooms back into the Nebraska hometown he left nine years ago, hoping simply to win an airshow and gun it back out of Scottsbluff. Instead, he finds the troubles of his past—unforgiving family members and a corrupt sheriff—resurrected in a whole new way. But that’s only the beginning of Hitch’s troubles.On a test flight one night, a woman in an old-fashioned ball gown literally falls from the sky and nearly [...]
