Book Review: Receive by Sarah Addison-Fox

After receiving and enjoying ARCs for the first two installments of The Stormers Trilogy I was excited to be selected for an ARC of the final installment, ReceiveThe Stormers Trilogy is a fast-paced dystopian fantasy series by my friend Sarah Addison-Fox. If you’d like to check out my reviews for the first two installments, travel on to the links below before reading this review!

What I Loved

Kade and Hadley

The best part about this book to me was watching Kade and Hadley ADORABLY navigate their newly discovered mutual feelings for each other. After two books of shipping, the way their romance panned out gave me all the feels.

Carl’s Character Arc

Though Carl, Kade’s cousin, is often the comic relief figure in the trilogy, I feel that he matured more in this book and made an endearing turn-around from his former ways. I also loved his banter with Kade. XD

What Was Iffy:

Dystopian Element

Though the characters steal the show in this series, I was confused as to how the dystopian element ends up playing out. It almost felt like once the mystery behind the corrupt government was figured out, that the justice portion played in the background while the narration focused more on the fates of the main characters. I would have loved for the ending to have been more involved in the details about the dystopian element. It comes off as the making of a cliffhanger though, so there may be more in store for this story world.


Rating: 4 out of 5.

Thank you to the author for providing me a free ebook copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. A positive review was not required to receive the ebook.
