Stormfront (Undertow #2)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Not long ago Eila Walker’s choices were limited: death by a bullet to the head, or at the hands of her beloved bodyguard, Raef. Now, five weeks after Raef triggered her power and she nearly leveled a historic mansion, Eila is dealing with the fall-out of her decisions. While she doesn’t remember dying in the arms of the soul thief who loves her, she knows that Raef remembers everything about the night he nearly killed her.

Now on the mend and attempting to keep one step ahead of the FBI, Eila and her team of misfits are desperate for a bit of normal. Eila is trying to navigate high school, while her BFF Ana is cautiously hanging with past-boyfriend and soul thief, Kian. Shape-shifter, MJ, is trying not to piss off his mother, while Raef is coping with his fears that Eila will never be safe.

But just as “normal” seems within their grasp, a powerfully built newcomer arrives. Raef knows the scarred man as a Blacklist Dealer – a soul thief, who peddles the names of humans who deserve to die. Eila, however, knows him as the protective hunter from the woods, who she nicknames Thor. Before long, Raef and Eila realize they’ve met the same killer, and he has one hell of a story to tell the five friends . . . if Raef doesn’t murder him first.

STORMFRONT is the second book in the Bestselling UNDERTOW series.

This was a good sequel to Undertow, and I enjoyed it.

Eila was a good character in this, and she was certainly self-sacrificing. She did make some questionable decisions at times though, and didn’t always seem to be considering the seriousness of the situation.
I have to say that I was quite surprised by the dual narrative in this book as it was different to the first book. Raef came off as a bit over-protective though, and seemed to want to wrap Eila in cotton wool, which got a little annoying after a while. Give the girl some space please!

The storyline in this was good, although the pace was a little slow for me. I thought that the book flowed nicely, but there was some stuff in there that I once again didn’t feel moved the story along, which slowed things down even more.
There was some romance in here, although it didn’t dominate the story this time. Raef started to bug me by treating Eila like she was made of glass though.

The ending to this was action-packed and pretty good! We did get a giant cliff-hanger though!
Overall; good sequel,
7.25 out of 10.
