    One thought on “Storm”

    1. I just want the group to go to Nevada instead of taking all of these side trips. The first side trip they took was a trap. Which kind of tells you that the group should have just gone straight to Nevada. I also wish that Olivia would just go to Florida if she wants to or find a safe place and leave the group. I had a major issue with the romance going on in this book; does Tucker even care about Tori or not? Olivia is constantly getting in the way between Tori and Tucker and that annoyed me to n [...]

    2. Part two of a YA trilogyI'd really got hooked from the first book and enjoyed following up with number two. I believe I'll take a hiatus before the next one. I'm a bit lost as to who the retros are. Are they drug addicts that are exuding mind control, or are they (I think) aliens? There is an obvious love, hate relationship with SYLO. I don't want to spoil the book for anyone, so I'll reserve further opinion of this story line. Enjoy book one first of course, then this one next. I'd received thi [...]

    3. It's really late and I just stayed up way past my bedtime because I couldn't put this book down! My heart is pounding and I have no idea how I'm going to be able to calm down enough to sleep. Wow!In Storm, Tucker, Tori, Kent, and Olivia, along with a new character, Jon, who they meet at the beginning, take off across country traveling from city to city to try to see if anyone's left and to find the truth of SYLO.They get much more than they bargained for! And although a few questions are answere [...]

    4. After the Air Force wipes out ¾ of the world’s population, a group of surviving friends are looking for vengeance. The title of my book is Storm and the author is D.J. Machale. I read this book because I read the first book, Sylo, and decided to finish the series.In the book, the characters have just escaped Pemberwick Island, only to find that the cities have been brought to rubble by the mysterious planes with the Air Force logo. The characters are now looking for some revenge against the p [...]

    5. Having escaped from Pemberwick Island in Sylo, Tucker and his friends are trying to figure out who the good guys are. Tucker would have said Sylo, but they have killed his best friend and Tori's father. Along with Kent and Olivia, Tucker takes off to Portland, where the group sees the devastation that the black planes from the Air Force have created. Everyone who was not underground is dead, and whole buildings have been vaporized. In a hospital, they find a doctor and Jon, and hear a weird radi [...]

    6. This review is also posted at readingnookandcranny.While SYLO was nothing special, it at least ended on an interesting premise that allowed Storm to improve upon which MacHale delivered in the first novel. Unfortunately, Storm was even worse than SYLO and by the time I reached page 230, I could stomach it no longer. I hate leaving books unfinished, but I have been battling with Storm for the better part of four days. I kept waiting for Storm to impress, but instead it continued to go downhill.Wh [...]

    7. Storm by D.J. MacHale, the 2nd book in D.J. MacHale's SYLO Series, is about Tucker and his friends’ journey from Maine to Nevada. One the way they will search for survivors, tries to avoid SYLO and “The Retros”, and will face betrayal from one another. I think the author’s main message is that you can’t trust strangers and to choose the path that you truly feel is right. Do not just do what your friends are doing and don’t let anyone persuade you into doing things you do not want to [...]

    8. Storm is book two of the SYLO Chronicles and it picks up moments after book one ends. Tucker, Tori, Olivia and Kent have finally escaped Pemberwick Island only to find the mainland blasted and deserted. In this book, the foursome wander through the remnants of the US, finding survivors and trying to solve the mystery of what happened and who are the real enemies. Along the way, they bicker and fight amongst themselves over what their objectives should be and gradually they piece together the eno [...]

    9. Storm is the rare sequel that is even better than the first novel in the series, and even more rare, it is so exciting and suspenseful, it leaves the reader anxious for book 3. Tucker, and his small gang of escapees from the annihilating battle between the navy and the air force on Pemberwick Island, are on the run. They have no idea what they will find on the mainland, where they are going or what they are going to do, but they are united in their desire for revenge on Sylo, the group they beli [...]

    10. I felt like a lot of things about this book didn't really make sense. There were very few answers given. And it was frustrating that the characters kept getting into difficult situations constantly. At a certain point, it became more like "really? again?" rather than adding suspense to the story. And this book definitely suffered from Middle Volume Syndrome. Too long, not enough substance, and the characters kind of started to really grate on me. Particularly Tori and the main character's infatu [...]

    11. The second book in a trilogy often falls short of the vibrancy of the first, but that is not the case here. I was every bit as riveted. I loved what MacHale did with the issues of trust and loyalty, as it becomes less and less clear who is on which side.

    12. Finally finished this. It fell short of my expectations for a D.J. MacHale book. I wanted more actual plot and less confusing, unnecessary love triangle. Or quadrilateral or whatever was happening here.Review to come.

    13. The story: It's the US Navy (also known as SYLO) against the "Retros": an unseen enemy that's taken over the Air Force, obliterated 3/4 of the people on the planet, and started what seems to be a second Civil War. On their own, with the RETROs' deadly black fighters on their trail, Tucker, Tori, Olivia and Kent start a frantic cross-country journey to find and get their revenge on whoever's behind all this. But first they have to face betrayal from withinJune Cleaver's ratings: Language PG-13; V [...]

    14. D.J. MacHale-StormI have a lot of the same complaints with this book as I did with Sylo. The intensity was missing, some of the phrasing was awkward and wordy, and the characters just aren't likable enough. Again, this story has such a fantastic concept with these great opportunities to capitalize on it and MacHale seems to miss them completely. When you mix in the botched attempt made to write in a love story. it's just not that great. The attempt at romance really bothered me. It just doesn’ [...]

    15. Another solid entry in the series, which is still exciting, funny, and totally unafraid to leave readers in the dark about the full plot. The characters do seem to repeat themselves quite a bit after a while, but the action and suspense constantly drive this book forward, making it a worthwhile read if you're willing to go roughly 800 pages without knowing exactly what the heck is going on in the world at large in the story.

    16. It was alright, but nothing spectacular. I'll be finishing the series, and there weren't any problems with the writing style or anything. There was just a lot of love-triangle stuff and problems caused purely by the group not communicating with each other, which I always hate.

    17. Young adult sci-fi action trilogy; book #2. Plot is interesting, but characters are thin. I really don't care who dies.

    18. I though it was very good although I liked SYLO better. I'm sorry if I annoy anyone, but that's my point of view.

    19. I really liked the first book of the series but the second book sorta disappointed me, I really imagined it to be better because the first book was so great.

    20. This book was really good. It is similar to the first book, in the way that no one knows what is going on. In this book you also learn about Tucker and learn an interesting flaw that he has.

    21. I know they're teenagers and this is a YA book, but do they really have to act like teenagers? I didn't really like any of the characters for most of the book.

    22. Continuation of the SYLO (Nvay) story and the best thing about this book is learning more about what is going on. Tucker is still our reluctant hero and except for one bad decision, he does well with his group of friends.I am torn over the love triangle romance on the run. The hot and cold romance/friendship between Tucker and Tori has lots of potential, but they both make stupid teenage errors. It's a nice diversion from the suspenseful war and survival, but it's awkward, game-playing romance. [...]

    23. Taken by the StormBy: MichelleTucker pierce WAS a normal civilian living on Pemberwick Island. Now, he’s traveling through the U.S. with his friends while running from the haunting, black planes that play the awful music. He learns something very important while on this journey: “Trust no one.” Since the first book was such a cliff hanger, I had to read this book, “STORM” by D.J. MacHale.You would think that this book was like any other apocalyptic journey, but it isn’t. In the first [...]

    24. Having never read the Pendragon books, I didn't know what to expect when I picked up SYLO by D.J. MacHale. Well, scratch that. I know I didn't expect to like it. But I did. How's that for mind-bending? After all the action and EXPLOSIONS and BETRAYALS in SYLO, I was pretty excited to finally get around to reading Storm. I made it three hundred pages in before I gave up. Oh, and there was more to come. Supposedly. Especially considering that pretty much nothing had happened in three hundred pages [...]
