The author sent me a copy (epub format) in exchange for an honest review (member of Rosie’s Book Review Team).


My rating:  4  of  5  stars

(by Goodreads)

A disturbance at her neighbor’s house piques Eilida’s curiosity. What she discovers is so shocking it sends her running through the mountainous woods during a thunderstorm. She slips on the wet ground, plummets down Mount Wilde, and slams into a large boulder beside River Freedom. Eilida is transported to Lyden, where Sunshine, a receptionist at the local paper becomes engrossed in her story. The further Sunshine delves into Eilida’s life the more entangled their lives become. Paranormal events, frightening dreams, and terror filled memories draw the women together into an unthinkable web of horror.


Genre(s):  Paranormal, Suspense

Series:  Ruthless Storm Trilogy, #1

Length:  274

Release Date:  2014-10-24



“A young woman was found over the weekend, her injuries so bad they rushed her to the hospital here. Lyden has had an outpouring of concern for her. I’ve been glued to the telephone. I am starving, ” drawing out the words I am to emphasize she wanted to eat first, talk later.


My Opinion

This book is written from three points of view: Eilida, Sunshine and occasionally the narrator. As a reader, I automatically tried to solve this strange case. I will not tell you more about the story than shown in the Goodreads plot description. This would spoil the fun of reading this book yourself.

With Eye of the Storm: Eilida’s Tragedy, Elle Klass has created a thrilling paranormal suspense story with a touch of horror. With Eilida and Sunshine, Eye of the Storm: Eilida’s Tragedy comprises believable characters, having to deal with partially unsettling situations and interesting interactions to solve a set of crimes. It took me a while to buy into the story, then I had a great time reading – this is a very intriguing read. I was really drawn into the story when reading the chapter ‘Opportunity’, thrilled to solve the mystery ‘together with Sunshine’. This is for you if you like a thrilling paranormal suspense with a slight horror streak.

A thrilling book and/or series to read again. I’m eagerly waiting to read the other volumes of the trilogy.
