Storming lives up to the blurb that inspired me, “Cocky, funny, and full of heart, Storming is a jaunty historical/dieselpunk mash-up that combines rip-roaring adventure and small-town charm with the thrill of futuristic possibilities.”

I was hooked from the opening, when a young woman falls from the clouds in front of Hitch Hitchcock’s biplane. Hitch is a pilot protagonist who has run away from his past, but now has to face it head-on as he tries to “save his Nebraska hometown from storm-wielding sky pirates.”

The young woman, Jael is mysterious and spunky, and tied to the pirates, which is craftily revealed. I wanted Hitch and Jael to fall for each other, but nothing is ever so easy, especially in one of K.M Weiland’s novels. I gave up trying to suss out what was going to happen next – after getting caught out in her first novel, “Behold the Dawn” [another recommended read]. She knows exactly how to make the twists pay off.

All the characters are memorable, including the supporting cast – I could really visualise the Berringer brothers. The young boy Walter adds a strong thread that kept me on the edge of my Kindle, as his story weaves throughout, and he adds to the exhilarating climax.

Having read a few ‘steampunk’ novels, I relished the sky pirates and their strange weather-controlling airship, and their unusual language. At first, Jael speaks only this language and a smattering of English words, adding to the mystery of her and her people. I sensed a Slavic origin, and have my own theories, but read the novel and form your own.

K.M Weiland has written yet another novel that demonstrates that she ‘practises what she preaches’.

I only read this book because I was interested in reading "The Complete Outline Transcript for Storming"... (I'm fascinated by the craft of story writing) and thought it best to read the novel first.

Just 20 pages in and I was hooked. I have never before read any Steampunk/Dieselpunk fantasy adventures, so this was virgin territory. If anyone wants to dip their toes in this genre, then this is an excellent book to start with. Though I am a little concerned that other authors I might read in this genre will have a great deal to live up to!

I don't want to post any spoilers, but if you enjoy adventure, romance, conflict, tension and a fantasy story that has a large ingredient of believability - then this is a book for you. In particular, I love the dialogue in Storming. Weiland certainly crafts some interesting and often amusing characters who come to life even more with the well crafted dialogue.

Go on, give it a go, but don't read any précis or summary as this is a story that needs to be read totally cold.

I laughed. I cried. I got emotionally involved in these wonderfully vivid characters. I found myself turning pages in eager anticipation of more enthralling twists and turns and some breathtaking storycraft. The evocation of the author's home territory of Nebraska is lovingly achieved and the 1920s barnstorming setting had me on the edge of my seat. I loved the dieselpunk elements interwoven skilfully into the structure through the enigmatic Jael and her background.
A thoroughly satisfying read with breakneck action sequences, gentle humour and heartwarming romance. I often find steampunk fiction & its numerous variants quite arid and flat, but K.M. Weiland brings colour, texture and depth to the genre.

I had waited eagerly to receive my copy of STORMING. And as to be expected with K.M. Weilands books, it was beautifully written, wonderfully descriptive and with great characterization.
Nevertheless, I struggled to get into it, and I admit I found it overly long.

I loved her fantasy DREAMLANDER, and I expected to feel the same about STORMING. But sadly I didn't find it as riveting as I had hoped.
I confess to being an unashamed fantasy lover, so this is only my opinion.
I have no doubt STORMING will garner many fans.

If any book 'thrums' this one does. Redolent of the wide open spaces of Nebraska you are transported to an archaic world and simpler lifestyle where heroism is the watchword. Intriguing and mysterious it hops along at fast pace, takes you up into the open air and washes you down with lace up boots, kerchiefs and cornbread. This is the first K. M. Weiland novel I have read but 'fersure' it will not be the last. In essence: great, buy it, read it, love it.

Wow! I was completely engrossed in the story line all the way through. Not my usual genre, but I'm pleased I gave it a chance.
