Release Date: 09/29/14
Up until recently, Penelope was a witch with no magic. After having it stolen by a demon when she was just a child, Penelope had been forced to rely on sharing others’ powers as she went through the grueling training required to become an elite demon hunter. Now Penelope has more magic than she’s ever known. And when you’re this powerful, who needs salt to keep the demons away?
But power has a dark side.
Carter Prescott just wants to hunt demons and be with Penelope. But suddenly, witches who formerly had no magic are developing terrible, out-of-control powers. Now the world Carter swore to protect isn’t just endangered by malicious demons―it’s threatened by the same witches who once defended it. And Carter is horrified to see his girlfriend starting to change.
Stronger. More powerful. Unrecognizable. It’s just a matter of time before Penelope changes into something far beyond his worst fears...

Witches, demons and too much power = a great book that has you reeling.
This is the second book in the Salt series. It picks up where Salt left off. Penelope, is a witch. No she's not green and ugly nor does she ride a broom. In Salt Pen, had no magic. Ah, but in Storm, she makes up for her time lost with out it. Carter, her boyfriend as well as herself are now Enforcers. An elite group that protects against Demons. Statics begin getting magic, they are untrained and dangerous, because they lack control.
I really enjoyed the tone of this book. It was fast paced and had me wanting to know more. I loved the fact that this book has dual POV's because I got to see into Carters head. I find it to be interesting when I get to also read what the other protagonist in a book is feeling. I saw the development of these characters. In Salt Pen, is okay but in this book you get to see how she has matured. Carter never disappoints, I love a strong male lead.
There are many twists and turns throughout this book, that I was not willing to put it down until I was able to see how the new development ended. I have to say this book grabbed my attention immensely and from the start. I have read very few books with witches but I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a fierce kick ass female protagonist, who comes into her own. A romantic love story or just like to read about witches. That coupled with the fact that the author did a great job in setting up this story and not having any holes that made me wonder who was what, and where was there, makes me a very happy girl. I hate books that leave me unsatisfied with more questions then answers. This book did not and I love that!
