This is a fantastic paranormal romance! I loved it!
Dika Edens is a wonderful character. She is the eldest of four sisters. She is 150 years old, but doesn't look a day over 30! Her longevity is thanks to her Grandmother, Lilith, the first woman created by God. She has, unknown to her, a protector in the form of Chrome Jai, a Dragon Guardian.
Chrome Jai is a sexy, but extremely protective, guardian. He was created as soon as Dika was born. He is a Thunder Dragon Guardian; he turns into a dragon, but he also has the ability to become a man or a type of mist. I wouldn't mind him being my guardian! ;)
This book is an intriguing take on the lives of Lilith, Adam and Eve, and their offspring from the Bible, although there is very little in the way of religion in this tale. The story is told through Dika and Chrome's point of view, and gives the reader an insight into their thoughts and actions. I loved the interaction between the characters, especially the sisters as, just like my relationship with my sisters, they have their moments. Unfortunately, when they have disagreements, or emotions run high, they tend to affect the world around them. Dika has an affinity to electricity and can control weather; I certainly wouldn't want to get on her bad side! The mutual attraction between Dika and Chrome is just as explosive! It basically makes the pages smoulder! There is plenty of other action too, which makes this book an exciting read! The danger faced by the sisters and their guardians has only just begun. I am now looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
J.M. Schroder has written an incredibly fast paced and sexy paranormal romance - I loved every moment of it! Because of the sensual scenes in this book, I do not recommend it for younger readers. However, if you love a steamy paranormal romance, then this is for you! - Lynn Worton

Thunderstorm is a fresh, imaginative, and convincing look at some of the oldest stories in human history. The way JM Schroder connects biblical characters with deities of other ancient cultures is presented in a way that makes you stop and wonder. The passion of her characters is undeniable and captivating both physically and spiritually. It leaves you feeling the strength and possibilities of love and courage, and begging for more!
Dika and Chrome are indeed a match made in heaven and see the beauty that may not be visible to everyone, but can't be hidden from each other. The opening line definitely hooked me! I can't wait to read what happens next. I'm glad that there are more books of the Daughters on the way.
JM Schroder draws you into the minds of Dika Edens, the oldest of four daughters, and her dragon guardian, Chrome Jai. By alternating points of view from chapter to chapter, we are taken on a journey of love and enlightenment that can only be gifts from the Gods. Dika knows she and her sisters are special, but she has no idea how special and vital they are to humanity... to all of existence. While Chrome knows more than Dika, he has limitations placed on him by Ba'al and the other gods. Learning how their powers are controlled and how well they work together, Dika and her sisters are violently thrust into the reality that secretly surrounds us all. With one thing after another trying to stop them, the question that you must struggle with is: Will they have the strength they need in time? Thunderstorm provides some amazing answers, but leaves you begging the gods for more

Dika is a Daughter of Eden and along with her much loved sisters she possesses magical powers that must be harness in order to fulfil her destiny.
Chrome is her guardian in the form of a shape shifting Dragon created to protect Dika for the entirety of her immortal existence.
Once the gods finally allow Chrome to reveal himself to Dika the immediate attraction threaten to consume them both and distract them from what is most important.
All they hold dear is threatened when Eve the spiteful and selfish bride of Lucifer seeks unprovoked vengeance against Lilith and the Daughters of Eden with the single minded intent to eradicate their entire bloodline. Will the daughters and their warrior's band together in time to stop the pending apocalypse or will the secrets of their past be enough to destroy them?
The steamy encounters between Chrome & Dika leave u breathless and wanting more but more than that I adore the bonded mate concept in this story it gives such a definitive take on love.
All though I felt the story seemed at times repetitive in its descriptive content & lacked fluidity it more than made up for it with a fantastic plot, J.M. Schroder brings her magnificently imaginative characters to life in a wonderful world of fantasy.

From the first paragraph I was completely engrossed in this book. I love the way that Ms. Schroder blends biblical elements in with paranormal. I love how Dika grew into herself throughout the whole book no matter what was thrown at her. Oh and Chrome (lucky Dika!) every woman should have her own Dragon who looks and feels for their woman like he does Dika! In short this book is everything I look for in a book dark, sensuous, action packed, and with kick ass heroines who know how to take care of business.
I totally can't wait to read and find out more about these sisters, their Dragons, and the war they are fighting.

Completely sucked into this book....and that is no pun towards the vampires involved. Everyone, religious or not, has heard the major stories of the Bible....Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, and Samson and Delilah. This book is an incredible spin off those stories.
Main characters Dika and Chrome are amazing. As Dika who views herself as plain an ordinary in comparison to her sisters is adored by her dragon Chrome. Any woman would consider herself blessed and lucky to be described as Chrome describes Dika.
This book is action packed and now I am thoroughly disappointed that I have to wait for the next installments.
