Summerfield 1: Summer Storm

Rated 4.75/5 based on 4 reviews
Updated April 2021
Summerfield grew up traveling from one odd place to another while his parents searched for enlightenment.

And yes, he does work for the nation's leading paranormal publication, Wolton World News -- or Woo Woo News as the scoffing locals call it.

That doesn't mean he's prepared for all kinds of weirdness in the last place he expected to find it . . . Omaha, Nebraska. More

Reviews of Summerfield 1: Summer Storm by Lazette Gifford

knitmistress reviewed on July 3, 2020

Delightful! Summerfield, an easy-going, self-effacing reporter for a paranormal newspaper, suddenly finds himself in the middle of a fae clan war. If he can't figure out a way to stop it, all of Omaha may pay the price. Lighter than many urban fantasies, with interesting characters and plenty of action. Lizette Gifford is becoming one of my favorite fantasy writers.

Summer Storm is a well-written urban fantasy with plenty going for it. The characters are delightfully interesting and the plot is engaging with many twists to keep you guessing. Aside from a few stereotyped moments in the treatment of certain communities, this book is a great read. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good adventure. Looking forward to the next one.

This is approximately the fifth novel-length work I've read by this author, and I think it might be her best so far. The conflict is on every page, and the story builds, step-by-step, to a great climax. In the story, the weather is as much a character as the humans/fae are, and I enjoyed reading about the storms as well as following the main storyline. Supernatural meets normal, and the fireworks start! I definitely recommend this author and I'll be buying more of her books.

Summerfield is a reporter for a paranormal publication known by detractors as the "Woo Woo News", but he lives in prosaic Omaha, Nebraska. He doesn't expect to encounter violent storms and incursions of otherworldly beings and the battles and betrayals of their wars. He certainly doesn't plan on taking part in this, but he doesn't have a lot of choice about it. Not everything is quite as it seems on the surface, and not all of the characters are quite what they appear to be.
The book is great fun, a delightful read, well-written by a confident light hand. I loved it!
