I could not put this down! "On The Gathering Storm" works on many levels. Learning about Hannah's life with her friends and her brother, the reason why she finds herself in trouble, it's all so intricate. There are deep layers of meaning as the interconnected-ness of her modern life overlaps with events from her past and with the people she knows, loves and hates. But then, the pace picks up and the story moves like a freight train, gathering steam towards an ending that I DID NOT SEE COMING. Jason McIntyre has an exciting new voice in fiction and one that I would like to hear again and again. I look forward to his next book!
