Publishers Weekly
As a child, Andrea Jamieson watches her father die in a hurricane. As a grimly determined young woman running a government storm-fighting project, she falls hard for flyboy Phil Wicks, a retired navy pilot who figures dropping silver iodide on hurricanes beats working for the airlines. The two make a great team at work and at home until Phil flies out into a monster storm that vanishes in the Bermuda Triangle, taking him with it. Those who think of Wilson (The Temptation of Blood) as a horror writer may be surprised by the tender tone of this unabashed descendant of 1940s pulp tales. Tugging heartstrings with the expertise of a master puppeteer, Wilson, a former naval technician, adds plenty of authentic touches but never overwhelms the reader with details. The clean prose, romance and fantasy elements, heart-pounding scenes of man against nature, and topical currency (thankfully not overplayed) will appeal to a wide variety of readers, which makes the overblown YA-style cover all the more unfortunate.

Library Journal
When a devastating hurricane along North Carolina's Outer Banks kills young Andrea Jamieson's father, she devotes her life to finding a way to counterattack nature's most violent storms. She forms her own research corporation and marries a pilot who shares her goal, only to lose him in a monster hurricane that threatens the North Carolina coast before disappearing without a trace in the Bermuda Triangle. Thirty years later, the storm returns, as if waiting for its chance to strike down its implacable enemy. Wilson (The Temptation of Blood) crafts a paranormal thriller that develops with cinematic intensity to its gripping conclusion. A good selection for sf thriller and Bermuda Triangle fans.

This was a great book. It kept me turning pages to see what was going to happen next. At first I did not think hurricanes would be that interesting but this author created a fantastic story.
