Overview

Sabine Parsons, ex-codebreaker, once code-named Oracle, put herself out into the Cold thirteen years ago when her controller, Edward Quintaine died in action. She's lived a quiet life over those years and done her best to forget her past. So it didn't seem like such a bad idea to go on vacation with her best friend in the entire world, Ari Doran. Who just happens to be an agent for Israel's Mossad.

But back in the day, Sabine had the ability to foresee the future in prophetic Dreams. She could break code that had less to do with algorithmic equations and more to do with an ability to see the code complete. Both abilities have slept these long, long years. The minute she gets on the plane, her Dreams return in terrible force as full blown Nightmares foretelling the end of the World. The two friends find themselves dropped into the middle of a clandestine war between the intelligence agencies of the world and an organization that would destroy all civilization through the raising of the elder gods of destruction.

And not everyone is as dead as Sabine thought they were.

    Horrifying

    HARK.........FOR ALL YOU READERS OF ANGELA HUNT LISTEN UP! This book is by Angela N. Hunt, not the Christian author that we all love. Barnes and Noble should make that very clear. I thought I had found my new favorite author when I read Angela Hunt's THE JUSTICE and LET DARKNESS COME. This book STRANGE WEATHER was so full of crude language, occult witchcraft stuff that I wonder at myself for finishing it. I still feel ashamed that I kept reading.

    Excellent spy-thriller-fantasy

    Please note, if you're looking for Christian fiction by Angela Ellwell Hunt, this is not what you're after - this is a FANTASY SPY THRILLER by Angela N. Hunt.

    Negative reviews based on purchasing a book without actually reading the author's name or the book description are terribly unhelpful. So perhaps it would assist readers to get the perspective of someone who actually meant to read the book.

    I'd actually call this 3 1/2 stars, but I'm rounding up to 4 because my reasons for dinging the book are more stylistic than anything, and there's plenty of people who would call it a 4 on those grounds!

    This was a strong debut novel from an author whom I hope will continue to refine her style and voice and just get better and more powerful. The book had a lot of promise, most of which it fulfilled, and which left me eager to see what the author will do with future novels in the series - because it's most definitely a series opener.

    ...unfortunately, that's one of the things that I disliked about the book. After a few hundred pages of increasing tension, then a very very fast-paced climax and denouement, there's no sense of conclusion. It's a setup for the next book. Don't get me wrong, I'm really eager to find out what happens to Sabine, Ari, and the rest...but I would've liked a little more lingering tension and epic battle after all the tense situations leading up to the climax, rather than a quick fix and setup for the next book. I want more! The author is very good at setting up a horrific fight scene, or appalling villain's lair, or any number of other situations - I want to get to explore these situations a little more, instead of breezing to the next in order to get to the end...

    The characters, particularly Sabine and Ari, certainly feel like fully realized people; they fight and get annoyed and tired and confused, and they laugh and piss each other off and take care of each other. It's a great example of friendship between women in fantasy, which is something we don't see enough of. Both women are powerful and confident, but also worried and confused and bumbling through life as best they can - you really identify with them, empathize with them, and root for them.

    The plot itself is a breath of fresh air - it's a standard spy thriller about a shadowy group trying to take over the world...but it's done with a welcome, unexpected flair by focusing on magic (magick) and belief as a way to influence world events. The idea of an intelligence analyst relying on magical perception and prophetic dreams (or Dreams, as the novel styles it) is really intriguing, and something I'd love to see covered more in future books - I'd love to read about how Sabine got into intelligence work in the first place, and how magic has a place in something as seemingly mundane as codebreaking.

    Really, I just want MORE in this world. That's the book's major shortcoming - not its plot, which is tight and swift and engaging; not its characters, which are human and intriguing and in some cases, really really freaking creepy; not its premise, which is delightful (love the magic-spy angle, have I mentioned that?) - no, the problem is I want MORE of all of these things.

    If you like spy thrillers, magic, and strong female characters - and you love a good, ripping post-Cold War thriller about saving the world - you owe it to yourself to give Strange Weather a try, and to stick around to see what the author does next. I have a feeling it'll be

    Wonderful Sci-Fi Fantasy

    For those who didn't bother to pay close enough attention to who wrote this book, I say shame on you for writing bad reviews of a book you had no business reviewing. If you weren't careful enough to notice the author's full name and thought you were getting a novel written by a Christian author, you're basing your review solely on your religious beliefs and way of life rather than the artistic and imaginative merits of the book itself. Were your reviews intended as an attack on the author? It seemed that way to me. The book was simply not what you were expecting. Period! I thought it was well written. The characters were interesting. And foul language is part of life. Sometimes art imitates life. Deal with it.

    Pay Attention Before You Download!

    Would have been helpful to have read reviews before I bought this book! I was so excited to find a new Angela Hunt book that I quickly downloaded it without noticing the middle initial in the author's name. Would return it, but can't return Nookbooks. Will know to pay better attention next time! I don't choose to read books with foul language in them. Was turned off by the first sentence!

    Not by Angela Hunt, the novelist

    Readers should know that this is Angela N. Hunt, who publishes her own books, not the novelist Angela Hunt or Angela E. Hunt. Two completely different authors.
