Overview

What if you found out you were the granddaughter of the first woman, no not Eve, but Lilith? After 150 years Dika Edens, the oldest of 4 girls each destined to live forever finds out that very thing. She is not sure if it is a curse or a gift from the Gods. All she knows is the man that has informed her of this has way too much guilt on his shoulders regarding her and her... past. Chrome is her Guardian but that does not mean he can protect her from everything. He should be the first one to know that - since he is the one telling her that she must save the world.

My name is Dika, I am an American born Hungarian, Polish, Spanish Gypsy with a little bit of something special, born right here in the green state of Oregon, home of the Beavers. That history would be changed in a matter of a few words spoken from the man that has been haunting my dreams. My sisters and I need to save the world and if we don't the Universe will cease to exist as we know it.

My name is Chrome Jai, Dragon Guardian to Dika Edens, created to protect her from the evils of the first human woman mother of mankind. I will protect her as she fights to save the humans, but her first assignment will be to make it through the first 48 hours and find her Aunt and her Grandmother.
We will go together to hell and back just to fix the mess of the Gods and man.

Editorial Reviews

Smashwords - Jeannie Christo
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....
Goodreads - Ashley Vaughn
This author is currently one of my new favorites! Her stories are fast paced and well written. I had to force myself to put my kindle down in order to sleep!

    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.

    I read the book in 2 days, I could not put it down. It has all

    I read the book in 2 days, I could not put it down. It has all the points I think a great book needs, a little smug, love, hate, action, and adventure. I could really believe that this is the way everything really played out in the Bible.
    Dika is the best, she stays strong even when life throws her lemons. And she always has her family
    there to keep her strong. I cannot wait for the next book to come out.

    This is a fantastic paranormal romance! I loved it! Dika Edens

    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
