“The story has plenty of twists and action-packed scenes, and it overflows with secrets and lies."- Kirkus Reviews
In this diabolically gripping thriller, there’s more than meets the eye.
His terrifying past identity is no longer confined to his dreams.
What would seem like a gift to most is a dangerous curse for Evan Storm. After encountering his nightmare doppelganger in waking life, he must accept there’s no escaping from the cruel man he was in a previous lifetime. There’s no therapy that can fix his soul. No medicine. Nothing.
Her fate is repeating itself.
Then Evan meets his new neighbor, a woman with an uncanny resemblance to his wife in their past lives. Shadow Hex is trying to escape her dangerous ex-fiancé, who works for the Secret Eye Agency—a shadowy organization with sinister motives. He’ll always be after her. As long as she’s alive, she’ll always be looking over her shoulder. There’s no escape besides death.
Together they can break free from this cycle.
When Shadow and Evan meet, everything begins to make sense. He resolves to protect her in order to make up for his wrongdoings in their previous lifetime. But when he and Shadow grow close, the Secret Eye Agency intervenes, throwing their precarious relationship into turmoil.
Their one chance at redemption is in peril.
Saving Shadow might cost Evan this life. And can he really protect her from her fate when he’s already a part of it?

“There was a moment of silence and neither of them felt like they needed to say something. Shadow gazed off into the backyard, wondering how Evan existed all this time without her knowledge.” Storm is not your typical psychological thriller. It may not even be described as a dystopian novel. It takes place in a world that resembles ours very, very, closely; at the same time, there are some people born with supernatural powers, like Venice, Storm’s psychic grandmother, with the uncanny ability to predict the future. There’s also an underground agency that operates and monitor people’s moves without their knowledge. This novel opens up on a frightening note: Evan Storm, the main character, has been experiencing some vivid nightmares for months; nightmares where he always gets some snippets of his past self. In a past life. An Evan that hurt his wife on a daily basis. Present Evan doesn’t know what these nightmares might mean or imply, but he’s so horrified by his past self, he goes looking for some answers. At the same time, a new neighbour moves in and when Evan goes knocking on her door, he looks at the woman, and sees the doppelgänger of his past wife. The woman he hurt in those nightmares... I was hooked. After that point, I knew I had to move faster through the story and get to the bottom of this. And when it was finally revealed that... I was flabbergasted. I loved, loved, loved, Venice’s character and most of my favorite lines, belong to her. A therapist with the ability to see the future and the burden of knowing what her intromissions might entail. When she decided not to alert her granddaughter about her husband’s impeding accident, I felt for her. A power like that, a burden like that, could drive anyone out of his mind. And yet, Venice was able to survive such a knowledge with her mind still intact… I really enjoyed this book. And given the cliffhanger, the only question I’m left with is: where’s the second instalment? Thank you Mrs. Kaur Sidhu for gifting me this novel in exchange for an honest review. Thoughts and opinions are my own.
I recieved a copy of Storm for an honest review! Do you believe in past lifes? Doppelgangers? Curses? Karma for wrong doing in a previous life? From the very first chapter I was completely drawn in. I was hooked. Gurpreet Kaur Sidhu did such an exceptional job of switching from past to present, visions to reality. Storm is a perfect book of mysteries, thrillers, secrets, and a lot of suspense. It had you questioning the characters intent, their motives, and wondering how this will all end. Thank you Gurpreet Kaur Sidhu for giving me the honor of reading this book! BRAVO!
This book is so refreshing and different it is awesome, it started slow but after awhile it drags you in and you have to read the rest. The characters are great and more understood during the book, lots of twists and plots! Evan has lots of nightmares He doesn't get, no one seem to be able to help him, will he ever find out what happens to him?? His sister Denise has her own struggles with a husband who had a accident and doesn't remember the past especially their son. I personally loved the grandmother! And then their is Evan's new neighbor. It is all about second chances would you take it ?? Even when you have to go through hell and back?? I am curious where the author takes us in the next book!
Welcome to Lake View. An average suburb of average people where Evan Storm lives. Evan has been having horrible nightmares. Vivid, terrifying nightmares where he does things that are completely out of character for him. More terrifying is waking from that nightmare to find the object of the nightmare standing behind you. Derek is the object of that nightmare, but why is he haunting Evan? And why do they look so much alike? Evan’s peaceful life as a school teacher is turned upside down by these nighttime visits. Derek’s mom, Venice, just happens to be a psychic who possibly could help with explaining these nightmares, but Venice has her own agenda to keep. Add in Shadow, a new neighbor with nightmares of her own. Storm is Book One of a new series by debut author Sidhu. The combination of paranormal and thriller and secrets sounded so compelling I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one. In many ways I was rewarded with reading adventure, in other ways, not so much. I have mixed feelings about this book. The story was interesting and kept me engaged. At times, I struggled with the wording or dialogue. The names of some of the characters and locations seemed almost comic book like. Overall, the paranormal side of things kept this book interesting enough. I wanted to know what was going to happen to Derek and Samantha. What secrets was Venice hiding? What had happened to Shadow, and why was she so familiar to Evan? The premise of the book was fabulous. I loved the ideas, it was the execution of these ideas that struggled. Most likely I would want to follow the characters of this book through the series to see where they land. Without spoiling, this book wrapped things up a bit too neatly at the end. There are few questions that remain, nothing as sinister as how the book started. I am curious as to where Ms. Sidhu is heading with the next book. As with some other books series and first-time authors, time does improve both the story and writing. I hope that is the case with the next book in this series.
