Kurzbeschreibung

In Morrison's debut young adult novel, TAKEN BY STORM, Michael faces incredible loss, but he finds Leesie. UNBROKEN CONNECTION is Leesie's story. By the final page, she is broken and battered--physically and spiritually. Morrison vowed to her readers not to leave her that way. CAYMAN SUMMER recounts Michael and Leesie's final journey.

Michael takes Leesie to the Cayman Islands to heal. Time, sunshine, and Michael's devotion free her of physical pain, but grief and guilt haunt her. Michael will do anything to find the old Leesie who prayed, spoke of visions, and kept the rules. For Leesie, that girl is lost forever. Rules? What's the point now? She's ready to break every one.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting twist ... 5. Oktober 2013
Von morgan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Now Leesie's and Michael's lives are somewhat reversed from the first book in the series, which gave their story an interesting twist and I loved that they worked it out.
I loved the Michael character for being just the guy that he was.
Why I only gave three stars is the fact, that the author got a little too much into the mormon stuff in my opinion. Although it was interesting to get an "insider's view" of it, at some point it started to annoy me, cause I felt like being evangelized.
The ending of the story had a little too much icing, too.

5.0 von 5 Sternen BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN SERIES! 26. Juli 2011
Von READING, EATING & DREAMING - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
My review for the entire Taken by Storm trilogy: (Don't worry this review doesn't contain spoilers!)

My parents raised me to avoid public conversations, especially with strangers, on two main topics: politics and religion. (Therefore, I am assuming that blogging about one of them probably wasn't what they had in mind.) However, I am about to go against their advice because today I am going to blog about RELIGION (Well sorta). (I'll save politics for ...well hopefully NEVER!)

Let me start by saying, I LOVED the Taken by Storm trilogy by Angela Morrison. I really wish I could recommend this trilogy for everyone, but I can't because not everyone is going to love it! I think a lot of people will really enjoy this series, but some people won't care for it because of the religious theme throughout the series.

The Taken by Storm series is built around Lessie, a Mormon who struggles with staying true to her religious beliefs. (I am not Mormon. In fact, before I read Taken by Storm my knowledge on the Mormon religion was basically nil.) A large part of the plot in this novel is about Lessie's faith, and a large part of who Lessie is is tied into her religion. However, Morrison shows us how much Lessie's faith is a part of her life without being "preachy". In my opinion, Lessie is a great protagonist. (In fact, she is one of my favs!)

After reading the Taken by Storm series, I developed a strong respect for Mormons who practice their faith because, from what you read in this book, they are very dedicated and have very high standards. Lessie doesn't drink, smoke, experiment with drugs, cuss, go to parties, lie to her parents, etc. In fact, she lives by a set of rules that are, in my opinion, admirable: Do not go into the house alone with a member of the opposite sex. Keep both feet on the floor. Never go into a guy's bedroom. No parking. No necking. No petting. No fornication. No tongue. Etc. She also attends church every Wednesday night, Sunday morning, and wakes up every morning before school for seminary- where her dad teaches her and her brother more about their religion. Morrison doesn't really go into details about what goes on at church or seminary. In fact, she only very briefly mentions that Lessie attends seminary every morning. What I am saying is: Morrison doesn't try to covert you over to the Mormon faith by writing scripture, she simply shows you how dedicated Lessie is to her faith.

Again, I am not Mormon. But I do have my own values and morals that I live by, and I can understand what it's like to have those values tested. In fact, when I was a teenager I lived by pushing my limits. I think no matter what your religion, or even if you don't have one, almost every young adult can relate to this novel (no, maybe not the religious aspect, but having faith in other people, pushing your limits, having your values tested, etc.)

This series is told through Lessie's poems, Michael's dive log (which is basically his journal) and IM chats. I appreciated how Morrison gave us her characters raw, uncensored feelings, especially Michaels. He doesn't immediately love Lessie, and it wouldn't have been realistic if he did. Also, she tells this story within a very realistic time frame, and we get to see Michael and Lessie's relationship develop, falter and progress. I really connected with Lessie and Michael and I think it was mainly because Morrison showed us their raw thoughts and feelings.

The Taken by Storm series made me feel such a wide array of emotions: sad, depressed, happy, ecstatic, frustrated, pissed, embarrassed, livid, hopeful, angry. AGH! At times I wanted to punch Michael in his face. A few pages later, I'd want to give him a hug. I'd want to shake Lessie and a second later I just wanted to cry for.

Angela Morrison - Thank you so much for introducing me to your characters and your beautifully written story.

My recommendation: read this series!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A GREAT SERIES 9. Mai 2012
Von Kym McNabney - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I've been waiting a long time to read CAYMAN SUMMER by ANGELA MORRISON. I read her first book in the series, TAKEN BY STORM, a few years back and couldn't wait for the next. But wait I would. Due to a change in publishers it took longer than expected. Next would be UNBROKEN CONNECTION. I enjoyed that one as well. With stacks of books to read, I finally was able to read CAYMAN SUMMER.

I wouldn't say the TAKEN BY STORM series is packed full of surprises and adventure, yet it will keep you turning the pages. I love the story of Michael and Leesie. Throughout this series they've become lifelike. Michael is so endearing, and Leesie solid and pure. I love the way the story moves for Michael's point-of-view to Leesie's. From chatspot log, to dive log, to most private chapbook. It's well written, and a quick and easy read.

I loved both Michael's and Leesie's journey, how two opposites worlds come together to become one. The TAKEN BY STORM series is one without a predictable outcome. Up until the very end I had no idea how two very different worlds would mesh together. It sadness me that their story is over. I'll miss them.

5.0 von 5 Sternen CAYMAN SUMMER 17. Juli 2012
Von Nana - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The end of a beautiful journey. I remember the first time I read Taken By Storm and what I wished for the characters that I love. I never expected to LOVE them as much as I do. In a way is really sad to leave them but I'm happy that my wish came true. From the beginning of the Taken By Storm series it was about Michael's journey to something he admires but he didn't fully understand. With every chapter of the series, Michael is changing and it was palpable in UB that he was not the same guy we met at the beginning of TBS. In every "hero's journey" in literature there is always a "catalyst" that sets in motion the events of that "SOMETHING" in the series; in this case, when Leesie got spiritually lost. That was the moment when the beginning of the end on the journey began for the hero of this story. For me his change was natural, as a reader I NEVER felt his "character voice" getting lost, on the contrary, every chapter was like I knew him more and more like a friend. Since TBS I expected this outcome and I think the author was clever to let the readers know from the beginning the route of the journey. Something I really believe is that Morrison is not preachy at all. I'm not a member of the Mormon Church. I don't think Leesie's story is about a religious propaganda at all, but it certainly is a spiritual story full of heart, hope and redemption. This story is about the journey of two souls who love each other deeply and how far they will fight and grow for their forever. To summarize I think Morrison leaves her characters and the place they were meant to be and as a reader I truly feel that this series was constructed to end where it ends.

This book, along with the first two in the series, kept me riveted. It was real, which can't be said about most LDS fiction. I loved that the author wasn't afraid of reality.
