The Storm Operatives are back in another action-packed adventure. This time Will, Andrew, and Gaia are up against something even more dangerous than that found in STORM: THE INFINITY CODE.

Two burglaries have hit the headlines. Why? Because the thing in the video is a strange spectral form that doesn't leave any prints behind and doesn't look human, earning it the name Il Fantastma or The Ghost.

A girl, named Cristina, witnesses The Ghost steal a precious heirloom so she goes after it, only letting STORM know of her plans. After she goes missing, STORM takes the case and goes on the trail of an unknown, deadly, smart criminal, who wants to plunge the world into chaos.

STORM: THE GHOST MACHINE was an adventure filled with twists and turns. There were some surprising twists that kept you on the edge of your seat. The book can be read as a stand-alone, but if you want more background information on the characters, it's better if you read the first book. Even if you haven't read the first book, though, you won't be lost, and you will be sucked into this book. Young sure shows off how much research she did to make sure that the weapons used were believable and didn't seem too "out there."

Fans of the ALEX RIDER or YOUNG BOND series' will definitely love this one. ( )

In this second action spy thriller novel of the Storm series, genius teens Will, Andrew and Gaia head to Venice to investigate a ghost cult and its’ criminal leader” Il Fantastma” in a purportedly haunted island castle. When their contact, the beautiful computer genius Cristina goes missing and they stumble onto a plot to blow up an important meeting of world leaders, it going to take all their brains and cutting edge gadgets to prevent the world from plunging into chaos.
There seem to be quite a few series out now with genius kids saving the world, but I can totally see the appeal. Since I haven’t read the first book in this series, Storm: The Infinity Code, I didn’t have the benefit of complete character introductions, and only know bits and pieces of these three British teens’ backgrounds and motivations. Andrew’s a computer genius and rich kid, Will likes to build gadgets, has recently lost his father and owns a tricked out rat, and Gaia is all about chemistry and explosives and has an alcoholic father. But the setting and plot are spectacular and I loved learning the science behind “ghosts” and other experimental technology. Find out more about this fun series at http://www.stormoperatives.com/ ( )
