Aware of Erynn's potential, the alien enemy pursues her. Stranded on Arranon, an unfamiliar planet of eternal winter and predatory wildlife, the mysterious living consciousness of this world intervenes, leading Erynn on a mystical journey. She struggles to gain control of her growing powers while in a constant race to elude the invaders, and join the forces preparing to fight a mounting alien occupation.
Although her secret may be her worlds' only hope, being a child of two worlds could cost Erynn her life. Swept up in a chain reaction of events, Erynn's dedication extends far beyond service and duty. She learns the true meaning of sacrifice.
Along with courage and hope, Erynn finds something unexpected on her journey of awareness and growth.


This is a great story that's well written!

This story, Storm of Arranon, surprised me! I wasn't expecting much from it, thinking it was more of a Fantasy than my usual preference in the Sci-Fi genre. That opinion slowly changed as the chapters progressed and I was sucked in by the new and unique story elements and the interplay between the characters. The author did a good job of creating these characters that had depth and dimension to them that made them larger than the words that formed them.

I just don't understand why it hasn't found a bigger listening audience here on Audible. Based on my experience as I listened to Storm of Arranon, I think it's worth your Audible credit to give it a listen.
