Storm Clouds:
Hero's Sword Vol 2
by M.E. Sutton

Goodreads blurb:  Eighth-grader Jaycee Hiller is beginning to fear she only imagined her trip to Mallory. But when a rainy afternoon leaves her with hours of playing Hero's Sword, her favorite video game, she finds herself drawn back into the game - literally.

STORM CLOUDS is the exciting second volume of the HERO'S SWORD saga - chronicling Jaycee Hiller's trials in eighth grade, and her exciting adventures in Mallory, the setting of her favorite video game. Jaycee enters the video game realm via a special controller and is caught up in the action of this fantasy realm.

In STORM CLOUDS, a valuable jewel belonging to the neighboring estate of Devin, the Sapphire Star, is missing, stolen at the Fall Consortium. Lady Starla stands accused of the theft. Devin's demands are clear: return the Star or they will take it back by force.

Now it's up to Lyla Stormbringer to find the Star and the thief. before Mallory finds itself at war.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 unicorns - I really liked it!!
** Received ebook for free via Story Cartel for an honest review

The cover is cute, and I think it attracts children to it :) especially how videogame-ish it looks.

Jaycee Hiller is a typical middle grade student who is picked on by some but has a great many friends as well.  It shows kids how to move on and how to persevere.  She is a video game player who likes to literally live inside her game world.

This is another fabulous tale of Lyla Stormbringer and a quest for Mallory.  It is full of adventure, theft, attacks, fights, lying, and so much more.  I think if my son would have read it that he would love it.  Unfortunately, I can’t get him to sit still long enough to read with me lately.

It is very well written and flows along nicely to keep your attention.  I totally recommend this for you to read with your children or for your middle grade students.

See my review of Power Play!!!
