Publisher's Summary

Dive into the secret, ancient, powerful world of two New Orleans families, the Deschanels and the Sullivans....
The Storm and the Darkness is Book 1 of the House of Crimson & Clover Series. It can be enjoyed as a standalone story, or as the first introduction to the series. Don't miss the follow-up novella, Beyond Darkness: Shattered.
Ana Deschanel has made a terrible mistake. The only chance of protecting the other people involved is to flee New Orleans, the only home she has ever known, for the quiet solitude of Summer Island.
Summer Island, Maine (population 202) is not the tranquil escape Ana imagined. The locals are distant and cold, especially her neighbor, the reclusive veterinarian Jonathan St. Andrews. Her only lifeline is the kind but odd caretaker Alex Whitman. Showing up at all the right moments, he warns her she is completely unprepared for a Maine winter. As the first winter storm approaches to whispers of an island shutdown - Ana realizes that she may soon be cut off from the rest of the world.
After a surprising encounter with Jonathan's brother, Finn, Ana finds herself braving the storm to return something to him. Unprepared for the Maine storm, she slips and falls onto the jagged rocks along the shore. The St. Andrews brothers find her in the nick of time, but she remains unconscious. As the storm worsens, the St. Andrews brothers learn there are other, more sinister forces at work closer than they ever imagined.
With no help from the outside world, they must find a way to protect themselves from both the storm, and the growing darkness that looms across the island.

I wasn’t really sure what it was I was getting in to when I started this book. It looked good and something I would be interested in listening to.

Ok so Ana Deschanel is other worldly. She isn’t just human she has this extraordinary gift of healing only she can only seem to use it on herself.
She is very close with her cousin Nicolas. She didn’t want to leave him but something happens and she feels the need to get away, so she finder herself on Summer Island. Only way to get to the island is threw boat.

She meets some pretty interesting cast of characters. She is kind of stand offish and I think its mostly because she isn’t easy to open up too.
I also think she sees herself differently than others see her. It’s like she has this allure and men kind of flock to her, to no fault of her own. You don't really know who the love interest is and that's what keeps you listening and wanting more, more, more.

I have to admit to being a little confused not by the writing or the narrator just that there is so much going on I have to go back and re listen so I don’t miss things.
This book takes you on a ride with twists and tuners you wouldn’t see coming definitely glad I had the chance to listen/read this book. On to the next in the series..
I need to know more.

The Storm and the darkness

Any additional comments?

In this book, the characters had twists and turns that you don't see coming. This is the story of Ana.. She is highly intelligent. She does what she can to keep a wall between herself and others except for Nicolas. Her close dependence on her cousin Nicolas and his on her is what she has come to depend on.
