Being Chosen was supposed to be a gift.Thoughts on Thunder Road: This book gave me EVERYTHING I wanted in an urban fantasy and then some. Sassy, snarky heroine whose awesome ability comes with a bit of a downside? CHECK! Enigmatic bad-luck priest who comes with his own set of issues? CHECK! Wacky shenanigans with gods and monsters? CHECK!
That’s what Tallulah Corentine’s parents told her when they handed her over to the Rain Chasers on her seventh birthday. It was an honor to be born with a destiny, to be hand selected by the gods before taking her first breath. She should be overjoyed.
Twenty years later, Tallulah is still waiting for the gift. She might have the power of the storm at her fingertips, but she’s spent her whole adult life living under a cloud.
A cross-country trip to find the wayward son of Seth, god of the storm, turns into a fight for her life when she dupes Death out of a valuable treasure. With only a wily con man, a dangerously handsome bad-luck priest, and a lot of lightning to help her, can she deliver the package and keep herself out of an early grave?
Or will Seth be looking for a new Rain Chaser before it’s all over?
If book two was available now, I'd be ALL OVER IT. Seriously. I really, really liked this book and want to see more of Tallulah and the sketchy promises/deals/interactions she gets into. Because that girl owes more than one deity and I can't imagine things will go easily for her down the road.
I'm digging on the old gods vibe. I'm loving how attached to their cars both Tallulah and Cade were. And I get why. I loved how Tallulah could pack away meals. I just... I LIKED THE ENTIRE BOOK, OKAY? It worked for me.
Here's to hoping we get to see Tallulah battling the odds again soon. *whispers* I really liked the book. I totally want more.
