Reviewed for +Readers' Favorite 

Eilida is planning to meet up with friends at the local bar, but instead something draws her to the neighbors house. As she slow sneaks over and looks in, what she sees is so horrific and terrifying that she takes off running, it has started storming hard, but she just keeps running until she slide down a hillside landing in a heap against a rock. Sunshine is a receptionist at the Lyden Times Newspaper and she loves her neat and orderly world, only this day nothing is neat and orderly. A young woman was found in the woods with no identification and no memory, strange thing is she looks just like Sunshine only with different color hair. Eye of The Storm: Eilida's Tragedy (Ruthless Storm Trilogy) (Volume 1) follows Sunshine as she turns reporter and tries to discover what sent this woman running and ending up in her town. Elle Klass gives us a wonderful tale of tragedy, survival, repressed memories and recovery.

Eye of The Storm centers around Eilida's fear of storms. She hates them, and as the story progresses we slowly learn the reasoning. Sunshine on the other hand can never remember a day of rain, but as she investigates this case, she is suddenly plagued by storms. Elle Klass creates a compelling story using tragedy, survival, guilt, repressed memories, visual triggers and storms to create a tale that empcompasses so much more than you expect. The tragedy of three families are told in this one story. It is a well written and compelling story that is worth the read. Great for young adults and adults as well.
