After the weather witches twins got introduced at the end of book 5 I was excited to get their stories. Nymph’s Storm features Eva who can influence the weather and Ford a dryad who works with plants. The two but heads from the first moment they meet, but once they get caught outside in a storm and have to shelter together they slowly warm up to each other.
I struggled a bit with this book at first. Eva and Ford start off not liking each other and I usually don’t really like enemies to lovers type stories. Not that they really are enemies here, but I didn’t like how they got off on the wrong foot. This goes on for quite a bit before the storm happens and things change. I liked the second part a lot more when they grow closer. I really liked seeing the beginning of their romance and I really liked them together. I was sad they only grow closer so late in the book as I wanted to see more of them together. I liked how direct Ford was and how Eva came to appreciate his directness.
This book is a bit loser connected with the previous books, so there were less recurring characters form previous books, but I like how there are still ties. Eva and her twin Max know the parents of two of the previous main character as they traveled together. And Ford knows the male main character from book 1 as they work together. Eva and Max are pretty new to Purple Oasis so it takes some time for them to settle, I liked seeing the Oasis through their eyes and how they experienced it. We get to know Max a bit too and see Eva and Max interact. I look forward to his story.
I liked learning more about the weather witches and was a bit confused at first how it worked with them being twins and their powers being dependent on the other. Luckily that gets explained in the book and how neither of them can work without the other. I wish there had been more about the dryad as we don’t see as much of Ford’s powers, but it seemed cool and I liked how much he cared about his plants.
To summarize: This is the sixth book in this series already. Eva just arrived in Purple Oasis with her twin Max and has to get used to this new place. Eva and Ford get off on the wrong foot when they meet and this continues for quite a bit, I wasn’t a fan of this set up. Once they get caught in the storm this book really improved for me as I liked seeing them grow closer and warm up to one another. It was fun reading about weather witches and their powers as well as seeing a bit of Ford being a dryad. I liked reading about Eva and Ford together, I had just wished there were more scenes of them as they grow closer. This is a great series so far, the positive hopeful tone is awesome and I like the mix of romance, paranormal and post-apocalyptic.
