I'm split on whether or not this book is better than it's predecessor. One the one hand, I (still) liked Ruby and that her approach to her situation is basically "everything sucks and I might as well use this as an opportunity to access all the makeup and clothes I never could before." That feels realistic to me. Is it practical that she puts on makeup to make herself feel better? No, but that's probably what I would do too. And the introduction of the moral ambiguity of Xar and the fact that Ruby's father is... kind of a flake which is putting it nicely - he hardly even seems to notice she's there or care what she's gone through, he's so wrapped up in Tilly, and he really fails at parenting Dan when he needs it most in interesting and not something normally done in YA.

But not everything was an improvement. At first, it was nice to have Saskia show up and be a part of the story, but when she's taken to the hospital and then everyone accepts that she's dead without question is too rushed. I want to know what happened to her! She was a resourceful character. And while there was the beginning of a relationship between Ruby and Darius in the first book, it seemed really rushed here. And Princess's story line was extremely vague. In fact, I'm not really sure why she was necessary to either plot.

Overall, a fun fast read. ( )

The plot was all over the place and Ruby didn't seem to grow much during this book unfortunately. I still don't understand why the scientists and army acted as they did, it seemed entirely ridiculous. ( )

Ruby is a very likeable character which is good because I still get a bit frustrated that she still seems a bit obsessed with clothes and make up and I have to remind myself that she is a 15 year old girl. Besides that I really enjoyed the 2nd book in this series, The premise that this apocalypse was started by a microscopic being which came from a blown up asteroid is original and leaves a lot of room for story development. I found myself tearing through this book too quickly and was rather disappointed that I had come to the end so soon. I hope this series continues ( )

This was definitely not as engaging as the first book and the story just seemed to drag on forever without much really happening and the ending felt rushed leaving me with several unanswered questions. H2O was original and captivating but this follow up is a dud. ( )

If you haven't read H20 yet, skip this review as it contains some spoilers. The Storm is the sequel of H20 and it picks up three months after Ruby saw a note from her father telling her to stay put and wait for him. And so Ruby waited, and the longer she waits the more she transforms from a self-engrossed girl to a girl toughened by experience. She no longer cares that much about appearances and starts going to the library to educate herself with practical skills that will help her survive. In between moments of sanity, she struggles with bouts of hysteria and depression which eventually lands her in an accident.

Then one day she hears the church bells ringing. Curious, she follows the sound and finds someone she's somewhat reluctant to see. Together they travel in search of Ruby's dad, but tragedy strikes along the way and they land at the base to get help. There Ruby is reunited with someone who's been on her mind, but her initial joy turns to panic as she discovers what's really happening in the base. Soon she finds herself in the middle of a medical breakthrough and she must decide whether to trust the doctors/scientists or trust her instinct. Her decision takes her on a perilous journey where she will meet the good, the bad and the absolutely crazy. In the end she discovers that she is stronger than she thinks, and that perhaps there is still hope in this post-apocalyptic world.

I liked Ruby better in this book than in the first one. Yes, there are still times she got on my nerves whenever she makes illogical decisions, but she is less self-centered. I also liked that last scene when she was face to face with Xar, it was tense but amusing at the same time. I was able to deduce some of the plot surprises before it was revealed, but I didn't connect it to the fountain - that was a good one. The questions I had after reading the first book were all answered in this one. I only wish Ruby used her leverage more intelligently, that would have turned her into a stronger protagonist. I also think she has already lost so many people she loves that it's cruel that she had to lose another one, especially after all the trouble she went through to find them.

Overall, this book is okay, it could have been better though as Ruby had the potential to be a Katniss-que heroine. Honestly, I was more emotionally invested in finding out what happened to Whitby - I love him! I enjoyed the author's writing and look forward to reading her other books. ( )
