Past Storm and Fire
By Christy Nicholas

Past Storm and Fire is yet another exciting and well written story by Christy Nicholas. Just love the cover of this book. I found this book to be a nice quick read, the book also flowed nicely, and the story has a nice pace to it as well. If Christy, you are a fan then this book is going to grab your attention from the start as I did with me. If you are now just finding Christy after reading this book you will want to read more of her wonderful work. You will find Past Storm and Fire has such detail to it you wont want to put the book down, and since this book has a lot of detail it will have you feeling you are on the same journey with Val and the characters of the book. Definitely a five-star read.

Past Storm and Fire is a story by Christy Nicholas and I am sure that it will great like her other stories. I was not disappointed. Nicholas writes in a way that grips you in a way like you are in a spider web and do not even realize it. The way she can start the story with Hurricane Andrew and take you back to historic Iceland is mind blowing. Val is the main female character and she is living with Karl, her husband but is she truly happy. She has visions that take her to Iceland. There is another story that is brought to her in visions. As the story grows so does the love I have for Val and Vigdis. Who is Vigdis and what is his role? You will have to read this story and fall in love yourself.

Past Storm and Fire was a fantastic and exciting 5 star read by Christy Nicholas and I story that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. The level of detail that the author put into the story was just amazing; I was completely captivated by what I was reading. I could tell that the author really had taken the time to research what she writing about and this made a he difference to me as a reader. I have read quite a few books by this author now and I have to say I think that this one is definitely my favourite so far, it was just one of those stories that you find really difficult to put down. I loved the main character Val, she was such a strong person and I really felt like I was living her journey with her.
A fantastic 5 star read that I highly recommend!

Another fantastic book from Nicholas! She is a master storyteller and few can match her ability to create new worlds that leave you breathless with their newness yet they are still relatable. I loved this book from start to finish and found myself transported once again to the world created. Fantastic book.

4 Stars!!!!

This is once again a great read. I have read other books by this author and I was not let down. I found that she has a unique way of bringing her characters to life and drawing the reader in. I really found this book to be refreshing.

I love the way that the main character Val is both a part of the present world and the past. I really got into how the past life she experienced comes to her as a book idea. I love how she is drawn to the past through her work in the future. The way that the book draws the reader in just had me glued to the pages. I really enjoyed how she gets to tie all the characters in her book to the past and gets a new beginning for her in the present. I really liked the chemistry between her and Havaldr. I definitely will be reading more from this author in the future.

5 out of 5 stars

The story Past Storm and Fire by Christy Nicholas is a wonderful book to read. It drew me in from the very beginning and I found myself not wanting to put it down until I had finished the last page. I loved reading about the character of Val. She is a woman who is responsible. Her life is not going the way that she had hoped and is inspired to writing a romance novel set in Iceland. The novel opens up a world which she can escape to. What will happen when the lines between her writing and her real life begin to cross? What does the future hold for Val? Read this book to find out. I also loved reading about the character of Vigdis that Val creates. She is a hard-worker, independent, and strong. I liked that so much detail is given to the story. I felt like I was right there with the characters. This is also a book that is emotional and mine went up and down. I grew to care about Val and Vigdis with each chapter that I read. Don’t miss out on a journey that had me thinking about it even after I had finished the book. Recommended reading.

I found this book enjoyable and hard to put down as it also made me feel as if I was part of the story. It is well written and the author’s attention to detail especially the historical parts are great. Val’s life seems to be falling apart between the damage from the hurricane to her husband’s deceit. Inspired, she finds herself writing a novel based in Iceland. What will happen when her present and past collide? Strong characters that are connectable. I highly recommend this book

Escape can embolden your soul – or destroy it.

Val Masterson created Vigdis in order to escape the drudgery of her life. Instead, Vigdis starts living it.

Val and Karl’s house is destroyed by a hurricane and her husband reveals he can’t have children. These catalysts inspire her to write a historical romance novel set in Iceland, rife with sorcery, sexy Vikings, a big family, and a volcano. Val’s dreams reveal historical details she can’t possibly know, details which prove to be factual, which both frightens and intrigues her.

Her obsession with writing puts a strain on her already troubled marriage, but she’s terrified of being on her own. In her novel, Val becomes Vigdis. She evades two amorous brothers and their sorcerous, drunken father. The brothers fight a duel, forcing her to make a very public choice between them. Their father refuses to bide by her choice and tries to use black magic to enchant her. A volcanic eruption throws their entire world into ash and fire.
The line between past and present grow blurred as Vigdis lives everything Val dreams of – true love, children, and family. An attractive Icelandic professor of history helps Val investigate the history behind her visions, but her husband draws the line – give up her writing or he’ll leave. Val must decide whether to resurrect the shambles of her marriage or take her chance in Iceland to discover if her dreams truly do come from the past.

Can she find vicarious solace and satisfaction in her fictional creation? Or will the escape take over and subsume her?

Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with ‘A’, and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. 

Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she’s a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. 

She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. 

Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad.
