    This was my first foray into the Black Carbon series, and I feel like I didn’t miss out too much from the first two, other than the story of the two main characters, Joule and Cage. We get bits and pieces, but nothing that explains some of their actions and feelings. I really enjoyed this book. As someone who is terrified of tornadoes, and has traveled to tornado alley in the summer to visit my grandparents, needless to say, they fascinate me.

We get bits and pieces, but nothing that explains some of their actions and feelings. I really enjoyed this book. As someone who is terrified of tornadoes, and has traveled to tornado alley in the summer to visit my grandparents, needless to say, they fascinate me. Mainly because we know what conditions can make them form, but we can’t actually predict them with certainty. Cage and Joule have gotten jobs working for HelioSystems working on a solar array they ae putting in in Alabama. This specific area has been chosen due to the fact that is a low tornado area. Hello foreshadowing. As the employees work to make the array twister-proof, they find themselves in the middle of strange weather that sends multiple tornadoes after them. Cage and Joule are separated when a twister plucks his sister from the ditch they sheltered in. leaving Cage, Sarah, and Dev to search for her and their missing friend Izzy, who was also taken in the storm. Not only do they have to search for each other, there are crazy solar protesters, drug runners, and more tornadoes than you can count. This is definitely a wild ride from start to finish. What I loved the most was the characters. Joule is fiercely protective of her friends, which is a great character trait to have. I also love her internal monologues. Joule encounters a tornado, and her first thought isn’t about safety, but the fact that they don’t sound like a train. In fact, every time she’d heard a train, it had been a train. And now that she’d actually seen a tornado, it didn’t sound like a train at all. She was super salty that her limited information had turned out to be incorrect. Full review at Small Town Reviewer

    A very engrossing novel and a very ODD one at the same time. I have not read the first 2 books and this is good because this novel can be read as a stand alone. The main characters are a pair of twins who try to stick together, by finding jobs in the same company, in a future world ruined by climate change. I now live in Scotland UK but in the past I have lived in Texas and have been in a mini-tornado, which I found scary.

The plot with the weather as one of the main elements and new technology and traditional farming factions as another are excellent. The atmosphere is tense between the Solar Panel building team that the twins are working on (a project the extreme weather proof solar panel arrays) and the native farmers is well depicted. The writing style is excellent. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily. I shall definitely look out for more books by this author.

The dialog is realistic, without the vocal affectation some authors feel they must burden the reader with to sound "authentic Southern." The plot was sharp, fast-paced, and filled with enough twists to get Chubby Checker up and shouting, again. The characters are all well thought out (even the minor ones), with rich and vivid descriptions; making them easily identifiable. I can't wait for the next installment.

Mind you, I think they would be bored in no time. I am glad that the author has specified that this series is not actually a YA series. Yes, the main characters are quite young but it is very readable for those of us who, ahem, are a slightly older vintage than that. It works, it really does. Looking forward to the next book in the series :)

    I've been waiting for this update on Joule and Cage, and it did not disappoint! They're in Alabama on a job (together, of course, because how could we manage with them apart?), and as is usual for them there are natural disasters everywhere they turn causing danger and chaos. I loved seeing Joule and Cage in their element in their respective jobs and getting to live 'normal' lives... for a little while, anyway.

    Overall this addition to the series was a very enjoyable read. In a style that is uniquely A.J., the author keeps you wondering what will happen next. It was nice to drop back into the lives of the Mazur twins and get another glimpse into their world of mayhem. While this story isn't a bad read in any sense of the word, I was left feeling like there was much more story to be told and more exploration of a couple of other characters that begged to be shared (perhaps we'll see those later as a nove Overall this addition to the series was a very enjoyable read.

There is plenty of excitement from the Tornado's and the drug gang and you have a hard time stopping your reading. The book takes some twist from the tornados and the drugies, but you end up really having a terrific book. No spoilers on the ending. You will have to read it to find out what happens.

    With The Tempest, AJ Scudiere has written another gripping page-turner. The action kept the adrenaline pumping through my veins as I could not stop turning the pages until I reached the end. Her main characters, Joule and Cage continue to be developed into fully nuanced people. Every story in the Black Carbon series has shed a little more knowledge on their personalities and quirks. They have become friends one loves to check in with every so often just to find out what new things have occurred. With The Tempest, AJ Scudiere has written another gripping page-turner.

The author perfectly blends science with a plausible future to create such amazing and compelling stories. I highly recommend this story, as I recommend all of her stories. I believe that everyone will enjoy it and will fast become a fan of Scudiere’s as well.

Leave some time to watch some light TV program like “Death in Paradise” to give your emotional gray cells some respite.

    A Tornado Is Indifferent, It Only Seems to Want to Eat the World Once again, A.J. Scudiere has delivered a first-rate survival thriller! I've seen the odd green cast to the sky and the dark clouds massing until a funnel begins reaching down to touch the ground. My heart begins pounding every time I get a tornado warning on my phone.

But, I can't get enough of disaster fiction. I think it's my PTSD-addled way of coping with terror. The Tempest yielded one helluva catharsis. Each book in the Black Carbon series has had a completely different set of environmental challenges for the Mazur twins, Joule and Cage. Each one has kept me up, turning the pages until the wee hours. The plot of this third volume sees the twins move to Alabama to begin their first jobs post-college. They've been fortunate to land employment contracts with the same company, though each is doing a different job according to their separate fields of expertise. They like their coworkers, like their jobs, but then life quickly begins throwing bags of monkeywrenches at them. I was fortunate to get a review copy of this volume via BookSirens. I owned the first book in the series and liked it well enough that I bought the second book to read them all in order! This volume, like the other two, is a complete book and you don't have to read them in order, but I'm very glad that I did!

    I thoroughly enjoy A.J.’s ‘it could happen; it won’t, but it could’ science. She takes a natural problem (tornadoes), describes it well as it happens, then imposes other real rural problems onto this situation. Her research shows good insight into current economic and social pressures in the rural South without losing the pleasure of a well-written story.

Its stated in this book that they had not previously been in a tornado, but I could swear they were the night their mom was killed in The Hunted. I would love to see Jerry be a recurring character and see him grow as a person and meet his family, even if it drives Joule crazy. And more of Toto. Joule turning into a cat person was genius.

    This is the third book in the Black Carbon series by A J Scudiere. The twins Joule and Cage are working together in Alabama. They have survived the night hunters and the floods now it is another crisis -- tornados. The twins have help -- friends and coworkers - but there are more than tornados out there. I really like the way Ms. Scudiere writes and the interesting storylines. -- This book is particularly good, and I am really enjoying this series.

    The Tempest, the third book in the Black Carbon series, follows twin geniuses Cage and Joule as they move to rural Alabama for a job. Although they have been assured the area does not have a high likelihood for tornadoes, they quickly find themselves running from one. The twins and their new friends realize how unprepared they were for the Tempest to come. Is it true that tornadoes can target a specific person? Read The Tempest to find out!

    The Tempest is another mind-bending page turner—a.k.a. what I call a sciencey-thriller!— in this super cool Black Carbon suspense series from AJ Scudiere! For Joule and Cage, however, it’s another horrifying adventure just as they are trying hard to move on with their adult lives — and this time it’s even harder to contend with because their past tragedies and terrors have created some deep-rooted scars. Highly recommend!

    I enjoy the bond between the twins. Makes me wish I had one. Based on the previous books I was expecting something more to happen. There was a couple twists (no pun intended) I liked. The best thing about AJ's books are that you actually learn facts without knowing you are learning. Looking forward to the next trouble that finds the twins. I enjoy the bond between the twins.

    Loved when AJ made the twins central figures in her Black Carbon series. Really appreciate her focus on family ties and the bond the twins enjoy. Never thought a novel about tornados could be so suspenseful but I was wrong. The tornados almost take on hunter/predator characteristics which is what makes this story so unexpectedly engaging. Keep them coming please.

The Tempest is the third book in the Black Carbon series, and I was eager to read it because the main characters come to Alabama (my home state) to work on a controversial solar project.

Amid daily protests that become hostile, the twins and their coworkers find themselves amid a deadly tornado outbreak! I don't want to give spoilers, but I will say that these people seriously need to get the weather app on their phones! Ha! The author is from Tennessee and although I haven't asked if she's been directly affected by a tornado in the past, it's hard NOT to be affected in some way when you live in an area with frequent tornadoes. A few days after I finished the book we literally had two days of severe weather with a few tornadoes and then another two days with a serious tornado outbreak the following week. One tornado was on the ground for over 100 miles and on a direct path to several of my family and friends. Luckily, my family was ok, but that wasn't the case for many. Anyway, I'm giving The Tempest a thumbs up and have downloaded the first in the series because I didn't read them in order (oops). And I hope the twins will have a weather app on their phones in the next installment! 🧐😆
