Sometimes, the greater good is best served by being a little… bad.

After spending some not-so-quality time in a white-collar prison, all Declan Storm wants is to have a few days of peace and solitude. Ideally, magic-free. But the moment he returns home, he realizes that rest is not in the foreseeable future.

A group of unhinged vampires took residence in Key West, unafraid to spill blood. And when Declan confronts them, he makes a shocking discovery that shakes him to the core. To add to his problems, his FBI handler notifies him that a priceless codex has been stolen, demanding his immediate assistance. Meanwhile, an unknown monster, wreaks havoc throughout South Florida, leaving a trail of dead witches in its wake. Fear and despair grip Key West’s magical community, and a supernatural hurricane is looming ominously on the horizon.

As Declan dives into the investigation, things spiral out of control fast. Before long, he finds himself lost in a labyrinth of ancient secrets and deceit. Cornered and desperate, he realizes that he has no choice but to face his dangerous past, trust a man who once betrayed him, and outsmart a vengeful ancient monster.

With his survival hanging by a thread and countless lives at stake, Declan must do the one thing he swore he’d never do.

But even if he does, it may not be enough…

If you like fast-paced, action-packed Urban Fantasy novels with dynamic characters, intense action, and breathtaking suspense, then you'll love this edge-of-your-seat series, with a touch of Slavic mythology.

What Readers Are Saying...


"Declan Storm is unlike any character we’ve met in the Salamanderverse. Shadowy but debonair, he is a complete enigma. ... Filled with excitement and adventure in typical Thorn fashion, I wasn’t able to put the book down until the last page. The Storm Awakened is worthy entry into Salamanderverse and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute reading the first entry in this new series. I can’t wait until the next entry."

"Declan is the kind of character I didn’t know I needed in my life, but I’m glad I now do! The Storm Awakened lives up to the promise of the Salamanderverse, and I absolutely loved the different look on the same World of Magic, the new characters, the new beasties and the great evil! It kept me on the edge of my seat and guessing all the way through to the end. Declan is a force to be reckoned with, and I for one cannot wait to read the rest in this series!"

"A brand new series with new characters that joins The Shadow Enforcer Series and The Fire Salamander Series! I absolutely loved everything about CHRONICLES OF STORM! Can't wait for the second book!"

~ Amazon / Goodreads Reviewer


"N.M. Thorn dives into the mystique, grit, and depth of these cultural and atmospheric influences, creating a richly textured world filled with dynamic characters and intense action that is realistically dark and dangerous. Declan Storm's journey is fraught with suspense thanks to the close narrative style and the emotional presentation of the character that has us rooting for him as we feel every struggle and challenge viscerally. While the intricate plot and unexpected twists really put him to the test, they also keep us guessing until the very end, thanks to some very satisfying details. Thorn's vivid descriptions and skillful pacing introduce us to a gorgeous, dangerous world and a thrilling adventure that leaves us eagerly anticipating the next installment in the series. Overall, I would highly recommend The Storm Awakened as a must-read for urban fantasy and mythology fans everywhere to enjoy."
