High school can be deadly . . .

Behind the ivy-clad walls of an exclusive boarding school, lurks a sinister web of corruption, scandal, and conspiracy.

American student Raven Stone has noticed something is horribly wrong. First there were the unexplained disappearances. Then there were the teachers’ lies. And now the death threats . . .

Also entangled in the disturbing turn of events is the enigmatic Kieran Storm – a fellow student with a killer intellect and a body to die for. He’s heading for trouble and taking her with him. Raven can feel herself falling in love, but can she trust a boy she knows almost nothing about?
First reviews:

Olivia Clements (via Facebook) - 'Instead of reviewing the Finding Sky Trilogy which I have written three fanfics about, [OUP] sent me the manuscript of Storm and Stone and asked me to review it ahead of publication. I just have to say its incredible. I have completely rewritten my idea of my Mr Darcy to revolve around Kieran. He is to die for.

Lost to books: 'Storm and Stone didn't disappoint and I think is my new favourite by Joss Stirling....It was sweet, fun, emotional and had just the right amount of danger.'

The Bookbag: 'Excellent plot and characters whom I really warmed to as the novel progressed, combined with a strong romance, make this one an intriguing new direction for Joss Stirling.'

The Mile Long Bookshelf: 'This is a fantastic book that will keep you guessing and you won't want to put it down.'

To Another World: 'Unputdownable. In one word, that sums up Storm and Stone entirely (well. I had to put it down for dinner, but apart from that...). In a phenomenal setting with clear-cut characters, I found it flawless and I absolutely adored it.'

Fabulous Bookfiend: 'I think if you are a fan of Joss Stirling's other writing, you definitely won't be disappointed with her latest novel. If, like me, to are slightly newer to this genre I think this is an excellent way to ease yourself in and there is enough of a love story there for even the most die hard of romance fans!'

GirlReporter: 'With its mix of crime and mystery, Storm and Stone is a great alternative to all the YA dystopia out there.'

Eventide Reads: 'Dark and deadly, and utterly awesome.'

Amy Bookworm: 'I devoured every page.'
