Content

Get swept into the second, even more explosive STORM! Will, Andrew, and Gaia are a trio of teen geniuses, and they’re taking Venice by STORM. 
All over Italy, mysterious burglaries are making headlines—news footage shows a strange, spectral form at the crime scenes.
The thefts are dubbed the work of Il Fantasma: the Ghost.
Through a series of exhilarating twists, Will, Andrew, and Gaia discover that the Ghost is part of a larger and more sinister plot than they could have imagined, one involving a decrepit Venetian castle, a dangerous cult, microscopic selforganizing robots, and quantum computers with a vile purpose and horrific consequences.
Armed with high-speed boats, sonar helmets, and tons of cool gear, STORM must face all manner of obstacles— even cyborg sharks!—to find and stop the mind behind the mayhem.
Little do they know, the enemy just might be a dear old friend.

  •     The Storm Operatives are back in another action-packed adventure. This time Will, Andrew, and Gaia are up against something even more dangerous than that found in STORM: THE INFINITY CODE.Two burglaries have hit the headlines. Why? Because the thing in the video is a strange spectral form that doesn't leave any prints behind and doesn't look human, earning it the name Il Fantastma or The Ghost.A girl, named Cristina, witnesses The Ghost steal a precious heirloom so she goes after it, only letting STORM know of her plans. After she goes missing, STORM takes the case and goes on the trail of an unknown, deadly, smart criminal, who wants to plunge the world into chaos.STORM: THE GHOST MACHINE was an adventure filled with twists and turns. There were some surprising twists that kept you on the edge of your seat. The book can be read as a stand-alone, but if you want more background information on the characters, it's better if you read the first book. Even if you haven't read the first book, though, you won't be lost, and you will be sucked into this book. Young sure shows off how much research she did to make sure that the weapons used were believable and didn't seem too "out there."Fans of the ALEX RIDER or YOUNG BOND series' will definitely love this one.Reviewed by: Bookluver-Carol

  •     Apparently this book is also distributed under the title of "S. T. O. R. M. - the Ghostmaster." Other than buying two copies of the same book with different names, my 9-year-old son loves these books. He enjoyed Alex Rider so we found these under a search for similar books.
