Raelyn Bell's journey started in "Break the Stone," the first novel in the Golden Chains series. After following the puzzle pieces and escaping dangerous threats, she discovered that her Ma has been alive all these years.

But learning that information came at a cost. In "Hunt the Storm," Raelyn travels across the world to a desert with the goal to bring her Ma home. While dealing with the grief of what she had already lost, Raelyn pushes people away, including her boyfriend, Kody, who only wants to help and support her. An evil overlord in this foreign land stands in her way of saving Ma. Will Raelyn ever find the parent connection she has always searched for? Will her and Kody last through the obstacles they face in the desert?

"I read Break the Stone as a preliminary beta reader. Even with an unpolished copy, I could not put it down. It's a fantastic debut for new author Cassie Swindon, full of suspense and romance." Anna Cackler

"This is a great book that will make you laugh, cry, and keep you in suspense! I'm definitely looking forward to reading the next book in this exciting trilogy!" Marcia Campbell

"This story will make you want to keep reading to til the end to find out what will happen. It's a great book and you will not be disappointed. It does end in a cliffhanger but it's well worth the read and you will want to read the next book just find out what will happen next." Dianna Malone

"A fantastic read from a new author! The mystery and seduction that sucks you in and takes you for an emotional rollercoaster ride. There are many twists and turns that keep you guessing how it will end and leave you wanting more. You will fall in love with Raelyn and join her on the journey to find out what happened to her mother. This is the first book in a trilogy and I cannot wait for book 2." Catherine Kroeger

"Every sentence Cassie writes serves a purpose, each paragraph is carefully detailed, and each scene leaves the reader grateful for the next chapter. With a strong supporting cast of characters, a deepening mystery, and relationships that both challenge and deepen our cultural understanding, Break the Stone is a fascinating and seductive story that will leave you wanting more!" Natalie Proudfoot

Cali pointed in her brother’s face. “You said we’d be home by now.”

Kody grunted and turned, crossing his arms. “But what if—"

“No! Stop! Raelyn made her choice! What are we supposed to do, chase after her?”

“You don’t know anything about this area!” Kody bellowed, “Overnight she could die from dehydration in the desert, be abducted by a sex trafficking organization, get lost in a desert storm, or eaten by whatever animals are roaming out there at night.” Images of Raelyn’s dead body lying in the desert flashed through his mind, and his gut clenched tight.

“She should’ve thought about that beforehand,” said Cali.

“We need to convince the villagers to lend us their Jeep.”

Kody jogged away, with Cali following. He ran past some kids playing and dashed back toward the hut. When he swung the hut door open, he threw Cali’s backpack over his shoulder. 

Cali looked around the tent. “Wait. She took Liam with her? Why did she leave me?” Her jaw dropped. “That sneaky little squirrel.”

A group of villagers scurried over, yelling in Arabic.

Cali moved behind him and whispered. “Uh, bro, they took our guns.” 

“I can see that,” Kody spoke over his shoulder. “They’re our friends. They won’t hurt us. Meet in my hut.” 

Her footsteps scurried away. 

The wind wafted enticing scents of breakfast, and his stomach rumbled. He couldn’t guess the name of the foreign spice, but he’d eat just about anything after he’d gone so long without a decent meal. Other friendly locals were mounting horses.

“Our Jeep is gone.” The man who shared his family’s dinner with them the previous night rushed forward, looking terrified.

“I’ll help you find it.” Kody nodded. “I think I know where it’s headed.”

“No, you stay here and protect the little ones. We don’t have enough horses.”

Swearing under his breath, Kody nodded, then jogged to his hut and flung open the door. “Cali, we need to–”


The hut was empty. 


Her small footprints were imprinted in the dirt, along with a larger set. Kody spotted a faint line of sand across the ground where someone was dragged. 

“No. No. No!” Kody followed the trail to the tiny bathroom area in the back, where a hole was ripped open in the hut’s wall. In the distance, a horse galloped away, and Cali’s long ebony braids flopped in the air. He grabbed his pack from the floor and chased after them until their silhouettes disappeared. 

The sun melted his eyes, sweat beaded down his face, his lungs craved air, and his legs turned to jelly. Panting, Kody dropped hard to his knees in complete exhaustion, hopelessness, and panic combined into a heart-racing package of fear. 

How can I save both of them? 

The sandstorm accelerated, threatening to swallow everything he loved.
