Eye of the Storm by Frank Cavallo
*I received this book in exchange for an honest review. *
I have to say that Eye of the Storm by Frank Cavallo took me on a ride. When I first started the novel I thought it was going to be a military/science book with top-secret mission, then as I read I thought it was a book about something similar to the Bermuda triangle. Then it ended up turning into something very different in a wonderful way.Before I jump more into the review I wanted to share the synopsis with you.
“On a research mission in one of the most remote regions of the world, former Navy SEAL Eric Slade and Dr. Anna Fayne are caught in a mysterious storm. Catapulted through a rift in space-time, they are marooned on a lost world.
Struggling to survive and desperate to find a way home, they must confront the dangers of this savage land—a dark wizard and his army of undead—a warrior queen and her horde of fierce Neanderthals that stands against him—and a legendary treasure with the power to open the gateway between worlds, or to destroy them all: the Eye of the Storm.“
One of the things I loved most about this book is that it avoids unnecessary information, which keeps the book fast paced and interesting. For me nothing ruins a good book like unnecessary information that causes the book to drag. While reading Eye of the Storm there was never a dull moment so I read through this quickly. I ended up reading this 402 page book in four sittings. Also, the world Cavallo created is nothing short of magical. You can see the thought he put into the word his characters lived in as well as the characters themselves. His characters have attitude and determination, but they are also caring. Between Kerr, Slade, Dr. Fayne, Azreth and Threya there is not one character who is not well defined in their personality. Even characters other than this are well defined.
Overall, I have to say I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys epic adventures, science fiction or fantasy, or just enjoy reading about strong characters. I am giving this fast paced read 4 stars without a hint of hesitation. If any part of my review or the synopsis intrigues you, I think you will end you really enjoying this book.
