Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Panoramic, authentic, explosively dramatic--this is the breathtaking new series The First Americans, which began with Book I, Beyond The Sea Of Ice. Now the heroic great hunter Torka, his woman Lonit, and his adopted son Karana emerge from a land forbidden to all men, a land where mountains walk and spirits speak. Across the fierce glacial tundra Torka leads his people--survivors of a horrifying natural disaster--to a winter camp where many bands gather to hunt the great mammoth. There he and his followers encounter an evil more dangerous than the wild lands--the magic man called Navahlk, who vows cruel destruction of the bold hunter Torka. To survive they must draw upon the courage of one brave boy who will grow to manhood and see with his mind's eye where the sun's light has led them--to the dawn of man on the American continent.

I picked up this book along with the first in the series, "Beyond the Sea of Ice" never having heard of the series or the author, in a used book store. I have never in my life been so pleasantly surprised as I have been by these two books. "Corridor of Storms" kept me up every night for a week at least an hour past my usual bedtime; I was so enthralled by the wonderful characters. Anything can and does happen in William Sarabande's vividly animated land of ice and precarious survival. The author is not the least bit afraid to take chances and write out characters in sudden and shocking situations, which keeps the reader on the edge of their seat, never taking any character for granted. I have grown very fond of Torka and his woman Lonit, who had very realistic attraction for the fatally charming Navahk. All characters are true to life, with very human flaws and conflicting emotions. More than anything else, this book has shown with striking clarity what a tenuous grip all human beings had on their very existence in the age of ice. Before I had even finished with "Corridor of Storms", I made another trip to the used book store and stocked up on the next six volumes, eagerly anticipating the rest of the saga.

It's wonderful when an author can create a sequel that's just as good as the first book in a series. This is one of those occasions. This book picks up where the first left off and thankfully is just as good. Like the first book, this story is full of drama, adventure, and excitement. The characters grow as they learn from their experiences, and new characters add more interest and plot twists. I'd recommend this book -- even if you don't typically read this type of fiction. It's that good.

I have just finished this book and the first in the series as well. They are totally engrossing. What an author to involve the reader as much as Sarabande can!!! I am a faithful reader of Mz. Auel's earthchildren and I have enjoyed these as well. Now I can't wait to start the next in the series!!! This is such a nice diversion waiting for the next Jean Auel novel to come out. I never even knew these wonderful books were out there but now that I have found them I can't wait to finish the series!!! A MUST READ!!!

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By H. Glude on September 17, 2005
Format: Paperback
I have read these books at least a dozen times, and I have found my patience with the 'bad guys' growing less on each read. Sexual deviancy and insanity seems to be a driving factor for Sarabande's bad guys after the first book (which was by far my favorite). Don't get me wrong. There's a lot of great writing in these books, but pages and pages of despotic sexuality and insanity really gets old, as does the creature that makes its 'speaking' debut in this book that seems to based very loosely on a spirit sacred to some Native American tribes - at least, that's the best I've been able to come up with from some searches on 'Wanawut'. Sarabande appears to be of the philosophy that given free reign, most people will be lazy, power-hungry and/or cruel, and seems to enjoy exploring the depths to which a person or group of people might sink, repeatedly, for multiple Bad Guys throughout the course of the full series. I am not quite ready to throw these off the shelf, but each attempt to reread through that junk brings me closer to doing so.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am completely astounded at the brutality he is writing. All history is myth because we were not there. Sarabande is making up a narrative around some archeological finds and that underneath he probably dislikes all women. The writing is disturbing to say the least, and most especially because this is not a thriller or horror genre. I am halfway through this book and had to put the book down twice because of the brutality against the women. I am not sure I will be able to finish this book. I just don't see the sense in what the author is trying to achieve. Book needs to be moved to a new genre or misogynistic gore.

By M. Reynard VINE VOICE on February 21, 2013
Format: Paperback
Corridor of Storms is the 2nd book in the First Americans series. If you haven't read the first book, I highly suggest you go start there, otherwise you'll be a bit lost in this book.

Torka and his band (3 women, a boy, and some children) have been living in a sheltered valley for about three years. However, when one of the women is having a troubled pregnancy, he knows they must leave their valley and search out the gathering of other tribes. The boy, Karana, is not at all happy about this excursion. He remembers the violence of other people and when they reach the gathering, there are some there who like Torka and some that would do anything to see him dead.

Torka, for all that he is brave and bold, does not have a lick of good sense. Constantly he is warned not to do something, only to do it anyway thinking it is in his women's best interest. And since Lonit is normally such a strong character, it is surprising to see her so wimpy and simpering in this book. Karana is about the only one with sense, and even he is a little too brash at times. Then there's the bad guys, especially Navahk. He is pure evil. There really is no redeeming goodness in him. Which kind of makes it too easy to dislike him and wish the worst on him. The best bad guys have an ounce of humanity that can confuse the reader's feelings.

And then there's the fact that this plot is almost identical to that of the first book. Torka living peacefully and happily in the small band but then wanting to find other people. Torka finding other people and life goes all wrong before he finally strikes out on his own again. You'd think he'd have learned after several repeated mistakes. This book, like the first, is very violent too. And there is a lot of sexual violence in this one.
