TOBIAS S. BUCKELL is a New York Times bestselling author whose books and his fifty-plus short stories have been translated around the world. He is the author of the novels Crystal Rain, Ragamuffin, Sly Mongoose, Halo ®: The Code Protocol, and Arctic Rising. Buckell hails from the Caribbean, where as a child he lived on boats in Grenada and the British and US Virgin Islands. When he was a teenager, a series of hurricanes destroyed the boat his family was living on and they moved to Ohio, where he still lives today with his wife and daughters.
Toby's book moves along crisply, with believable and likable characters.
Hurricane Fever is a good beach read that mostly takes place on windy Caribbean beaches that are ever-threatened by hurricanes.
There is violence (just like in a Bond movie) but Buckell doesn't revel in showcasing the gore or making it excessive.
Toby does a great job transitioning the character for his other book to the main character of this book. I recommend reading Artic Rising along with Hurricane Fever. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Chad Grieser

Good story with a different protagonist who is smart and capable but not superhuman. Probably would have liked it better if I had known it was a sequel and read the first book... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Lance Roberts
