And I must say, David Shane Burton really knows how to write an exellent story, and I did not feel dissapointet at all! Quite the opposite, actually.
The novel is filled with amazing charachters, technology and a faboulous writing skills. If you liked Lord Of The Rings... You're gonna like this.
From the very beginning you are (or at least I was) absolutely dragged into the story... even on the very first page, with a name as exciting as "Historical Background".
Usually I wouldn't think a "Historical background" could catch me, but this one did.
Shane has invented a whole new star system, with... maybe I shouldn't tell you!? You ought to read this novel, no doubt! You ought to find out yourself. An absolute must-read! The coolest novel I read - ever!
Black Storm Rising is one of the most imaginative and faith filled tales I have ever read. It is set in a unique solar system with characters from ancient, modern, primitive, and advanced cultures, all of which have been creatively brought together. I am very picky about villains, so I was very pleased to discover that the Villains in this book are Star Wars and Lord of the Rings quality or above!
But most importantly, Jesus is not left out. Prayer is a big part of the character's lives...the Christian characters, that is.
This is a wonderful book that is well worth it.
I took great pleasure in reading a well written book by a Christian and actually understood how the story line developed and made since too me. I thank the author for having not only an outstanding imagination but also keeping with sound Christian believes in developing the story. It was refreshing to see no demonic charters were needed or some outrageous story line to capture your attention. I am looking forward to this author's next book.
I enjoyed the off-planet venue of this story. I like sci-fi and I like creativity, but the best thing about this book is definately the Chistian message. This author proves that you can have a well-developed story, with make-believe characters and places, and still ingrain a good Gospel message with it.
As I understand it, this book is the first of a Trilogy. I expected it to end on more of a cliff-hanger, but it did not. It was a finished and completed story, which left a few ends open for a sequal, but it did not leave me hanging. I was happy.
I would recommend this book to anyone with an imagination, both Christian and Non-Christian alike. I am looking VERY forward to the next one! Great job, Shane!
It's a long book but well worth getting into and now I'm off to read the next book in the series...When Worlds Rage
"Black Storm Rising" (BSR) is a thrilling ride. D. Shane Burton does a wonderful job of allowing his characters to tease the reader with suggestions of hidden knowledge they hold but cannot divulge. This keeps the reader's interest to ponder what truly is happening. Much of the time, the plot twists catch you off guard, even though you were expecting them to show up somewhere. BSR is one of my top suggestions to a Christian Science Fiction reader. As an added bonus, BSR is twice the length of most novels, yet is priced as a regular novel. It is an excellent buy for the money and excellent choice for libraries to add their catalogs.
Teen Friendly: A (With the detail of writing, the BSR would be considered an adult story, but with no cursing or sexual scenes, it is definitely teen friendly.)
Christian Message: A (D. Shane Burton focus's greatly on morals, prayer, and trusting in God. Well Done.)
Drug or Alcohol Content: A (none)
Crude or Profane Language: A (none)
Sexual Content: A (none)
Writing: A- (Writing style is clear and descriptive. Only a few minor editing mistakes.)
