Book Review: Chausiku - The Gathering Storm - Book 1
by Pamela E Cash
Reviewed by J Bryden Lloyd

In the interests of openness and honesty, I would like to state that the book was gifted to me in return for an honest review.

Writing Style - 4.0/5.0 (Very Good)
This is a strong, enjoyable narrative work with nicely balanced dialogue and a well defined style.
This feels like a YA Fiction, though the writing does lend itself to younger readers and I have to say, I enjoyed the read. I should also point out that younger readers will be faced with several scenes of very graphic violence and a few deaths, so parents should take note that this is not aimed at children, despite the cover and writing style.

Character Development - 4.0/5.0 (Very Good)
I very much liked the characters. All of them worked well and developed nicely throughout the story. There were shades of "Heroes" in parts of the sub-plots, but these were very individual and nicely written into the overall plot line.
Chausiku's sudden abilities were nicely approached, and it made her into a far more rounded character as she learned and adapted.
I did feel that the father character needed a little more than just emotional content. Although his development was entirely understandable based upon the plot revolving around him, he never really struck me as a `father' character, and certainly not the father of a teenage girl.

Descriptive - 4.5/5.0 (Excellent)
The environments and locations were given in vivid detail. The descriptive remained consistently good throughout and the author made good use of an existing knowledge of the real areas she described.

Just very, very bad. The writer seems to not know the usefulness of replacing proper names with pronouns, he, she, etc. It's written in a very heavy heaved manner and we're bludgeoned over the head with information rather than being shown things, since apparently none of the characters have facial expressions, or express themselves through gesture or body language. Heck, even the obvious is laid out, such as "everyone called the department of motor vehicles the DMV" in a conversation where the protagonist explicitly states that if she gets the car she wants she'll be at the DMV the next day to get her license. Umm...Truly? Really? Reads like it was written for twelve year olds by a twelve year old, and the fact that there are so many positive reviews for this makes me despair for the human race. Either that or the reviews were written by the aforementioned twelve year olds. Or friends of the author.

Chausiku was a fun read, great story and well developed characters. I would recommend this book to anyone, especially who enjoys Harry Potter like books. This would be a nice gift for a young teens. Looking forward to reading more Chausiku adventures in the future!

This novel is a prime example of the pitfalls of e-publishing.

There is a good concept here. But the lack of writing skills by the author makes reading this story a chore. I slogged through hoping for an interesting denouement, but the only unpredictable part was the cold cruelty of the fight scene.

A heavy rewrite with the help of a good copyeditor might make this a good read. But as it stands, it is not worth the time and effort required.

This is the story of a motherless teen-age girl, Chausiku (Chassie), who discovers a family history of magic and power. Much of the plot points depend on the story of Chausiku's mother. Rather than chapters relating past events, the backstory is presented as memories narrated by characters. But these narrations ignore who the narrator is, often to the point that the narrator calls himself by name. In fact, the whole story is unrelentingly expository. As another reviewer noted, the author seems unaware of the existence of pronouns. Often every character present is named when a simple "they" would have kept the flow of the story going. There are also too many passages spent explaining things that are irrelevant to the story, like the geography of streets and landmarks.

What little dialogue there is does not reflect the speaker's personality. The author sometimes has the teens use contemporary phrases, but that does nothing to distinguish the speaker. And none of the dialogue advances the plot or enhances the reader's understanding of the situation..

Grammar errors popped up all over. Some could be considered typographical errors. But many were bad enough to be distracting and confusing. For example, "Kate walked to the door and watched them drive out of the garage through the screen door.

I loved reading about this young girl and the way her life played out when she became 16 years old. A fantasy and love story combined with lots of scrapping with the bad guys mixed in. What more can you ask for? I loved it.

This book definitely feels like a YA book. It honestly in cases felt like it was over explaining the obvious, but I am pre-reading for my girls who will love every aspect of this book. While the writing style is simpler, I did enjoy the book front to back, and the author was descriptive so that I could see the story as it evolved and unfolded.

I loved how the author left the book hanging on suspense leaving us begging for more and also leaving the door open for a sequel. I hope!
