Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply superb, surpassing J.R.R T' by a country mile!! 26 Jun 2012

Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
Valarie Douglas has just become one of my favourite authors! Previously I read "Not Magic enough" and "Setting Boundaries" by her. Now I don't know, because I have not bothered to ask, but these could have been her first published works. In any event I reviewed them giving only a 3 star rating, but I did have the feeling she had what it took to write a really good book. (See my other reviews). Well I was wrong. "The Coming Storm" is not a really good book, it's a GREAT book! Yes it's a tale of Elves, Humans, Dwarves, Goblins etc, Yes I know Tolkien is the benchmark. But to my mind if Valerie Douglas had written this book first, Tolkien would have had to up his game to get published. I found the plot made sense, the characters we meet are relevant and help to move the story forward, sideways and sometimes backwards...
If it is the point of a book, that having started it you want to finish it, then having read it, you don't want the story and characters to cease. Then by that Benchmark this is a great piece of work. I have my Kindle set to show me what percentage I am through the book I am reading. Valerie is one of those authors where you see that you are, say 52% and you cry because even though it is a long story, I didn't want it to finish and at 52% I was already saddened that I was over half way through what was becoming and now is one of my favourite books. There are no spoilers here, no reference or hint at events. If you read my review considering whether to get this book. Please, please take my advice, do yourself a favour and read it!

From the Inside Flap

The mother bear had put up aterrible fight to save her cubs, as such will do when their young werethreatened. All around the clearing the dirt was torn up, the underbrushcrushed and the trees marked with blood and fur. It had been a valiant butfutile effort on the part of the bear. Little remained of her and her offspringexcept for the blood, the shattered bones and a few traces of offal. They stankbut not nearly as much as the reek of something else, something that chilledElon's blood.
"Kobold," he said, quietlyinto the unnatural silence of the wood, mute testimony to the fact that thepredators that had done this still remained somewhere near.
They hadn't reckoned onkobolds. Although there had been reports of something killing down here, they'dthought it was perhaps a young orc or a boggart. So far from the borderlands,it would've been more likely by far to be a rogue bear.
It wasn't the bear that had gonerogue.
Every sense was alert, hiseyes as much on the destruction here as on the least twitch of a branch againstthe breeze.
Around him, the eyes of theother Hunters scanned everywhere, down in the shadows, up into the branches andall around. Bows were strung and arrows were notched against what they couldn'tsee.
"Aye," Colath said, kneelingin the dirt next to a particularly noxious heap of offal and scat. Looking up,he gave Elon a significant look. "More than one."
Elon looked closer, not thathe had any doubts as to true-friend's assessment. The signs were unmistakable.The coldness in his belly spread. Colath, his true-friend, paxman and mosttrusted companion, was vulnerable down there. Especially to kobolds, who ranlow to the ground.
"Kobolds don't travel inpacks. Something's wrong here. Get back in the saddle, Colath, and quickly."
