Turns out Ms Newcombe has quite the passion for space, as demonstrated by the offhand way in which Echoes of the Storm handles interplanetary travel, various electronical gadgets, little oddities like multiple moons, bipedal wolves and what-not. Ultimately, though, it is not the technical setting as such that makes this book fly, it is the story and the characters.
Once again, Ms Newcombe delivers characters that somehow grow out of the page. The heroic and determined Jack, the equally heroic Tic (and let’s not get me started on the even more heroic Mr Payne) are fighting against the resident superpower Galilei, determined to wrest their planet out of the greedy hands of the Galilean empire. Pitted against them is a certain Ari Norse, a man who has doubly betrayed Jack: not only was he pretending to be as invested as Jack in the resistance, but he was also Jack’s lover.
As to the story, it is full of twists and turns, with Norse proving a more than capable adversary to the sheer heart of the people pledged to the resistance. This story races along and how it all ends, I leave for the reader to find out for themselves!
Echoes of the Storm is a science-fiction space novel. If you are a fan of Star Wars you will enjoy this book. The story is set in the 24th Century and Jack Gamble is fleeing his home on Torredo which is under attack by Galilei led by Jack’s once lover, Ari Norse who wants to rule the galaxy. From the very first line: “Is this how it ends?” to the end the book is full of betrayal, violence, death, destruction, politics, power, and newly formed friendships with lots of twists, turns, and tension. Brilliantly executed with well-rounded characters, and believable worlds, Newcomb does a good job showing readers what characters look like, how they think, and what they feel. And Jack Gamble feels betrayed. His mission: to free Torredo from Galilei and to rid himself of Ari Norse, no matter the cost. And he knows he cannot do it alone.
