"Lewis's heroes all have heart and are sympathetic even in their flaws. The writing covers complicated scenarios with clear, strong wording. The book also has plenty of additional facts included as an afterword for anyone new to the subject, giving the reader all the information they need to know to follow the more technical details. And although the subject matter is at times bleak, the darkness is undercut with a dry but hearty sense of humor that even a humble layman such as myself can appreciate. I would recommend it to anyone who is curious about the history of our area, or anyone who's simply looking for a good yarn." - New Castle Record
"Storm Coming is one of the best historical novels I have read this year. The story was very well handled by Jack W. Lewis; the character development was wonderfully crafted. Alexander's journey was poignant and very believable, mainly because it is based on a true story and because Mr. Lewis brought the character to life with his sharp words and supreme handle on the story. This novel was truly tremendous." Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite

Accuracy and authenticity are essential elements to readers of historical novels. In this respect, the reader will not be disappointed. The extensive Reference List testifies to Mr. Lewis's thorough research, which was complemented by his visits to the actual towns, villages and battlefields cited in his novel. In short, this book is a must read for Civil War aficionados, particularly for those who may have overlooked the West Virginia story. It will be equally appealing to those readers who enjoy a dash of “a good tale” with their history. I thoroughly enjoyed the book for both reasons and highly recommend it!
