Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala return in this second installment from the NUMA Files by Clive Cussler and Graham Brown. Their first collaboration was "Devil's Gate" in November last year. In this reviewer's opinion "The Storm" is a far better work for a number of reasons. First, the length of the novel is about sixty-four pages shorter than its predecessor. Fat has been trimmed from the plot, leaving a much leaner story line. Second, the proofreading errors that plagued "Devil's Gate" are gone here. Perhaps it was something as simple as a change of editors. And finally, the actual writing is much better this time. It's a lot crisper.

"The Storm" begins with a very short Prologue set in 1943 in the Indian Ocean. A "fast freighter" is under attack by the Japanese. Its top secret cargo seems to be of great interest to them. Chapter 1 takes us to 1967 in northern Yemen. A family is slaughtered and a pact to take revenge is set. Fast forward to June 2012 when a NUMA research vessel is overrun by some type of particle mass that swarms the ship, leading to the deaths of its three-person crew.

These three seemingly disparate events bring the NUMA Special Projects team (Austin, Zavala, and the Trouts) to the Maldives to investigate. Now that Dirk Pitt is Director of NUMA and rarely in the field, Kurt Austin has become the workhorse and he does a fine job of it.

First-time Cussler readers will not be disappointed, and long-time fans of the series should be pleasingly surprised with the new turn of writing events. I think everyone will enjoy this storm.

And finally a trivia footnote: One of the members of the evil consortium is Sheik Abin da-Alhrama. Readers may recognize the play on letters between Alhrama and Alhambra. Clive Cussler is a proud graduate of Alhambra High School.

When I first came across this title, it brought a flashback of "The Perfect Storm.' I saw the Movie several times, which is fantastic. However, there is no comparison between that Movie and this book, but they are both winners! "THE STORM" is an unforgettable thrilling tale about a ship that goes up in flames, after it gets attacked with mysterious black particles as it sits in the Indian Ocean. The horrific incident goes under investigation by Kurt and Joe, and the high-speed drama begins. What discovery do they find? Will the weather be altered on a global scale, and who will survive? Clive Cussler delivers an Entertaining Masterpiece from beginning to end, which grabs your interest in the first chapter. Highly recommended for all adventure lovers!

This book has less of the boring narration and more of the jam-packed action compared with Clives's and Brown's first collaboration.The Storm's prose is crispier and the leaner storyline made the NUMA Special Project teams stand out.This is something that both first-time and long-time readers will enjoy.

When I see that Cussler has come out with another NUMA file thriller I know I will be in for a wild ride. This time around it's more of a scientific thriller with some eerily syfy type weapons. Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala, among other regulars, strive to defeat what you think is the undefeatable. This is what makes this an awesome escapist thriller. I feel this is one of his best, along with Graham Brown, to come out in a couple years. Loved it!

This was my first Clive Cussler book. Pretty simple overall. The action wasn't very believable and some of the interactions of the characters was rather silly. When I'm reading a good fiction novel, I imagine that I'm watching it unfold on the big screen. This seemed like a made for TV movie on the USA network! OK if there's nothing else on so to speak.

Following the trend of many successful authors, Clive Cussler seems to be selling the use of his name to young and unknown writers. It is my personal opinion that each new "Clive Cussler" novel is only as good as the writer who is currently utilizing his name for the sake of sales. When written by Cussler each novel was consistently well done with a plausible story line, but now it depends on an unknown factor....just who is actually writing this particular novel and how good is he? I'm kind of old fashioned in that when I purchase a Mercedes I would like it to actually be a Mercedes and not something hacked together in a backyard shop and a name plate glued on later.

This is another of Clive's page turners. I could not put it down. If you have never read any of Clive's books, you're really going to enjoy his latest offering The Storm. His characters are colorful and seem to rise to real life as you read. Don't miss this one, everybody is going to be talking about The Storm.

In keeping with is other superb stories, Cussler creates a nautical nightmare that stretches into the desert and back to sea again. What an impressive story and very unexpected. The villian you will love to hate, along with his minions and the story will keep you on the edge of your seat. I bought the audio book because I like to keep "reading" while I'm on the road. I definitely recommend this story in print or as an audio book. I guarantee you though, it will make an impression. May even make you think twice about wading into the glistening ocean the next time you go to the beach.
