If I had any quibbles, it's that I would have liked to have seen author J.D. Rhoades raise the stakes for the reader by giving the bad guys just as much backstory and breadth of character. When you care almost as much about the baddies as you do the good guys, it creates a delicious moral ambiguity that makes it much harder to see the black hats go down -- as, inevitably, they must. But "Storm Surge" still satisfies on just about every level, and it says something deeply unpleasant about the publishing industry that it took a pass on this highly commercial story and forced Rhoades to put it out himself. Fortunately, for us, he did, and at $[...], it's one of the best book bargains I've ever come across.
Heaps of action, great characters, one wild rollercoaster of story: this is how thrillers need to be written!
I hate to admit it, but lately thrillers have been disappointing me. Too many wooden characters. Too many contrived plot twists. Too many doomsday devices threatening to destroy too many major cities, etc. Storm Surge is everything those try-hards are not: it's fresh, original and bloody great fun.
Thank you JD Rhoades for doing such a great job!
This hurricane is expertly described. The characters are perfect for their respective roles. The action is non-stop. And...the plot is on the money.
The premise of this story could actually come from the headlines about today's politics, since many sneaky things go on behind closed doors as power is sought by greedy men. However, I like the main characters and their desire to see right win over evil. This is one of those novels you can't put down until the solid ending releases you.
I'm expecting a sequel to this one...no need to let three, possibly four great characters sit on the bench. I highly recommend this novel for anyone enjoying suspense and payback. "Nice writin', Dusty. Keep it up and keep smilin'..."
And it is an enjoyable tale. The action is gritty, well written and easy to visualize. The setting is harsh- an island in the midst of a hurricane. The characters are well fleshed out and the dialogue is solid (even if the teenage girl sometimes speaks in a way that I consider out of character.) And the ending is gratifying.
The nice thing is there is more to the story than that. I almost gave this 5 stars, to be honest. This is a character-driven action story, and for myself that makes all the difference in the world. The details of the story are less important for me that the fact that the characters are interesting and are worth caring about, and on that count this story was really entertaining.
Highly recommended for fans of gritty action, especially those who enjoy a good Jack Reacher or John Rain novel.
