I have read about four to five of the author's works and that too consecutively and by far this is the only book that has not scared me to my bones. His works especially Dark winter and the vampire stories had literally made me crawl into hiding
Stormling is a pretty intriguing and unique story set in the paranormal world of Mordana and with its share of unique characters and breeds, their world is undoubtedly a beautiful getaway but sadly there are a whole lot of gaps that deny stormling from becoming into a well knit book
(oh man !!! i hate doing this to the author )
Stormling suffers from sketchy outlines of its basic world, Mordana. The basic information or pillars to the world and its basic functioning is not clear enough to make you understand what exactly is going on and how the world of Mordana works.Though i would admit that there are information and structures present but they are not concrete enough to paint you a whole picture of this alien world to you
There were couple of characters who shares similar names except for an alphabet change between them and this for me created a whole lot of turning back pages and head scratching. You have to pay really close attention. Apart from that at the beginning, it was difficult to track the characters and their activities. It was kind of people showing up in the book without proper resume and you have no idea where they came from, why are they here and what are they doing. There is also fluctuating narration during the first half.
By the second half, the book gets better and by now you have much clear picture of which characters are important and what are they doing and what exactly is going around. The characters and events starts coming out of the haze and gives you a better understanding and suddenly the world of Mordana makes sense
The fact is that you should show a bit of patience around the book as it is lengthy for one and the book actually starts picking up towards the second half
Stormling has a pretty interesting and intricate story line with exciting display of characters but sadly opens to a whole lot of chaos in the beginning with so many characters thrown at you without warnings and that too in a completely alien world. However by the second half each characters shapes better and the purpose of their existence is much more vivid. The book completely transitions itself and climbs to much better plains towards the end. You need to hold on to the book to see it growing, evolving and getting sharper.
There were about ten central characters in the book; my two favorites were Kayla (an Andurii woman) and Ophelia (a human girl). The author writes female characters very well. I've read too many science fiction books that have flat female characters, but Hennessy does a fabulous job of creating three-dimensional women in his book.
Most of the book takes place in a fictional world called Mordana, where an evil being decides to wreak havoc on a mostly peaceful realm. There are magical twin necklaces that fall into the wrong hands, and a teenage girl from earth finds a powerful stone that was separated from one of the necklaces. It turns out the stone is the key to restoring peace in Mordana, and it is up to Ophelia to journey to this unknown world to save several innocent races from an evil being whose aim is to rule over Mordana.
I don't want to give away any of the surprises in the book, but there were many unexpected twists and turns. I love stories that keep me on my toes. I never knew who would make it to the next chapter! Another thing I enjoyed about the story was the author makes the reader feel empathy even for the wicked characters, which is no easy feat. The ending was wrapped up nicely, but it made me want more, and I'm anxiously awaiting the release of the next book in the series. I'll definitely be reading more by this author. John Hennessy has been added to my favorite authors list!
Although Paranormal Fantasy is not my preferred genre, I read the 500 page book to the very end and found it most intriguing.
John is a talented and skilled writer and his writings impressed me.
He deserves full marks for his imagination, creativity, and writing skills, and for putting together such a story filled with so many characters with the strangest of names..
I enjoyed the book and would be reading more of his books.
I must add that I would like to see this book made into a movie. It has good potential for one.
