Publisher's Write-Up

A violent Storm hits the castle where Graciou lives with his father and his extended family. After becoming separated from his father because of The Storm, Graciou now finds himself in his eighteenth year, wanting to answer so many questions that have haunted him since that day.

Meanwhile The Storm works to unravel itself against him, as Graciou is exiled from his place of safety and journeys to understand what happened that day. On his journey, he starts to stumble across fragments of the Storms attack and the devastation that lies in its wake. But instead of answers, he only finds further questions… until he meets a seemingly mad old woman, who starts to reveal what happened all those years ago, but as she begins to tell her story, is all as it would seem?

And what of the man who waits in the shadows, who waits with such purpose?

Rating 5/10
The Storms of Acias tells the story of troubled teenager Graciou, and his journey to find the father he was separated from by The Storm as a boy. Along the way he does battle with a number of mysterious, ghostly figures, who play mind games to try and divert him from his path.

It’s an engaging read, with plenty of action to keep the reader entertained. However, it was sometimes confusing, and probably too open-ended as the author attempts to set the scene for the next book in the series.

The author’s obvious uncertainty on the direction of the narrative and the characters made it difficult to identify with the main players. It’s something he will need to address in the sequel.
