The Stormcaller is the debut of Tom Lloyd, and first in his Twilight Reign series It takes place in a world of Gods amongst men, fantastical creatures, epic battles, magic, prophecies, and temperamental deities The story begins with Isak, a white eye a powerful race created by the Gods to lead the people who is born stronger, faster, and charismatic than humans a natural leader of men Hated by his father, feared by his peers, and treated like a slave, Isak dreams of becoming a soldier in the army of the Lord of the Farlan His life changes when he is chosen by the Gods to become the heir to the throne, destined to defend and protect the people with his life The only problem is that white eyes are born with an unnatural temper and an inner rage that Isak is finding harder to control day by day.The modern fantasy genre is crowded with box breaking, convention subverting writers such as Joe Abercrombie and Scott Lynch New and gritty areas of fantasy are being explored, steering it away from the archetypes used by JRR Tolkein, and in its place leaving broken characters who are raw, bloodied, and complex Tom Lloyd s attempt to emulate their success fails miserably The Stormcaller tries too hard and too earnestly to be dark and twisted Instead, Lloyd has produced a work that is a strange amalgam This first novel does show some promise, but overall there were too many missteps, large and small, for me to really enjoy it The missteps fall into a couple categories first, problems with authorial control over the narrative, and second, aspects of the book that I object to but other readers may not.In the first category, I had four problems with the narrative First, Lloyd was not consistent with point of view The book was written with an omniscient narrator that jumped from character to character all over the map These jumps in perspective almost always were accompanied by a jump to a new scene and the reader was cued in to them by a line or chapter break However, at random points in the narrative Lloyd also jumped to a new character within the same scene which is a perfectly acceptable authorial tactic, but the reader HAS to be given a clue in the first sentence of the new perspective to avoid confusion Several times when this happened, I only caught on that he had switched perspectives after he had already switched back Making this even difficult was the fact that most of the characters performing actions away from the main narrative of Isak s maturation were never properly introduced or placed in their larger context Even using the inde 4.5 StarsAfter my reread, I have kept my rating the same There is a lot to like about this story Isak is a complex and sometimes scary protagonist The book is somewhat long but it is paced well and it never felt dragged out I wanted a second read through as I want to move on with the series I needed the second reread to remember and familiarize myself with the people, the places, and the plot.The Stormcaller was worth my time againOriginal reviewTom Llyod s Twilight Reign series has been in my reading queue for many years, I just never made the time to start it Finally, I devoured book one, and loved every minute of it This mature dark fantasy does not read like a first It is gritty, dirty, and quite imaginative Sure this book is the typical coming of age story of our main protagonist Iask, but it is done in a dark world and centers on a pretty bad ass man Isak is a Whiteeye, a very large, angry, magically adept loner, who has a short fuse of a temper, and a passion for violence and killing.The magic in this story, although not really explained or defined, is a treat in that it is violent and scary Isak is a war Mage and even cooler yet, he is also a Mage Smith, but he does not realize it.Iask is a fully realized hero that Llyod does a great job at filling him out He gives us enough to like and to cheer for, all the while balancing it with his darker, uncontrollable, killer side I liked him from the start.I liked the supporting cast Lord Bahl was a larger 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum have to say I did things a little bit backwards when it came to this series It all started with The God Tattoo, Tom Lloyd s anthology of stories from the Twilight Reign that I read last year Needless to say, I enjoyed it very much Further, it made me want to explore everything else this world had to offer, so when Pyr gave me the opportunity to read and review The Stormcaller, the first book of the series that began it all, I very enthusiastically accepted.That collection of tales had given me a taste of the Twilight Reign universe, and piqued my interest with its promise of a dark and epic fantasy Here was the world I had been introduced to, one of white eyes, ancient deities and terrible magic Now I was finally able to see the wider context, getting the full depth of the story filled with gods and demons, clandestine politics and violent clashes between warring peoples I feel like what I d gotten from the anthology was just a nibble And here, this wa
