    Recommended for advanced readers.

    This was a very good book, but it gets extremely confusing at times. The author is constantly introducing new characters and side stories, and he tries to build the entire book's history all at once. It can get hard to follow, especially with so many names, but if you can keep up, it's a very intriguing and detailed novel.

    Promising

    I understand this is Mr. Lloyds first book, thus the 3 star rating. I found the basic story very good but I became confused with so many characters being introduced THROUGHOUT the book. I also found after the first 200 pages, it really got to the meat of his tale. The story has an abundance of "word-merchanting" detail which to some extent is helpful but a bit overboard.. All in all I would reccomend this for reading and would be interested in the sequel, but I'll be careful to read any excerpts to see if he can flow more evenly with the story and not jump around and leave me hanging.

    an exciting fantasy thriller

    White eyed are elitists as they are the chosen ones of the Gods. They are always physically and intelligently superior to the inferior non-white eyes and on top of those advantages can use magic too. Besides obvious envy from the nonentitites, their quick rage has left the ¿nons¿ fearing the white eyed.----------- Isak is a white eye who killed his ¿non¿ mother in childbirth his father loathes his wagonbrat offspring who he is unable to discipline as they travel as peasants in a caravan. When the lad turns sixteen he is selected as an heir to white-eyed Lord Bahl of the powerful realm of Farlan. Like his mentor and all white-eyed, Isak can be brutally nasty and impatient yet also inspiring all within nanoseconds. The God of Storms presents Isak with the armour and sword of a legendary elven king who was the last monarch of all the land a prophesy that insists the wearer will be a great ruler. Meanwhile vampires are roaming the land attacking humans and the elves want their armour back. War is imminent, but Isak feels unworthy to lead the human counter attack especially against the vicious elven horde.-------------- Book one of the Twilight Reign is an exciting fantasy thriller with the similar problems that most opening acts of a genre saga struggle with: introducing the cast and their pecular traits. In this case, the uniquenss of the wagonbrat suddenly transported into a world of affluence is deftly handled as the reader sees what Isak observes: bewilderment, confusion and strangeness like a fish out of the sea. Building from that premise, Tom Lloyd provides a deep first tale as THE STORMCALLER introduces fans to a unique refreshing world through a stunned teen who goes from unwanted to wanted in a blink.-------------- Harriet Klausner
