Ours is the Storm is the first novel from D. Thouson Palmer. While only having made it through the first 150 pages of the first Games of Thrones book before I cast it aside, dare I say Ours is the Storm is "Game-of-Thrones-esque," but better for a person who prefers faster paced, focused books? Perhaps I'm just looking for a trendy phrase to describe a really great fantasy novel with a political edge? I was going to use the word "efficient" to describe the book but that implies the book is cold and simply a means to an end. I believe "purposeful" more accurately describes this labor of love - it's fast-paced while still providing thorough detail where warranted. As a reader, you are not assaulted by long, overly descriptive, wordy passages (which I often end up just skimming) and you are not introduced to characters only to never see them appear again. The character development is strong and throughout the story there's a constant undertone of the conflict between what a person believes they should be, what a person actually is, and what a person could be -- something I expect a lot of people struggle with at some point in their life. Ours is the Storm is an enjoyable read which leaves the reader satisfied...but ready for a snack in the near future. More history, further exploration of foreign lands and more characters to read about please! The ending provides a sense of closure but not a "finale." I sense (read: hope) there is more to come…
