Sword in the Storm is a great read. Written in a style that hooks you and keeps you wanting more- page after page. This is my first Gemmel book and I am impressed. This one in particular touches on the adventures of a young boy, his desire to overcome his fathers' tainted reputation; it is about honor, misunderstanding and retribution. But most of all, Sword in the Storm is a book about consequences. At every turn of a page, a new character is introduced, and each is unique, complex and enthralling. I highly recommend this first book of the Rigante Series.

I read the prologue and had a huge let down. I forced myself to finish it thinking that the book would become better since I accidentally purchased the fourth in the series. It lacked real substance, reminded me of other books read.

This book is interesting the whole way threw.It was the first great fantasy book i had ever read and still is. Connavar is almost the perfect figure. It keeps you up all night long!

Characters well developed and are brought to life through experiences and emotions. Battle sequences and warfare are very vivid and realistic. Use of possible historical and geographic context makes the story line grounded in a believable human past and settings. Easy to become immersed in story and characters. The mystical aspects are not outlandish or overwhelming thus the story maintains a human feel though several characters do seem larger then life.

Wow! I thought this book was great...for the first ten pages. Then, BAM! the dialogue pops in to existance. And I'm not saying that the dialogue was terrible, but I think George Lucas did a better job in Episode 1 +2. For those of you who really could care less about dialogue quality, go ahead and read it, it is a fairly interesting story. Maybe I'm just overly critical, since the other 4 reader reviews have been 5 stars....

Be careful, this one will draw you fully into the story. In my 30+ years of reading Science Fiction/Adult Fantasy, rarely have I read a story that not only is action packed but makes the characters real and life like. I had to finish this one in one setting. It is hard to find a place to stop and put the book down even for a short time.

This book is a must-read for those who love a well-written and thought out book with action and adventure cleverly intertwined into an easily read format. I cannot wait for the next book in the series. This is a surprisingly fast and easy read -- you will not be able to put it down. Gemmell succeeds brilliantly with this book.

Amazing story teller. Wow! Since I am a slow reader, I lost a few nights sleep to read it. The darn book was just too exciting, fun and inspiring to walk away from.
