    One thought on “Roar of the Storm”

    1. *5 stars*ARC kindly received in exchange for a honest review.This second book did not disapoint me at all. Although I rearly like the sequels more than the firts book, this is the exeption. I hope there is going to be a third insallment and I will ansiously wait for it. Great job with this book Adam Burch!!!

    2. The second installment in the Fracture World series did not disappoint me. In this book, we find that Edmond has been wandering the Universe on a spaceship as a doctor for almost a decade. After a series of events, Edmond must confront his past and face his evil enemies or run.Meanwhile a much larger problem looms on the horizon, that will affect all of mankind. I received a Kindle edition of this book from Giveaways in exchange for my honest review.

    3. Fair disclosure: this review is based on having read just 50% of the book, which was more than enough for me to conclude that I wasn’t interested in continuing. I’ve enjoyed some really good science fiction over the years, from Ray Bradbury’s books and the Dune series to “The Martian” and “Wool” more recently. Liking those books doesn’t mean that you’ll like this one. On the plus side there’s non-stop action, with a bar fight, space pirates, and gun fights. Wait a minute - wh [...]

    5. Disclaimer, I received this book through a giveaway. I read this novel immediately after finishing the first book in the series, Song of Edmon. Song of Edmon felt a lot like Ender's Game mixed with some fantasy elements. Roar of the Storm on the other hand reads pretty much like a space opera. The action kicks off immediately with a time jump explained in a few sentences. Edmon has hooked up with a new cast of characters akin to the crew of the Firefly. The pace never lets up with the character [...]

    6. The second half of Adam Burch’s fractured worlds solves a lot of the mystery of how Earth was disconnected from the space that allows quick movement from star to star. Edmon Leontes left the world of Tao a decade before to become a physician on a freighter with a small crew. Their communication’s officer, Ari is being hunted by several groups. The trail to saving her leads to an artificial intelligence with its own space station, to Miral that was the center of Human civilization after the l [...]

    7. One of the best series I have ever read. Deep world and character development, gritty plot lines, eastern mysticism. Read Song of Edmund, Fracture Worlds book 1 first. If you like Darynda Jones, the Faust/Black books, Downside Ghosts, Ilona Andrews, Johannes Cabel . . . be prepared to start reading these books early on a day off, because you will not be able to put then down. Also, the author is a renaissance man.

    8. This second book did not disappoint. Though the sequels are rarely as fantastic as the first, when discovering a new series I really enjoyed it. Love the way he wove this world's tarot cards into the story. I hope there is a third. If there is to be one I'm sure there will be a wait, given this 2nd one was just released. I'll wait. :-)

    9. The story did not flow in a manner that grabbed my interest or gave depths to the characters. The visitation to different worlds, various battles, seemed to be short stand-alone stories rather than a flowing book leading up to a climax.

    10. A poor ending to a rich beginningThe title says it all, the story began with such promise and fell flat. I was not invested in the characters, the story was at times rushed and not thought out.

    11. As with the first, could not put it down. Parts of it reminded me of an 80's sitcom dialogue and the reference to old earth got tiresome. Overall though, continued good character development and story line.

    12. Emotion invoking!The first book was excellentough very hard emotionally heart wrenching. This wrapped the story up and while was still hear and thought provoking, the emotions were easier to handle. Love all of the characters and excellent world building.

    13. This book is for the sci-fi fan. I liked this book with its rag-tag team. Sci-fi at its best. You have a little bit of everything in this book. Join the team of the Bentley on an adventure of a life time .

    14. Roar of the StormLooking forward to the continuation of the story of Edmon Leontes. All of the characters in this book are unique and interesting in their own right.

    15. Power through the beginningIs a pretty good story, just part through the beginning, the first 10% of the book called to engage me, however the rest is pretty good.

    16. Exquisite Character DevelopmentI would like to have Edmon Leontes return and develop further supported by his loyal crew. Ah, what adventures await!

    17. Excellent. Purely excellent. I’m thoroughly impressed. This book and it’s prequel are among the finest I’ve read in a lot no time. Definitely among the finest I’ve NEW books books I’ve read. It’s rare that I’m treated to such an impressive yet fluid use of language and vocabulary. That along with the emotional intensity of the characters and the rhythm of the story make this and the prequel the best I’ve read all year.
