about

Shaleis the lowest of the low-an outcast from a poor village in the heart of the desert. In the desert water is life, and currency, and Shale has none. But he has a secret. It's the one thing that keeps him alive and may save all the cities of the Quartern in the days to come. If it doesn't get him killed first...

Terelleis a slave fleeing a life as a courtesan. She finds shelter in the home of an elderly painter but as she learns the strange and powerful secrets of his art she fears she may have traded a life of servitude for something far more perilous...

The Stormlordis dying in his tower and there is no one, by accident or design, to take his place. He brings the rain from the distant seas to his people. Without a Stormlord, the cities of the Quartern will wither and die.

Their civilization is at the brink of disaster. If Shale and Terelle can find a way to save themselves, they may just save them all. Water is life and the wells are running dry...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Thrilling Start to the Series The Last Stormlord by Glenda Larke is a great book; with an enthralling story line that drags you in and leaves you thirsting for more. Following the tale of Shale, Terelle and the desert Quartern as they struggle on the brink of destruction. The pacing, flow and dialogue could have been a bit better, and at times the story seems too wordy. The Last Stormlord could have easily been 50-100 pages shorter. However, with an action-packed plot it rarely gets boring or extraneous. With a touch of the dialogue seeming cliche,a few of the major revelations don't have quite the impact they should, however there was some fantastic world-building, highlighted with magic which helped to enrich the plot. This is a book which held a lot of potential, however it should be seen mainly as a lead-up to the sequel, Stormlord Rising, as most of The Last Stormlord concentrated on the world-building aspects and with no real conclusion; it in itself was mainly a cliffhanger. It was an enjoyable read, I wouldn't say it was great -- but in no way was this a bad book. I do recommend picking up Stormlord Rising, and Stormlord Exile, the cliffhangers and world building do create fantastic stories in the sequels, once you get past them in this novel. This is a great series, and it does pull through in the other books of the trilogy. [Originally posted on The ArchedDoorway]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I loved this book. I was just in chapters one day and I picked this up and I was like wow I have to get my hands on this book. The problem was that I ran out of money, so I went to the library and I was in luck they had the book. I took it out and read it with in the first week. You want something to read that is awesome then read this, because it had me turning the pages until the end.
