Publisher's Summary

Two years have passed since the war. The Primate is dead, the machines at Stonewater have been destroyed, yet without essence the Empire's economy has collapsed. Trade is at a standstill, famine sets in, and, with no food and no essence, the people begin to riot.

In the midst of the growing unrest, Miro struggles to balance his life with Amber against his resolve to keep threats to the Empire at bay. His sister Ella helps to build the machinery the Empire desperately needs, but she longs to find Killian and believes his powers will be needed in the conflict to come.

News of a wedding brings a much - needed ray of hope to the weary people. But as citizens and leaders gather from afar for the festivities, an evil threat shatters the fragile peace: one of the Evermen has returned. And he will not rest until he has completely destroyed the humans he despises.

    "Probably the best so far"

    Path of the Storm is the best of the trilogy so far, in my opinion. So often with trilogies the books get worse as the series progresses, but Maxwell seems hellbent on breaking that rule.

    The aftermath of the war and realisation that one of the feared Evermen has returned adds a new dimension to the plot. Ella's insistence, even when others beg against it, to find a way to bring Killian back sees her gaining help from a source that, ordinarily would be seen as unthinkable.

    In my last review I stated how Maxwell expanded his world, showing new lands and people. This time he's done it again, but on a far grander scale. The exploration into both the past and the present lands of his world make this book as enthralling as the plotline he has drummed up with the returning Everman.

    All in all, this is a solid book and one that should not be missed.

    "best in series so far"

    I did get a bit 'urgh, don't know if I can be bothered anymore' during book 2, but persevered and am so glad I did, book 3 was gripping, really looking forward to book 4!

    "Overall okay"

    These books have several good elements in them, such as, the world building, the interesting magic system and the individual character stories. But, there's so much battle and struggle struggle that it gets bogged down and a bit tedious, at times. The situation with Amber is kind of ridiculous. She's smart and capable, but she's a sorceress and she never has any of her sorceress'a gear with her, so she's really just a normal person. It's kind of weird. What's the point of her even being a sorceress? At least she is a good character, intelligent and capable. Overall, these books are okay. I'm always curious where the story is going, even though sometimes it's obvious. It would be nice if they were a little faster paced.

    "Characters devolving"
    Would you try another book from James Maxwell and/or Simon Vance?

    I enjoy Simon Vance and I would definitely listen to another performance.


    What could James Maxwell have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The main characters were maturing and gaining depth during the couse of the first two books of the series. In this book they reached positions of responsibiliy, but instead of well thought out challenges and solutions Mr. Maxwell placed Miro and Ella in a series of forced action sequences where they continued to make the same type of mistakes over and over again. In the end I'm no longer interested in finishing the series.

    "Excellent story with high hopes for the final installment!"

    This was an excellent story once again! James Maxwell is an wonderful writer and Simon Vance brings the story to life. I am looking forward to the final book in this saga to learn how it all ends but I go there with trepidation because I now the story will end and I have already read everything else these two story tellers have done together.

    "Excellent 3rd book"

    A great third book to the series. The writing is engaging, although a little predictable - as the first two were. Still a good story though, I enjoyed it.

    "Darker than books 1 & 2"

    While the plotline was still good, Book 3 was much darker then it's predecessors. A lot more torture and gore...

    "this is fast food fiction"

    the story was good, but the author has a habit of telling the reader about everything over and over, every time characters are reunited, they recap everything you just read.

    it is an easy entertaining read
