Echoes of the Storm is a work of fiction in the science fiction, space opera, and LGBTQ+ sub-genres, and was penned by author Charlene Newcomb. Written for more mature audiences, the work does contain some moderate sexual content and mild adventure style violence. Our central protagonist is Jack Gamble, betrayed and left isolated as he tries to rally together the tattered remains of a rebellion and save his homeworld. What follows is a gripping adventure tale that also has romantic intrigues and a fulfilling story of a man against impossible odds, trying to fight for justice against an empire that holds its people in chains.
Author Charlene Newcomb has crafted a really excellent novel that shows us Jack’s power and charm as he travels through space on his mission. One of the things which I found particularly enjoyable about this novel was the cast of different characters who come and go on his travels, giving the story that exciting space opera feel as different episodes feed into the central plot. This gives us a chance to really enjoy each character and see Jack develop emotionally through his interactions, which culminate in a fully-fledged hero ready to take on the empire. The action scenes were dynamically written and I also really enjoyed the dialogue, which I think enhances the mood of the narrative and develops the exposition of the plot very well. Overall, I would certainly recommend Echoes of the Storm to fans of science fiction looking for a well-rounded read that offers a lot of entertainment value.
