Eye of the Storm is a terrific fantasy from Frank Cavallo. Anthropologist Dr. Anna Fayne and ex-SEAL Eric Slade lead a team on a research mission, but a peculiar storm takes them through a portal to a remote, prehistoric region where they are captured by Neanderthals and sold to Kerr, consultant to a warrior queen, Threya. Tarquin, a powerful dark sorcerer, plans to invade Threya’s kingdom. He needs three special gems to become more dominant and the warrior queen owns one of them. Anna becomes ill and Kerr sends her to Tarquin who can cure her, but his treatment will have life changing effects she did not expect. Eric attempts to adjust to his new surroundings, unaware that he is to be a significant part of Threya’s sacrificial ceremony.
Imagine being caught in the Eye of the Storm; chased by pterosaurs and other creatures that are supposed to be extinct, in a prehistoric setting that has traces of ancient Roman culture and other significant eras. Frank Cavallo’s novel has an intriguing, ongoing sequence of activities I really liked. He is very imaginative and it shows in his writing, which is descriptive and well defined. The characters are unique, both in appearances and traits, and most were definitely ones I would not want to encounter at all. The visuals I got from reading were clear, and the book cover is nicely illustrated and complements the story. Eye of the Storm is a fantasy novel readers will find as entertaining as I did.
