Through the Raging Storm by Ben Kilgore is the story of an ordinary small town that makes an extraordinary discovery. One stormy night, Joe Garner and his group of friends see something strange fall out of the sky. Curiosity gets the better of them, so they venture out to find something that may or may not be from another world. Before long, Joe and his friends realize some shady characters have also come to town, looking for the same object. With good intentions, the guys do their best to keep the object hidden, but trouble is around every corner. Soon, Joe finds that he and his buddies are in way over their heads. As the simple lives of these ordinary people become overly complicated, many of them are forced to take drastic measures.
Through the Raging Storm is more about the people than their extraordinary find. This book excels in exploring the lives of a full cast of colorful characters as they grapple with what has happened in their once-sleepy village. Author Ben Kilgore has a knack for making each character unique and interesting. Much of the fun here comes from watching these simple townsfolk as they clash with big-city thugs and sophisticated technology. However, there is a real element of science fiction that is both interesting and original. Readers who enjoy an exploration of the inner workings of a small town, and how they react when something really bizarre happens, will get a kick out of Through the Raging Storm. It's a fun, engaging story that I highly recommend.
