I particularly like Kaneth and Ryka and Kaneth’s friendand all the squabbling rainlords even Laisa and Senya.
There was an error posting your review. At least, not yet Several characters are dealing with the aftermath of risijg. Ryka is a captive of the marauding Reduners, Terelle is traveling to Khromatis against her will, and Jasper — the titular last stormlord — finds himself forced to work together with his nemesis and now de facto ruler Taquar Sardonyx to create much-needed rainstorms for the parched lands of the Risihg.
The characters continue to be interesting and sometimes to behave in unexpected ways. Because for some bizarre reason I still needed to know what happened.
It dealt with a land where water is king, and those with the magic to move it are near godly. I found it a bit difficult to work out exactly where everyone was the map on my Kindle version is minute so I was a bit unsure who was going up the hill and who was going strmlord.
Lists with This Book. I suppose there’s just no pleasing some people.
Half way across the country, she gets a message, asking her to return. Ravard is especially interesting.
She is going through hell, struggling with her emotions, and at times feeling a bit of Stockholm, but never really loses track of herself. Jul 03, Koit rated it it was ok Recommended to Koit by: There’s a good story in here somewhere, a lot of it no overly original, but gripping enough to keep me reading.
Glenda Larke did not hold back on the brutality nor was she afraid to kill off alot of important characters For a second book in a trilogy, Stormlord Rising is really well balanced. I couldn’t wait to get into ‘Stormlord Rising,’ the second book of the trilogy. So why three stars instead of two. Aug 20, Pauline Ross rated it really liked it Shelves: Shale has grown up big time in this book, although still with an adolescent’s peculiar combination of angst and over-confidence, and Terelle is getting there too.
But I have to say that there needs to be a point to it.
Stormlord Rising | Glenda Larke
Over the course of about three chapters, they start to develop feelings for each other, it’s all very rushed and lazily done. For this second book, I liked all the time spent in the “white desert” after certain characters escaped the holocaust of the first book — it was a unique environment. The characters are likewise shallow and meaningless. The story was more tightly woven together and the characters given more depth.

Now, he must decide to work with those who have plotted against him or let thousands of the waterless die. Stormlord Rising was an excellent middle book: There is also a religious overtone to the story where the divergent cultures are completely different in their beliefs. The rainlord who finally had found love and was pregnant in book 1.
Events unfold very slowly, and most of the book is spent traveling. It is what made ‘Dune’ a slog for me, and it had the same affect here.
Return to Book Page. Why do I do it to myself? There was also a lot of repetition.
I do enjoy a novel set in a world which is brought to life like this one. I like knowing that she’s Australian and that the world she creates has some similarities to that desolate continent.
