An interesting Sci/Fi novel that will take the reader to another world full of danger and mythical creatures.

Eric Slade is a retired Navy SEAL that now works in remote parts of the world making documentaries. When he is hired by Dr. Anna Fayne for a new mission, he thinks it will be just another day at the office for him. When the two, along with the rest of their team, are caught up in a mysterious storm and sent through a rift in space/time, they end up stranded in a strange lost world.  Eventually they are the only two still alive and are desperate to survive and find a way back home from the savage land they now find themselves in.

This book is one I thought I would really like. I enjoy fantasy novels and this one sounded very interesting.  Unfortunately for me, Eye of the Storm went farther to the sci/fi aspect than fantasy for my liking.  I believe that lovers of science fiction will thoroughly enjoy this book though.  The story was good, but when getting into the science fiction and mythical terminology I found myself lost more often than not trying to figure out how to say something or what it was even talking about.  I think a glossary at the front might help readers as a reference for some of the harder words and what they refer to.  There is a little bit of everything in the story: action, romance, adventure, danger and science beyond our world.  Some of the characters were more relatable than others, I think that was the way the scenes were set up more than everything.  There was a lot of potential here but it fell flat for me.  I do recommend this to readers that love science fiction novels with a little bit of fantasy and romance sprinkled in the mix.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
