Who wants to read a military sci-fi novel about a World War II navy ship being sent into another dimension? No? That is definitely a good thing. Trust us on this one.
Into the Storm is a odd book. The first few chapters are extremely slow but anyone who loves military novels would love that part. For everyone else, you get a slow war battles that are not exciting or fun. Then, because this is a sci-fi book, the whole ship gets whisked away to another dimension where humans never evolved. There are two factions or “people” that are fighting and our crew gets caught in between.
When they first teleport, there is a large whale sized crocodile that tries to eat them. That was really cool. If this had been just an adventure, with no weird monkey-people, then this might have been a better book. Just this crew vs. the wild in a tough trip home.
This was a snoozer that if you see it on a bookshelf at the library, put it back, or give it to that weird uncle you have. You know how he loves his “stories.”
There is nothing new I have to give this about this book. I can see how some people liked it but it is 100% not for me!!!
All I can say was that this book was stupid boring. I DNF’d around 30% because I just stopped caring. The premise actually somewhat appeals to me (of course, or I wouldn’t have read it in the first place) but the characterizations were so lacking that I could not even force myself to have interest in the story. The book switched POV between a few characters but they were all so boring that I couldn’t really tell the difference between them. Even through a few couple cool concepts, like enormous fish and odd humanoid species at war, this lack of good characters dragged the story down too much.
