It built up and up and up, only to… stop in the middle of the action. Oh well, I guess I have to hurry and get Shadow in the Deep now so I can continue the story!

Bringer of Storms starts about seventeen years from where Beyond the Summerland ended. We have all the same much-loved characters (excluding Rulalin of course!!), but many of them are filled with bitterness over the tragic event that happened in the end of Book 1. An interesting story, fascinating new things coming about… but like I sa

Bringer Of Storms is book two in a massive 5 book epic entitled The Binding Of The Blade by L. B. Graham. If you enjoy huge fantasy epics with definite Christian values, monsters, battles, tragedy and some romance, look no further than this series.

"A staggering accomplishment. The vibrancy and scope of L.B. Graham’s world-building deserves highest praise. Add in well-rounded and memorable characters, thematic richness, and high adventure, and you have an unbeatable formula for success. Ranks rig

I have to stop comparing every fantasy epic I read to the Lord of the Rings. None of them even compare, and the Binding of the Blade series, at least so far, is no exception. L.B. Graham isn't a great writer. He puts in more romance than is necessary, his characters' dialogue is too casual and modern for a fantasy epic, and he often succumbs to the ever-present temptation to copy LOTR. That being said, Bringer of Storms has many good points. The story is exciting and sometimes creative, and it's ...more

So I must say that this series in my opinion gets better and better. This book takes place 17 years after the first one, and while the world hasn't stopped, you [the reader] feel as if it doesn't matter, and that what needs to be filled in will be, and it is. I really do think that this is a great fantasy worthy to be included in the greats of that genre. Does it have a certain belief system? Yes, but so did Tolkien and Lewis, so does LeGuin and L'Engle. That doesn't take away from the beauty of ...more

Second in a series my kids are reading.
Provocative character sketch of a reprobate consumed by envy and hate, willing to cross over to "the dark side" because of it. Also a good study of revenge.

The writing style is a bit plodding, though. He doesn't leave anything out, like a good artist knows how to do. It's about twice as long as it has to be.

I've read this series twice and couldn't wait to download. A series I can recommend to anyone who enjoys fantasy.

The second book in this series is just as epic as the first. In fact it's more epic because of the first. Despite the events of this novel being seventeen years later everything that happens is directly related to the culminating event that ended Beyond the Summerland.

In this book the foretold third attempt of Malek is at hand. Poor Benjiah, the son of Joraiem and Wylla, has just been told that he's the Prophesied boy who will save them all.

Recommends it for: LoTR/Narnia/fantasy fans
this is the 2nd book of the series. it happens about 17 years after the 1st book left off and can be read w/o having to read the first book.
I love it very much and it didn't drag.....very good things for a big book:D
I must say, that after a second reading I've noted a few flaws. For one, his writing style is actually a little forced and things don't exactly flow.

I still think the plot line is good, though.

Almost 8 months later I finally finish this book! Why did it take me so long? Well it wasn't till the last 100-150 pages that I really got into this book. But now that it's done I wanna read the next book.
I didn't like this one as much as the first one. But it was really good and the way it was told really led the story on and the book developed the characters a lot more.
Good read. I really liked how the (then thought to be) atrocious ending for the first book continues quite well in this one.
Matt Kelly
A great follow up to the first book in the series, I can't wait to read the next one!
Jarvis "Mclovin"
this book is sooo boring that i didn't even finish it.

Was so disappointed with this book that I couldn't keep reading the series.

This book was as good as the first. I can't wait to read book 3.
What can I say? Even better than the first!
It was very good and imaginative.
