In Storm Rising, mysterious mage-storms are wreaking havoc on Valdemar, Karse, and all the kingdoms of the West, plaguing these lands not only with disastrous earthquakes, monsoons, and ice storms, but also with venomous magical constructs - terrifying creatures out of nightmare. Both Valdemar's Heralds and Karse's Sunpriests struggle to marshal their combined magical resources to protect their realms from these devastating, spell-fueled onslaughts. But as the situation becomes bleaker and bleaker, the still fragile alliance between these long-hostile lands begins to fray. And unless Valdemar and Karse can locate and destroy the creator of the storms, they may see their entire world demolished in a final magical holocaust.… (mehr)

I like the books Mercedes Lackey writes, she is good at creating a believable world and people to populate it. While her writing is not the strongest I do find it engaging ang and enjoyable. I like a series I can live inside of and her books are ones that have characters I feel invested in and a world I believe could exist. ( )

The mage storms are sweeping over the alliance and the surrounding countries and the artificers of Valdemar have deduced that things are going to get really serious.

Meanwhile the Imperial commander Arch Duke Tremane has to make a decision; stay loyal to am Empire that appears to have abandoned him or ensure the safety of his troops, and not so incidently, the civilians of Hardorn?

Meanwhile, the alliance works out that a counterstrike set off at one of the focus points would cancel outt he effects of the storms but with one of the focal point under a see-sized lake, only the near mystical Mage of Silence's tower was available but under the control of the Shin'a'an who allowed no mages anywhere near the remnants of his tower.

Karal, the young Karsite priest remains a pivotal character, if even more annoyingly reasonable and nice, though his girl friend Natoli may be even more irritating... ( )

Not a bad middle book; but the author's handling of Tremayne (ensuring his eventual death in any real world, although perhaps Lackey didn't understand this) bothered me. ( )

Storm Rising is a strong middle volume to the series. Other than the "Firesong goes slowly mad" plotline - which, while sort of interesting in that an established character becomes an unreliable narrator over the course of a handful of POVs, is just too unsubtle and way too whiny to really appeal - the characters remain delightful, and while there's no real plot arc outside of the larger crisis (and the ending feels totally tacked-on) it's exactly the sort of collection of escapades that I like Valdemar for.

Two plot threads in particular are worth mention. One, Tremane's kingdom-building, I adore for the same reasons I like the crafting scenes in the Recluce series and video games like SimCity. That careful, logical assessment of resources and implementation of solutions is just so soothing. I may be weird, though, and normal people might find it boring.

The other, Karal's attempt to be an ambassador from his people after the death of his superior, is primarily interesting because he fails. He tries really hard, has quite a bit of support (and a bunch of opposition) and just can't make it work, and the big boss has to step in and take over. That's really atypical of fantasy novels, but much, much more realistic than the more usual "hero comes up with elaborate plan and makes everyone love him." ( )
