I just posted my review of Darkstorm by the talented M.L. Spencer:
Amazingly realistic descriptions. Spencer painted a vibrant picture. Inspired storytelling. Right from the start, we’re off to the races, and the story never lets you slow down. I love the gray. The good guys aren’t all that good or perfect, and the bad guys motivation almost makes you want to side with them. Almost. This deserves a full 5 stars! The world-building in this story is second to none. The character description is fantastic. They jump right off the page. Bought it on a whim, and I’m so glad I did. M.L. Spencer created a science fantasy marvel! Building a world can be difficult, but Spencer pulled it off here. Creating a world that isn’t our own takes time, and this is a great example of it done right. Spoiler Alert: although Quin might seem a little rough around the edges at first, I really grew to love his character. He reminded me of Gal on the hit TV series Galavant. The character development in this story was truly brilliant. I’ve picked up the next story in the Rhenwars Saga, and can’t wait to find out what happens next!

Here’s the Blurb:
Braden and Quin Reis share a tragic past, but it’s now up to them to save the future. When a secret conspiracy resorts to harnessing the powers of the Netherworld to save their legacy, Braden and Quin are the only mages capable of stopping them. But these two would-be heroes are compromised, harboring terrible secrets.
Can Braden and Quin put aside their differences long enough to prevent the unsealing of the Well of Tears? Or will they relent and join the conspiracy?
Darkstorm is the prequel to the epic grimdark fantasy series The Rhenwars Saga. If you like morally gray antiheroes, page-turning action, and mind-boggling plot twists, then you’ll love Spencer’s award-winning series.
