Review: The Twisted Tale of Stormy Gale
The Twisted Tale of Stormy Gale, by Christine Bell (aka Chloe Cole)
Genre: YA, Fantasy, Sci-fi, Steampunk, Romance
Published: April 2011
Pages: e-book without pages
This e-book was a quick read; a steampunk story that captures you in the middle of the action, making you curious. Humorous, inventive and romantic, sexy even. A very original plot that deserves to be worked out more in a longer story. I'd buy the full-length book in a heartbeat because there are some interesting angles that could be explored. The time-traveling felt natural, the characters were nice, the past live of the main character was heartbreaking.
It's nice though sometimes, to read a quick story 'inbetween'. Something that leaves you satisfied and happy. Because of its 'shortness' it was to the point, which was fine and necessairy but I wouldn't mind more elaborate sentences and side-plots. This is why I'm giving it a 3-star rating instead of a 4-star rating, it lacked some depth and was sort of hastened/rushed towards the ending. I know this is because there was not enough time/space to develop everything/everyone, but it was a pity.
It deserves more, really. It deserves a full book, read by a huge audience. For now a sequel or prequel will do too ;)
Worth your time though, have a go at it!
Enjoy your day :)
