Kurzbeschreibung

Bonus! Now contains book two, Law of the Wolf!

After coming home from a stint in Afghanistan, veteran Ross Brigham learns that his father has passed away. Dearly departed Dad was a famous fantasy novelist, and the 300 fans that show up for the funeral demand that Ross finish E. R. Brigham's long-running magnum opus.

Ross and two of the author's devotees investigate his untimely death and discover that he might have been murdered...and the time-bending gunslingers of Dad's steampunk novels might be real.

As they try to acclimate to the arid deserts of the author's fantasy world, the three damaged heroes become pawns in a war for humanity's survival. The Muses have grown tired of immortality and now incite atrocities on Earth, trying to lure down a leviathan from the stars.

Can Ross and his new friends stop the scheming satyrs before both worlds are eaten?

Inspired by such old-school fantasy classics as Stephen King's The Dark Tower, C. S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia, and Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Creative Masterpiece 4. März 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
A action packed tale from start to finish, S.A. Hunt's "The Whirlwind in the Thorn Tree" is a well written masterpiece of magnificent description. He has created a world of fantastical creatures and people, complete with an original creation story, unique customs, and religion. His characters are believable and witty, mixing a taste of modern charm with the old school, slow paced and rugged world his characters travel to. They undergo a wonderful journey, discovering who they truly are and their purpose in the fate of many others. This book is an epic adventure of unexpected twists and turns that propel the reader onward, and continue through the last chapter. It's not simply enough to finish reading. This reader desires to know what will happen next! Bravo Mr Hunt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen As a long time fan of the Dark Tower series 11. März 2013
Von clchauvin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I really wanted to dislike this book.

Truly.

I plan to come back and complete my review when I've completed the book but I will tell you this; I have really enjoyed this book so far. It is terribly difficult to put down. I'm sitting at work anxious to get home so that I can read some more.

When I first read the synopsis, it seemed like an attempt by some unknown author to ride on the coat-tails of such a beloved series... I actually thought it to be quite offensive. I actually got the book for my Kindle to prove myself right!

I've, thus far, only proved myself wrong.

This book is extremely well written. The story is easy to follow, very original, and difficult to predict. Being difficult to predict is a very good thing.

I truly hope that this is not the last that we see from S. A. Hunt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent pacing, exciting world 25. Februar 2013
Von Kelketek Rritaa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The Whirlwind in the Thorn Tree conveys a very likable character in its protagonist Ross, a war veteran who comes home to find his life has fallen apart while he was overseas.

On top of everything else, his father has passed, and an mob of fans of his book series seem intent on getting him to finish the final book. Ross reluctantly agrees, and goes to dig up his father's old notes when he finds himself following a trail to another world.

The novel's pacing is pristine, and S. A. Hunt never leaves you enough time to get bored through the whole text. Each of the characters is especially likable, and has good depth. It's quite easy to find yourself rooting for them and sympathizing with their plights.

The novel recognizes and pays some tribute to its influences as well, but in subtle ways that make you laugh. In fact, I found myself chuckling several times through the book, as Mr. Hunt sprinkled several bits of witty banter and humorous circumstances throughout the novel to give contrast to the more serious events.

The world has a good originality to it, and both indulges in the best of the fantasy genre while poking fun at some of its more self-important edges. The only complaint I have is that it ended too early-- but it hasn't really. This book is the first part of a trilogy, so more story is on the way. I look forward to continuing along with the adventures of Ross, Sawyer, and Noreen.

The book satisfies a well developed taste palate and does not disappoint.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An immersing experience in another world 9. Mai 2013
Von W. M. Beck, Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Prepare yourself to enter a new world. A world that is at once both wholly familiar and completely alien. In his book, "The Whirlwind in the Thorn Tree," S.A. Hunt pulls you into a reality that is so well fleshed out, it would seem as if it had been observed by him instead of imagined.

When his father dies suddenly, Sidney Ross Brigham is asked to carry on the man's legacy, a long time running series of fantasy novels. He reluctantly agrees, and from that moment on, what he thought to be reality begins unraveling. Before long, he's thrust into a world beyond his wildest dreams, and despite being so utterly foreign to him, it also feels strangely like home. It is here that his true identity, his true destiny, are to be found.

All throughout is a strong supporting cast of characters that are interesting in their own right, and contribute their unique personalities to the story. Hunt takes great care to keep each one of them an individual, and the different perspectives and themes they interject into the plot help to keep everything fresh.

Where this book truly shines though is the massive amount of detail and thought that have gone into the creation of a completely new world. The pages are full of songs, customs, food, geography and race after race of "people" that are so engrossing you feel as if you are reading a National Geographic about another dimension.

The only real criticism I can give is the amount of figurative language used. There are a few times when the metaphor and simile become a little distracting, and take away from the experience of reading, but all and all, the plot and setting are so engrossing that you can't put it down.

So for anyone who has ever gazed out the window, or looked up into the starry sky and said, "There must be something more out there," this is a book that is sure to send your spirit soaring over untold vistas and great expanses of fantastical imagining.

2.0 von 5 Sternen What to say....? 8. Mai 2013
Von b_williamson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I found this book on a random Goodreads thread after doing a search for books "similar" to the Dark Tower series. Sounded reasonably interesting, so I thought I'd give it a shot.

First of all, a certain amount of respect is due the author for completing a work of "art" and putting out there, come what may.

Also, it is a fairly interesting idea for a story. That part I did enjoy very much.

The one thing that really (really) bothered me throughout the book was the similes and metaphors. There were way too many, in my opinion, and most of them were borderline ridiculous and/or made no sense, especially in the context they were used. Not knowing the author's intent, I can't say whether he thought they added "flourish" or if he wasn't confident that his descriptions weren't sufficient for the reader, maybe something else entirely. Regardless, many times I felt like he was building a good picture of a scene, or setting a good mood...only to have it completely ruined by an off-the-wall, unnecessary simile tacked on to the end. For me, it actually made finishing the book a struggle because it felt like that got in the way of just telling the story.

There were a few other minor areas that might benefit from some polishing, but the simile/metaphor issue was the big one.

This could be an enjoyable series, if continued. I just hope the author scales back (or drops completely) the glaring "flourish" and just tells his story.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great read! 18. Februar 2014
Von The Book Junkie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
If you are a lover of fantasy books such as the Dark Tower series by Stephen King or The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, where other worlds are discovered and mysteries are abundant, than this is a book you will easily fall into, entering the fantasy with the characters and joining them on their adventure.

This book even mentions authors King and Lewis and comments on their stories, sometimes with a humorous edge. The main character, Ross, is given the overwhelming job of finishing his father's book series, a series that has a huge following, all looking to him for closure. He isn't sure how he feels about this project, especially since his relationship with his father was less than perfect and he hasn't even read the books! Noreen and Sawyer are dedicated fans who join him early on in the story and are thrown into the other world with him. The three form a quick friendship.
There are a lot of characters in this story and I found myself having to go back a few times to review who was who but it was worth the time. I think that this is common in this type of fantasy and I'm just not used to it. The story, however, was immensely interesting once I got a handle on the names and style of language used. I loved the idea of the world of Ross's father's books being a real place. What better way for him to finish the series than to live it!
I think what I liked most was the originality of the story. Sure, there are a lot of books that have characters traveling to another world or dimension but I felt that this one stood out. It was perfectly paced and clever, and it even made me laugh at times. The details in the story were so well phrased that they allowed me to really picture what was happening and see both the humans and non humans to a point where I felt I knew them and could feel their highs and lows. It amazes me how authors can create such an immense fantasy realm with unique characters and make it seem so real, as if it really exists. The amount of work and talent that go into such a creation are admirable. The pages kept turning and I was consistently impressed with the fact that I couldn't predict how it would end. This author is truly gifted. I look forward to the next book!
