Review Text A suspenseful masterpiece. Review quote Superb. Her debut series, the Black Magician trilogy, made her an international success, and all three volumes of her Age of the Five trilogy were Sunday Times bestsellers.
They travel via Noah's "Beast," a primitive steam powered car.
When Delilah learns of the reason they have travelled there to aid the design of self-propelled ships, she wishes to join the Edori expedition to Ysral. Noah, who is falling in love with her, declares that she cannot go and that he will go in her stead. Alleluia as Archangel, must also find her angelico. Jovah only refers to him as "The son of Jeremiah" and much of her time is devoted to searching for him, and consulting the oracles. The oracle of Mount Sinai has recently died leaving no third oracle, and in her attempts to better understand Jovah, Alleluia takes several books and begins learning the old language used at the interfaces.
She learns through the interface that Jovah is in need of help, and that is also the son of Jeremiah who could help Jovah. As these events take place, the weather is beginning to threaten their very way of life, and Alleluia finds references in the old texts and Edori songs that the weather is returning to how it originally was when the first colonists arrive.
In a particularly harsh storm, Alleluia is also cast to the ground and uses that event to great effect to appease the other political powers. She manages to convince them that it is not the Angels causing the storms in purpose, but that they may all be in genuine danger.
Alleluia begins the theorize that similar to the music machines some sort of device that aids Jovah to hear the angels may begin failing and once again locates Caleb. This does make both characters a little harder to sympathise with during the book's second act, when it feels like they're simultaneously working at cross purposes to the good guys and sinking further into the tempting darknesses that threaten to swallow them whole.
What also makes it a bit hard to stay invested in the book at times is the lack of comprehensive character fleshing out of the other players, particularly in terms of the Raen and some of the supporting characters. Despite being touted as the major threat to the worlds throughout the book, the Raen rarely appears as threatening or evil; that's probably the point, especially given some late-in-the-game reveals about his motivations, but it robs most of the scenes with the rebels of their emotional weight whenever they're making big speeches or preparing for the final battle against the Raen.
Perhaps there's a kind of tragedy in that, knowing that the rebels maybe aren't really going after the worlds' equivalent of Sauron, but if there is it's hard to isolate from the lack of substantiality in the Raen's characterisation.
But then the ending happens, and a couple of important things are revealed, and we're left with a very tantalising sequel hook or two. Well-played, Canavan.
I'm intrigued for what comes next. The exposition can get overwhelming at times, especially in terms of dialogue; characters frequently speak in a circumlocutory fashion where only a sentence or two could've done.
I get that there's a lot to cover given how many different worlds we visit over the course of the book, but characters sometimes over-explaining their motivations can get a little tedious.
That's all made up for by Canavan's expert descriptions of settings, as well as the fairly thorough description of Traveller culture that was quite intriguing. Overall, Angel of Storms is a great demonstration of Trudi Canavan's skills as a fantasy writer and worldbuilder.
