Publisher's Summary

In the middle of the Indian Ocean, a NUMA research vessel is taking water samples at sunset when a crew member spots a sheen of black oil ahead of them. But it is not oil. Like a horde of army ants, a swarm of black particles suddenly attacks the ship, killing everyone aboard, while the ship itself goes up in flames.

A few hours later, Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala are on their way to the Indian Ocean. What they will find there on the smoldering hulk of the ship will eventually lead them to the discovery of the most audacious scheme they have ever known: a plan to permanently alter the weather on a global scale. It will kill millions... and it has already begun.

Filled with the boundless invention unique to Clive Cussler, this is one of the most thrilling novels yet from the grand master of adventure.

    "An action packed Curt Austin book"

    I have found that most of the Austin books are a slower read than the Oregon Files and some other of CC's books. Don't get me wrong, I love them all and Clive Cussler is one of my very favorite authors. I think this is the most action packed Curt Austin book he has written. It is definitely worth a credit :) Scott Brick does his usual excellent job as narrator.You either love or hate his style. Personally I think he brings books to life.

    Story
    "Suspenseful as You Would Expect from Cussler"
    If you could sum up The Storm in three words, what would they be?

    suspense, intrigue, wit


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Scott Brick is an excellent narrator. You think you're hearing different people's voices. He manages to keep the excitement and suspense alive.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Joe Zavala and the whole Aswan dam incident.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The description of the things creating the storm were compelling. I enjoyed the inclusion of the Pain Maker and thought that was quite intriguing.


    Any additional comments?

    an enjoyable read

    "Great As Usual"
    If you could sum up The Storm in three words, what would they be?

    Grabs and Holds


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Storm?

    Too many memorable moments to allow me to single out just one!!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the scene in the well where our heroes use an old tire in a really clever way.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I love these CC books. They never disappoint. I hold my breath, breathe a sigh of relief, then hold my breath again. Scott Brick makes the scenes and the characters come alive. I listen to these books in preference to watching movies.


    Any additional comments?

    So glad these new books become available at Audible. I know I'll not be disappointed any time I use a credit for a CC book. Great suspense, super action, and in general: Delicious "Brain Candy"

    "Another great NUMA novel!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Storm the most enjoyable?

    First off - The Narrator! They don't get any better than Scott Brick. He is often the reason I will choose a certain title - He can bring the story 'ALIVE".


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Great plot and a new one for sure - Evil technology at it's best being pursued by Yemini Prince!


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Always the best!



    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Fascinating! After driving home I sat in the car in my Garage to complete a chapter.


    Any additional comments?

    Get it - You won't be sorry if you enjoy Clive and Fiction!

    I spend about four hours per day on the road. Audio books make my commute go by much faster and make it somewhat enjoyable.

    "Wish I'd Skipped It!"
    What disappointed you about The Storm?

    Did not care for the story, and found the dialog trite and similar to a C-rated movie script!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Clive Cussler and Graham Brown again?

    Will not choose this author again.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not to my thinking. It was pretty much a waste of time. Did I learn anything? No. Did I experience anything new? No.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though I like Sci-Fi this book was not my cup of tea.

    "Another Good Cussler Novel"
    What made the experience of listening to The Storm the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoy the talents of Scott Brick as he reads the book and brings the characters to life.


    What other book might you compare The Storm to and why?

    The other Cussler "NUMA Files" novels are similar to this one


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His talents for giving each character their own personality and voice, really helps the listener follow the story and understand what's going on.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "A compelling read....as good as you would expect"

    Another compelling story line which draws the reader onto the expected world of good v bad but prompts some thinking about the potential for this plot being a real threat in our world. The characters are believable and well defined and it is very hard to put down!!

    Another winner Mr Cussler.

    "another cracking read from this exciting author."

    I've read 15 books by Clive Cussler and they've all been good. This one is a great story and has a place on anyones list. There is no gratuitous sex as in a lot of stories, characters that are believable and you find yourself rooting for the good guys and hating the bad ones. Scott brick narrates with feeling, humour and keeps up a pace that enthralls the listener drawing you into the plot. For a story that takes the reader on a whirlwind tour of the worlds oceans and deserts chasing bad guys and incredible machines, this one is right up with the best.
