Pilgrim of the Storm by Russ Linton is an entertaining and unique fantasy read. The story follows Sidge, a bug-like humanoid, who is an acolyte in a temple for the Storm Dragon, Vasheru. The basic premise is that humanity escaped a big enslavement in the past, and the temple and those who occupy it are attempting to ward off and protect themselves against the same thing happening again. Sidge is a unique protagonist and he really wants to prove himself to others. He ventures outside the temple to learn to channel his powers and embarks on the adventure of his life. New friends, new enemies, and a new love interest all intersect with his quest to save humanity.
I thought Pilgrim of the Storm was an interesting story and the book cover really showcases the story and characters. It's very eye-catching and I think it will appeal to fans of fantasy adventure books. Linton does a good job setting up and describing this new world and introducing readers to a huge cast of characters. Sidge is a resilient, likable, and also flawed protagonist; I liked how he was not all human but rather a humanoid being. I think this added to his character and made his interactions with others and his personal thoughts and reactions more interesting. Because of his non-human race, he had to try harder than most to find his purpose and unleash his powers in order to complete his quest. I would recommend Pilgrim of the Storm by Russ Linton to fans of fantasy, adventure, action and science fiction genres.
