Thunder Lake by Tina Lynn is an inspiring tale that is beautiful told, with great characters and a plot that readers can’t stop following. In this story, set in Thunder Lake in the land of Gaia, the reader is introduced to a fierce warlord with extraordinary powers, the man known as Warlock, who has everyone under his control. But there is one thing he cannot control — his youngest son, who leaves promising never to return. Bladen has left because his father couldn’t accept his faith. Things do change when the son returns. But he is not returning to his father’s good graces; he brings a lot of trouble with him. It’s for the reader to discover the twists and the dramatic turn of events.

The story is set in the primal age, and readers are introduced to mythical characters, including werewolves, vampires, shifters, elves, and descendants of the gods. Warlock is the son of Merklin, born an elemental like his son, Bladen. The setting is compelling and reflects many elements of Greek mythology. The conflict is dramatic and it is interesting to watch the characters as they wield their elemental powers and as they clash against each other. Thunder Lake is written in fluid and compelling language, and readers can’t help forming vivid images of the setting in their minds. The arc of character development is impeccable and the story moves quickly to crisis point. Tina Lynn has a deft hand when it comes to crafting memorable characters and a gripping plot. Fans of mythology and epic fantasy will love this book.
