The Last Storm

We rated this book:


Bestselling author Tim Lebbon (The Silence and Coldbrook) returns with a post-apocalyptic novel set in our near future. Global warming has become as big of a problem as we feared and large swathes of the North American continent have turned to desert and been rendered all but uninhabitable. But there is hope. There are the very few who possess a unique ability to bring rain, but at an extreme cost, and it is a power that cannot always be controlled.

Ash has that ability, inherited from her father, and looks to improve the lives of those she can. But her father, Jesse, along with Ash’s mother, Karina, believe she cannot control her ability and so runs the risk of bringing a new horror to this world. So they go in search of Ash, who looks to try to change this harsh world and make it better.

Lebbon has created a compelling plot and some complex and fascinating characters, set within the backdrop of this near inhospitable world. The Last Storm takes the reader on a most unique journey, forcing them to visit places they never expected, whether they want to or not.
