BLOG TOUR: The Coming Storm (The Coming Darkness Book 2) - Greg Mosse


The hotly-anticipated sequel to Sunday Times Thriller of the Year The Coming Darkness sees the return of special agent Alexandre Lamarque.

He may have saved the world from darkness, but he knows his work is not done yet.

There’s still a terrorist threat out there, pulling together the strands of a new and even more destructive conspiracy to bring the world to its knees.

Battling with personal tragedy on one hand, and the intrusion of new-found celebrity on the other, Alex and his allies must re-emerge from self-imposed exile to face the fight of their lives.

From the streets of Paris, the lithium mines of Southern Mali, and the mighty Aswan Dam, they come up against forces whose intentions are as devious as they are malign. Time is against them, and there’s more at stake than ever. Can they survive the coming storm?

What did I think?

I thought Greg Mosse's debut, The Coming Darkness, was fantastic but the sequel, The Coming Storm is breathtaking.  Although you could read The Coming Storm as a standalone, I think you would appreciate it more if you had already read The Coming Darkness.

Everyone wants to meet The Man Who Saved the World, Alexandre Lamarque, but his fame also makes him a very visible target.  The pacing is blisteringly fast as the threats come from all angles and I felt like Robocop as my eyes scanned the pages as fast as I could.

There is so much going on with Alex, Mariam and Amaury after the events of the first book and I absolutely devoured each storyline.  I really enjoyed reading more about Mariam's personal life, although it did break my heart.  I was on the edge of my seat throughout and I certainly had my virtual running shoes on as I raced through the book.

Intelligent, captivating and heart-poundingly thrilling, The Coming Storm is a superb novel in its own right but when read as part of the series it is spectacular.  Although I don't want the series to end when it's barely begun, I will definitely be rereading these books when the series is complete.  Very highly recommended.

I received an ARC to read and review for the blog tour and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
