Beyond the Tempest Gate by Jeff Suwak

The chapters flow well – current storyline / backstory / current storyline etc and there really is so much here that I really found it hard to believe it was only a novella (76 pages but worth every penny/cent/euro).
The world on both sides of The Gate is really well drawn as is the actual Gate itself and shows good skills for world building which promises lots for this author, as does the way he adds little twists to the characters and their motivations.
Some of the scenes later on in the story reminded me, in a way, of the films of the late Ray Harryhausen – and I do believe this story would benefit from being filmed by a quality effects studio.
So, all in all, a wonderfully told tale that will leave you wanting more from Mr.Suwak – I know I will be eagerly waiting for more from this promising young author.
