- Long Synopsis:
- In a land ruled by prophecy and the whims of gods, a young man finds himself at the heart of a war he barely understands, wielding powers he may never be able to control. Isak is a white-eye, born bigger, more charismatic, and more powerful than normal men. But with that power comes an unpredictable temper and an inner rage he cannot always hide. Brought up as a wagon-brat, feared and despised by those around him, he dreams of a place in the army and a chance to live his own life. But when the call comes, it isn't to be a soldier, for the gods have other plans for the intemperate teenager: Isak has been chosen as heir-elect to the brooding Lord Bahl, the white-eye Lord of the Farlan. The white-eyes were created by the gods to bring order out of chaos, for their magnetic charm and formidable strength makes them natural leaders of men. Lord Bahl is typical of the breed: he inspires and oppresses those around him in equal measure. He can be brusque and impatient, a difficult mentor for a boy every bit as volatile as he is. But now is the time for the forging of empires. With mounting envy and malice, the men who would themselves be kings watch Isak, chosen by gods as flawed as the humans who serve them, as he is shaped and moulded to fulfil the prophecies that circle him like scavenger birds. Divine fury and mortal strife is about to spill over and paint the world with blood.

Reviews of Stormcaller (Twilight Reign, Book 1) (1 review)
The Stormcaller by Tom Lloyd Flawed Hero Isak is a White-Eye-a race of people who are extraordinarily strong, violent, and short-tempered. He struggles to control his weaknesses and grow into his strengths while learning to navigate court life in his new position as heir to the lord of the Fahlan. He is aided and opposed by an interesting and diverse set of characters. The setting and the plot make this anything but a typical epic fantasy. Fans of Joe Abercrombie and Scott Lynch will find The Stormcaller just as enjoyable.
