The Coming Storm Summary


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?

The Coming Storm Review

I previously read The Coming Darkness and I enjoyed finding out what happened to Alexandre Lamarque in this second book.

The Coming Storm is an intriguing dystopian novel set in the future at a time of a failed eco-terrorism plot. I found this book to be another fab complex thriller that had lots of details I needed to read through thoroughly to understand their meaning.

Alex has a relationship with Mariam and a great friendship with Amaury and they both support Alex in the next conspiracy.

I discovered more about Mariam’s past and I liked reading these chapters set in Paris. Alex is a focused character who is determined to continue being the hero he has been noted as.

I liked the interpretation of how people would be living and the little details added throughout this story. Although the environment is part of this story the key themes are espionage and terrorism.

This is a fascinating read and it poses the question of technology in our world and the possibilities of what would happen if it were to disappear suddenly.
