In the movies, Thundertown was depicted like a real town, with boundaries, Folk-run businesses, and a government. In real life, Thundertown was a block here or there, three businesses on the same side of the street, an unconnected sewer main, or a single abandoned building.
When an epidemic of missing person cases is on the rise, the police refuse to act. Instead, Alex Delatorre goes to Thundertown for answers and finds clues leading to a new Lord trying to unite the population.
No one has seen the Lord, and the closer Alex gets to him, the farther Alex gets from his path home.
I really wanted to like Lord of Thundertown. Actually, I did like a fair amount of it. The writing was great, the characters were intriguing and the world building drew me in. The problem was that this story line was all over the place. So much so that I spent a fair amount of time confused.
Even so, that doesn’t mean that I’m going to give up on this author. Given that this is not only the first book that I’ve read by O.F. Cieri, I’m pretty sure it’s their first book. I’ll be on the look out for more from this author.
