  • I just finished reading an Advance Reading Copy of King of the Storm, the first novel from author BA Brock, which came out on Tuesday.Let me say first that I have known BA for about two years now – he is the reviewer for the Queer Sci Fi site, and I was privileged to read a bit of the novel in beta, when it was posted to our critique group.But reading pieces and reading the whole thing are two entirely different experiences. I now know how everything fits together!The book takes place in Greec [...]


  • I like it ok, but I started to feel bogged down around the 50% mark. The story lost some of its appeal and I had to push myself through to the other side, but I was glad I did. It started to pick back up around 65% or so, and I loved the ending. This was a different take on the whole Greek mythology thing, which was exciting. Hopefully the author will give us more in this world.


  • A+ things about this book:1) Brock writes with clear language that almost "rolls film" in front of your eyes.2) Accomplishes a lot of plot and action in a satisfying length book.3) Excellent at battle scenes and descriptions of fights.4) Pansexual/polyamorous character.5) Purposeful perversion, rather than perversion with no purpose. And I do mean perversion, not kink, because there were layers of social/personal perversion in the book, not just sexual. 6) Sex on page.7) Portraying the more trad [...]


  • A Joyfully Jay review. 1.5 starsAs a survivor of four years of high school Latin, the Greek myths (and their Roman cousins) have a special place in my heart. Once you’ve slogged through dozens of translations, it’s hard not to develop an affinity for the ludicrous exploits of the randy gods on Mount Olympus. As a result, I was really looking forward to King of the Storm and found myself incredibly disappointed. The author indicates this is meant to be something of an alternate history or a f [...]


  • So I am not really sure what to say about this story While this starts of as a m/m it quickly turns to m/f about halfway through with some m/m mixed in. So I wanted to give a little warning for those who mainly read m/m like me. I did kind of get disappointed after that because I rarely read m/f books anymore so it did kind of bring this book down for me mainly because I went into this book and after reading the first part thinking one thing then everything changed up and honestly I was really n [...]


  • This is the debut novel for author B.A. Brock and I know that always makes people nervous. You think, “Oh no, a new author. I want to wait and see what everyone says before I spend my money.” Okay, I get it. So, here’s my take on this book. It’s quite entertaining. It takes place in Greece, but Greece of what seems like an alternate universe. Different realm maybe. I thought that was very clever. Does it follow Greek Mythology? Hmm. Not completely, no but by shifting the reality of thing [...]


  • ****Reviewed for Prism Book Alliance®****As King of the Storm comes from Dreamspinners’ DSP imprint, you may guess that it is not a romance per se. There is a love story in there, in fact on some levels, there are many. That in itself is why it doesn’t fit the traditional definition. King of the Storm is an epic journey of a man spanning many years and adventures.I had to suspend some of my personal foibles to truly appreciate this story. As this is set in a fictional world patterned off of [...]


  • 3.5 STARSGood story and fantasy based off Greek mythology. There is a lot of MM switching to M/F and back again, what some would call cheating but due to what problems certain Demi-Gods suffer from thats not the case within this stories confines. I liked this story and will read the sequel when it's released, I need to see where it goes before I can get a better grasp on it. I think fantasy fan might enjoy this, it's a good read and well written.


  • Don't be put off by the "Book One," subtitle. This is a standalone story, told in the first person by Perseus himself.Oh Perseus! You are a total fox, with an innate ability to stumble into trouble. The Perils of Perseus, perhaps? Lightning bolts from his talented fingers don't save this young man from getting trashed at various points throughout this great re-imagining of a familiar tale. Yes, it has the obligatory recounting of Perseus fighting Medusa, and conquering the Kraken whilst rescui [...]


  • 2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: King of the Storm by B. A. BrockVery different take on Greek mythology where the gods and demi-gods are flawed, selfish and sometimes devious characters without a lot of moral fiber. Nevertheless, often humorous, poignant and thoroughly entertaining.


  • A Scattered Thoughts And Rogue Words ReviewFirst and foremost, I should probably address reader expectations. “King of the Storm” is not a M/M Romance with Fantasy. This is primarily a retelling of the Ancient Greek legend about Perseus, who happens to be pansexual in this book. So he has sex with both men and women, though the m/f sex scenes are not explicit. He also has relationships with both genders. I liked the variety of that, but it’s probably not to everybody’s tastes.Fantasy abo [...]


  • This book. Wow. This book is hard to review for me. The writing is vastly engaging, but the format is hard for me to grab and stay invested in. That said, I feel like the structure of this book is well-suited to it's subject.I'm not versed in Greek history, culture, or mythology. I know there's Zeus and Apollo but I'm just as likely to confuse them with their Roman names and couldn't tell you who is god or goddess of what to save my life. So I'm not exactly the ideal fan for this book going into [...]


  • Debut author BA Brock has written a heroic tale, bending and twisting Greek mythology in a way that kept me fascinated by what would happen next. Perseus comes aliveon the page as a fully human demigod who survives the whims of the gods, all the while having the same wants for love and family as any mortal human. Great first book. I am looking forward to more by this author.


  • An interesting concept. An alternate Greek mythology interacting with an alternative earth. I love mythology. This was unique. Very well written. Not for everyone, but I loved itough the fabric was soft, I winced, feeling raw and vulnerable. With a sigh, he cuddled around me as though it were the most natural thing in the world to touch me, but no one had ever touched me this way.


  • A decent retelling of Greek mythology, but the writing was somewhat bland/flat, and I didn't find an emotional connection to any of the characters. The pacing was rough as well, with the story completely falling off in the second half.


  • I really really wanted to like this book, but there was no life to the writing, I never was invested in or cared about any of the characters, and the story itself felt lather, rinse, repeat in a dissatisfying way.
