Action-packed, compelling, and ultimately moving...I could not put it down. Highly recommended. (Victoria Addis A Hermit's Progress Blog)

This gripping tale had me totally mesmerised as you’re thrown between the two world of Owen and Jack, never knowing when things will change leaving you feel tense and totally enthralled as you get lost in the story. The future dystopian world which Owen finds himself is bleak and disturbing, controlled by the Marshal they are on a mission to protect the human race. But things are not always what they seem and Owen is the only one who can see disparities in the truth that it is being told to them and the events unfolding around them. Mike’s writing is so vivid and realistic that you find yourself totally convinced that this future world is a possibility because it is so brilliantly constructed before your eyes. Wonderfully detailed and filled with action, it contrasts superbly with the very ordinariness of Owen’s seemingly uncomplicated life.

Storm Walker by Mike Revell examines the nature of grief through an inventive story about a boy who will always feel the loss of his mom but who also wants to live a vibrant life with his dad again. Owen’s forays into his dad’s story are difficult, as the world he enters is bleak and dangerous. He also loses big chunks of his own life, and begins to feel the separation from everyone important to him. Still, he persists because he wants to help his dad.
As Storm Walker moves between the two story lines, readers are pulled into what is happening in both. It’s a technique that’s not easy to accomplish, but Revell does a great job of keeping readers interested in what’s happening with Owen as well as with Jake, his literary doppelganger. The stories weave together in a way that will keep readers guessing about what happens next right up until the end.
I recommend Storm Walker for mother-daughter book clubs with girls aged 9 to 12.
