Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala return in this second installment from the NUMA Files by Clive Cussler and Graham Brown. Their first collaboration was "Devil's Gate" in November last year. In this reviewer's opinion "The Storm" is a far better work for a number of reasons. First, the length of the novel is about sixty-four pages shorter than its predecessor. Fat has been trimmed from the plot, leaving a much leaner story line. Second, the proofreading errors that plagued "Devil's Gate" are gone here. Perhaps it was something as simple as a change of editors. And finally, the actual writing is much better this time. It's a lot crisper.

"The Storm" begins with a very short Prologue set in 1943 in the Indian Ocean. A "fast freighter" is under attack by the Japanese. Its top secret cargo seems to be of great interest to them. Chapter 1 takes us to 1967 in northern Yemen. A family is slaughtered and a pact to take revenge is set. Fast forward to June 2012 when a NUMA research vessel is overrun by some type of particle mass that swarms the ship, leading to the deaths of its three-person crew.

These three seemingly disparate events bring the NUMA Special Projects team (Austin, Zavala, and the Trouts) to the Maldives to investigate. Now that Dirk Pitt is Director of NUMA and rarely in the field, Kurt Austin has become the workhorse and he does a fine job of it.

First-time Cussler readers will not be disappointed, and long-time fans of the series should be pleasingly surprised with the new turn of writing events. I think everyone will enjoy this storm.

And finally a trivia footnote: One of the members of the evil consortium is Sheik Abin da-Alhrama. Readers may recognize the play on letters between Alhrama and Alhambra. Clive Cussler is a proud graduate of Alhambra High School.

Clive Cussler and Graham Brown have written another thrilling adventure with Kurt Austin as the main character. This time, Austin may have got more than he bargained for.

In the middle of the Indian Ocean, a NUMA research vessel is taking water temperatures when it is suddenly attacked by a mysterious black horde. Immediately, the vessel is consumed by the strange black mass. Everyone aboard is killed. A few hours later, Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala are on their way to the area. Once on the scene, Kurt and Joe learn that the black mass actually includes tiny mircoscopic-sized nanomachines that destroy anything in their path.

These machines are the design of Elwood Marchetti, an electronics guru who believes that nanobots will do everything in the future. But Marchetti is not responsible for the attack on the NUMA vessel; Jinn Al-Khalif is. Jinn planted people close to him into Marchetti's operations and learned the design of the bots from them. He wants to use the power of the nanobots to change the patters of the earth's weather, and representatives from several countries have already paid millions of dollars to have more rain fall on their countries. But, Jinn also realizes the destructive power of the bots. Now, it's up to Kurt, Joe, and the rest of the NUMA team to stop him before it's too late.

Clive Cussler is one of my favorite authors, and I enjoy reading his fast-paced adventure stories. "The Storm" fits the bill perfectly. The story is definitely fast-paced and has lots of plot twists along the way. The characters are well-developed and the story rises in crescendo throughout.

I recommend "The Storm" very highly. Fans of action/adventure stories will surely enjoy it.

As a fan, I always look forward to further adventures from Austin, Zavala, and the Trouts. The Storm is a solid entry into the NUMA files series. It begins with the loss of a NUMA team studying dropping ocean temperatures in the Indian ocean and keeps up a fair pace throughout. The Trouts are well-incorporated into the story with good action while Kurt and Zavala take a good beating of their own while tracking the evil madman to his lair and around the world to stop his horrific plan. The villan's plan is actually one of the highlights of the book with its inventiveness and cool tech. There is an action scene aboard an aircraft that I found particularly good and signature Cussler. While I did feel that the storm itself could have been used to present a more direct threat it still serves its purpose. A little more time taken to address an unanswered question at the end would have helped, but nevertheless The Storm was a fun escapist read that I enjoyed.
