His sister Ella helps to build the machinery the Empire desperately needs, but she longs to find Killian and believes his powers will be needed in the conflict to come.

Probably the best so far
Path of the Storm is the best of the trilogy so far, in my opinion. So often with trilogies the books get worse as the series progresses, but Maxwell seems hellbent on breaking that rule.
The aftermath of the war and realisation that one of the feared Evermen has returned adds a new dimension to the plot. Ella's insistence, even when others beg against it, to find a way to bring Killian back sees her gaining help from a source that, ordinarily would be seen as unthinkable.
In my last review I stated how Maxwell expanded his world, showing new lands and people. This time he's done it again, but on a far grander scale. The exploration into both the past and the present lands of his world make this book as enthralling as the plotline he has drummed up with the returning Everman.
All in all, this is a solid book and one that should not be missed.

These books have several good elements in them, such as, the world building, the interesting magic system and the individual character stories. But, there's so much battle and struggle struggle that it gets bogged down and a bit tedious, at times. The situation with Amber is kind of ridiculous. She's smart and capable, but she's a sorceress and she never has any of her sorceress'a gear with her, so she's really just a normal person. It's kind of weird. What's the point of her even being a sorceress? At least she is a good character, intelligent and capable. Overall, these books are okay. I'm always curious where the story is going, even though sometimes it's obvious. It would be nice if they were a little faster paced.

Path of the Storm
Book was pretty good overall.
I had some issues with the drawn out actions the characters made, that frankly weren’t very realistic to how people would actually act, or at least not in my opinion. Some of these parts made the characters seem just stupid at best, and gave at worst the idea that they were flat out inept.
I doubt this was supposed to be the case, but frankly if you knew you were short on time, you would hurry before anything else. If you knew the whole area was dangerous you would be as stealthy as possible.
I won’t do spoilers, but I mean if what you’re carrying lights up like a torch then put it out when not in use.
If you are pressed for time, then don’t stand around bsing, run like your life depends on it, (it did).
Anyway, outside of my feelings for these certain parts, where it was frustrating, the book was great and overall enjoyable and entertaining.
Vance did a great performance, I like his portrayal.
