This is a story of the whales and dolphins who rule the Seven Seas and the odyssey of a white dolphin named Apollo whose destiny is to save whalekind from destruction on this planet man calls Earth but whales know as Planet Ocean.
Whether you choose to believe it or not, humans are not the only intelligent beings on this endangered blue marble drifting silently through space; for that reason, Apollo’s story must be told lest you and your kind live on in ignorance of the complex civilization that lies beneath the waves. If you dare to join him, Apollo will take you into a world filled with mystery and magic, mayhem and madness—a place of budding life and sudden death where the light of the sun penetrates only the upper layers, leaving the rest of its vast dominions inked in eternal darkness. You will find pleasure in clear, sunlit shallows above rippled sandy bottoms where tiny fish zoom and zip, and feel terror in deep, dark, cold waters where monsters dwell.
And when your journey is done, you will never again look upon the oceans that surround you through the same eyes, or think about the whales and dolphins who dwell within them with the same mind, for this is a true tale of life, and death, and renewal that exists beyond the thin blue line that divides Apollo’s world from yours: it is a world unlike anything you have ever known and you ignore it at your peril.
Poseidon's call for war would soon echo around the world, sending fear into the hearts of every being, and plunging their souls into darkness. Within the weeks and months to come, it would create two global warring factions; those who chose to join with Poseidon and rise up against man, and those who saw it as an act of collective suicide. And although he did not realize it yet, drifting there, lost among the confusion and the choas, a little Harbor Porpoise named Pan was about to become an unlikely hero in the battle to save whalekind. And what a battle it would be.

Read It - Our World Demands It
The Tempest’s Roar: Read it!!! Our world demands it. The Tempest's Roar accomplishes what so many others have failed to do by creating a seemingly mythical world where the truths of our existence on this planet are unmasked. The union of all things began in the moments of creation and the bonds forged when chaos became order are holy and ever present. R.A.R Clouston has given voice not only to those who reside in the world’s oceans but to the whole of this world, and it is a voice of hope.

The most amazing adventure story ever. Powerful and relevant to the critical state we have arrogantly forced upon our oceans and the whales and dolphins who call them whome.
The Tempest's Roar overwhelmed every emotion and others I'd locked away. Belongs in film director James Cameron's back pocket!
