Rage (Stormheart #2) – Cora Carmack

I always appreciate when books start out just about where the previous one in the series left off and that’s exactly what this one did. The group of hunters had made it back to Pavan only to find out that Aurora’s kingdom is now in complete disarray. It’s easy to tell that something just isn’t right and Aurora knows she needs to do whatever necessary to get into that castle.

This book, to me, felt quite a bit different than the first. The writing itself was just as amazing, if not more, but the story was split off into four different directions/ POVs this time. While I get that they were all necessary because all were coming from very different people doing very different things, it kind of broke things up for me a little bit. I still obviously very much enjoyed myself, though.

I loved getting to see Aurora getting more courageous and strong while still making mistakes and making questionable decisions (and actually owning up to them). It was very refreshing to see. I also loved that she told Kiran to stuff it more, lol. He was still pretty overprotective but she just kind of was like ‘well, I know you don’t want me to do this but here I am doing it anyway so you can just DEAL, BUDDY’. Yassss queen.

We were also introduced to some new, and very interesting characters that I can’t wait to see more of and obviously we got to spend more time with our old favorites too. (BTW I KNEW IT!!!!!) <–You all will understand that when you read the part I’m talking about. I am dying to know more about that particular part/person. Also…I’m still super confused about the Stormlord. Like who is he?!? I’m guessing he’s related to someone we know but I honestly have no theories whatsoever so if you do, feel free to let me know!

Also….that ending……very,very, VERY, VERY interested to see where *that* will take us muahahahah. That’s all I’m giving you for now.  If you liked the first one, you’re definitely going to want to pick this one up as soon as it’s out!

Huge thanks to NetGalley and Tor Teen for allowing me to read an eARC in exchange for my honest opinion.

Princess or adventurer.

Duty or freedom.

Her Kingdom or the Stormhunter she loves.

If Aurora knows anything, it's that choices have consequences. To set things right, she joins a growing revolution on the streets of Pavan.

In disguise as the rebel Roar, she puts her knowledge of the palace to use to aid the rebellion. But the Rage season is at its peak and not a day passes without the skies raining down destruction. Yet these storms are different—they churn with darkness, and attack with a will that’s desperate and violent.

This feels like more than rage.

It feels like war.
