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.

See my review of ROAR, the first book in this series!

Okay, so when is book three coming out?? There are so many unanswered questions that I have now and I just really want to know what happens next! I really liked that this one continued right where we left off with ROAR and then only expanded the universe, the magic, and the character development throughout the course of the novel.

I really like Aurora as a character and am glad that she got to learn more about herself and her counterpart but I still have SO many questions about how she plans to reign, her magic, and the way that she is interacting with everyone. It seems like she is really split between being the person she always was and the person she was meant to be - and I think a lot of people have that issue, especially as they start to grow up.

I am meh on the romances in this series and am really here for Aurora and Jinx and Novia (sorry if I spelled those wrong - audio!) just living their best lives being witches, honestly. I think there are much more cool and interesting dynamics between the friendships in this story than in the relationships.

I love love love the worldbuilding though. If nothing else, Aurora learning how to use her magic and "meeting up" with the Stormlord to learn more about how to take in souls and storms was literally the best part of this. I am so intrigued to learn more about Stormlings, Tempests, and the old ways of magic that seem to be in Aurora's blood. I am so intrigued to figure out who the Stormlord is too! I have some running theories and want to hear yours if you've read this one!

TLDR: I NEED the next book in this series. I must know what happens next and what the conclusion to this story is. I'm so invested and SO sad that I chose to read this before the third book had a release date. But like, honestly, read this. It's a great twist on the typical princess turned rebel story.

Have you read this book? Are you going to pick up this or the sequel?
