In the action-packed sequel to Rebel Wing, Aris battles for life and love . . . and not everyone will survive.
Aris Haan gave up everything to join the Atalantan Military: her family, her boyfriend, even her identity. In the end, though, it didn’t matter that she was a war hero. When the all-male Military discovered that she was actually a woman, she was sent home and erased from history.
Now she has a chance to go back to the battlefield—as herself. But as hard as it was to be a soldier in disguise, it’s even more difficult now. The men in her unit undermine her at every turn. The Safaran army has spies everywhere, perhaps even on Aris’s stationpoint. And she’s falling for her mysterious superior officer, Milek. But their relationship is forbidden, just stolen moments between training sessions and missions. There’s no room for love in war.
Then Aris discovers that Safara’s leaders have set their sights on her, Atalanta’s hero. And she must find them before they find her
Most of the times, sequels tend to be disappointing. Whether it is because of the high expectations that readers build, or the slowed down pace of story telling. Fortunately, Storm Fall doesn’t fall under that category.
The Book begins with a new law being added, which is ( Women can volunteer to enter the Military). Of course, Aris volunteers because the Military is now her life. Getting to see Milek daily is a bonus, but he is not the reason why she is going back to the Military Life. She loves the fact that she can save people. Returning there as a women won’t be easy, though. Almost every man looks down at her, or even worse, harass her.
The Plot thickens as Sadara’s leaders feel that they are threatened by Aris; they would stop at nothing to bring her and Atlanta down.
One thing I didn’t like was how the ending of a specific character was executed in way , so the conflict that is ingoing with him/her and another character would be resolved.
As if the action was not enough, the relationship between several characters develops. This adds new conflicts, and more flavor to the story. We also get more Ariek ( Aris + Milek), which is awesome.
I really enjoyed Storm Fall as much as I loved Rebel Wings; perhaps even more.
I received an ARC of Storm Fall in exchange with an honest review.
