"Life happens how it happens, 
and you can either move with the maelstrom or die wallowing about the change in the winds."

Reading Roar earlier this year has left me wanting more of this series. I'm trying to keep this review short and sweet otherwise it will get very spoiler-heavy, but this was a very solid sequel. 

What is this book about?
Rage is the second book in the Stormheart trilogy, and features a universe that is ruled by storms. Previously being part of a Stormling family, Aurora is now part of a team of stormhunters, ready to join a revolution and reclaim her country. 

What did I think of Rage?
I absolutely flew through Rage. This was such a fantastic sequel. Second instalments often tend to have this effect on me; after getting used to the universe and world-building, it's easier to fully immerse yourself into the story and its characters. My favorite character in Roar was Aurora, and she continued to uphold that title in Rage. I loved seeing the development of her character, as well as her relationship with Locke. 

Rage is a lot more action-packed than Roar, which focused a lot on the initial world-building and travel of characters. Rage, then, is full of new developments. Cassius has wormed his way into my heart, and the reader learns to understand the characters a lot more. One of the newest and my favorite development in Rage, though, is the blossoming of yet another relationship, quite an unexpected one. I won't spoil who or what in this review, but I adored their relationship. The book ends on a cliffhanger, which manages to steal your breath and leaves you eagerly anticipating the next one.

Carmack manages to weave together such an intriguing universe that reminds me of a mix between Graceling and Avatar: The Last Airbender, and I'm loving every minute of it. This series is slowly worming its way into my heart and I can't wait for the undoubtedly stunning conclusion!
