REVIEW: Storm Fall by Tracy Banghart

Storm Fall (Rebel Wing, #2)
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 . . .

I received an ecopy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

When I first started this book, I was a bit upset. Because this book is only around 200 pages. I loved Rebel Wing and wanted more than 200 pages for a sequel! I quickly got over that and dived into another amazing book!

This book takes place months after the events of the last book. Aria is given the chance to come back to the Military as herself, not a man. The laws have been changed to allow women in the Military, but many are not accepting the fact that women can fight. Along with that, Aria, now Lieutenant Haan, is considered one of Atalanta’s heroes, but her status is also known to the Safaran's. Aria is in even more danger.

I felt that the last book focused more on Aria and how much stronger she becomes. She becomes stronger in this book, but that's not the main focus. This book gives us more info on the actual war, up front. Though, not from an Atalantan perspective. We get a lot more information about the Safaran's and how the war is affecting them. This is very interesting, as they are considered the enemy and most books do not give insight on the otherside.

The characters continue to be great and 3-dimensional, but what I really want to talk about is the romance. There is much more romance in this book and I loved it! The romance did not distract from the plot, the romance was obviously more slow-going and realistic, and I absolutely love the love interest! I ship it! I ship it so hard!

This is, honestly, becoming one of my favorite series! It's so absolutely brilliant! If you loved the first book, you will definitely love this one! It is thrilling, we get so much more information, and the characters are great!
I am definitely anticipating the next book!

I hereby give this book
5 Wheels
Meaning: A new favorite!
