Review: Storm Fall

Review of Storm Fall
by Tracy Banghart:
 
 
My Thoughts:
 



 
There is so much I could say about Storm Fall but I want to start with a round of applause for Tracy Banghart who, not only overcame the dreaded Middle Book Syndrome, but managed to improve her writing drastically from her debut. This sequel was fantastic and defied all expectations I had of it. While Rebel Wing was good, it was lacking and left me with feeling a little half-hearted when approaching this sequel.

But how silly I feel now!

I cannot believe the growth in Aris. She has developed into a fully fleshed-out protagonist who has become so much more confident, more self-aware, happier, stronger... just become an incredible character in general. The writing bought her struggles to life and we learnt not to sympathise with her predicament, as expected, but to be proud of how far she has come and how strong she has become to go even further.

Hats off to Tracy Banghart for that accomplishment!

The plot was just plain old good. It had be engaged and entertained. I sat down and didn't get up again until I had finished it... at 1 am in the morning. The action sequences were suspenseful, urgent and captivating; the romance was well-paced and swoon-worthy. Milek! There was nothing major to fault.

Unfortunately, I do have to say that a few things that annoyed me. For one, I do not support the Ward Nekos and Galena side plot. Its unnecessary and honestly, I couldn't care less about it. I don't want them to get together. I don't think it would be good from them personally or for the good of their dominions.

Secondly, the invisible plane debacle. How the heck does that thing work

As you can tell, I thoroughly enjoyed Storm Fall. It was entertaining and I loved the characters. The third book in the trilogy is now one of my most highly anticipated sequels of the year. If you were iffy about Rebel Wing, don't hesitate to pick this sequel up. Its worth it.

  1. Oh wow, this seems like a brilliant continuation to the series! Yes, it is hard to avoid middle book syndrome so to hear that this one was better than the previous makes this a must read for me. Can't wait to try it!
