Synopsis (from Goodreads):
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 . . .

My Review:
This book is the sequel to rebel wing, it has almost been a year since Aris Haan left the village of Lux behind and took up the mantle of Aristos in order to serve in the Atalantan military. It’s been 2 months since Aris was discharded from the military after her true identity was exposed, Aris has not exactly had an easy time readjusting to civilian life. Her love for flying has taken a big hit, Calix is no longer in her life, has a big issues with PTSD also has scars and dreams about very awful things. Her action while serving as Aristos has pretty much been buried by bureaucratic bullshit, but things are starting to change thanks to some supports behind the scenes like Ward Galena Vadim who is looking for a hero and someone the troops can rally behind.

Thank you to Aris’s actions in Rebel Wing, Women are now officially allowed to serve openly in the military, with the arrival of Major Vidal, Aris is very much encourage to come back to the military, this time this time with big time promotion and a chance to once again make a difference. Aris no longer has to hide who she is or her abilities from anyone, she does face hostilities from her male colleagues, but that does not cause her to run away with her tail between her legs and neither does being number one on Safara’s to capture or kill list.

This is an entirely new Aris we saw in Rebel Wing. While she still gets her time in the sky, and does remarkable things, she has a whole new view on life thanks to her romance with Major Vidal. I will say that Storm Fall is much more romance intensive than Rebel Wing was. I will also say that Storm Fall leaves a pretty apparent cliffhanger ending that bridges to the next installment, I also would definitely encourage readers to start reading Rebel Wing before jumping into Storm Fall.

My Ratings:


  1. Yay! So glad to know about someone else who also loves this series! What do you like the most about it?

    1. What I liked most was the romance growing between her and Major Vidal
