Princess or adventurer.

Duty or freedom.

Her Kingdom or the Stormhunter she loves.

If Aurora knows anything, it’s that choices have consequences. To set things right, she joins a growing revolution on the streets of Pavan.

In disguise as the rebel Roar, she puts her knowledge of the palace to use to aid the rebellion. But the Rage season is at its peak and not a day passes without the skies raining down destruction. Yet these storms are different—they churn with darkness, and attack with a will that’s desperate and violent.

This feels like more than rage.

It feels like war.


Rage resumes at the end of Roar, Aurora returned to Pavan to try to save her people from the Locke and the stormlord. She will meet the rebels, she will also have to confess the truth to Kiran, Jinx and all the others about her true identity.

We have several points of view, that of Roar of course, but also those of Kiran, Novaya, Cassius and Cruze.

It was a real pleasure to find all the characters I had loved so much in the first book. They have evolved a lot and although I am quite disappointed with how long it takes Roar to tell her friends the truth, I still understand her reasons.

I loved seeing Roar take control of herself with the will to save her people, to change mentalities and not to ruin her relationship and friendships in the process. So yes, there are ups and downs, but she’s finally taking responsibility and I like it.

Kiran is a mule’s head, his objective is to protect Roar but obviously when he discovers the truth he is more or less upset. His reactions are normal even if it breaks my heart.

I really enjoyed having Cassius’ feelings and thoughts, I can’t manage to hate him totally because even if his methods are deplorable I still think he has a good heart. Now I ask to see in the last volume. Especially since I was quite surprised by the end of Rage.

We are also discovering Novaya much more, I find her very endearing and I really hope that the relationship she has managed to establish with Jinx will not end soon.

Cruze is a rather interesting character, not developed enough despite all the chapters of his point of view but we understand a little more things.

I really loved this book and I hope we don’t have to wait too long before we know the end of the story.

Quick word: A series full of action and twists and turns.


Rage repart à la fin de Roar, Aurora est revenue à Pavan pour essayer de sauver son peuple des Locke et du maitre des tempètes. Elle va rencontrer les rebelles, elle devra aussi avouer la vérité à Kiran, Jinx et tous les autres sur sa vraie identité.

Nous avons plusieurs points de vue, celui de Roar bien sûr mais aussi ceux de Kiran, Novaya, Cassius et Cruze.

Ca a été un vrai plaisir de retrouver tous les personnages que j’avais tant aimé dans le premier livre. Ils ont pas mal évolués et même si je suis assez déçue du temps que prends Roar à avouer la vérité à ses amis je comprends malgré tout ses raisons.

J’ai adoré voir Roar se reprendre en main avec la volonté de sauver son peuple, de changer les mentalités et de ne pas ruiner son couple et ses amitiés au passage. Alors oui il y a des hauts et des bas mais elle prend enfin ses responsabilités et j’aime ça.

Kiran est une tête de mule, son objectif est de protéger Roar mais évidement quand il découvre la vérité il est plus ou moins chamboulé. Ses réactions sont normales même si ça me brise le cœur.

J’ai beaucoup aimé avoir les sentiments et les reflexions de Cassius, je n’arrive pas à le detester totalement car même si ses méthodes son déplorable je pense malgré tout qu’il a un bon fond. Maintenant je demande à voir dans le dernier tome. Surtout que j’ai été assez surprise par la fin de Rage.

On découvre aussi Novaya beaucoup plus, je la trouve très attachante et j’espère vraiment que la relation qu’elle a réussi à nouer avec Jinx ne s’arrêtera pas en si bon chemin.

Cruze est un personnage assez interessant, pas assez développé malgré tous les chapitres de son point de vue mais on comprend un peu plus de choses.

J’ai vraiment adoré ce tome et j’espère que nous n’aurons pas à attendre trop longtemps avant de connaitre la fin de l’histoire.

En bref : Une suite pleine d’action et de rebondissements.
