Review: Rage by Cara Carmack


Princess or adventurer.

Duty or freedom.

Her Kingdom or the Stormhunter she loves.

If she knows anything, it’s that choices have consequences— like the storm now tangled with her heart, the alarming disappearance of her mother and friend, and the fall of her kingdom to the Locke family. To set things right, she joins a growing revolution on the streets of Pavan. She puts her knowledge of the palace to use to aid the rebellion, but the Lockes aren’t the only sinister thing plaguing Pavan. The Rage season is at it’s peak and not a day passes without the skies raining down destruction. But these storms seem… different than any she’s ever encountered. They churn with a darkness that frightens her, and attack with a will like she’s never seen.

This feels like more than Rage.

It feels like war.

Favorite Lines:

“Nature is the cruelest of masters.”

“I am beginning to realize that I traded one kind of naivety for another. I left this sheltered place, looking to learn more about myself and the world, and I did that. I thought I had cracked open some secret and everything would then fall into place. Bit I forgot that it is not as simple as my single journey from beginning to end, that there are thousands upon thousands of other journeys happening simultaneously. Why should mine be any more important than theirs? We’re all connected, and more suffering for one means more suffering for all. At least that’s how it should be. But everything is so divided, no one here looks past the parameters of their own wants and needs.”

My Opinion:

Rage is the second book in the Stormheart series by Cora Carmack. You can find the review for Roar, the first book in the series, here. Rage picks up where Roar left off, with Aurora traveling back to the castle to save her kingdom from destruction. She doesn’t know if the destruction will be at the hands of the Lockes or the Stormlord.

I really enjoyed the first book of this series and the second was no different. Carmack does an excellent job at providing a well written story and keeping the readers engaged. I never found myself bored or wanting to skip to the good part; the whole book was the good part.

There wasn’t anything I can think of that I didn’t particularly like about the book. I had been waiting for it to be released and preordered it to get it the day it came out and I was not disappointed.


Overall, I really enjoyed this book and the only downside is now I have to wait at least another year for the next one to come out. Happy reading, everyone!
