Update on the changed date:

Our beloved author Cora Carmack was diagnosed with epilepsy and is currently trying to find the medication that works best for her.

She is going through a lot right now, so maybe send her some encouraging words on twitter, goodreads, instagram or any other platform you can think of and let her know that even though we are anxiously waiting for her masterpiece-of-a-sequel RAGE, her health is beyond important and we are all rooting for her to get better.

Upon my reread of Roar, I find that I actually ... like Locke a lot.

But Cassius is everything oh no. I can't help but love him. And ship him. Oops.

Either way, I'm SO excited. SO READY.


I just really need my ship to take off.

It's finally here! Now, do I reread Roar before jumping in, or can I recall what I read 2.5 years ago? 🤔

I was anticipating this book so much!!!!!! But the date has been changed to 2019.

My heart almost died.

But Cora is working through some health issues right now. As much as it pains me to have to wait for some Locke action and to see where the story is headed, I wish you well and good health! 😊❣
I can’t W-A-I-T for Rage! 😃




If you haven't picked Roar up yet and love YA Fantasy, there's still time!!!

I loved the unique magic system of the first book and am so anxious to get back with the Stormhunters!!!
HOLY SHIT! What an INCREDIBLE ending! I’m going to try and write a full review because this book deserves a lot of my love.
Three things in no particular order
1. Cassius
2. Nova
3. Jinx

I cannot wait for book number three, I need it now!
Two things.

1. I need this in my life right now.

Admittedly this one suffered badly from Second Book Syndrome and I was originally going to rate it 3 stars but that last chapter made me bump it up to a 3.5... maybe even a 4. Praying that the last book will make up for this slow drag that got little to nothing accomplished 😩

"But in this city, in all Stormling cities, he was acutely aware that humans could cause just as much damage as the fiercest of tempests."

The highly anticipated sequel to Roar was equal parts thrilling and suffering from second book syndrome, but overall I have to say I enjoyed more than I disliked. If you haven't picked up Rage yet I would highly recommend doing a reread of Roar. I had only read the first book a few months back but I was still so confused when I first picked up book two bec

We are not free when ruled by fear.

I read Roar three years ago, I didn't enjoy it much but I was curious and wanted to know what the author will do next, now that I do I'm disappointed.

Rage picked up just where Roar ended. Aurora is back to paven with Kiran and the rest of the hunters. Kiran didn't know she was the princess for the better half of the book. Aurora was recognised and she joined the resistance. The resistance didn't do much in my opinion.

Cliffhanger: Yes
Genre: YA fantasy

I couldn't have been more excited to return to Pavan after being completely swept away by the tempest otherwise known as Roar. I loved the worldbuilding centering around storms, and the royals with affinities who could defeat them. There were storm hunters and witches and a mysterious Stormlord out for revenge. Of course as the first in a trilogy we left off with a cliffhanger and m

It was going to be 3 stars, but the last chapters are worth a 3.5, maybe even 4 stars.

I liked Roar better than Rage. This sequel is still a good book, but I find that not much happens, except for the last third of the book.

Aurora and the hunters are back in Pavan and Aurora wants to rescue the queen and Nova from the castle, but besides this rescue mission, not much happens for the first two-

I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. My thoughts and opinions are my own. Any quotes I use are from an unpublished copy and may not reflect the finished product.

I was really looking forward to reading Rage, but I almost gave up on it a few times. Skimming ahead piqued my curiosity, but just barely. I think my biggest issue was that nothing really happened. The story progresses, but there was a lot more adventure and excitement in the first book. Roar had been wi

First let’s begin with two statements:

This sequel was long awaited!

I read ROAR while I visited Colorado more than two years ago and waited for RAGE since that time. I follow Cora on social media and new she had serious health problems and reading her acknowledgements I could understand what she went through and why of course, she needed time to write this story.

I really enjoy this series but never seem to give more than 4 stars.

This is a great book but there is something lac

Decent follow-up but not quite as good as Roar. I really do enjoy seeing Aurora's relationship with her mom getting more development and hope that continues in the sequel. ...more

OHHHH SHITTTTT lolllll. Famous last words, amiright?😈 RTC!
I always appreciate when books start out just about where the previous one in the series left off and that’s exactly what this one did. The group of hunters had made it back to Pavan only to find out that Aurora’s kingdom is now in complete disarray. It’s easy to tell that something just isn’t right and Aurora knows she needs to do whatever necessary to get into that castle.

This book, to me, felt quite a bit different than the first. T

Before I wrote this review, I had to do some thinking. I did like this sequel overall but there were just a few things that I didn’t like when it came to a few of the characters or the plot.

When it came to Kiran and Cassius, I was on the fence about them in the first book. In this book there was definitely one I liked more than the other. Kiran just got on my nerves throughout and I wasn’t a fan of the relationship between him and Roar/Aurora. It was just meh. Cassius was always suave from the b

I'm incredibly excited to announce that I have been chosen to participate on Cora Carmack's Street Team for Rage and I couldn't be any more happy to spread more love for Cora and her books. Roar was a whirlwind of magic and action. And of course, it doesn't hurt that there are several very hot love interests.

I'll occasional be posting updates here for anything Rage Street Team related, but I highly encourage you to follow me on Instagram: :)

As usual, Cora Cormack does NOT disappoint. I have missed Roar, Locke and Cassius for so long and was so happy to see them again right where they were left off. Learning more about storms, their purposes and the spirits was an incredible ride and still not enough for me! I want MORE ROAR!!! I would recommend this series for any fans of Graceling, the Grishaverse, and Avatar the Last Airbender. This complex world of magic, political intrigue and people just trying to survive is beautiful, raw and ...more

I received a copy of this from Edelweiss and TorTeen. Wow! I enjoyed this book just as much as the first. I love the crew and how well they are all gelling. I am shocked by the Queen and by the prince In how different they are. The Stormlord has become very unstable and I look forward to seeing how they all come together to defeat him. An excellent story I look forward to continuing. My only complaint was that there were no breaks in the story that let you know when you were changing scenes and ...more

The struggle with having a five star sequel you wanna gush about to the world but don’t wanna spoil book one (for any unsuspecting reader who doesn’t know there’s another book before this one) and don’t wanna spoil this book because it deserves a prestige no spoilers intake.

So what I will say is

1. The story has a lot more action because we have a lot less travel in this book. The pacing for the action is good and it never feels dry even when we aren’t fighting a storm and instead fighting one
