    Okay can someone please explain to me WHY this is... not listed as a sequel to The Brilliant Death on goodreads, despite the blurb making it very clear that it is??? Because I totally though The Brilliant Death was a standalone...

    I'm all of a sudden a whole lot more satisfied with how The Brilliant Death ended...

    Anyways I NEED THIS ASAP. I need to see how my darling Cielo and Teo are doing! And ahhhhhh how am I supposed to wait?!?!?! I NEED IT. NOW PLEASE.
    E.
    When did it get a cover????

    Oh my GOD. The Brilliant Death was one of my absolute favorite reads this year. I need this sequel like breathing.
    noah
    I read The Brilliant Death earlier this year and loved it. I thought it was so creative and unique and I couldn't wait for the next book. So, you can imagine my delight when I was approved for an ARC of The Storm of Life. I started it immediately, but somehow I wasn't connecting with the characters and the story as much as I did with the first book.

    I read The Brilliant Death in one sitting. I stayed up all night eager to see what would become of Teodora and Cielo. This time I read in starts and

    So 3.5/5 stars. Allow me to explain. This was a lovely little fantasy book with plenty of fantasy politics. It’s about love, family, and new beginnings. Teo and Cielo explore their relationship as well as the path they plan to take after The Brilliant Death. I really did fall in love with their love. It was a nice book, though it did take me a bit to get through. The first seventy pages or so of the book felt very scattered and a little confusing, like having to play mental catchup. Maybe it was ...more

    I haven't read the first book, which is usually a huge detractor for me. However, Capetta does a good job of smoothly introducing the magic system and integrating past plot points into the narrative. Less effective, in my opinion, is the establishment of previous relationships—I don't think I got the full emotional impact of Teo's feelings toward her family members, for example, though we certainly got a strong enough sense of Teo's physical feelings toward Cielo and vice versa.

    Ultimately, I

    A genderfluid novel that has a unique feel. It will find an audience of teens and young adults that will love the balance of individualism. The backdrop is descriptive and blends harmonically with the characters. I could not get over the unique feel of the novel. The novel is a sequel to A Brillant Death.
    Thank you to Edelweiss and Viking Books for the opportunity to read and review the E-arc copy of this novel.
