Start your review of Storm from the East (Glass Alliance, #2)
I've been lucky enough to read book 2 of the Glass Alliance series, and I can guarantee it's even more beautiful, heartbreaking, epic, and romantic than book 1 (not to mention my fav Garrick getting more page time).

You know that delicious feeling when you finish a first book of a series, and it was amazing, but you get the spine-tingling suspicion that it was all set up for an EVEN BETTER sequel? This is that sequel. I loved Dark of the West, but Storm from the East is payoff, and ups the ante in every possible way.

The Glass Alliance series is structured like a tragedy: with the end at the beginning, a future snapshot of its two main characters after they have lost all innocence to war, but might still be

I’m posting this little update because I have ARCs and therefore things are getting very real for Storm from the East! If you’re interested in snagging one, head on over to my Instagram (handle @spitfirewriter) where I’ll be doing plenty of giveaways before release. Needless to say, I’m incredibly excited to share this second installment of the Glass Alliance series with you. Some of the things you can expect: a glimpse into Sinora and General Dakar’s shared past, a closer look at Southern ...more

While I greatly enjoyed Dark of the West last year, I think Storm from the East greatly surpassed it. The worldbuilding and characters are fleshed out more, and truths and secrets are uncovered (still more to come, however). Storm from the East was a thrilling sequel, one that will steal your attention and won't let it go.

original review:

ngl aurelia was really annoying me in the first half (love u tho athan) but that second half was soooo good

also s/o to the dakar brothers!! we love

From the opening pages to the list lines, Storm of the East had me turning pages, gasping out loud and yes, even crying. Glass Alliance #2 is even better than #1, it's everything you could want in a fantasy series: revolution, romance, political intrigue and more! And of course, Hathaway's writing is as beautiful as always. I feel very lucky that I got an advance look!

Several days after finishing it and I'm still thinking about all the things that happened, the tears, the heartache, the swoons and the FEELS!

Please don't read this review if you haven't read Dark of the West first - while there won't be spoilers from Storm from the East, there might be tiny ones from Dark of the West.

Let's me just say, Dark of the West, while really good, pales in comparison next to SftE - and I devoured DotW. I sneak-read at work, glaring at people for daring to interrupt. I

Daring rebellion, beautiful friendships, dangerous family secrets, heart-breaking romance, plots behind plots and stories behind stories, all vividly rendered against an escalating story of war—what else could you ask for? This book has it all. I loved it.

Storm from the East is the absolute perfect follow up to Dark of the West, the start of a fantasy series spiraling into a situation similar to our own leading up to and during WWI and WWII. Normally World War inspired fiction follows too closely, and doesn't give life of it's own to the world, but Hathaway has found that balance, and her creation is something absolutely phenomenal. The whole aspect of the magic of monarchies failing in the face of the glory of revolution and governing yourself ...more

I am surprised by how much I enjoyed this novel. It is so different from the first one - far more focused on war and politics, but you care so much for the characters that you have to keep turning the page. Joanna's depictions of war and what it can do to the country that has been invaded are raw and true. Of course there is some romance that will leave you fanning yourself. The character growth is also extremely well done. A solid sequel with lots of twists and turns; I can't wait for book 3.

Thank you to Edelweiss and Tor Teen for the opportunity to read and review the E-Arc copy of Storm of the East by Joanna Hathaway.

The second book in the Dark of the West series bring war, romance, and a revolution to a head. The family secrets are being found out and true love seems far away. It is hard to believe that Joanna Hathaway's series is for young adults. Her writing style is eloquent and she has excellent world building skills.
