Title Storm from the East
Author Joanna Hathaway
War has begun, and the days of Athan’s and Aurelia’s secret, summer romance feel a world away.
Led by Athan’s father, the revolutionary Safire have launched a secret assault upon the last royal kingdom in the South, hoping to depose the king and seize a powerful foothold on the continent. Athan proves a star pilot among their ranks, struggling to justify the violence his family has unleashed as he fights his way to the capital—where, unbeknownst to him, Aurelia has lived since the war’s onset. Determined to save the kingdom Athan has been ordered to destroy, she partners with a local journalist to inflame anti-Safire sentiment, all while learning this conflict might be far darker and more complex than she ever imagined.
When the two reunite at last, Athan longing to shake the nightmare of combat and Aurelia reeling from the discovery of a long-buried family truth come to light, they’ll find the shadow of war stretches well beyond the battlefield. Each of them longs to rekindle the love they once shared . . . but each has a secret they’re desperate to hide.
I have not actually read the first book yet. It’s on my shelf but other books keep bumping it back on my TBR. Seeing this description makes me want to move it up ASAP.
The cover 😍 that green!
You all know how much I love green for a cover.
The title! I love when titles connect in a series. They don’t always have to but I love that they do here.
I can’t speak much to the plot as I have not read the first book yet but, as I said, this news makes me want to read the first book, Dark of the West, immediately.
