Full Review at The Speculative Herald: http://www.speculativeherald.com/2015/12/10/review-angel-of-storms-by-trudi-cana...

With Angel of Storms, the Millenium’s Rule series continues to fascinate me. While I enjoyed The Black Magician Trilogy, I will confess to never loving it. This trilogy is turning out to be a much better match for me. Perhaps this is mainly because The Black Magician trilogy is young adult, where as this one, I believe is not. Regardless of the reason, I tend to be captivated by this series and find it incredibly fun to read. This is the second in the trilogy, and while I felt like there was a good deal of progression in this book including wonderful details about the world, there is still so much left to resolve that I actually had to verify if this was a trilogy or a longer series. And it is definitely listed as a trilogy, so I suspect that final book is going to be packed with lots of excitement!

For readers of the first book, I know many were hoping for a quick joining of Rielle’s and Tyen’s story lines in this book. For those that are new to the series, the first book, Thief’s Magic, is told through those two POVs with no apparent connection between them. In the first book they were essentially two completely separate stories being told alternately through the book. The separate story lines were not something that bothered me at all in the first book, but for those of you that were feeling a bit impatient wanting them to come together with the last book, I hate to inform you there is not a quick joining of the two. However, from the beginning of this second book it becomes much clearer how they might relate to each other. One of my chief impressions with the first book was how I was equally excited for both POVs. I enjoyed each so much I was slightly disappointed to switch to the other, only to quickly be excited to be back with that character. I found I continue to really enjoy both of the main characters and their stories in this one. If was pushed to pick favorites, I would say I probably preferred Tyen a bit more in the first book, but Rielle a bit more in this one. But the difference is really minute.

The Angel of Storms is a whirlwind of a book doused with magic, that shows no mercy, tests both loyalties and faith. It reveals a much clearer picture of the world, journeys to unexpected places, tests both protagonists to their limits and ends on a note that will leave you craving the next book. ( )

A second book in a series, that actually felt more like a first book, in its general feel.. Maybe because of the interesting tangent it takes, from the first? Still thinking... RTC ( )
