We Unleash The Merciless Storm by Tehlor Kay Mejia
Expected on February 25th, 2020
Published by Katherine Tegen Books
In this nail-biting sequel to Tehlor Kay Mejia’s critically acclaimed fantasy novel We Set the Dark on Fire, La Voz operative Carmen is forced to choose between the girl she loves and the success of the rebellion she’s devoted her life to.
Being a part of the resistance group La Voz is an act of devotion and desperation. On the other side of Medio’s border wall, the oppressed class fights for freedom and liberty, sacrificing what little they have to become defenders of the cause.
Carmen Santos is one of La Voz’s best soldiers, taken in when she was an orphaned child and trained to be a cunning spy. She spent years undercover at the Medio School for Girls, but now, with her identity exposed and the island on the brink of civil war, Carmen returns to the only real home she’s ever known: La Voz’s headquarters.
There she must reckon with her beloved leader, who is under the influence of an aggressive new recruit, and with the devastating news that her true love might be the target of an assassination plot. Will Carmen break with her community and save the girl who stole her heart—or fully embrace the ruthless rebel she was always meant to be?
We Set The Dark On Fire completely destroyed me when I listened to the audiobook back in May. It was one of those books that make you scream when it’s over because, “Where is the rest of it?!” And to think it’s only a duology so this is the end? I just really need to know what happens in We Unleash The Merciless Storm right now!
I’m so excited to read from Carmen’s POV, too. I love Dani, but I also love Carmen. Honestly, I think getting her side of the story is going to add so much.
Unfortunately, the ARCs for this are super scarce (which I totally understand!) So I doubt I’ll get an early copy. HOWEVER! I loved Kyla Garcia’s narration in WSTDOF and I think she’s narrating Merciless Storm, too. So I’m pretty content with waiting for the audiobook. I’m pretty sure I’m going to love it. Side note: If you haven’t read WSTDOF, I totally recommend that you do! There’s still plenty of time before the sequel/ending comes out!
