Blurb from Goodreads:

In the action-packed sequel to Rebel Wing, Aris battles for life and love . . . and not everyone will survive.
Aris Haan gave up everything to join the Atalantan Military: her family, her boyfriend, even her identity. In the end, though, it didn’t matter that she was a war hero. When the all-male Military discovered that she was actually a woman, she was sent home and erased from history.

Now she has a chance to go back to the battlefield—as herself. But as hard as it was to be a soldier in disguise, it’s even more difficult now. The men in her unit undermine her at every turn. The Safaran army has spies everywhere, perhaps even on Aris’s stationpoint. And she’s falling for her mysterious superior officer, Milek. But their relationship is forbidden, just stolen moments between training sessions and missions. There’s no room for love in war.

Then Aris discovers that Safara’s leaders have set their sights on her, Atalanta’s hero. And she must find them before they find her . . .

My Review:

3.5/5 stars

Aris Haan is back home in Lux after saving Ward Vadim. Women are now allowed into the military and Major Vidar wants Aris back as a Lieutenant. After a while she agrees but not everyone is pleased that women are able to fight which Aris finds out first hand from the men in her unit.
Will Aris be able to find Elom, the Safaran man who tortured Ward Vadim and scarred Aris?
Will Aris act on her growing feelings for Major Vidar?
Will Atalanta be able to continue the war against Safara and the dangerous Ward that rules there?

This was a good sequel but I didn't enjoy it as much as the first book. While not much seemed to happen there was a good blend of action and romance.
I love the characters in this series so I enjoyed reading as they reacted to whatever the author threw at them. Aris is a relatable and likeable protagonist. She has grown so much since the start of the first book - she's a lot stronger and more confident.
The plot was good and held my attention and I can't wait for the next book.

Overall this was an enjoyable read and a good sequel.
