"Winter's crown may be heavy on your head.But you hold eternal spring in your heart." If someone of flesh and blood embodied the concept of a season, what would that life entail? I don't think that I ever got an answer to that simple question. That's my main bone to pick with this novel: things are never quite concrete. Our world has four seasons, each waning and renewing depending on the time of year. As their respective seasons, Jack, Fleur, Julio and Amber “manifest” them. They go through a cycle of hunting each other so that they may take over as the standing season at that moment, and send the one before them “home.” The season that is then eliminated is kept sleeping in stasis, after which time they awaken again, train, and then go out into the world to find and kill the season before them and repeat the cycle. They're immortal after Gaia gifts them with the power of their season at the moment of their human death.That's the gist that I got from what the book told me before things started to develop. Because, unfortunately, we don't really get a lot of information on how things occur. Yes, obviously, we know the basics of that which comes to pass during each season because we live these seasons in our every day lives. But as characters in this story, we never live any certain period of time during their “reigning” moment over their section of the world. I don't know what usually happens when Jack resides as Winter. Does he touch things and freeze them? Does he blow cold breath on people? Does he just walk around aimlessly, day to day, covered from head to toe in frost, and then go to sleep only to wake up and do it again the next day? We never get any insight into what it really means to be Winter, Spring, Summer or Autumn other than a peek of their abilities in times of crises.We are told, again and again, from the start of the novel, that Jack and Fleur are in love with each other. Because seasons are kept apart and are not allowed to bond with one another on penalty of torturous punishment that can end in a final death, this is forbidden. Jack and Fleur's romance never hit home for me. Yes, they are sweet together. Yes, they obviously fight to save each other. Yes, they have that Romeo and Juliet vibe going on. But I was more attached and fond of Amber and Julio's romantic moments because they got to flourish in front of me. Rather than have the point hammered home, I got to witnessed it. And because of that, it became more realistic for me. Throughout and nearly until the story's conclusion, I resisted Jack and Fleur. By the end, I accepted it almost to the point of it being brainwashed into me. There are a lot of things that feel incomplete about the book. I don't see how realistic it is that Chronos—who apparently sees into the future and can tell one's fate—doesn't pick up on the fact that a group of four seasons, along with their four handlers (those who partner up with them and are their protectors, and eyes and ears while on the field), are going to escape from a compound that has reportedly tight security. Even if they managed to slip past him, are there no cameras in there? They spend so much time monitoring them once they're out in the world, but apparently they don't keep a tight leash on them in the one place where they can also get together? No alarm goes off when a season breaks into an area that's not meant for them? No one keeps track of the employee smuggling these people out into the world? None of the spying bees and smazes that follow them around report back on what they're seeing? Okay then.Once they're out of the main compound, it's one thing after another. Don't get me wrong, I am incredibly fond of stories that move at a face pace, full of twists and turns with plenty of obstacles in the way of the leads when they try to accomplish a goal. But the action kept being thrown at these eight characters in a way that felt forced. As if the author felt that this needed to be as difficult as possible, rather than it happening organically. Wherever they go, they attract attention to themselves even without doing anything. There's always either a Gaia/Chronos agent nearby, or Chronos' guards are constantly finding them, or other seasons are trying to hunt them down as bounty, or humans find issue with them for no concrete reason. Rather than going on a smooth ride through the story, it was like being constantly jolted by rough breaks. Lyon and Gaia's use of Jack, Fleur, Amber and Julio to overtake Chronos felt shallow. Lyon subliminally feeds Jack the necessary information so that he may get the idea to escape (which Lyon more so refers to as a rebellion). Gaia puts the four of them in nearby areas because she assumes that they will be attracted to each other, and what do you know, what a coincidence that they are. I don't understand what is so special about Jack, Fleur, Amber and Julio. I still don't know what makes them the right people to help stir others into this take-down. Once again, I am being told to take this at face value, but I'm not given enough to believe in it.I had a very difficult time letting go and embracing this story. I wasn't fond of almost any character save for Amber and Julio at times, and Woody. The backgrounds for them were flat, and very lacking in detail or depth save for what was absolutely necessary to know in the moment. The chemistry between them as a tight group did develop as the novel progressed, and was believable as far as what comes to pass when a band of individuals is forced to work together in order to survive. This appears to be the first in a duology or series of books, though I'm doubtful on the necessity of this. The story ends without much room for further exploration, and everyone appears to be settled where they end up.

    YALL I'M GETTING SICK AND TIRED OF GETTING DISAPPOINTED OVER NEW RELEASES. I'm really disappointed with this one. It really met none of my expectations and it's so different from what I was expecting. I feel like everything was out of place and I just didn't like the worldbuilding or the pacing. I don't connect with the characters at all and it's just feel flat. I skimmed most part of the book since i felt like I didn't care anymore. ARC provided by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review

    What a unique story! When I started this, I thought the book setting was going to be set in a fantasy world. So this was actually unexpected. However, this was still really cool!! I loved the bond between Fleur and Jack!!! So swoony! The only thing I wish was different is in the beginning I would have liked for Jack and Fleur have to met for the first time or maybe seeing more back flashes of their history. Cosimano seriously knows how to write original works!

It had all the drama I was hoping for and the elemental magic that is the best!! Plus enemies to lovers, and enemies to friends!? Enemies who have to become friends or work together against a common enemy!? My favourite tropes! And I am now obsessed with all of these characters. I am TERRIFIED and ECSTATIC that there is going to be a second book!For the list of things that I loved about this book, where do I even begin!?- Enemies to lovers. SO MUCH of it! It's like the star crossed lovers idea meets enemies to lovers, but you just want them to be together!? At least I did. I was rooting for it. All of it.- Seasonal and elemental magic. Need I say more!?- The idea of found family.- These characters. I became so obsessed with them. I found them relatable in a few ways with things they had gone through. And they are all so strong and badass? But they also had these incredibly vulnerable and real moments that reminded you that they are human, they are teenagers and mostly just scared. It brought a real element to the story and the characters. I loved Jack's fierce loyalty, Fleur's incredible strength, Amber's badassness, and Julio's swagger and kindness. These characters and even their handlers have definitely been added to my long list of characters that I love and that inspire me.- To me, the pacing was so fantastic. There were amazing fight scenes that were balanced out with the incredibly real moments that characters faced internally and with each other. I thought it had a really good balance!- The last thing that I really appreciated about this book, was how the characters dealt with some incredibly hard topics. A lot of this book is about death - experiencing it, grieving people, coming to terms with it. And it was dealt with so well. As someone who has lost some very important people in my life, I thoroughly appreciated the way that the story and the characters approached the topic of death.A couple quick points for why I felt like I couldn't give it 5 stars:- I wish that we had gotten to see a bit more of the magic. There were some amazing fight scenes, but I felt like some of the magic used in them was glazed over at points. There were a few INCREDIBLE scenes for the magic, but I wish parts of it had been explained a bit more for how the elemental magic worked. The Seasons only had one element, but the Guards, who used to be Seasons, could have many? I guess some of that was a little confusing to me.- I absolutely loved the tropes and so many parts of this book, but there were specific plot points that felt a little bit too predictable to me. There were a couple really good twists, but some of the predictability for the bigger things took that away a little bit.Overall though, I really loved this book. I had a fantastic moment DMing with the author when I was posting reactions in my Instagram stories, and I have to say that Elle is absolutely lovely. I sincerely enjoyed my little chat with her, and she is so open to engaging with her readers and audience - something that I absolutely love to see from authors.I am so excited to gush about these characters when other people have read it - there is already character art on Elle's Insta that I am loving! And I spent probably an hour the other day crafting a playlist that corresponds in order to events and characters from the book. That is how much I loved it. While I am TERRIFIED for book 2 and what will happen to these characters, I am so excited to see where Elle will take them next!!I will say that if you are looking for a fantasy book that is light on the fantasy, meaning minimal magic and is set in our world, this is definitely going to be up your alley. It is fun and serious, has some favourite tropes and awesome characters, and some very well written scenes. Honestly, it would make a great movie...TRIGGER WARNINGS: suicide, death, deadly illness, alcohol

The world didn't make a lot of sense and I kept being like "what's going on and who's that" because there were so many things just thrown at me, including sci-fi-y stuff. I'm usually good at keeping up, but this one didn't work for me. It's unique, but, ultimately, not my thing.

    You can find this review on my blog Shades of Paper. “This is the one night you’re not leashed to that place. The one night you don’t have to answer to anyone. Don’t lose that nerve.” I was so excited to read this novel because it had such a unique and interesting synopsis, and I thought it was something right up my alley, so I couldn’t wait to read it, and I went into it with pretty high expectations, but unfortunately I think this is one of those cases where the concept sounded supe You can find this review on my blog Shades of Paper. “This is the one night you’re not leashed to that place. The one night you don’t have to answer to anyone. Don’t lose that nerve.” I was so excited to read this novel because it had such a unique and interesting synopsis, and I thought it was something right up my alley, so I couldn’t wait to read it, and I went into it with pretty high expectations, but unfortunately I think this is one of those cases where the concept sounded super cool but it was poorly executed.I think the story had a pretty interesting start. It didn’t take me long to get into it, and I was so intrigued from the very beginning to see where the story would go, but as I continued reading the book I became less and less engaged with it and started to lose interest in the plot and the characters.My main issue with Seasons of The Storm was that there was barely any world building and the magic system was so lacking. It’s supposed to be set in our world, but there was this “magical” organization that controlled the weather kind of, and there was no information about it at any point of the story. It seemed like there were different people controlling each season, but the author didn’t take any time to actually explain what each characters could do in each season, and their limitations and powers, and I think that could have added a lot of depth and more information for the reader to understand more this world. “Those who’ve seen a glimmer of your past may try to anticipate your choices, but unless they know your heart, they will always choose the future that suits their own needs.” My other issue was regarding the characters. I think, that despite our two main ones having an evolution throughout the story, nothing else happened to them. We barely got any information about their backstories and their interests and what they were like, and they were just so lacking in so many aspects. I didn’t connect with any of them, and I think that their arcs were so simple and boring that I lost interest in them before I reached the half mark of the book.There was some romance in this book as well, and I just wasn’t the biggest fan of it. My main problem was that because this kind of relationship started before the book started, and these two characters had already had feelings for each other, there was barely no build up so that it could be believable. These two characters didn’t had more than two interactions when we knew that they loved each other, and their dynamics were just so off and sometimes forced that my brain couldn’t understand how they could love each other when they had no chemistry whatsoever. “We know how the story’s supposed to end. But what if it doesn’t have to?” Something that I really enjoyed was the friendship formed throughout the novel with certain characters. I love me a good friendship and I think that what they were willing to do to protect one of them was pretty nice.The ending was a little bit of a let down. I feel the plot dragged a lot and not much was happening before the big scene in the last few chapters, and though I was hoping it could redeem the book a little bit for me, sadly I wasn’t super impressed with the outcome.Overall, I think Seasons of the Storm had such a strong and intriguing concept, but its execution lacked a lot of things. The characters were pretty boring and one dimensional, and the plot ended up not being what I was expecting, and I ended up being disconnected with the story and the characters.I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This doesn’t change my opinion whatsoever. All thoughts are my own.....Thank you HarperCollins and HarperTeen for the ARC.Blog | Twitter | Instagram | BlogLovin’

A perfect storm lies ahead. You can let it destroy you, or you can take control of it. How the story ends is up to you.”Seasons of the Storm was a phenomenal teen fantasy loaded with originality. At this point I've read quite a lot of this genre, and yet this story still managed to feel refreshingly new and engaging. It has forbidden love, rebellion against corrupt supernaturals in power, and an elemental magic system with humans who are the embodiments of seasons. It's all pretty heady and engrossing stuff. Jack and Fleur are the main characters in the forefront and we alternate between their POVs, but there is a full cast of "seasons" and "handlers" who eventually join forces to fight for their freedom. You also have the guards who are assigned to keeping order among the other two groups. They can manipulate elemental magic as well, but are generally more powerful in order to be able to maintain order through fear. Jack Sommers was a rebel in his human life, and that hasn't changed since he's become an eternal winter. He's the type to break the rules, test boundaries, and question everything. Once you accept Gaia's offer though, you have to live by her rules or you're terminated. Gaia and Chronos give life and power after death, but they can take it away at the smallest infraction. In this world, you're given only three choices: Whether you want to live, Who your handler is, and your new identity. The seasons' handlers are humans brought back to life who are immortal inside the Conservatory where they live. They guide their assigned season with their yearly assassinations. Their fates are tied together-if a season fails to do their job properly, it reflects on both of them. When you choose your new name, it must relate to the season you're given. As a winter, Jack's last name of Sommers was a red flag right from the start that he wasn't ready to blend in and keep his head down. At the start of the book you learn that Jack and Fleur are supposed to be enemies. In order for Spring to follow Winter, she must kill him every year and send him back to the Observatory in a state of stasis. The entire process is always monitored through video and audio, and any irregularities or failure to comply with the murder in a timely way will eventually lead to true death. They are all told that it's a necessary evil in order to keep the world and seasons in balance. But what if they've been lied to for centuries? Jack isn't so sure that the regimented life they live is all there is. He's hungry to find out if he could ever have an existence where he has choices and freedoms again. The seasons have continued to do what they're asked because they've been told that they need their stasis chambers and the ley lines to "recharge" themselves in order to reanimate. If they are not hooked into the system created for them, they're as good as dead anyway, so why bother to dream? An unplanned incident during one of Fleur's killings leads him to start investigating what he thinks are wild ideas at first. What if the entire notion of a rechargeable battery came from the potential chemical energy stored in every Season’s magic, because we were capable of recharging ourselves?The last thing Jack would call himself would be a leader or a hero. But once he sets the ball in motion the impact is bigger than he could have ever anticipated. He's not just putting his own neck on the line, it's his handler Chill, Fleur, Poppy, Amber, Woody, Julio, and Marie who must all fight to stay alive together on the run. Jack has an unexpected ally in a position of power who gives him glimpses of hope. Professor Lyon shows where his loyalties lie on different occasions by covering up Jack's indiscretions or even aiding him when he's in trouble. He is the only one who isn't afraid of revealing information that would otherwise be forbidden. Knowledge is power, and the key to everything. While he can't come right out and tell Jack things, he gives him the breadcrumbs to lead him to the destination point. This brings up my one niggle about the story. My one complaint would be the communication issue between Jack and the rest of the group, especially Fleur. Jack is given warnings frequently throughout the book, but for some unknown reason he conceals a lot from the others. Keeping things to himself prevents them from making decisions in an informed way. Honestly I didn't quite understand why he would even want to keep silent. During their time together the importance of them working as a team and communicating is more and more important the deeper they go. And yet he either doesn't tell them right away, or he hides things from Fleur and hopes that she will figure out what she has to do when the time comes. It didn't bother me that much, but plot wise I didn't see why he wouldn't be totally transparent since they're all on the same side. One thing I loved was that Fleur was wonderfully brave and much more powerful than she gave herself credit for. Maybe it was the fact that most others underestimated her abilities as well, but it took her some time to come to the realization that she was a true force to be reckoned with. At first, I thought that Amber's strong fighting skills put her at the top of the chain, but I was wrong. Each person had their own strengths and weaknesses, and Fleur's strength was her powerful ability to manipulate the earth. If you put all of their strengths together, they learned that they could not only protect themselves from what they feared the most, but they could inspire a full on revolution among the seasons. The romantic feelings between Jack and Fleur is already established from page one, which initially felt a little disappointing. But we do get to backtrack eventually and discover how they arrived at that point. She smells like wildflowers in moonlight, like forests of night blooms, and if I look at her again, I’m done. Game over.It was kind of crazy when you think about the fact that Jack was falling for the person perpetually killing him, but that unlikely pairing made it all the more interesting. Neither had blame or hate in their heart for the other, it was all about survival of the fittest in their world. Whomever conforms and plays the game the best will go the furthest. At some point, neither cares about furthering their status and position, they become more concerned about making things easier for each other. In addition to Fleur and Jack's romance behind the action, there are other connections as well which was nice. There was a lot of hidden machinations that are revealed, people getting moved like chess pieces in an unexpectedly long game. Loyalties and motivations are questioned, and Jack has to decide who he can trust. The last few chapters had me right on the edge of my seat, and I enjoyed every minute of it. The epilogue leaves you in a happy for now place, but unresolved in some aspects. I can see the solid potential for the next book, it's not going to just be filler pages for the characters. After being left where things are, there are surprising twists that I need to see played out. I will most definitely be continuing with the follow up whenever that may be. Let the sequel stalking commence. “I choose you,” I whisper against her hair. I’ll choose her, again and again, over everything else.FOLLOW SMOKIN HOT BOOK BLOG ON:
