    1. I'm working on a real review, but here are some feelings I had while reading this awful book.This book is so dry, and boring I felt like I was reading it forever - not just three days.(I know that feeling, Rose)The characters are just as dull, bland, and flat as they were in Changeling.To Luca, Isolde, Freize, and Ishraq:I made it to 65 pages before the end before I had to say:Will I ever, ever read another book in this series?If I am ever tempted to read the forthcoming sequel(s), even for a ha [...]


    2. Update: Upon starting the third book after a few years since I read this one, I've realised that I've simply lost interest in the series and I can't get into it any more. There's always a reason when I don't feel the need to pick up the next book within a year!~~~I really liked this second book! The characters – mainly Luca and Isolde – can be a little unlikeable at times, but it must be understood that they are very much creations of their time, and it's done very well. I love Ishraq, she i [...]


    3. Rating Clarification: 3.5 starsIn the second installment of the Order of Darkness, Luca, Freize, Isolde and Ishraq continue on their journey through Christendom where Luca is chartered with investigating for the church the ‘end of days’. They come across a children’s crusade with leads to tragedy, natural disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis and ultimately the slave galley raids that drive Luca to wonder where his parents might be. Because of the destruction of the tsunami and earthq [...]


    4. Disclaimer: I received a copy of this novel from the publisher in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.My Summary: When Luca, Isolde, and their companions set out on their journey, they never expected to be swept up in the strange superstitious fears of a tiny town along the road. Approached by a self-proclaimed 'saint' and a group of wayward children, the five are baffled to discover the townspeople fear well, almost everything.Instructed by the Order to investigate this wild claim, Luca, [...]


    5. Pasaules gala gaidas turpinās, ir 1453. gads, Konstantinopole ir kritusi, bērni dodas Krusta karā, un pasaule ir dīvainu zīmju pilna. Tumsas ordenis ir gatavs darīt visu, lai novērstu pasaules galu, taču, lai to izdarītu viņiem ir nepieciešama informācija. Galvenokārt viņus interesē mistiski, pārdabiski un neizskaidrojami atgadījumi, bet tādu atrašanu nevar uzticēt lētticīgiem ļautiņiem. Te ir vajadzīgs racionāls cilvēks, kas aiz māņiem spēj saskatīt lietu patieso [...]



    6. I liked this book, but it wasn't as good as the first in the series (Changeling). The characters developed a lot more, and a lot of the fun of the book was them interacting with each other. The story focused on the event of the children's crusade and an enormous tidal wave, which had a profound impact on everyone, but I felt that there could have been more to the story plot-wise. There were many events related to the inquiries Luca goes on that were too drawn out, and in place of this, there cou [...]


    7. Quase um ano depois de ter lido o primeiro volume da saga "Ordem das Trevas" peguei no "Filhas da Tempestade" com grandes expectativas.Mesmo não estando ao nível dos outros livros de Philippa Gregory, "Predestinado", trouxe algumas surpresas. O facto de ser uma história completamente tirada da cabeça da escritora, com personagens que não existiram e que tiveram de ser criadas de raíz atraiu-me de uma maneira incrível. Isso e o facto de eu adorar romance histórico!Quando peguei neste segu [...]


    8. Tenho gostado muito mais de todos os outros livros da Philippa Gregory do que destes da Ordem da Trevas. Ainda assim, gostei mais deste do que do primeiro da série. Adorei conhecer um pouco mais todas as personagens e, ao contrário do que aconteceu no fim do Predestinado, fiquei com vontade de ler o próximo da série. Para além das personagens serem interessantes, houve uns momentos, no meio e no fim do livro, que me conseguiram prender totalmente.


    9. I wanted to put this novel down quite a while ago, but my love of Philippa Gregory kept me reading. I rarely ditch a book, but there was just too much religious drudgery too proceed. The writing dragged on slower than molasses and the mystery fell flat. Philippa Gregory is a writer of great talent but this young adult series just missed the mark. 1.5/5


    10. Diese und weitere Rezensionen findet ihr auf meinem Blog Anima Libri - BuchseeleRezensionsexemplar, zur Verfügung gestellt vom Verlag im Austausch für eine ehrliche Rezension ♥In diesem zweiten Band der "Order of Darkness"-Trilogie von Philippa Gregory, "Sturmbringer", reist die Gruppe um den Novizen und päpstlichen Ermittler Luca und die verstoßene Fürstin Isobel weiter durch die christliche Welt, auf der Suche nach rätselhaften Vorkommen und Anzeichen für das kommende Ende der Welt un [...]


    11. Y'all,this is over 500 pages spent with these characters with literally 0 development.None.Nada.Not a thing.There remains simply one character that I actually like,my beloved Ishraq,whose writing is pretty inconsistent at times,but who remains my one light in the darkness of this book.I also found myself shockingly rooting for Freize (honestly more out of the need to find something to keep myself entertained and engaged more than anything else),but EH.I humanly cannot stand Luca and find him to [...]


    12. I enjoyed this book as a holiday read. Easy to read and follow. Did not realise it was the second in a series, but I soon gathered the story. Deciding whether to read the next one.



    13. Full Review seen on my blog @ Dee's ReadsI am a fan of historical fiction, but it’s something that I feel I always forget about. I am also a big fan of paranormal and fantasy and they’re like the older and louder siblings in the genre family of my tastes. So while in the past I have read a few of Philippa Gregory’s books, and really enjoyed them I might add, I don’t always get to delve deeper. When I saw she was writing a YA series of historical fiction with bits of magic in them, I leap [...]


    14. I was so excited to be able to get back into this world created by author, Philippa Gregory. I didn’t realize how much I missed the characters in the book until I was thrown back into their adventure, especially Freize. This guy was constantly making me laugh out loud and giggle.The five travelling companions are continuing their journey together, and the attraction between Isolde and Luca are becoming more and more obvious. I, personally, love the start crossed lovers theme happening here…w [...]


    15. What an incredible book that never let up at all. After reading Changeling, I had high expectations that the sequel would be just as thrilling as Changeling and it was in some ways a lot better. The story and pacing seemed to be much more crisp and faster. Being that this was the second book in a quartet, means that the characters have to be even stronger than they were in the first book. What I like about this book is that there are very strong Christian elements and themes to this book. I felt [...]


    16. Disclaimer: I received a free edition of this book from the publishers as in conjunction with a giveaway.Ok, now I've got that out of the way, let's get on with the review.As you can see from my rating, I thought that this book was ok. As with the previous book in the series, it is a quick and easy read.So, what did I like about the book? As opposed to the previous book, this book has just the one setting where the action took place, so it felt like one continuous story, instead of some smaller [...]


    17. Five stars whereChangeling got a 4- and a 4 only because Frieze was dryly hilarious, Luca young but self-possessed, and the setting was in the medieval period, one of my favorite time periods.Stormbringers gets five stars because 1) it has a MUCH better plot, one much more interesting and less microscopic thanChangeling's small town feral child; 2) loved the author's clever use of a natural phenomenon- the tidal wave- to explain the miraculous "parting of the sea"; 3) Ishraq rocks! Something gro [...]


    18. Frustrating, so frustrating, as with the first book the author has decided to end the main body of the plot around sixty pages before the book finishes. The problems are resolved, the mystery solved and inquiry dealt with. Then bang! Let’s introduce a new plot arc: a new problem with new characters.Why?, To set up for the sequel of course. The only problem with this is the ending of the book falls flat. The sequel hints should be plastered in with the main plot because after the main plot is r [...]


    19. La lecture souffre toujours d'une écriture trop lisse et placide (l'auteur infantilise son lecteur, c'est dommage). Cela reste donc le point faible de cette série, pourtant soucieuse du détail historique et pourvue d'une élégance noble et très appréciable. L'histoire aussi est beaucoup plus intéressante, assez crédible, voire intrigante sur plusieurs points. Même les considérations amoureuses m'ont fait doucement sourire. Bref, c'est gentillet, cela se lit vite, on passe un bon moment [...]


    20. What a great sequel, though things have changed, and how easily they changed their minds! And it was quite sad, what happened, though it could've been sadder, we got him back! Interesting, what the leader did, and I can't wait for the next book!!


    21. Just as great as the first one. (view spoiler)[When Frieze went missing I wept shamelessly. I just couldn't believe it. I was so happy when he turned up again - happy enough that I could ignore the sheer convenience. (hide spoiler)]


    22. Love all of these books so far! Excited for book 4. I just love the historical and religious feel to it as well as the forbidden love/romance.



    23. I found this book a little boring. It didn't have a strong story line and I am hoping the next book in the series is better. I really enjoyed the first book in the series. This felt like a filler.



    24. A solid 3 star performance, which is what I think I gave the first one. I did think this one had a better plot than Changeling, but I think the problems I had with it are the same for this one too.Firstly, the story continues pretty much where it was left off with Luca, Isolde, Peter, Ishraq and Frieze travelling together. They stop at a small seaside town with the intent of hiring a boat to take them somewhere in southern a bit quicker than they could ride. Then it opens up into the weirdness o [...]


    25. In this second book in the series, Luca and his friends are still traveling throughout Europe trying to find proof of the end of days. Luca is a part of secret religious order and has been picked as an inquirer. His task is to seek out the supernatural and see if there are signs of the end of days. In this book, Luca and his friends happen upon a group of children, hundreds of them, heading to Jerusalem on foot. Luca decides to investigate to determine if this could be a sign and if it is a true [...]


    26. I really liked this book until the end. It felt like an unfinished story. In 1453 in Italy, the four travelers are growing closer. They meet a holy boy who seems to know things about each of the group and the city. He is leading many children to Jerusalem. They are begging as they go. He says the sea will part and he will lead the children to Jerusalem. When the sea begins to go out, the children run after him to the sea and follow the water. Unfortunately, the water comes back in crashing into [...]
