As immortal Seasons, Jack and Fleur wielded powerful magic in their roles as a Winter and a Spring. yet there wasn’t magic strong enough to keep them apart, and they risked everything for their love, for the freedom to live their lives as they choose – together.

That choice came at a cost, and Jack had to sacrifice his Winter magic – and his immortality. Although he’d do anything for Fleur, he can’t deny the emptiness he’s felt since.

And the world they thought they left behind is still dealing with the fallout of the battle. With Professor Lyon as the new Chronos, Seasons are free to do as they please. But not everyone is happy with the change in leadership. When an old enemy seeks revenge, immense magic runs wild and unchecked, creating chaos everywhere.

Thrust into the middle of a new war, Jack and Fleur are again forced to choose between their freedom and saving the world from the storm.

[Seasons of the Storm #1 Review]

Seasons of Chaos is the final novel in the Seasons of the Storm duology. Although Amber and Julio are not as prominent in this novel, they were still a part of the story. With the shift in power at the end of the previous novel, the Seasons and our characters now have to adjust. However, there is a new villain on the horizon who wants the power for himself. A new war begins and our characters must find a way to stop him. As this story is a continuation of the previous novel, this review will contain some spoilers from the previous.

Jack is a former Winter, who has lost his magic from events at the end of Seasons of the Storm. Additionally, he also lost his immortality and now is trying to adjust to his new life with Fleur, who still has her Spring magic. He is determined to still keep an eye on Fleur and keep her safe. He is also still determined to do everything himself and continues to think that he is the one who can solve everything. For me, it was disappointing as this was a character trait from the first novel and it does not seem that he learned much from all the experiences.

When the new villain takes Fleur, Jack must figure out how to band everyone together to rescue her and make everything right again. This novel continues to be told from the perspectives of Fleur and Jack with the villain also being introduced in a new third perspective. I loved having this third point of view as it was nice to see the story from both sides. It was really interesting to get into his head and try to figure out his end game and if he would actually achieve it.

Overall, I enjoyed this novel more than the previous as it wrapped up everything nicely and gave more insight into some of the characters. The novel starts off slow as Jack and Fleur adjust to life after the first novel. Once the new obstacle presents itself, the book picks up speed and stays pretty steady until the end.  While it was nice to get to know the characters over the course of two novels, I would have enjoyed this more as a standalone. If the two stories were combined into one novel, some of the subplots could have been streamlined a little more to make an excellent story.  As it stands, this was an interesting conclusion to the duology and I may not reread this one, but I would be interested to see what else the author has to offer.
