Seasons of the Storm is a mind-boggling mix of mythology, nature, competition, and powerfully original characters. I couldn't read this book fast enough--captivating on every level.--Megan Shepherd, New York Times bestselling author
[A] fast-paced mythological fantasy. Cosimano uses the rhythm of nature to create a whirlwind of romance and friendship that illustrates both the power of choice and the strength in differences.--Publishers Weekly
Cosimano tells a story of the bonds of friendship and the power of hope for the future. The themes of friendship despite differences and self-sacrifice shine through.--Kirkus Reviews
With lots of action and an exploration of when and how much to trust those in authority, the story asks whether you will be the user or the used.--Booklist

In the world of the Seasons, life is lived in three month chunks out in the world. The rest of the year is spent in stasis and recovery in the underground base controlled by time (Chronos) and nature (Gaia). Locked into an eternal cycle that Chronos tells them can not be broken, and with no contact other than that of hunter and prey, the Seasons believe that they are mortal enemies. But when Jack, a Winter, falls for Fleur, his Spring, he works on a plan for them to be together.
I was immersed in the world from the first page, and was kept guessing as Jack gathers other Seasons to support him as he breaks free from the cycle and seeks to live a normal life with Fleur. But challenging Chronos makes it hard to hide, and their love threatens to destroy the natural order of the world. With an echo of Romeo and Juliet, Jack and Fleur are forced to overcome time and face death in order to stay together.
Merging action-filled fantasy with tinges of romantic tragedy, Seasons of the Storm kept me engaged to the unexpected ending. I look forward to reading the sequel.
The story ended well and In now looking forward to the sequel Seasons of Chaos.
