New York Times bestselling author Cora Carmack's young adult debut: Roar.

In a land ruled and shaped by violent magical storms, power lies with those who control them.

Aurora Pavan comes from one of the oldest Stormling families in existence. Long ago, the ungifted pledged fealty and service to her family in exchange for safe haven, and a kingdom was carved out from the wildlands and sustained by magic capable of repelling the world’s deadliest foes. As the sole heir of Pavan, Aurora's been groomed to be the perfect queen. She’s intelligent and brave and honorable. But she’s yet to show any trace of the magic she’ll need to protect her people.

To keep her secret and save her crown, Aurora’s mother arranges for her to marry a dark and brooding Stormling prince from another kingdom. At first, the prince seems like the perfect solution to all her problems. He’ll guarantee her spot as the next queen and be the champion her people need to remain safe. But the more secrets Aurora uncovers about him, the more a future with him frightens her. When she dons a disguise and sneaks out of the palace one night to spy on him, she stumbles upon a black market dealing in the very thing she lacks—storm magic. And the people selling it? They’re not Stormlings. They’re storm hunters.

Legend says that her ancestors first gained their magic by facing a storm and stealing part of its essence. And when a handsome young storm hunter reveals he was born without magic, but possesses it now, Aurora realizes there’s a third option for her future besides ruin or marriage.

She might not have magic now, but she can steal it if she’s brave enough.

Challenge a tempest. Survive it. And you become its master.


Thank you Tor Teen for sending me a copy of Roar for review. This in no way affected my opinion. 

I took my time reading Roar and marking every quote or scene I wanted to remember. Roar was so swoon worthy and I am not going to lie I loved Rora and Cassius relationship but still swooned for Locke in the end. 

Roar had such great character and world development but most stunning was Cora's in depth and beautiful descriptions of the storms themselves. I have always been drawn to twisters and have read a couple YA fantasy books with storms but I have never read one that actually went as detailed into the way the storms build and the beauty even in the face of destruction. 

You know when you mark a book with 37 quotes that you felt were breathtaking then that book has made it's mark. Rora was such a fierce character who really grows from being naive to having to learn the trials her kingdom has faced and how sheltered she really has been. 

Cassius is my misunderstood bad boy and I so need more from his POV. I loved how complex he was and how I think he saw right through Rora. Just so many misunderstandings between him and Rora had me wanting to fix everything for them.

Cora Carmack this was stunning and thank you for writing such a fantastic world. This is a must read and I can not wait for more.
