Waiting on Wednesday #14: Roar by Cora Carmack

Hi everyone! Welcome to another "Waiting on Wednesday" post (meme hosted by Breaking the Spine!). 

This week I am waiting on:

Roar by Cora Carmack

YA Fantasy
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.
I had seen this book around the Twitterverse but it wasn't until I read the full blurb in Eileen's blog BookCatPin that I knew I had to read this book! Honestly, my attention was caught with the whole 'marry a dark and brooding Stormling prince' and although it sounds like he won't be the main love interest, I still feel extremely curious for the Stormlings and in a dire need to meet him ♥. Oh, and I also want to meet Aurora, of course. She sounds awesome!

What are you waiting on this week? :)

    1. Yay!! Hope you loved it??? The cover is so amazing ♥

  2. This one sounds really great! I love storms and stormy-related things (though not the damage they incur), so I'm super intrigued by this premise. :)

    1. Right? I love how powerful these stories get when faced with nature wrath (but totally agree that it's tough reading about the damage).

  3. Yayyyy I'm so excited you're excited too!!! Can't wait! :D
