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.--

This book helped get me out of a reading funk! Cora Carmack does a great job adding something new to YA Fantasy with this novel. I was immediately intrigued by the magic filled storms and the people who conquered them, and okay, I may also have completely lusted after hunky Locke. Yes, having a romantic thread could potential make this book cliche but with Carmack's expertise in writing romances she knows just how to make me fall in love.

It was ok, but the romance dragged the story down a bit for me. Two and half stars.

Being someone who very rarely reads paranormal, a story has to really intrigue me to make me want to read it. When I heard Cora was writing a YA paranormal, I knew I would read it since she is one of my must buy authors. When I found out the premise of the story and she released a teaser, I was very much looking forward to it. I was not disappointed. Cora has created a unique and intriguing world full of twists and turns that will grip you until the very last page and leave you wanting more. Whether you're a Cora fan, a paranormal fan, a YA fan or not, you're going to want to add ROAR to your must reads!
