Roar
Roar | Cora Carmack
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 worlds deadliest foes. As the sole heir of Pavan, Aurora's been groomed to be the perfect queen. Shes intelligent and brave and honorable. But shes yet to show any trace of the magic shell need to protect her people. To keep her secret and save her crown, Auroras 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. Hell 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 lacksstorm magic. And the people selling it? Theyre not Stormlings. Theyre 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 theres a third option for her future besides ruin or marriage. She might not have magic now, but she can steal it if shes brave enough. Challenge a tempest. Survive it. And you become its master.

This YA was fun and original. The story improves after the first few chapters. Good chemistry between the main characters makes up for the tame romantic parts. I intend to read the next in the series, as there were many loose ends.

Enjoyed this story of storm magic, royal intrigue, and some romance. Not big on the romance part but there was not tons of it. Roar is a princess but has no magic to protect her city. She goes looking for a way to get some. I‘ve already ordered the next book. It comes out in August. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Omg do I love this book! I am so relieved it lived up to the hype surrounding it.

I was so intrigued by the magic in this one, the storm magic. It's such a interesting, cool, unique concept and I ate up every tidbit of information given about it throughout the book.

I love Aurora, aka Roar. I love Locke. I love them together! Am I the only one that doesn't love Cassius? I just get "creepy jerk" feelings from him lol

5 stars!

So I started this one on a whim when I was on the plane, I don't remember even buying it on my Kindle. At first it was a little hard to get into and I'm still not entirely sure I understand how the magic works in this world BUT I ended up really liking it! It ends on such a cliffhanger that I am definitely going to pick up the next one!

Seekingtardis Agreeeeed! I did it on audio so I think that was easier but by the time I was 30% into it I was in love with the characters and intrigued by the world! 2y
PandaPanda @Seekingtardis yes! The next one should be really good now that everything is in place 2y
intothehallofbooks I‘m glad you mentioned the cliffhanger! Oh man. I want to read this but now I definitely need the next book on hand! 2y
PandaPanda @intothehallofbooks I would wait. I think if I had known the next book wasn't out yet I would have waited. I think it comes out pretty soon! 2y

Looky here, it is little miss unpopular opinion. I have serious thoughts on this book. To be fair, the magic is awesome, I would have loved it if that was what it was about. Unfortunately, it is about horny characters. I don‘t read “will they won‘t they” books for a reason. I kept waiting for more fantasy...
I mean, it is fine but not my cup of tea.

🌟🌟🌟🌟 loved it! It was a little hard getting into at first but after about the first 2.5 hours I was totally hooked! I need book two! It‘s projected release date isn‘t until mid 2019 😭 sad panda. It‘s a good ya that will give you some angsty feels but a fantastic syfy that will leave you wanting to have your own powers! Also, that cover!!! Droolllllll🤤

BethM I bailed before it got good then. It was just soooo angsty at the beginning that I couldn't handle it. 2y

Shaila Hospital? Oh no, hope you're recovering well! I love losing myself in an audiobook when I have tons of cleaning to do! 2y
Seekingtardis @Shaila my husband was in the hospital with pancrititis and we learned he had diabetes. He‘s doing much much better! Audiobooks are pretty much the only reason I get anything done lol. 2y

LOVE - the only way I can describe my feelings toward this book! Not a ton went down in this book exactly, but it was all clearly set up for the sequel. And oh my gosh the romance~ in this was swoon-worthy. Aurora was a strong (and at times a v stubborn) character, which made the story that much better. And if my review didn‘t convince you, I also finished this book in less that 24 hours. THAT good. 🌪

I think I liked the book, but I also wasn‘t motivated to read this quickly; I wanted to be done with it, but I didn‘t want to read it. I wish she‘d given Cassius more of a chance and fought for what us gets before she ran off too.

At first, I was having a hard time convincing myself I liked Aurora. One minute, I thought she was a great heroine, the next she drove me bonkers. Eventually, she won me over. On the other hand, I adored most of the other characters and thought the world building and storyline were great. Overall, enjoyed the story very much and am really looking forward to the second book! #LitsyAtoZ #R

What a story! Aurora/Rora/Roar is an amazing character, she is strong in her own way and rather courageous. I can't wait to see her future.... Her character will grow in future books, there is no doubt about that... But let's face it, the leading lady can sometimes be outdone by the leading man.. So.... Cassius and Locke.... Hot and Strong.. every girls dream!
Highly recommended.

I can't rave about this book enough, it is the perfect fantasy romance about a super cool magical world of sentient storms and political intrigue. Loosely described as a Sleeping Beauty retelling, Aurora is wide awake but her magic ability is asleep, and she must go on a journey to discover more about her world if she is to save her kingdom from corruption. This book fills my ACOMAF and Kricket series void and I am so happy I picked it up!
