A fantastic magical journey
With her Debut YA fantasy, Cora Carmack takes us on a spectacular journey, where we follow a young princess trying to find her magic. As future queen with no magic that could be problematic. With the risk of someone finding out being to great, she sets off with hunters as she tries to find her magic in hopes of returning home with it.
From start to finished I was enthralled with this story. I’m talking heart pounding, gut-wrenching, could’t put it down enthralled.
Roar’s fight and fire had me rooting for her to find her magic from the get out. I truly felt something from every character, whether it be love, compassion, anger, distrust it was all there for me.
It was action packed and had it’s soft tender moments as well. This book was everything I wanted and more! To say Cora Carmack knocked it out of the park with this debut YA fantasy is an understatement.
I can not wait to see what book two has in store for us.

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.
