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.

Roar was such a fascinating and captivating book. I was sucked in from the first page of this book, and the ending left me eager for more. 

The plot of Roar was unique and extremely interesting. I loved the concept of controlling storms and stealing the heart of the storm. Every time something new was revealed, I found myself becoming more and more fascinated with this story. The author created such an intricate and immersive world that I got lost in. I cannot wait to learn more about this new world in the future books. I WANT TO LIVE IN THIS MAGICAL AND AMAZING WORLD!

I also liked how much action this book had. The action involving the storms had me on the edge of my seat! As much as I liked the plot of the book, I did feel like some things got a little repetitive, but the book definitely held my interest as a whole. 

The main character, Aurora, was such a delightful character. I was worried that she was just going to be an average special snowflake type character. I was extremely excited when she was so much more than that. She was such a kind, determined, tough, and smart character. I really connected with her and I was rooting for her the entire time. I ended the book feeling like I gained a new best friend. 

There were also a lot of diverse and interesting side characters. Each character was unique and I ended up loving all of them. I loved the squad vibes that the characters gave in this book! I bonded with all the characters and they all have stolen my heart. I hope to learn more about the side characters in the next books because I think we have more to discover about them. 

I especially fell in love with two of the main male characters in this book. They were both extremely swoon-worthy and wonderful characters. I don't want to spoil anything, but one of those males was a very morally gray character, which I was LIVING FOR. He was extremely cunning, and he gave me so many Slytherin vibes. He wasn't as prominent as I would have liked in this book, so I hope he plays a more important role in the upcoming books! I SERIOUSLY LOVE HIM SO MUCH.

I don't want to spoil anything about the romance in this book, but I really enjoyed the romance. At first, the romance felt a bit like insta-love because the characters seemed a bit obsessive, but then the romance actually slowed down. The romance then starting developing at a more believable pace and it became a lot more alluring. The romance was full of swoon-worthy moments and steamy kisses that made my heart soar. I am hoping to see it develop more in the next book. I WANT MORE KISSES!!!!!

But, also, I ship Roar with my Slytherin baby more so I am HIGHKEY hoping that happens in book two. *fingers crossed*

Overall, this was a fast-paced and enchanting novel! I would recommend this to people who are looking for an intriguing fantasy filled with romance!
