Roar by Cora Carmack – a review by Melissa

Aurora is a person with a lot of secrets. As the heir to a kingdom where ruling means protecting the people from violent magic-fuelled storms, she is supposed to be very powerful.

But she isn’t. So she has been secluded from everyone but her mother to hide this secret long enough for her to make a powerful match with the Thorne king’s son. She wishes for anything but being shoved to the background while her betrothed takes over.

Then she meets a handsome young storm hunter and follows him into a whole new world – her life as Roar, a strong, powerful storm calmer.

I adore strong heroines. And a heroine who can hold her own in a world where she doesn’t have the same advantages is a strong one. Roar knows how to fight (she asked her guards to teach her), she’s well-read, smart and compassionate. She is no damsel in distress.

Carmack has built a world, populated it with interesting characters and written it with very enjoyable prose.

It is YA, so no hot and steamy sexy time as Carmack has previously written (NA romance). But I was so busy with the story I didn’t notice that Roar was young (there are pretty big odds that’ll make you mature fast) or that they were relatively chaste.

On my Goodreads, I gave it 5/5 stars. The only thing I’m gutted about is that to have to wait so long for the sequel.
