~Waiting on Wednesday~ Roar (Stormheart #1)

                “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.  Basically books that are not yet out that we are dying to get our hands on.  This week’s pick is:

Roar (Stormheart #1) by Cora Carmack
Out:  6/13

From Goodreads:
                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.

Why I’m Waiting:
                This whole concept sounds super thrilling reminding me a bit of Twister.  I like the idea of the princess going out and fighting for her power.


                What are you waiting on?  Tell me below what you think of this title and leave a link to your WoW as well so I can check it out.
