    I took my time reading Roar and marking every quote or scene I wanted to remember. Roar was so swoon worthy and I am not going to lie I loved Rora and Cassius relationship but still swooned for Locke in the end. Roar had such great character and world development but most stunning was Cora's in depth and beautiful descriptions of the storms themselves. I have always been drawn to twisters and have read a couple YA fantasy books with storms but I have never read one that actually went as detailed into the way the storms build and the beauty even in the face of destruction. You know when you mark a book with 37 quotes that you felt were breathtaking then that book has made it's mark. Rora was such a fierce character who really grows from being naive to having to learn the trials her kingdom has faced and how sheltered she really has been. Cassius is my misunderstood bad boy and I so need more from his POV. I loved how complex he was and how I think he saw right through Rora. Just so many misunderstandings between him and Rora had me wanting to fix everything for them. Cora Carmack this was stunning and thank you for writing such a fantastic world. This is a must read and I can not wait for more.

    Storm magic, self discovery and adventure - yes!

    “Challenge a tempest, survive it, and you become its master.” – The Tale of Lord Finneus Wolfram Cora Carmack’s Roar is churning with intriguing danger and crackling electricity like the storms it seeks to conquer in its pages. The idea of a world so wrought with storms that they must be challenged to be defeated, and that there are humans capable of wielding their power has a great promise for action and magic. And that’s exactly what you get as this journey begins. Aurora comes from a long line of Stormlings, who reign over lands as royalty and offer protection to its citizens. Rora, however, has no magic of her own and must marry a Stormling Prince from another land in order to preserve her family name. And if her secret, her familial shame of being born without magic is discovered before the marriage, all could be lost. A chance meeting changes Rora’s story, the very possibility for being the princess that her mother and people have always needed her to be. Can she challenge a storm to gain her own power? “And what you said earlier, about feeling like you were in the wrong life? I’ve felt that too. Felt it right up until the moment I decided to stop trying to run from storms and hunt them instead. I know what it looks like when someone finds the life they were meant to have.” This world immediately had me tangled into it’s effortless dialogue, beautiful world-building and strained relationships. The storms themselves are mesmerizing in their description, being nearly sentient in their ability to seek out and destroy. Having lived to long in an area that has unpredictable, and at times extreme, weather… I could feel and appreciate the temperament of the different storms meandering through the pages. And all the while, I still felt a greater connection of the tempests with the plot itself. Each incident leads you to dwell on the delicious suspicions that surround their magic and Aurora’s magic-less body. The aptly named Rage season exposes the readers to a gambit of emotions, from anger to despair, playfulness to wanting–it is a non-stop thrilling ride through the cities and wildlands of Caelira as Aurora seeks answers and confidence. “Sometimes she was Aurora. Confident. Clever. Cultured. Sometimes she was Rora. Afraid. Alone. Ashamed. And more and more, she was Roar–bold, brash, and increasingly baffled by the situation in which she found herself.” I particularly enjoyed the multiple POV in this book as more and more interesting characters were introduced, including a stunning villain who wields terrible power and yet we have to wonder what their true motivation is… is their ill-will justified in some odd way? And can anyone stop the oncoming destruction? I feel like everyone has a back story in this world, and it is welcome. The more Roar, the better. I cannot wait to see how the rest of Carmack’s series unfolds! This first book in the left me wanting more and more. Her practiced hand at building romantic tension shined in the later chapters, reminiscent of some other recent popular YA/NA crossovers (but without heading into NA territory). Highly recommended read for those who love fantasy, adventure and romance. Eagerly waiting for the next chapter.

    Gorgeous Cover and Amazing Story!

    I fell in love with Roar's cover first. Then I fell in love with the story itself. For me, Roar was a slow read that I wanted to take time and savor every minute of. The idea of the storms having power and the Stormlings having to use magic to defend against them was truly unique. More so, I loved Locke and the other storm hunters. They reminded me of real life storm chasers that follow twisters - crazy, brave people that get right in there with the storm. Locke's crew was well developed and I loved each of them - except maybe Sly. I only wish we could have seen more of them interacting with Roar individually, other than mainly Duke, Locke, and Jinx. As for Cassius, I'm not sure that I saw him as a villain really. I almost kind of wished he would have been sincere and could have built a life with Roar, but it wasn't meant to be. It was great being able to see things in his perspective though, as well as in Novaya, Roar, and Locke's perspectives - and the mysterious Stormlord. Overall, I loved Roar. This book is well rounded, with romance for the people like me that can't live without it and plenty of action, adventure, and magic to please all fantasy lovers. Our seemingly unmagical heroine, Aurora, reminded me of Anna in Rosalyn Eves's Blood Rose Rebellion and the savage Stormlord gives hint toward Sarah J. Maas's Erawan in the Throne of Glass series and I can't wait to watch this series continue to take shape, to see what challenges wait for Aurora upon her return to Pavan and how learning who she truly is will affect the way that the hunters see her.

    Loved it

    Usually when I write a review I build up to saying how much I enjoyed the book, but with Roar I'm just going to throw it out there - I flipping loved it! Roar is a delicious mix of YA fantasy yumminess, bad ass characters and a slow burning potential, yes, potential romance. You didn't really expect me to give anything away did you? Aurora is a Stormling Princess and future ruler, but as you can probably tell from the blurb she's lacking something really important for a future Stormling Queen. Her mother's solution? Marry a powerful foreign Prince of course. What could possibly go wrong? I honestly can't decide whether I'd want to live in Pavan or not. On the one hand there's the chance of having special powers and battling powerful storms, but on the other it's kinda terrifying and a completely unequal society. I loved Rora. She's unintentional hilarious. Seriously the girl is awkward! I'm not sure what it says about me but whenever she'd stubbornly try to do something new I was waiting to see what could possibly happen to her next. To be honest I think this is why I liked her so much. Yes she's sheltered and naive, but she tries hard and honestly wants the best for everybody in the Kingdom. Hence a trip to the black market and one heck of an adventure. On to Locke. He's custom-made to be a great BBF! He's protective, kinda surly and powerful. Oh and not forgetting he's super handsome. Locke carries a lot of misplaced guilt with him, which makes him almost overbearing overprotective at times, but I could totally understand where he was coming from. I loved it when they bickered and bought out all the banter. Le swoon! I really wanted to end on a witty storm related pun but I think they've pretty much been covered elsewhere, so instead I'm just going to say how much I loved the world and characters Cora Carmack has created in Roar. I thoroughly recommend delving into Rora's story! 5 Stars in my Sky! I received a review copy

    Favorite of the Year!

    There are so many wonderful things I can say about this book, and it’s not because I adore Cora Carmack and I support and love everything she writes but because this book is so freaking good! I’m not one to start a new fantasy book, I usually just read the ones that belong to a series that I’ve already invested time in the past, I love fantasy but it always feels so daunting you know? Like getting to know new characters, new settings and it always seems like there a lot to learn but with Roar I had no hesitations. One of the things I love about Roar is that you learn about this new world throughout the book which for me is the best way, there nothing more unappealing to me than reading 1 or more chapters with just the “you need to know all of this before you start reading” story. In Roar we learn about this new world through Roar’s life, we learn some things about the past and some about the present, leaving us always with a need to know more and more. Now, here Cora introduces a really cool concept, one that I think is super original and one that got me thinking maybe I could be a Stormling too! So, we have people who can control/fight storms, all kinds of storms and to fight each one you need a special set of skills and equipment so we get introduced to a bunch of people that make it their life to fight these storms and contain their power. The book if full of adventures and mysteries, there is so much I want to say but won’t because I think you should enter into this world with no spoilers so you can let yourself go by the amazing writing. If you like a bit of romance with your fantasy, don’t worry in Roar we have plenty of that, some of the scene will give you butterflies in your stomach! Swoon swoon swoon! So, to sum up, READ ROAR! You will not regret it, is an amazing first book in a series, one that is guaranteed to bring you back for the rest of the books, you also have, adventures, mystery, romance and cool magic!
