Challenge a tempest. Survive it. And you become its master.
Legend says that Aurora Pavan's ancestors first gained their magic by facing a storm and stealing part of its essence. Aurora has been groomed to be the perfect queen...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, she'll have to marry a dark and brooding Stormling prince from another kingdom: He'll guarantee her spot as the next queen and be the champion her people need to remain safe.
But the more Aurora uncovers about him, the more a future with him frightens her.
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.
From New York Times bestselling author Cora Carmack, the second in the captivating new YA fantasy/romance Stormheart series, perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and Victoria Aveyard.
Princess or adventurer.
Duty or freedom.
Her Kingdom or the Stormhunter she loves.
If Aurora knows anything, it's that choices have consequences. To set things right, she joins a growing revolution on the streets of Pavan.
In disguise as the rebel Roar, she puts her knowledge of the palace to use to aid the rebellion. But the Rage season is at its peak and not a day passes without the skies raining down destruction. Yet these storms are different…they churn with darkness, and attack with a will that's desperate and violent.
This feels like more than rage.
It feels like war.
I enjoyed reading these books so much! This world of storms and Stormlings, it's so interesting and fascinating! I loved watching Aurora-Rora-Roar, go on this journey, learning about herself and the world around her.
I love the fact that the hunters used knowledge similar to what we have, with their magic. It was such a great juxtaposition! Plus the fact that their job is intensely dangerous, and the hunters were great characters, was so great to read!
There were a few big plot lines. There was Roar learn about her magic, there was her romance with Locke/Kiran. There was Cassian and his family taking over Pavan. And then there was the Stormlord with abilities like Roar who has it out for the royal Locke family. Yeah. I have a suspicion on his father's identity, given some clues that were offered.
That ending of Rage, yeah, that was pretty epic! It was pretty intense, and I didn't expect it to go in that direction! And yeah, can't wait for the 3rd book (because there has to be a 3rd one, only one threat was dealt with!) and have more with these characters!
These books were so great and I enjoyed reading them so much!
