SHELF CONTROL #1 | ROAR BY CORA CARMACK



Welcome to Shelf Control — an original feature created and hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies.

Shelf Control is a weekly celebration of the unread books on our shelves. Pick a book you own but haven’t read, write a post about it (suggestions: include what it’s about, why you want to read it, and when you got it), and link up! For more info on what Shelf Control is all about, check out my introductory post, here.

This is my first time taking part in this meme. I always do waiting on wednesdays but because I don't have many books that are yet to release on my tbr, this meme seemed perfect as I'm always in need to control my shelf haha! 

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.


How and when I got it:

I bought the ebook when it was released.

Why I want to read it:

I love the author's previous works and because this seemed like a new genre by her I wanted to read but haven't yet... but these days I suddenly feel like reading this one so maybe soon!

  1. This looks very good! I'm not familiar with the author at all, but the plot sounds really exciting. Plus, love the cover! The character looks a lot like Daenerys from Game of Thrones. :)

  2. Looks pretty interesting. Like Lisa, I haven't come across this author before. Hope it turns out a good one--it certainly sounds it!
