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 can't wait for this one!

OMG, YES!!!!! Just reading the synopsis has left me breathless with excitement!! I kid you NOT. This has got to be the AWESOMEST fantasy novel I've yet come across!! (Well, except for the ENTIRE Harry Potter series, lol. And then there are Leigh Bardugo's books....) I just LOVE  this whole thing about Stormlings and storm hunters, and stealing magic, and....Aurora, the female protagonist, sure is brave enough to risk saving her people by getting magic that she does not yet possess!! You ROCK IT, GIRL!!!!

  2. I've been eyeing this one for quite a long time. Since I personally have some fear of storms, I think it will be great to read about them in a context where I don't have to be fearful. It sounds like a great fantasy read and I wish we didn't have so long to wait!
