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.

  3. One series of books I am thankful for is "Wheel of Time" by Robert Jordan.

    I am thankful because they have a rich mythology and are detailed high fantasy which makes them great for reading over and over because you always missed something the first time or the 20th time.

    1. Hi, Samantha!

      Oh, I LOVE "Little Women"!! I read it as a child, years ago, and totally identified with Jo! I read an abridged version, though, so I never found about Beth. I'm glad, too, as it would have spoiled my enjoyment of the book. Now that I'm all grown up, I should read the complete version. Lol.

      "A Christmas Carol" is one of my all-time FAVORITES!!! Especially at this time of year!! Nice picks!!

      Thanks for participating in the giveaway!! Happy Thanksgiving!! <3 :)

    Thanks,
    Lori

  8. I have so many books to be grateful for. The book that got me interested in reading was The Outsiders. We had to read it in middle school. Also, Forever by Judy Blume and Flowers In The Attic by V.C. Andrews has to be in the top three. I have read many great books over the years but those three have always stuck out for me. Thank you for the giveaway!

  11. "What book(s) are you most thankful for having read, and why?" I might be going to say Hurt by Tabitha Suzuma, it really did open up my mind about sexual harrasment victims which those doesnt only happen to women, but also men. And it's such a fun read to get to know what's in men's brain after the intercourse.

  23. I recently read The Red Ribbon by Lucy Adlington and Emilia by Ellie Midwood, both were fiction but based on facts of things that happened during the holocaust. I am grateful for these types of books as they educate us about the horrific things that actually happened in the past which I think should be remembered and they make me thankful to those who share the stories. I have also read Eva Kor's book Surviving the Angel of Death which is based on her own experiences. She is an inspirational women whom I am grateful to have exchanged emails with too.
