Synopsis: 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.

Review: My reread of this book did NOT disappoint me. Far from it, I love this book more than when I originally read the book. I was definitely loving the writing and the romance this round and I love all the little things I saw in this reread. This is such a wonderfully well done book and you can definitely tell that the author has an amazing talent for writing. I can’t wait for book 2!

The only thing that annoyed me in this reread was that I wanted to see more Nova. She’s definitely my fave of the series LOL. I hope I get to see her more in the next book!

Verdict: I love this book and series.

The pacing was pretty good as well, a bit slow in the beginning, and I felt like this was such an unique concept for fantasy.However, the romance got me. The book was so heavy in the romance that it made it hard for me to continue to read it. The character development for Rora felt like it was almost all dependent on the romantic relationship, like she found herself in her love instead of by herself. I don’t know if that’s a good message to send young girls, but if you’re a romance lover then this would be a great introductory book to fantasy for you!Verdict: Romance heavy, but still worth the read in my opinion.
