I picked up Roar because I’d been craving a good romance. The story I read though was the most amazing surprise. I fell in love with a princess who, while running away from an arranged marriage, begins her journey of taking back her kingdom through understanding an illegal magic that can only be found in black markets. 

The magic in this book is a beautifully-crafted thing revolving around sentient storms that destroy anyone they touch. They are a wild magic shrouded in mystery whose origins are unknown, but as our princess begins to understand them, she finds secrets long lost that just might be the key to saving herself and her home. Roar is a dangerously well-done world filled with a great cast of characters whose dynamic relationships draw you in and leave you wanting more. The first thing I thought when I finished this book was, “When is the next one coming out!?” – Constance
