“I am typically not a fantasy reader, but Roar convinced me to read more. Cora Carmack created a beautiful world and I felt like I was transported to Pavan with her vivid descriptions of the city. I was left wanting more and I can't to find out what happens with the rest of her characters.”―Chelsea Riela, New York Public Library
“In her electrifying YA debut Roar, Cora Carmack creates a stormy fantasy full of adventure featuring a charismatic ensemble cast. Roar introduces YA readers to Cora’s signature talent for balancing authentic characters and a captivating romance, this time set in a striking new world that will sweep readers away.”―Mary Hinson, Irving Public Library and Mary Had A Little Book Blog
About the Author
Cora Carmack is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. Since she was a teenager, her favorite genre to read has been fantasy, and now she's thrilled to bring her usual compelling characters and swoon-worthy romance into worlds of magic and intrigue with her debut YA fantasy, Roar. Her previous adult romance titles include the Losing It, Rusk University, and Muse series. Her books have been translated into more than a dozen languages around the world. Cora splits her time between Austin, TX and New York City, and on any given day you might find her typing away at her computer, flying to various cities around the world, or just watching Netflix with her kitty Katniss. But she can always be found on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and her website coracarmack.com.

All that said, I have one complaint. I found the pacing sluggish. I nearly put the book down but decided I'd invested too much time not to finish. And I'm glad I did, I just wish it had moved faster, allowing the world to be revealed through action.
This plot is intricate and engaging. The pacing is amazing and getting wrapped up in Cara's world building was exciting. I found myself curiously entranced.
Locke and Roar are exciting, easy to root for and I didn't feel the need to role my eyes once at the romance. Nothing about it screamed cliché! Thank goodness.
The idea and execution of this book is inspiring. You won't regret the minutes and hours you spend in the world of a Stormling. I read it in once sitting!
Do yourself a favor and dive in. ❤
Pro: I love the world building and magic system. It's awesome how the depth of the world continues to grow as you read. The characters are all people and not two dementional.
Con: I don't like the multiple perspectives in relation to are main character and her love interest. I guess my major issue with the book is it falls prey to" the powerful female that has a overbearing male savior" theme. As unique as the story is, it's disappointing to see this cliché. It would have got a 5 otherwise.
The story line is so original, unique. I can't wait to see where Cora takes us next.
"Because death meant leaving you, and that was unthinkable. Is unthinkable. Feeling this way, the way I do about you, Roar, it's scarier than any storm I've ever faced."
I loved every part of this book from the characters to the world building and the love interest.
That ending made me feel all kinds of feels and I wish I had the next book in my hands right now.
I only have one regret and it is having to wait a whole year for the next book.
This was definitely one of my favorite reads for 2017.
*this book is not for everyone, you either hate it or really love it. Just a small warning.*
