ROAR BY: CORA CARMACK
Roar - Cora Carmack

<!-- x-tinymce/html -->

I first heard about Roar around a month or so before it released. The premise instantly intrigued me and I knew I wanted to give this book a try so I pre-ordered it. I am so glad that I did! Roar did not disappoint! It was everything I was hoping it would be, and more!

 

Aurora was such an interesting character. I sympathized with her plight, an heir to her kingdom with a huge secret that could topple it before she even got a chance to take the throne. I liked that she was noble enough to want what was best for her kingdom, not just herself and her pride.

 

 

She needed Stormling magic as much for them as she did for herself. I was impressed with the lengths she was willing to go to become independent and strong enough to lead on her own. And considering her sheltered life, hiding herself away so no one would learn her secret, that she lacked her family magic, I thought her going on this epic journey was just what she needed, not only to find her magic, but to also find herself and get a better understanding of the world and the people that she will be ruling over one day.

 

I have to say that not only was Aurora a wonderful leading lady, but each character in this story was enchanting! I genuinely wanted to know more about each and every one, even the ones with the more nefarious intentions, maybe even especially them. Each character was well thought out and multilayered, and it made the story shine that much brighter for it. I loved the rag tag group of storm hunters!

 

 

These misfits that found something like a family in each other and a home in wherever the winds were blowing up the next big storm. They each had a compelling tale to tell, what lead them to where they are now and the things that shaped them. I feel like we have only just begun to hear their stories and know their motivations and I really can't wait to get more!

 

Besides the amazing set of characters the setting is equally enriching. Carmack has created a vast world here and I am desperately hoping to get to see even more of it in future books! And the magic! I loved the idea of these people who can conquer these storms that seem more beastly than natural. Forces of nature have always been something that equally interests me and frightens me. These things that can just come out of nowhere, wreak such havoc and bow to no man.

 

 

There's a reason "ride out the storm" is a saying, what else can you really do against such raw power? That is part of the reason I found the idea of these people who can stand toe to toe with a storm and steal its heart, its very essence, for their own so wild and compelling! And if that sounds as awesome to you is it did to me...just wait until you get to the end of this book! That twist was not something that I saw coming, and might just be my very favorite thing in this story!

 

 

If you are a fan of fantasy and adventure stories with a strong cast of characters I highly recommend giving this book a read! I am so glad that I did and now begins the excruciating wait for the sequel.

Great paranormal romance
In The Roar (Paranormal Dating Agency) (Volume 9) - Milly Taiden

In The Roar by Milly Taiden is a fairly short read, perfect for paranormal fans with limited time for reading.  Ms Taiden has delivered a well-written book.  The characters are fantastic.  Karel and Liv's story is fast paced and loaded with suspense, action, humor and sizzle.  I enjoyed In The Roar and look forward to reading more from Milly Taiden in the future.  In The Roar is book 9 of the Paranormal Dating Agency Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I received a copy of this book from Instafreebie.

Lost Roar (Shifting Crossroads Book 12) by Zenina Masters
Lost Roar - Zenina Masters

Nicia was at the fundamental lion compound and rescued from a life as guard beast for her family.

Her mother’s family takes her in and helps her recover from the years of abuse.

Once she is recovered, she decides that it is time to seek out a mate, provided she could change her mind and come home if needed. With that agreement in place, she heads to the Crossroads.

Braxton has been watching for a mate, and while several women came close, it was the sombre lioness asking for directions that caught his attention. He wanted to make her smile, and when that became his primary pleasure, he knew he was in deep.

 

Review

 

This short story takes a peek at the aftermath of patriarchal poly cults shifter style.  

 

The heroine is a great hunter recovering from a terrible family life. The hero loves her exactly as she is. 

 

This makes for a good romance.

Roar
Roar - Nicole Trope,Susan Strafford Roar - Nicole Trope,Susan Strafford This was a nice short story. I think that the main character's desperation was clearly represented. I enjoyed the narrator's performance quite a bit. My only complaint was that the story was left somewhat open ended. I would have liked to see a bit more resolution to the story.

When Lions Roar by Thomas Maier
When Lions Roar: The Churchills and the Kennedys - Thomas Maier

When I saw this book offered in a giveaway on Goodreads, I knew I had to win it for my dad. Fortunately I did win it! Pop's is completely fascinated with WWII. I'd consider him pretty darn fluent in WWII history. He adores Churchill so I knew this was going to be a hit with him. Dad devoured this quickly. Took me a bit longer but I'm happy I read it. While the book wasn't so much about WWII, it was still utterly intriguing. I knew enough about the Kennedy's to turn me sour on that Camelot crowd, but I wasn't as familiar with Winston, and his son, Randolph, as I'd like. Maier takes an in depth look into these two political power house families. I probably like Joe Kennedy even less now, such a pompous pig. Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book. A bit winded at times with the gossipy-romance but it turns out these two families shared more than political aspirations. If you love history and want to take a closer look inside the Churchill/Kennedy empire, including relations between fathers and sons, this is the book. Dad's POV? It was the perfect read for him and he'd give it five stars. Back off, old man! This is my review.
