Description

“Storm Siren is a riveting tale from start to finish. Between the simmering romance, the rich and inventive fantasy world, and one seriously jaw-dropping finale, readers will clamor for the next book—and I'll be at the front of the line!” —MARISSA MEYER, New York Times bestselling author of the Lunar Chronicles

“I raise my chin as the buyers stare. Yes. Look. You don’t want me. Because, eventually, accidentally, I will destroy you.”

As a slave in the war-weary kingdom of Faelen, seventeen-year-old Nym isn’t merely devoid of rights, her Elemental kind are only born male and always killed at birth—meaning, she shouldn’t even exist.

Standing on the auction block beneath smoke-drenched mountains, Nym faces her fifteenth sell. But when her hood is removed and her storm-summoning killing curse revealed, Nym is snatched up by a court advisor and given a choice: be trained as the weapon Faelen needs to win the war or be killed.

Choosing the former, Nym is unleashed into a world of politics, bizarre parties, and rumors of an evil more sinister than she’s being prepared to fight . . . not to mention the trainer whose dark secrets lie behind a mysterious ability to calm every lightning strike she summons.

But what if she doesn’t want to be the weapon they’ve all been waiting for?

Set in a beautifully eclectic world of suspicion, super abilities, and monsters, Storm Siren is a story of power. And whoever controls that power will win.

From Publishers Weekly

May 26, 2014 – Nym has been a slave for 14 different masters when a noblewoman named Adora buys her, although as an untrained storm siren in a kingdom that kills Elementals at birth, Nym is lucky to be alive. In her new home, Nym finds that Adora is one of the king's advisors trying to stop Faelen from being invaded, and she plans to use Nym's powers as a line of last defense against the armies of the body-snatching Draewulf. Meanwhile, Nym can't stop thinking about Eogan, her trainer, whose touch brings a calm the likes of which she's never experienced before. Nym's struggles don't exactly tread new ground, so fantasy readers will feel at home in Weber's first novel. The romantic subplot falls a little flat, but a detailed backdrop and large cast bring vividness to the story. Nym's friend and fellow magic-user Colin, for example, keeps the mood light with his good humor without being reduced to comic relief alone. The story takes a surprisingly dark turn as the narrative pieces fall into place for the next book in this planned trilogy. Ages 12 up.

Awesome

It's a pretty good book but I can't believe it happens in the span of a month. I mean all that within a month! It does get slow and at parts it goes to quick for my liking, but I suggest you give it a try. Can't wait for the second book but it's a whole year away. 😭😫😖
