This week I’m eagerly waiting on
(and by ‘eagerly waiting on’ I mean sometimes I just need to walk around in circles and scream because I need this book so badly):
Storm Siren (Storm Siren #1) by Mary Weber
Expected publication: 19th August 2014
Publisher: Thomas Nelson/HarperCollins
“I raise my chin as the buyers stare. Yes. Look. You don’t want me. Because, eventually, accidentally, I will destroy you. “
In a world at war, a slave girl’s lethal curse could become one kingdom’s weapon of salvation. If the curse and the girl can be controlled.
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 handsome 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?
