“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?
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.
Well I don’t write reviews for DNF books but since this is My TBR list book and my homework assignment challenge book I figured I would tell you why.
The story in the first 64 pages just didn’t make sense to me. Nym was a slave with super natural powers that control the elements of storm. She is very rare and tends to kill people since she can’t control it. The beginning was a bit interesting and then it just started to get vague and a bunch of terms and things happening didn’t make any sense. Never in the beginning of the book do they say anything about her physical appearance but all of a sudden she has a deformed hand. Where did that come from and why sudden was she worried about it. I also wasn’t really connecting with her and the people around her were not very friendly even thought I think they were suppose to be. I was ok with this book being a christian book but when she was attempting to curse it seemed forced and put in to sound edgy but it wasn’t working for me and I kept rolling my eyes. I just wasn’t getting into this book like I had hoped, I think maybe it would be a great book but even in just 64 pages I just couldn’t do it anymore. I would say give it a go if you would like and see, because most likely it was just me.
