Goodreads Synopsis:
In a land ruled and shaped by violent magical storms, power lies with those who control them. 
Aurora Pavan comes from one of the oldest Stormling families in existence. Long ago, the ungifted pledged fealty and service to her family in exchange for safe haven, and a kingdom was carved out from the wildlands and sustained by magic capable of repelling the world's deadliest foes. As the sole heir of Pavan, Aurora's been groomed to be the perfect queen. She's intelligent and brave and honorable. But she's yet to show any trace of the magic she'll need to protect her people. 
To keep her secret and save her crown, Aurora's mother arranges for her to marry a dark and brooding Stormling prince from another kingdom. At first, the prince seems like the perfect solution to all her problems. He'll guarantee her spot as the next queen and be the champion her people need to remain safe. But the more secrets Aurora uncovers about him, the more a future with him frightens her. When she dons a disguise and sneaks out of the palace on night to spy on him, she stumbles upon a black market dealing in the very thing she lacks--storm magic. And the people selling it? They're not Stormlings. They're storm hunters. 
Legend says that her ancestors first gained their magic by facing a storm and stealing part of its essence. And when a handsome young storm hunter reveals he was born with magic, but possesses it now, Aurora realizes there is a third option for her future besides ruin or marriage. 
She might not have magic now but she can steal it if she's brave enough. 

Why I Can't Wait:
Can I just be repetitive and say that I just love fantasy and that is why this appeals to me? Haha. The storm magic sounds awesome, actually. I'm looking forward to that. The whole magic system sounds fascinating and I'm curious as to how one steals magic or sells it on the black market.
I've yet to see any reviews on this one yet so I'll be keeping an eye out to see if this really is something I'd be interested in.

  3. Storm magic and selling it on the black market? That's very original and I'm really curious about this idea. Sounds like a very unique take. Nice to see something different!
