I love this this book from start to finish and I can't wait for the second book to come out. It has a very interesting ending and I am curious to see what is going to be in the second book.
The book was about an Elemental girl named Nym who can control the elements. She has bright white hair and very blue eyes. She is very rare since all Elemental children are usually male and are killed for being what they are. Her parents are gone, since she was 5, and so now she lives as a slave in the service of others. She has had 14 owners, when she comes to live with Adora.
When Adora found out what she was, she bought her to help her control her Elemental abilities to help save Faelen.
"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 curs
e—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.
