Review quote

"I am typically not a fantasy reader, but Roar convinced me to read more. Cora Carmack created a beautiful world and I felt like I was transported to Pavan with her vivid descriptions of the city. I was left wanting more and I can't to find out what happens with the rest of her characters."--Chelsea Riela, New York Public Library

"In her electrifying YA debut Roar, Cora Carmack creates a stormy fantasy full of adventure featuring a charismatic ensemble cast. Roar introduces YA readers to Cora's signature talent for balancing authentic characters and a captivating romance, this time set in a striking new world that will sweep readers away."--Mary Hinson, Irving Public Library and Mary Had A Little Book Blog
