Review: Storm Siren by Mary Weber

About the book:
"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.

My thoughts:

Storm Siren was a really good read. It has a unique storyline and interesting characters. The story isn't predictable (though there were a few things I saw coming), as there were several things that shocked me near the end.

I really liked the characters. Some were funny, others despicable. I found myself engrossed in the story and what was going to happen next in Nym's life. The way Storm Siren ended was a shock and I now can't wait to read the next book when it releases. I need to know if what I think happened, actually happened!

I recommend Storm Siren if you enjoy fantasy novels -- it's really good.
