Storm SirenBook - 2015
The award-winning novel that started it all.
"A riveting tale from start to finish. Between the simmering romance, the rich and inventive fantasy world, and one seriously jaw-dropping finale, readers will clamor for the next book--and I'll be at the front of the line!" --Marissa Meyer, New York Times bestselling author of the Lunar Chronicles
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.
"I raise my chin as the buyers stare. Yes. Look. You don't want me. Because, eventually, accidentally, I will destroy you."
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 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.
"Intense and intriguing. Fans of high stakes fantasy won't be able to put it down." --CJ Redwine, author of the Ravenspire series
"Mary Weber has created a fascinating, twisted world. Storm Siren sucked me in from page one--I couldn't stop reading! This is a definite must-read, the kind of book that kept me up late into the night turning the pages!" --Lindsay Cummings, author of the Androma Saga
"A riveting read! Mary Weber's rich world and heartbreaking heroine had me from page one. You're going to fall in love with this love story." --Josephine Angelini, internationally bestselling author of the Starcrossed trilogy
"Elegant prose and intricate world-building twist into a breathless cyclone of a story that will constantly keep you guessing. More please!" --Shannon Messenger, author of the Sky Fall series

"How can you say it's not a person's fault when he harms others, whether intentionally or not, but then say it's honorable when he chooses to help? I mean, what makes a person evil? If you believe a person was born to bring help, then were others born to bring destruction?..."
Was I born to destroy life, or to defend Faelen?
Colin bumps my shoulder. Then does it again. Until I look up and that bald-boy smirk emerges. "I think some have to fight harder to choose good over evil because the evil's got it out for them. And maybe it's because those're the ones evil knows will become the strongest warriors, recognizing true wickedness when it rears its head...Maybe the ones who've struggled with true evil are the ones meant to make the biggest difference against it, you know?"
