The first in an exciting new young adult series from 13 to Life writer Shannon Delany, Weather Witch is about a young woman enslaved for being a weather witch, and who must fight for her freedom to be with the boy she loves.
Some fled the Old World to avoid war, and some fled to leave behind magick. Yet even the fiercely regulated New World--with its ranks and emphasis on decorum--cannot staunch the power that wells up in certain people, influencing the weather and calling down storms. Hunted, the Weather Witches are forced to power the rest of the population's ships, as well as their every necessity, and luxury, in a time when steam power is repressed.
Jordan Astraea hails from a flawless background with no taint of magick, but on her seventeenth birthday she is accused of summoning an unscheduled storm. Taken from her family, Jordan is destined to be enslaved on an airship. But breaking Jordan may prove to be the very thing her carefully constructed society cannot weather.
And losing Jordan forever may force her beau, Rowen, to be the hero he would have never otherwise dared become.
I read the 13 to Life series by Shannon Delany and really enjoyed it so I just had to check out this newest story from her. Weather Witch is the first of a trilogy.
I really enjoyed the book from beginning to end. I wish Shannon would have put more explanation in some things but they are really small things that didn't really hurt the effect of the story.
I'm glad I gave this series a chance, BUT I am not happy about having to wait until 2014 for the next book! Shannon closed this one leaving me wanting so much more! I can't wait for book 2!
