Theirs is a world of opposites. The privileged live in sky manors held aloft by a secretive magic known only as the Mysteries. Below, the earthbound poor are forced into factory work to maintain the engine of commerce. Only the wealthy can afford to learn the Mysteries and they use their knowledge to further lock their hold on society. Cettie Pratt is a waif doomed to the world below until an admiral attempts to adopt her. But in her new home in the clouds, not everyone treats her as one of the family. Sera Fitzempress is a princess born into power. She yearns to meet the orphan girl she has heard so much about but her father deems the girl unworthy of his daughter's curiosity. Neither girl feels that she belongs. Each seeks to break free of imposed rules. Now, as Cettie dreams of living above and as Sera is drawn to the world below, they will follow the paths of their own choosing. But both girls will be needed for the coming storm that threatens to overturn both their worlds.… (mere)

“No one truly belongs anywhere, Cettie. We each are given a life to live. And we live it as best we can.”
― Jeff Wheeler, Storm Glass


I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler free way. If you feel anything in my review is a spoiler and is not already hidden in spoiler brackets please let me know. Thank you.
12 year old Cettie is parentless, hungry, and scared. Till a man comes. He can see her ghosts too, and he can banish them. After a plea from her, she is off to stay with him in his manor in the sky with hopes of being adopted. While some of the household welcomes her with open arms. Some do not. Then there is Sera. A princess. While her life may seem perfect, she is a prisoner in her own way. With hopes and dreams to be free and able to help the poor of the fells. After her father is made prince regent. Things begin to change in her world. And certain information will turn everything she's known upside down.
I listened to this one the KU audio. The narrator wasn't bad. I'm unsure though if my rating is due fully to the story though. I think without it being on audio, I may have given it a lower rating. There really wasn't a whole lot to the story. I think its because it was setting the series up and that's what makes it feel so uneventful to me. That being said though, the story did have its high points and in the end I will listen to the next book in the series as well with high hopes that the story progresses and get better. I liked the characters. They were each so different and unique in there own ways.
How I choose my rating:
1* Did not finish, or hated it but forced myself to finish.
2** Didn't really like it. Didn't hate it but not sure why I finished it other then for some closure.
3*** I liked it. I had some issues with it, but as a whole it was good. I probably won't reread again ever, but there is a chance I might finish the series. (If part of one) But if not it's not a huge loss.
4**** I really liked this book. Maybe not a work of genius, but highly entertaining. I might reread this again, and I will finish the series. (If part of one) I would recommend to those I know hold interest in this books content.
5***** I loved this book. I found little to no issues with it at all. I will definitely be rereading this and probably more than once. I will finish the series and reread it multiple times. (If part of one) I will recommend this book to EVERYONE!!!!

Captivating story

Two likeable heroines keep the plot moving. The writing/world reminded me of a combination of Richard Pullman’s and Dickens. Very dark but rays of hope for change. ( )

So again with the marketing. I understand why Prime has free books. I have found a new author to like. Definitely in the fantasy realm. I thought I recognized the have and have not division but the airships threw me off until I kept reading. Good job for the author, and yes, I'll look into the rest of his books. ( )

I only picked this up to complete a reading challenge (a weather element in the title), but it ended up loving it. I feel like the world was brought to life and I kept rooting for the main characters. I will be reading the rest of the series. ( )
