Jordan Astraea, who has lived out all of her life in Philadelphia’s most exclusive neighborhood, is preparing to celebrate her birthday with friends, family and all the extravagance they might muster. The young man who is most often her dashing companion, Rowen Burchette, has told her a surprise awaits her and her best friend, Catrina Hollindale, wouldn’t miss this night for all the world!
But storm clouds are gathering and threatening to do far more than dampen her party plans because someone in the Astraea household has committed the greatest of social sins by Harboring a Weather Witch.
I gave this book 3 stars because I wasn't totally engrossed in the story. There were also times where I was a bit confused. Way too many things were going on in my opinion.
The chapters where divided up by the places the characters were in for example Holgate and Philadelphia. That would've been fine if there were only a few characters but in this book there was a lot and they sort of blended together in my head. I caught myself going back a few pages to see where the character was and what was happenening.
I also didn't like how suddenly things happened. For example, one character died in one line. He was laughing one second and boom he is killed by a creeping creature thing. What really got me is his friend that was with him didn't show much emotion towards the death! He was all like "oh he's dead"
Anyway I'm going on and on about a few bad things about this book so I'll get to the good stuff.
I loved the concept of the book and the time period. It was cool reading about an alternate past where electricity was technically made by Weather Witches.
I also like a few of the characters even if they got on my nerves sometimes but that happens in a lot of books so it's not that bad :P
Overall, I liked it but it wasn't great.
