Jessica (a GREAT read)
I received this ARC from the publishers via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, I was in no way compensated for this review. Note that this is based on the ARC and not the finished version.

Shannon Delany's Stormbringer is the second book in her new trilogy set in the steampunk world of the United States. I have to admit that I love these covers! I think they are so bright and brilliant, they are just simply stunning!

I had a bit of a rough patch with the first book in this trilogy and I a
"Jordan Astraea lives as practically a slave now as she is forced to train to be a Conductor. It doesn't help that she can barely understand her powers herself. Her only hope, Rowen, wants to rescue her, but he is forced to work on a ship as well. They will have to learn to fight their own battles if they want to brace the storm that is about to come." Full review at Fresh Fiction:
My copy was provided by Netgalley.

Stormbringer is the sequel to Weather Witch and this book took place right after the first one. Jordan has come to terms that she is a Weather Witch, someone with the ability to control the weather, and she is training to become a Conductor. A Conductor helps keep air vessels up in the sky by manipulating the weather to keep the vessels afloat. Yet Jordan is a slave on the Artemesia and she just wants to go back home and be with Rowen.

Rowen can't accept that Jor
In the intrigue-filled follow up to Weather Witch, Jordan Astraea, once a young Philadelphia lady of good social standing, is now in the final stages of her brutal training to become a Conductor—the Weather Witch who serves as a living battery to keep the massive airliner Artemesia aloft. Meanwhile, Rowen, determined to rescue her after losing his only other true friend and being wanted for murder, has found himself forced aboard a much different air vessel, this one manned by a dangerous crew a ...more

I have been waiting a long time for the sequel to Weather Witch and now it’s here! We return to Shannon Delany’s intriguing world of steampunk with a hint of magic. We rejoin Jordan who is in a very bad spot and Rowan on his quest to save her after everything that happened in Weather Witch. If you haven’t read the first novel, you need to. You won’t understand much of what’s going on without it.

Stormbringer is dark and beautiful at the same time. I would use that description for both the world a
I didn't get to read the first in the series before this one, as it was an ARC and my library doesn't have the first book. That said, the first few chapters were a bit confusing. It is not completely a stand-alone story. It was pretty easy to play catch-up and become familiar with the main voices of the book, though.

Reading in the author's acknowledgements, she said she wanted to make kids (teens, really) think, so I was a little hesitant, also. I read to get lost in something and be entertaine

Jordan is now being forced into the role as a conductor on the airship, Artemesia, while Rowen is now aboard a ship that conducts trade, not all of it above board. The pair, now separated, are both fighting for survival and Rowen has vowed to find Jordan once again and rescue her. The Artemesia has an assortment of passengers including the Maker, Bran and his daughter. Bran has been kidnapped by those in opposition to his creations and Wandering Wallace has ulterior motives as well. That little ...more

I have mixed feelings about this book. I'm a huge fan of Shannon and i really enjoy to read her books, but this one makes me feel a little bit frustrated, but at same time satisfied! The story is really interesting and the whole concept with steampunk, magic, witches and different creatures is reaaally cool! But the frustrating "thing", is that i was expecting to see Jordan become more powerful and fight back, against all the awful things that happened to her! And talking about that, i think it ...more

Jordan Astraea, once Fifth of the Nine until falsely found to be a Weather Witch on her seventeenth birthday, has now officially been Made! Something that should be completely impossible to do, but it has now come to pass and she has been handed over to the airliner Artemesia as their Conductor-in-training, a.k.a. their living battery until she burns out in about a year as the others before her she's replacing. Will Rowen be able to get to her in time now that he's found himself about a Pirate s ...more
After reading the first book in this series back in June of last year, I was anxious and excited to find out that the second book was going to release rather quickly. This book picks up almost exactly where the last one left off, and I was very intrigued to continue this story in Delany’s world of magic, steampunk, and lots of adventure. Our heroine, Jordan Astraea, has recently landed herself in a bit of trouble, and not all by her own doing. On her birthday she was outed as a witch, which is n ...more

*My Thoughts*

Stormbringer is the sequel to Weather Witch and pretty much picks up right where the previous story left off. Shannon Delany is a writer who takes her characters to every emotional situation you can think of and then pushes them even further than you can imagine. The world of the Weather Witch series is filled with steampunk, and dangerous creatures known as Merrow, and council members who truly believe that they are the only ones who can be allowed to d
I liked the first book in this series much more than I did this one. This was ok, but it seemed a little confusing to me. I won this in a giveaway and I'm glad to have won it. The author did do a good job writing it. It could have been me, not the book.
This was much less confusing than the first book in the series, because I understood the phrases that were used. It took some much darker turns than the first one, but had a reasonably pleasant ending however, knowing there is another book to come, I know this is not where it ends.

This was a book I received from the Goodreads First-Reads Giveaway. It is an easy read and has about 310 pages. The second book in the Weather Witch Series. I liked the book. I don't like to tell the whole story in reviews because when I read a review I don't want to know everything about the book.

Jordan Astraea is the lead in the book and she is in training to become a Conducter/Weather Witch. It's a brutal training. Her friend Rowen is trying to rescue her but he has problems of his own. The b

I received this through First Reads Giveaways, and it was just a lovely book. Just BEAUTIFUL! This steampunk world is not something I thought that I would be into it, but reading this... wow. I could just picture every scene from every page... There were some small spelling and continuity errors in the book, but still... the book was so amazingly beautiful that I was totally able to overlook those. I DEVOURED this book in a little over a day. I can't wait to read more by Ms. Delany.
As fun and ambitious as the first book. Jordan and Rowan's paths diverge on two different airships where one finds himself among revolutionary pirates and the other is further enslaved as the new witch powering her ship. The plot thickens as word of a prophecy about the Stormbringer, a powerful witch who will unite the magical and overturn the status quo.

This goodreads-first-reads book was great! I hope there are more to come. I really loved the characters, especially Jordan, and I was so mad that she had to go through so many awful things. I am excited to find out if she stays with Rowan, and how all of the witches fare now that their is no Maker. I highly recommend this book.
Roark Anderson
Be warned! This book has enough inappropriate content in it to make adults shudder. There is no way this is a YA book by any stretch of the imagination. Do NOT read this!!! Also not even a good story for all the horror you have to slog thorough. Worst of the 70+ books I read in 2014.

Received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads.
A great read. An action packed story though at times fairly grim as it depicts the breaking down of a young woman's psyche through serious physical abuse and her society's complicity in it. I look forward to reading the third installment though.
Won this book on first reads. Very excited. Will update review once received and read.

Shannon Delany has written stories since she was a child. She began writing in earnest when her grandmother fell unexpectedly ill during a family vacation. In 2008 her greatly abbreviated version of 13 to Life (written in just five weeks) won the grand prize i
