I really enjoyed this. I liked all of the main characters and enjoyed their progressions throughout the book. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because the world building is a little bit lacking. One of the main points of the story is that the aether storms have destroyed large portions of the world and humanity has had to adapt. But, this leaves all kinds of questions - what is the aether? Where did it come from? When did it start? Overall I really enjoyed this and would recommend to other fans of the genre.
