Hmmm I feel bad, because Servants of the Storm should be a book that I love It has a beautiful cover, the synopsis promises some creepy mystery, and the main character is biracial, which is something you don t see in a lot of YA.And when I first started to read this book, I was really into it The first two chapters were great and really helped set the scene for this creepy tale Billie Dove, aka Dovey, and Carly are at home alone when hurricane Josephine rages through their small town During Hmmm I feel bad, because Servants of the Storm should be a book that I love It has a beautiful cover, the synopsis promises some creepy mystery, and the main character is biracial, which is something you don t see in a lot of YA.And when I first started to read this book, I was really into it The first two chapters were great and really helped set the scene for this

This was an interesting story It takes place right up the road from me so of course I was curious Especially about a hurricane and seeing dead people Sign me up Well the story was good but I kind of felt like it was not as good as it could have been My humble opinion. This book is a mess.So there s this scene where the narrator, Dovey, who s biracial, describes her skin color and she refers to her complexion as the soft brown of bread crust A person of color would never describe their skin color in this way Yeah, it s a common mistake for white authors to describe their non white characters with food descriptors, but when you have the character themselves describing their skin color as bread crust It s just glaringly bad writing Tip for all the white This book is a mess.So there s this scene where the narrator, Dovey, who s biracial, describes her skin color and she refers to her complexion as the soft brown of bread crust A person of color would never describe their skin color in this way Yeah, it s a common mistake for white authors to describe their non white characters with food descriptors, but when you have the character themselves describing their

3.5 that I am rounding up A haunting story of grief, demons, and madness or not madness , but ultimately one that I didn t connect to as much as I thought hoped I would.
