The air pirate Andan Cly is going straight. Well, straighter. Although he's happy to run alcohol guns wherever the money's good, he doesn't think the world needs more sap, or its increasingly ugly side-effects. But becoming legit is easier said than done, and Cly's first legal gig--a supply run for the Seattle Underground--will be paid for by sap money. New Orleans is not Cly's first pick for a shopping run. He loved the Big Easy once, back when he also loved a beautiful mixed-race prostitute named Josephine Early--but that was a decade ago, and he hasn't looked back since. Jo's still thinking about him, though, or so he learns when he gets a telegram about a peculiar piloting job. It's a chance to complete two lucrative jobs at once, one he can't refuse. He sends his old paramour a note and heads for New Orleans, with no idea of what he'sin for--or what she wants him to fly. But he won't be flying. Not exactly. Hidden at the bottom of Lake Pontchartrain lurks an astonishing war machine, an immense submersible called theGanymede. This prototype could end the war, if only anyone had the faintest idea of how to operate it.... If only they could sneak it past the Southern forces at the mouth of the Mississippi River... If only it hadn't killed most of the men who'd ever set foot inside it. But it's those "if onlys" that will decide whether Cly and his crew will end up in the history books, or at the bottom of the ocean.… (mehr)

As I'm reading more books set in this world, I feel they are delivering diminishing returns. New characters and locations get introduced, and there's a new steampunk contraption or other, but overall, it felt very much like the same thing. It didn't help that I found the "Movie in your mind" production of these Graphic Audio CD to be more than a little distracting. It was more radio play than audio book, with a big cast of voices and constant sound effects. ( )

science fiction/steampunk. Enjoyable detour into steam punk New Orleans. ( )

**Based on audio books.
These books have really not been what I expected. I imagined steampunk adventure and these are more steampunk historical fiction drama with just a little bit of fantasy (magical realism? a little science-gone-wrong?) thrown in (and, to be fair, there are moments of "action/adventure" in all three books, with the first one probably being the quickest paced). But I've nevertheless enjoyed them, especially once I shifted my expectations. Priest does a fantastic job with the characterizations (most certainly helped along by the narrators who have read the first 3 books) and the scene, and I well-pictured everything that was happening, who was speaking, as well as emotions and all the subtleties that make a book something you can sink into. The next 2 in the "series" (they can each be standalone novels, but there are loose connections between them, including a handful of characters who recur in non-essential ways and, of course, the world) I have in paperback (not audio), and I am definitely looking forward to seeing if the excellent narrations are met by Priest's writing. Four stars. ( )

I welcomed the old characters with open arms and felt a warm sense of nostalgia with the return to Seattle, even if it was only for a short period of time. The developments are getting more intriguing as the war carries on and it was a pure treat to be thrown into a civil war submarine. Andon's developing love interest with Briar and ambiguous old fling with Josephine was a welcome if mild source of tension amongst zombie outbreaks, piratical actions, and avoiding Texan attentions. I find these books quite solid and filling now, and any previous concerns I once had are now pretty much laid to rest. I cannot expect only a few main characters at all, but a great deal of main characters and new ones being introduced with each book. Once my expectations are set, I'm quite happy with what I get to see.

The strongest aspects of the books are the immersive qualities of the world we're set in, but the strength of the characterizations are good enough on their own to carry any tale. Great stuff!

Ganymede was good, just not as good as Boneshaker or Dreadnought. It felt like the book that goes in the middle to explain important things in the next book; as such, it probably could have been summed up as a prologue: Andan Cly went to New Orleans to pilot the world's first submarine in an effort to end the war, and discovered while he was there that the rotters are spreading that far. The end.

Unless the Ganymede, the Earlys, New Orleans, or the pirates figure largely in the next books, I don't quite get the point of this one.
