G.D. Falksen's steampunk epic launches with BLOOD IN THE SKIES In 1908, the world ended in fire. Humanity, always bad at following orders, refused to die. Now, two hundred years later, what remains is divided between civilized order and lawless frontier. For the citizens of the Commonwealth, the brave pilots of the Air Force are all that stand between them and the dreaded pirate lords of the Badlands. For generations, the two forces have struggled back and forth in an endless cycle of invasion and reprisal. Now that is about to change, and flying ace Elizabeth Steele is about to find herself dragged into a web of intrigue aimed at the downfall of the civilized world. Nothing that a clever girl with a trusty aeroplane and a charming spy at her side can't handle. "This is steampunk clanking to life on the page." --Jay Lake "G. D. Falksen's witty, anachronistic, and downright fun writing style makes him a storyteller to watch." --Terrance Zdunich (REPO The Genetic Opera) "A piston blast of pure pulp adventure" --John Leavitt (Dr. Sketchy's Official Rainy Day Colouring Book) "A rousing adventure filled with a wealth of imagery, action and technological wonders." --Chet Phillips "G.D. Falksen is not only one of the most important authors in Steampunk literature, he is arguably the most enjoyable." --Art Donovan (The Art of Steampunk) "A delightfully crunchy alternate reality that lets you feel the gears grinding." --Phil Foglio (Girl Genius)… (mehr)

This book has some nice action, but they way that the heroine is constantly adjusting her non-romantic partner's clothing is really distracting!

I felt it could have done with a more iron-fisted editor, as well. But I enjoyed it enough to finish it (and I'm a quitter). ( )

This did not feel particularly steampunk - despite the airships and the mention of aether - possibly because my previous dabblings in this "genre" have been novels such as Scott Westerfields "Leviathon" or Philip Reeve's "Mortal Engines" quartet. It felt more like historic fiction, maybe cica World War I. Still, I did feel it built up a solid background to the world - and one in which I would be keen to learn more. It did have a dramatic fighting climax, but did not complete the plot - merely to hint at what else is to come. Oh, there are so many loose ends, that one cannot help but want to read the next instalment just to find out how they tie in. What was the deal with the ghosts and the zombies, for example? What information did the card contain?

In terms of structure = very well written - good grammar, no editting hiccups, smooth to read and only a couple of stray typos. The story flowed well, and was reasonably paced with decent character development - although perhaps could have been fleshed out a wee bit more. Whilst it did not quite have the "awesomeness" factor, it was an enjoyable read and certainly a strong footing into the series.

This is the story about Steele, a feisty female pilot and her charming "sidekick" Ray, a spy/catographer. After chancing upon a mystyerious - and much wanted item, they accidentally uncover a plot that could threaten their Commonwealth. They are then forced to form an unlikely alliance in order to protect the greater good. ( )
