Chris Wooding, author of the thrilling novel Retribution Falls, returns to a fantastical world of spectacular sky battles and high-flying heroics for another epic adventure.

Deep in the heart of the Kurg rainforest lies a long-forgotten wreck. On board, behind a magically protected door, an elusive treasure awaits. Good thing Darian Frey, captain of the airshipKetty Jay, has the daemonist Crake on board. Crake is their best chance of getting that door open—if they can sober him up. For a prize this enticing, Frey is willing to brave the legendary monsters of the forbidding island and to ally himself with a partner who’s even less trustworthy than he is.

But what’s behind that door is not what any of the fortune hunters expect, any more than they anticipate their fiercest competitor for the treasure—a woman from Frey’s past who also happens to be the most feared pirate in the skies.

Baker & Taylor
A follow-up to Retribution Falls finds Captain Frey committing the tenuously peaceful airship Ketty Jay to a seemingly profitable salvage job in an untamed jungle believed to be in Mane territory. Original. 30,000 first printing.

Fun times. The sense of swashbuckling adventure continues from the fist book. The steampunk airship action is great and the plot is fast paced enough that there is never a dull moment. There are definite influences from TV's Firefly as well as Star Wars and pirate movies, all rolled into an imaginative steampunk style setting. The great cast of flawed characters is back and better then ever. It's a great series to lose yourself in for awhile without having to worry about it getting super dark and depressing like the Game of Thrones series and many of Joe Abercrombie's books. Those are great books but it can be nice to read something that's more about adventure and action then grim darkness.
