Love sci fi/Fantasy but this story was too slow to get going. I lost interest after reading the first few chapters and couldnt force myself to read anymore. The first 2 main characters in the story Frey and Crake are both unlikeable and boring, but I hung in until a more interesting character Jez came on board. However, by then I didnt really care what happened to any of them.

Fans of Firefly will have a lot of fun with this airship caper. Wooding does a great job building a fun and compelling world, and a motley cast of characters to learn to love. The first of a four book series, readers will find this book to be a broader introduction to a new world, with a lot of fast paced action and a healthy dose of character building. Highly recommended to fans of authors like Cherie Priest and Scott Lynch.

It's got a bunch of everything fun.. steampunk, action/adventure, sci-fi, witty humor, a bit or gore and a severely dysfunctional crew.. Highly recommend all the books in this series!

A good read. Some nice Steam Punk themes with lots of airships interspersed with guns, jet fighters & electricity without wasting time explaining the technology. Only downside is that a lot of the plot reads like an alternate setting for Firefly/ Serenity. That aside, I enjoyed it enough I am going to read the next Ketty Jay book.

Very interesting, highly recommended. Read it. Period.

Some minor plot holes and loose ends, but still a great read.

An enjoyable story. It builds nicely, although I never really felt as if the main characters were in any real danger. For the most part I was following the story to find out why the crew were together and if they could remain together. It also has an interesting technological and political background which I wanted to know more about.

Overall a worthwhile read.
