An entertaining, swashbuckling fantasy/light steam-punk adventure tale involving daemonists, golems, airships, pirates, guns, loot, political plots and the motley crew of the Ketty Jay. The book starts off slowly, but picks up pace nicely. This book would be suitable for teenagers. There isn't a...

A mostly entertaining read. Too much time spent asking rhetorical, overly introspective questions within the character's heads. I swear, every time the focus changed, the reader was flooded with the endless doubts that fill each of the character's minds. The story was fun, if not slightly stock a...

This isn't usually the type of book I go for these days, but lately I've been in the mood for a good old fashioned adventure. And happily this book delivered. The best way to describe this book is if Firefly, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Last Exile all got together and had a Steampunk lovechild. It...

The author does a tremendous job wi...

I picked this book up on a whim, but I'm so glad I did. It scratched an itch I've long had for heavily flawed characters and things that never work out exactly right. Too many books feel the need to put neat little bows on by the end, but this book instead embraces its heroes, for all their flaws an...

I wasn't expecting this book to be good because I won it in a Goodreads contest. But to my utter surprise I really enjoyed the book. Like other people have said, if you enjoyed Joss Whedon's Firefly TV show, then there's a high probability that you will like this book. I like that it is an easy rea...

Retribution Falls is a rip-roaring adventure yarn with air pirates that combines a bit of both science fiction and fantasy. The world is revealed as needed, but the real bonus is the fantastic characters, some of whom fall into the unsympathetic category yet are so well drawn we can't help but iden...
