Reading progress update: I've read 11%.
The Aeronaut's Windlass: The Cinder Spires, Book 1 - Jim Butcher,-Penguin Audio-,Euan Morton

I love how this book started off! I'm listening to the audio and the narrator is pretty good. This is one of those books though that there is a lot going on and I feel like I need a hardcopy so I can flip back & forth and see it on paper so I'm putting this on hold until I get the print version.

Giveaway for *enter trumpets* The Aeronaut's Windlass by Jim Butcher!
The Aeronaut's Windlass - Jim Butcher
 Since time immemorial, the Spires have sheltered humanity, towering for miles over the mist-shrouded surface of the world. Within their halls, aristocratic houses have ruled for generations, developing scientific marvels, fostering trade alliances, and building fleets of airships to keep the peace.

Captain Grimm commands the merchant ship,Predator. Fiercely loyal to Spire Albion, he has taken their side in the cold war with Spire Aurora, disrupting the enemy’s shipping lines by attacking their cargo vessels. But when thePredator is severely damaged in combat, leaving captain and crew grounded, Grimm is offered a proposition from the Spirearch of Albion—to join a team of agents on a vital mission in exchange for fully restoring Predator to its fighting glory.

And even as Grimm undertakes this dangerous task, he will learn that the conflict between the Spires is merely a premonition of things to come. Humanity’s ancient enemy, silent for more than ten thousand years, has begun to stir once more. And death will follow in its wake…

Jim Butcher has a winner with this one.

Bridget had never really given much thought to what it might be like to be held prisoner with her captor's hand quite literally threatening to choke the life out of her, but she felt quite sure that she would never have imagined that the experience would primarily be tedious.

The Aeronaut's Windlass - Putting it aside.. For the moment!
The Aeronaut's Windlass - Jim Butcher

Sometimes, when you receive an eArc/galley, the formatting is just not up to scratch (as some of you would know!)! I think it's probably a conversion problem from pdf to kindle, but in any case, they can get incredibly hard to read!

 

Unfortunately, that's what has happened with The Aeronaut's Windlass!  I'm loving the book, but the formatting is making it extremely hard to read, and I'm spending more time deciphering the book, rather than enjoying the story! As an aside, it makes it really hard to review when you aren't really sure what problems are inherently the book's, rather than the sketchy version's. 

 

So, I am putting the eArc aside, and I'm going to update my review once it's actually released! Which is actually saying something! If I'm liking it enough to actually buy it (which I can rarely do these days!), so I can tell everybody about it; it must be doing something pretty awesome!  

 

Look out for an update sometime in October/November!
