Jim Butcher, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Dresden Files and the Codex Alera novels, conjures up a new series set in a fantastic world of noble families, steam-powered technology, and magic-wielding warriors… 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 the Predator 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…

I suppose I should start out saying that I may have a bias when reviewing this book, Jim Butcher has been one of my favorite authors for over a decade. I started reading The Aeronaut's Windlass with incredible levels of excitement and anticipation, even if it took me until now to read it (and that ...

4.0 The Aeronaut´s Windlass
The Aeronaut´s Windlass is the first book in the Cinder Spire series and this is definitely a series that I will continue reading, simply because book number one has been such a fun, action-packed, enjoyable and engaging read. I can´t even begin to give a proper synopsis of this book, so I will st...

3.0 Much better than Butcher's other work
I rather enjoyed this book, I'm not going to say it was perfect or had no holes - cause it had a tone! but non the less I enjoyed flying through the sky and tracking down the baddies with the rest of the crew, enough to rate this book 4 stars. I even looked forward to all the POV changes, as each ch...

4.0 The Aeronaut's Windlass
I liked it. It's fantasy not steampunk because it's set in a different world, but I can't imagine this melding of Napoleonics and fantasy happening without SteamPunk having occurred in the interim.
