Darian Frey is down on his luck. He can barely keep his squabbling crew fed and his rickety aircraft in the sky. Even the simplest robberies seem to go wrong. It's getting so a man can't make a dishonest living any more. Enter Captain Grist. He's heard about a crashed aircraft laden with the treasures of a lost civilisation, and he needs Frey's help to get it. There's only one problem. The craft is lying in the trackless heart of a remote island, populated by giant beasts and subhuman monsters. Dangerous, yes. Suicidal, perhaps. Still, Frey's never let common sense get in the way of a fortune before. But there's something other than treasure on board that aircraft. Something that a lot of important people would kill for. And it's going to take all of Frey's considerable skill at lying, cheating and stealing if he wants to get his hands on it ...Strap yourself in for another tale of adventure and debauchery, pilots and pirates, golems and daemons, double-crosses and double-double-crosses. The crew of the Ketty Jay are back!

Good development of the characters from the first book (especially developing the main character from smuggler to something more) and I enjoyed the fuller description of the worlds and the 'bad guys'. Wooding found the balance between making this a stand alone story and part of a series well in my o...
I don't really have much to say about this book that I didn't already say in my review of Retribution Falls. If you liked book 1 chances are good you'll like book 2. In fact, I think I liked this book just a bit more. The first book was more about the crew pulling together and gelling as a group. Th...
Super Buch. Die Charas entwickeln sich alle weiter - sogar der strunzdumme Pinn. Das letzte Viertel ist sauspannend und insgesamt war es sogar ein noch besseres Abenteuer als das in Retribution Falls/Piratenmond. Chris Wooding hat mit Alazaibel Cray schon die Tür zu meinem Herz geöffnet, für Darian ...
