The writing, editing, proofreading, and formatting are professional and crisp. My only real beef is that a few exciting scenes happen offstage, to the main character, no less, and we only find out about it when secondary characters talk amongst themselves. That left me feeling a) as if someone had yanked a chapter out from beneath me, and b) rather cheated. The rest of the story, with the floating city and airships and Spitfires (oh, my!) left me satisfied and ready for more.
Although the book clearly sets up a series, the story within stands alone. No need to buy additional books to find out what happens.
If asked, I would agree with the previous reviewer labeling it YA.
Churchill, Hughes and Ella Fitzgerald were indeed nice touches adding class and character to an already well thought out story.
Am guessing that Airship City takes place a few years prior to WWII and would like to revisit the series to find a hard drinking, hard fighting Joseph the youngest fighter Ace of the early war.
