About the Author
Marty S. Dalton is a spoken word poet and novelist from Chicago, IL. With hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube, his spoken word has also been featured nationally on NPR and Moody Radio. His first novel, Captain Tomahawk and the Sky-Lion, is a steampunk adventure with a poetic metaphor that sets it apart as the anti-Y/A story—where innocence is not lost, but found. You can learn more about Marty on his website (anthempoet.com) where he posts his latest written and spoken variations.

The author does an excellent job of weaving life lessons into the story through his diverse, colorful characters while never coming across as preaching to the reader. Captain Tomahawk and the Sky-Lion is just an all around feel good novel, appropriate for young and older adults alike.
Can't wait to read the next book from this author!
One can't help but love Captain Anna Tomahawk: She is cocky, confident, and has a strong moral base when it comes to people. I appreciate the fact that Mr. Dalton did not feel the need to use profanity, graphic violence, or sexual innuendos.
I would LOVE to see this made into a series--The Further Adventures of Captain Tomahawk, starring Captain Tomahawk and her sidekick, Max.
If you want a fun read, a clean read--then you need to read this book.
If you're older and thinking about getting this, I'd advise against it. The villains are pure evil in that "bully who likes to be bad" kind of way and the hero is obnoxiously pure. Besides that, however, it's pretty good if a little dumbed-down for the kiddies. a logical plot, solid themes, good character growth, and a cast that you want to like.
