Very interesting mix of futuristic and retro Sci-fi. I've read hundreds of science fiction novels, but this was my first introduction to Steampunk. This book has an engrossing story with just the right amount of technology description. Jason did a great job of blending the old with the new, and making it believable! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Author
While writing New Sky Eyes of the Watcher, life sort of...happened. New Sky was not completed when I took the US Air Force up their kind offer of early transition to civilian life. Yes, it gave me 19 instead of 20 years as an AF Officer, but hey, I still get great medical benefits! In the 6 months since separating, I have been able to complete New Sky, begin AND finish an entirely new sci-fi book called Rifter: Traitors at Teteris (out in 2015), and begin New Sky 2 (new catchy name to come!). So basically, the AF gave me the chance to start my dream job 12 months early. I hope this jump on my part inspires my children to do something crazy in their life and take a leap of faith as they follow their passion...the same goes for you! Follow your dreams and reach for the stars! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Anyhow, it was an enjoyable read. And though it could use a little more editing, the writing was quite readable.
A non-quitter type of cadre gels around a woman named Kate Thompson who has gazed into the face of the enemy and now her eyes glow. She also foretells the future, figures out how to deal with most things non-electrical and communicates with a grand being.
The bigger picture is that Sol is engaged in a war with a splinter civilization of humans called the Tailinn, who have forsaken most advanced tech and made Steam technology embrace the stars...with some help from this grand being. It turns out there was another uppity bunch of humans before them who tried to come back and take over things. Back then Sol and the Tailinn joined forces. Some things just aren’t forever.
I enjoyed the storyline and the character building. This work needs another editing pass but nothing I found detracts enough to spoil the story. The character of Sparrow actually seems like something William Gibson might have dreamed up. I enjoyed it and I’m giving it three out of five stars.
Got my copy from the Author at Denver Comic Con. I look forward to reading his straight up Space Opera.
Family friendly (my 13 year old grabbed it as soon as I finished) with female characters who are not only beautiful but also smart, daring, and funny.
