This book led me on a fantastical, magical world of pirates and floating ships. I felt at times that I was caught in a bit of a spin-off from the movie Stardust and I couldn’t help but have Robert de Niro in my head as Captain Bonny. And a little bit of Jack Sparrow maybe. Like these swashbuckling pirates, Captain Bonny is full of style and bonhomie and is a very entertaining character.
I know that all the characters are larger than life because of the magical setting but each of them is multi layered and interesting. Whether it is the irritating clerk, the stowaway, everyone has their own little story which melds into the whole.
There may not have been much of a plot or rather it is a well used plot, but mix it with the magic and it is raised to a whole new level. And the ending is worth the wait. I think I may be into steampunk after this book. If you’re into steampunk, read this book, you’ll love it. If you have no idea what steampunk is, read it, you’ll love it.
I found several of the characters interesting. Captain Bonny was a man of morals, yet his first love, the goddess Aide, kept him from ever being happy to live earthbound. Then there was Dudley, who made an unlikely detective with a bulldog tenacity, yet an accountant's sharp mind. My favorite was Mister Bales who seemed the Sherlock Holmes of the ship, yet has an unusual dislike of cats.
Overall, the story had a slow build but was seasoned well with quite the cast of scoundrels. It included aerial pirate fights, riding the winds of many storms, a bit of mystery, an unusual mechanical mutiny, a touch of romance, and a few story twists.
Done in a more narrative style of writing, you knew what the characters were thinking and what drove them in their search for fame and fortune.
A good solid story, with a British flavor of writing. It makes a nice rainy day read.
This book was a fantasy and an adventure. The author did a nice job with getting inside her characters' heads. As readers, we could sense their inner conflicts and turmoil.
The ending surprised me- definitely wasn't expecting it. If you're looking for a fun, different read, give this one a try.
