His world is an America with a distinct 19th-century flavor, but radically different from the one that actually came to pass. Air transport is helium dirigibles with gasoline engines. They even have tablets, but unlike the sleek plastic concoctions of today, they have a wooden back and an unknown power source. There is just enough of an echo of our current technologies that their apparently crude (though how crude is it when a table has a button to project a map into the air above it?) but effective technologies are entirely credible.
And, of course, it's a gay love story.
What more can you ask for? How about raging air battles, at least a couple of super-rich villains, a government that refuses to take care of its non-urban cities or its less-than-rich citizens, or even cares to - thus necessitating a "Robin Hood of The Air"?
What fun. What a well-written book. Sean Kennedy does it again!
I really enjoyed the plot of this story, I only have read one book besides this one which claimed to be written in the steampunk style so I am not an expert in it at all, but it was definitely fun.
I however expected more in depth characterization and did not find it in my opinion. I mean, what do we know about Ezra?
SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER
He wanted money and he thought it would be worth to turn Icarus in for money. And when he fell in love with Icarus he realized that it was not worth it. I do not feel like I was reading about three dimensional "person" at all unfortunately. I finished the book and I still do not know much about what makes him tick except of course I know that he wants to succeed in his business and that he loves Icarus. And Ezra is a POV person, usually I expect to know A LOT more about the character in whose head reader is supposed to be.
And same about Jazz and Lady Bart. What do we know about them besides the fact that they love each other, love their jobs and loyal to Ezra? I don't know, I guess when I pick up the books by certain writers I expect more, because it is certainly not the worst story I have ever read, but to me characterization is thin. And about Icarus, well we know very little about why he did what he did, I mean I know we know some, but IMO it is very very little, but at least he is not a POV character. Hoping that there is a sequel planned, because in my opinion this book really needs one to flesh out characters if nothing more.
