10 posts | 15 read | 20 to read
Sky piracy is a bit out of Darian Freys league. Fate has not been kind to the captain of the airship Ketty Jayor his motley crew. They are all running from something. Crake is a daemonist in hiding, traveling with an armored golem and burdened by guilt. Jez is the new navigator, desperate to keep her secret from the rest of the crew. Malvery is a disgraced doctor, drinking himself to death. So when an opportunity arises to steal a chest of gems from a vulnerable airship, Frey cant pass it up. Its an easy takeand the payoff will finally make him a rich man. But when the attack goes horribly wrong, Frey suddenly finds himself the most wanted man in Vardia, trailed by bounty hunters, the elite Century Knights, and the dread queen of the skies, Trinica Dracken. Frey realizes that theyve been set up to take a fall but doesnt know the endgame. And the ultimate answer for captain and crew may lie in the legendary hidden pirate town of Retribution Falls. Thats if they can get there without getting blown out of the sky. From the Trade Paperback edition.

I ended up really liking this book. It's like if the crew from Firefly was a little more hardcore/serious. Pirate stories are the best 😎

A motley space crew each with their own secrets battling old friends and foes alike as they try to clear their names after taking the fall for a crime they didn't mean to commit. With an essence of Firefly, Retribution Falls was quite the enjoyable ride. This has a little more fantasy element to it than your regular space opera but it just added another fun layer. Highly looking forward to the next installment!

This steampunk rocks!

Steampunk can be a little tough for me to get into sometimes, as too many clunky descriptions on how the technology works can make my eyes glaze over. But that‘s not the case with this adventure novel. Focusing on a charismatic group of dashing rogues armed with their sharp swords and even sharper wits, this exciting novel is sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, and always entertaining! Highly recommended!

Branwen This looks soooooooo good, my friend! I really want to read it now! 😀📚 12mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen WOO-HOO! The way the crew banters with each other in this book, it has a bit of a Firefly vibe! I think you‘ll really like it! 😀 (But not as much as I think you‘ll like “Good Omens”! 😉) 12mo
HollyBahling Not book related... but all of your t-shirts are AMAZING. 😂 7mo

I'm in a bit of a reading slump right now. I just can't get motivated to read anything. When this happens I usually turn to old favorites.

And this is definitely an old favorite. If you are a steampunk fan or a fan of the TV show Firefly...this is definitely a book you should check out!

Its wicked fun and I highly recommend!
🤗❤️🤗

I mean...who doesn't like an Airship or two!?

Podie Ooo thanks for the recommendation! I've been lookin for books to use for the steampunkgoespostal exchange. 1y

I still didn't get any non fiction in this month, I read significantly less and I think I'm a little behind on the #PopsugarReadingChallenge 😔
I did however read some poc authors this month, I was about even with physical and ebooks and I'm smashing my #goodreads goal.
Let's see what March has in store! #wrapup #reading #challenge

Excellent writing as expected from Wooding. With hilarious and well developed characters. And an excellent plot with good pacing and a perfect steampunk setting. I absolutely love this series.

Fave adventure series! It was first described to me as a steampunk mash-up of Firefly & Pirates of the Caribbean - not a perfectly accurate description but it's close enough. SO fun.

A fun steampunk series set on a decrepit freighter/airship with a crew of criminals and misfits each with his own secure in a world of airships, politics, Pirates and demons. This has series has been described with some justification as steampunk Firefly.
