First Flight by Sean and Connor Hayden 5/5

I was originally introduced to Sean Hayden’s steampunk stories through his steampunk short Lady Dorn. It was the first time I was introduced to the genre and when I found out that he was writing a whole series with his son? I wanted to read them.

Okay I needed to read them.

In the beginning of this series, we’re introduced to Professor Pelusian Minus, whose steamsmith has just died. A steamsmith is someone who can communicate with machinary and create extr

First, I love this cover! Steampunk covers are always so much fun. First Flight is the first installment of a series of short stories through Quakeme.com, a division of Echelon Press, intended to shake up young readers. I love the dedication Hayden gives in this story: ‘We dedicate this to all the children out there who are finding it cool to read, shutting off their televisions, and using their imaginations.’ Awesome! This program is such a wonderful thing, I support it fully! Hayden co-wrote t ...more

As soon as I saw the dedication in this book - to kids who find it cool to read, turn off their TVs and use their imaginations - I knew that my son should read it. YA fiction has been crying out for something that is not a paranormal romance, which the bookshelves, both virtual and real, seem to be full of. C'mon people, do you really think that tween boys really want to read that sloppy stuff?
But back to First Flight, young Connor Hayden's first literary endeavour (with a little bit of writerly

Not only does this story have a wicked cool cover, the tale itself is a must read! Steampunk is all the rage these days (so I hear) and if you like it... then this is a story for you! That said, any lover of the fantastical will enjoy this read. The characters are wonderful, as is the setting. An imaginative story it will keep you turning each page right til the end. First Flight is not short on humor either, be it in dialogue or creative names and descriptions.
As an adult I really enjoyed this
