I purchased this novella by accident, so I really, really wanted to like it. And I did, I think, but I was kind of left feeling like I had missed something somewhere. The characters are well-developed, and it's obvious that the author made an effort to ensure that they all had some backstory to give them some depth. The plot was interesting and kept me engaged. However, it felt like a lot of lead-up and little finish. When the story ended, I was stymied as to why the author would leave it at tha ...more

A friend gave me this book as a gift. My initial impression was not positive, because it looks self-published, has an unfortunate cover, and has supernatural characters in a steampunk setting. I only started to read it because A) it was given to me by a dear friend and B) my boyfriend dared me to after I read him a couple passages. I never expected to get sucked into it and actually enjoy it. The world reminded me of the Parasol Protectorate series which I like. The characters were interesting. ...more

It is hard to balance being an airship captain with being a vampire, but Captain Adair pulls it off masterfully in this tale of sky pirates, abusive leadership, and deception.

The overall descriptions of the environments are so vivid you almost believe you are a part of the book.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes vampires or action adventure books. It is well worth the read and a g

A fun introduction to a new steampunk series about a pirate airship. This was the first steampunk novella I ever read so I didn't know what to expect, but I loved the colorful characters and exciting plot. I'm eager to read the next book in the series!

Freaking awesome! My only complaint is that I have to wait for the next installment! I couldn't get enough of this world and it's characters and I can't wait for more adventures!

Quite engaging. I enjoyed it, for the concept, the characters and the action, but it was short -- a novella, as opposed to a novel. I do look forward to future offerings.
