So. Much. Fun! Definitely channels into the "old west" vibe, with the claims, pioneers and outlaws, but at the same time has plenty of cool tech that allows the colonists to inhabit the ocean adding a spice of futuristic feel. Not to mention ... Ms. Falls has created a super imaginative world and has no problem letting us all romp through it, so long as we wipe up any puddles we slosh in!
Content notes: No language issues, though some people are prejudice against others for living in a different place and use derogatory terms for them. A couple kisses on page, but nothing farther; it is also mentioned that there is a saloon where a young, pretty girl shouldn't go because of the men who frequent it, nothing more "spelled out" than that. A lot of threatened violence (from animal attacks to out-right murder), but mostly just punches, slight electrocution and harpoonings (no where vital) on page. Possibly more disturbing are the medical tests that certain characters mention being put through against their will.
