Excellent Steampunk novel. And the good news is you can enjoy it for free right now! Don't miss out.

Askaro of the Falcon is a story about a young man who has been born into a life of enslavement on the airship called the Falcon. As the ship gets nearer to docking in the capital city for the first time in seventeen years and Askaro gets nearer to his sixteenth birthday, he faces many adventures and dangerous situations. The author does an excellent job at the start, setting the scene and immediately making us invested in Askaro's fate. The first few chapters set the scene on the ship well and introduce us to this life and society through Asakro's eyes.

As the danger increases and Askaro gets into some dangerous situations the story becomes a page-turner that you won't be able to put down.

There was a section in the middle - a chase - that dragged on for a little too long. I also felt the ending moved a bit too fast and too many characters were quickly introduced in order to wrap up the stories of side-characters we had only just met. Despite these nitpicks, the story was excellent and impossible to put down. I finished it in one day and I will be going back to read it again at some point! Another excellent thing about this book is that it stands alone! Although, I would have gladly read a second installment, I really appreciate the author's decision to make it stand alone.

Overall, this is a must-read. A hidden gem that I am so glad I found while browsing Kobo's free section. You should go check it out!
