I wans't sure what to expect with this author, however this book reminds me of the old swashbuckling movies of Burt Lancaster etc and the more recent Pirates of the Caribbean series.
There is no let up in the pace of the action, it's fast and furious for a lot of the book. That meant I'd often been reading for longer than I thought. Some of the main characters are only briefly dicsussed until you need to know more about them. This was a different style to what I'm used to, however it works very well here. Now reading the second book. All good so far.
However, on the flip side he does paint an impressive picture of a future earth, following a band of competent and likeable characters - most particularly Romulus Buckle, who is endowed with humour, honour, physical appeal and all the other traits that makes one immediately fall in love with a protagonist. I will follow him anywhere, irrespective of the difficulty I sometimes had keeping pace with the non-stop action in a sometimes somewhat technical setting.
On that note, being set predominantly on a Zeppelin is also an interesting new slant to a saga.
I hope that there are many more adventures of Romulus Buckle to follow. He is a strong character worthy of cult status. Well played, Mr Ellis Preston Jr :-)
It fills my head was with such amazing images having just started reading this genre of science-fiction fantasy whatever I might be jumping the gun and a few examples come to mind but with today's technology and fans hunger for an alternative to Star War/Enterprise genre it may be time for larger or small screen Adventures
