Product Description

In the world of The Ether Chronicles, the Mechanical War rages on, and appearances are almost always deceiving . . . The prim professor Daphne Carlisle may be a scholar, but she's far more comfort-able out in the field than lost in a stack of books. Still, when her parents are kidnapped by a notorious warlord, she knows she'll need more than quick thinking if she is to reach them in time. Daphne's only hope for getting across enemy territory is an airship powered and navigated by Mikhail Denisov, a rogue Man O' War who is as seductive as he is untrustworthy. The jaded mercenary Mikhail will do anything for the right price, and he's certain he has this mission--and Daphne--figured out: a simple job and a beautiful but sheltered Englishwoman. But as they traverse the skies above the Mediterranean and Arabia, Mikhail learns the fight ahead is anything but simple, and his lovely passenger is not entirely what she seems. The only thing Mikhail is certain of is their shared desire--both unexpected and dangerous.

This story had a lot of potential but it was just OK. I wanted to start this series but wasn't sure where to start as none of the synopsis particularly grabbed my attention. But then, the male MC in this one has a wicked mohawk so enough said.

The characters were very very serious, too serious for a steampunk novel to be honest. The romance was very instantaneous, which is fair enough, but then it crashed a bit with their very serious feelings towards each other, like respect and appreciate rather than attraction and desire. As a result the dialogue between the two main characters was just too cheesy for my taste specially since they mainly interact with each other and no one else.

It needed a bit more fun and any sort of secondary character would have helped I think. Not that there aren't any other characters in this, there is the "evil warlord" and the "not-so-evil warlady" the "former-friend-now-mortal-enemy" and the "parents" but they all felt like silhouettes and cliches of what could have been characters but were only extras and placeholders.

Well-written and entertaining novel in the "Man o' War" series, strong heroine and twists and turns. A little slow to get going but then the story pulls you along.
