Great introduction to the series!
22 March 2017
I’ve had this book on my TBR list for a while and I thought it was about time I gave the author my attention. I’m very glad I did.
Free-Wrench follows Nita, she’s good with machines..I think she could probably fix anything given the time.
The book starts off giving a little background to Nita’s life.. she works in the steamworks which is a very demanding job and we quickly learn how good she is.
A couple of events happen that conspire to change her life forever. Her mother has an illness which can’t be cured and by chance see gets to meet some smugglers.. these smugglers know a lot about the world and know a cure is out there..but it will be a high price if they can get it for her at all.
Nita is happy to pay the price but doesn’t trust the smugglers so adds her services to the bargain in order to keep an eye on things.. this is when things quickly escalate.
Loyalties are tested, relationships forged in the heat of battle and secrets are revealed..It appears those who pull strings hold all the cards..but for how long?
This was a very enjoyable tale with airships and gun battles and one very interesting/fun and nosy lead character.
What made the tale even better was the crew of the airship, the Wind Breaker. Each have their own reason for being on board and we learn a little about each throughout the tale. The interactions between the characters is really what made me enjoy the book, fun at times then at others deathly serious.
This is a great introduction to a series which I fully intend to keep reading. I can only say I’m sorry it took me so long :)
It’s a fast paced, well written, easy flowing, wild ride of a tale suitable for young adults up and at 153 pages it won’t take you long to be hooked in.
