Disappointing - nothing like Cowry Catchers

I was expecting this book to be like the Cowry Catchers series which I have listened to several times. It has many of the same characters but unfortunately they are no longer fun and appear to have aged into middle aged sounding old men. How can this have happened within a couple of years. A lively narrator is essential for this type of book. Rish Outfield is an excellent narrator but not for this book. I am over half way through the book and really struggling. I will not be attempting the other book in the Refugee series. But if you struggle with sleep and use audio books to get you off to sleep at night then this is the one. Even the main narrator sounds like he's about to nod off. What a pity.

Another fantastic read in this much loved series.

At first I admit this book was a little difficult to relate to after the full cast version of Cowry Catchers but very soon I found myself absorbed once again by the characters and story.
I would definitely recommend that any reader should read the books in chronological order. I say this after reading the one star review left by another reader who obviously missed out the story of the Scarlett Albatross. I disagree that Rish Outfield is not the right narrator for this book. His voices bring the characters to life in a different way from the full cast version but are never less just as good, in their own way.
The interweaving of plots and characters was excellent giving the reader an interesting and exciting tale to immerse themselves into and leaving me wanting more.

High Tale of Fantacy and Steamy-punky

What a riveting tale of adventure, intrigue and politics. This book takes place as two distinct stories, yet they weave together perfectly.

The first part is suspended in the air in a flying ship, the second a political jostle for power.

I did not see it coming, and now I can't wait to see where it ends...

Thank you Abigail Hilton for another fabulous novel!

I've been spoiled

As a follow up to The Scarlet Albatross this book was wonderful.

As a way to round up the GoC characters and pull them in, I felt a little bit like everyone was making a cameo in everyone else's story and that I was having a hard time finding satisfaction- that is, until the plot really got off around the halfway mark. The book itself is wonderful, but I found I was impatient, so I would suggest that if you want the pay off, hold tight.

I struggled with the tie ins to the GoC series because of the voice acting and pacing. Abbie does a wonderful job selecting voice actors, and her production value is to notch. The writing was wonderful and spot on- but I struggled with wanting/waiting the 'end' resolution I could see coming, at about the half way point in the novel. For me, about the 3/4ths part of the book was when I was really invested and ready for it to get hella real. (Spoiler, I do love a good dinner party- blood and all)

Rish and Lauren do a wonderful job acting this out, but if you are coming from the full cast productions, I would recommend trying very hard not to compare their voices, respectively to those of Nathan Lowel, Chris lester, and Norm Sherman. Its odd to hear the 'voices' of characters that are essentially old friends change, but then again, these two do such a wonderful job of keeping the same vocal quality/mannerism that it comparisons don't mean a whole bunch.

All in all, a solid book and I am very excited to see what happens next!
