Publisher's Summary

A fantastical steampunk first-contact novel that ties together high magic, high technology, and bold characters to craft a story you won't soon forget.
Captain Talis just wants to keep her airship crew from starving, and maybe scrape up enough cash for some badly needed repairs. When an anonymous client offers a small fortune to root through a pile of atmospheric wreckage, it seems like an easy payday. The job yields an ancient ring, a forbidden secret, and a host of deadly enemies.
Now on the run from cultists with powerful allies, Talis needs to unload the ring as quickly as possible. Her desperate search for a buyer and the fallout from her discovery leads to a planetary battle between a secret society, alien forces, and even the gods themselves.
Talis and her crew have just one desperate chance to make things right before their potential big score destroys them all.

Amazing

I can’t wait for the next book. I wish I’d had the time to sit down and read this straight through from start to finish. I would have held my attention. Inventive, unique, and merging so many aspects of both Sci-fi and fantasy into one your left with awe and wonder that they can coexist so peaceably. As stated before I cannot wait for the next installment and look forward to all that the author has of the world of Peridot.

A Brilliant Debut

This book crosses genres like chickens cross roads. There's airships, magic, a shattered world, aliens with unknown motives; and that's just the start! I loved this book through and through. I'd be happy to go on another adventure with Talis and her crew any day. Definitely a recommended listen for anyone into space opera, steampunk, or unique fantasy (Because this books works across all three genres).
