The air pirate Andan Cly is going straight. Well, straighter. Although he’s happy to run alcohol guns wherever the money’s good, he doesn’t think the world needs more sap, or its increasingly ugly side-effects. But becoming legit is easier said than done, and Cly’s first legal gig - a supply run for the Seattle Underground - will be paid for by sap money.
New Orleans is not Cly’s first pick for a shopping run. He loved the Big Easy once, back when he also loved a beautiful mixed-race prostitute named Josephine Early - but that was a decade ago, and he hasn’t looked back since. Jo’s still thinking about him, though, or so he learns when he gets a telegram about a peculiar piloting job. It’s a chance to complete two lucrative jobs at once, one he can’t refuse. He sends his old paramour a note and heads for New Orleans, with no idea of what he’s in for - or what she wants him to fly.
But he won’t be flying. Not exactly. Hidden at the bottom of Lake Pontchartrain lurks an astonishing war machine, an immense submersible called the Ganymede. This prototype could end the war, if only anyone had the faintest idea of how to operate it….
If only they could sneak it past the Southern forces at the mouth of the Mississippi River…. If only it hadn’t killed most of the men who’d ever set foot inside it. But it’s those “if onlys” that will decide whether Cly and his crew will end up in the history books, or at the bottom of the ocean.

Too many inconsistencies and missed Kate Reading.

ANY other narrator.
The story was another great steam punk tale of the Clockwork Century by Cherie Priest.
I'm a theatre teacher. Edoardo Ballerini would receive a D tops for his performance with this book. It's PAINFUL to listen to him mutter on and on and on in a near-monotone without the SLIGHTEST emotion, while somehow at the same time managing to be over-dramatic. It's quite a feat, actually.
I almost quit listening several times, as it was nearly impossible to maintain any interest or focus, his narration was so bad.
Perfect book for reading. FIRST book I've ever listened to that I KNEW I would have been better off with a real book, rather than the audio version . . .
In short, everything about this book was great, except the narrator, who all but killed it for me. I read the first two books in the serious, and decided to go with the audiobook for the third one because of a very busy schedule. I REALLY wish I had stuck with the actual books for this one, because I just CANNOT recommend this experience to ANYONE.
