Publisher's Summary

The known world floats upon the Breath of God, a thick gas similar to Earth's oceans, with land masses accessible by airship. The largest of these land masses are ruled by the rival empires of Freya and Rosia. Magic is intrinsic to the functioning of these societies and is even incorporated into their technological devices. But now a crucial scientific discovery has occurred that could destroy the balance of power - and change the empires forever.

Very Good Read

I cannot wait for the next book to come out. In the audio book genre, the books are successful in large part to the voice they use to tell the story. Kirby Heyborne was the perfect choice for the book. I hope Kirby stays through the rest of the series.

Starts Very Slow, gets interesting, left hanging

For me this started out painfully slow with far to many detailed decriptions. For the first 8 hours segment I was almost ready to leave it. The story line started to pick up, come together and become more interesting to me around the 13th hour. Then just as it starts to feel like a real story and you finally start to care about the characters... boom it is over and you are left hanging with many questions. Obviously meant to get you to move on to the next book. If a cliff hanger is what you are looking for then this would be it and be prepared to have to wait for the next book to answer those question.
The narrator does a good job with the story and the many characters, but in the slower parts of the book he does sometimes tend to drone (him or the book?). However, when the story heightens so does the narrator.
