In the first novel of Meg Merriet's Sky Song series, a fledgling sky pirate becomes entangled in a revolution.
Clikk is a sky pirate. A picklock with a tragic past. An orphan out for revenge.
The Blue Dusk allow knights to brutalize peasants with impunity. As famine grips the provinces, they collect what little harvest remains.
Molly, a child with a dangerous secret, could be the catalyst of a revolution, but Captain Dirk of the Wastrel has every intention of selling her to the tyrannical regime.
Clikk has other plans, plans involving mutiny, sabotage, and a movement that will plunge the nation into chaos.

Exciting, New, Entertaining.
I've only read a handful of steampunk related stories and none involved sky pirates. On that note, I can't compare this story to any that I've read or heard of, so this was a first for me.
I’m definitely a fan of steampunk and this was a pretty good story. One issue that I always seem to have with audiobooks is the narrator and how he or she doesn’t meet my expectations regarding the variety of characters they voice. Thankfully, in this case, the narrator aka the writer did a great job. I think having the writer/author narrate the story is a great idea. He or she is the one who wrote the story and, therefore, know what the characters should sound like. But, with that in mind, it was easy to tell when the narrator/writer stopped, paused, or swallowed her spit in between reading the story. I could also hear sudden pauses as though she wanted to make sure she pronounced the word correctly or even lost her place. So it wasn’t a smooth read. But I would still recommend this story to others.
I think the moment that Baker found out Clikk was female. They'd been through a lot together and he'd done many things I'm sure he wish he hadn't that involved Clikk (talking about other females, showing her his 'little pirate'). I was curious to find out how he would treat her afterwards.
I loved the story about Adam, John and the apple tree. Also when Baker realized that Clikk was a female. He was a funny character. Glad the two of them ended up together.
