Publisher's Summary

A delicate ship. A fractured crew. A mysterious weapon.
Anaroo is an airship slave, destined to spend her days running on a treadmill, winding the great springs of the Scarlet Albatross. When a storm threatens to sink the ship, Anaroo and her fellow slaves seize the opportunity to escape. Now, at last, she can go home.
However, the airship nearly sank for a reason - violent unrest among the island kingdoms below. The world is changing, and the surviving inhabitants of the Scarlet Albatross will need to cooperate to survive. Anaroo and the slaves form an uneasy truce with the strange collection of ship's officers and passengers, none of who are what they seem.
Together, the mismatched crew will take the Scarlet Albatross on the most harrowing flight of her career - through storms, pirates, bloodshed, and war. In the end none of them may be able to go home.
The Refugees series is related to the Guild of the Cowry Catchers series and occurs immediately after the events in those books. However, Albatross is a suitable entry point in the world of Panamindorah. You can enjoy this book even if you have never listened to any other Panamindorah novels.

a stand alone entry into Abbie's amazing universe

Abigail Hilton has become one of my favourite storytellers. Her uniquely crafted universe... first laid out in the amazing full cast audio "The Cowery Catchers" is captivating and the care she's taken choosing subsequent narrators is first rate. While not necessary, I do feel starting with TCC allows for a deeper immersion in this book.

By supporting this wonderful author you'll also be rewarding yourself with an amazing trip few have had the joy of experiencing...

Wonderful beginning to a new series

I have never liked anthropomorphic books until I found the writing of Abigail Hilton. The characters came alive and I found myself immersed in the world. After the excellence that was the full cast recording of the Guild of the Cowry Catchers (if you haven't listened to or read that series, go download it right away!) I was worried that having only two readers for this new book would be a let down, and I'm glad to say I was very wrong! Both readers did a variety of voices and enabled me to know who was speaking easily. The book itself was full of complex characters that made me care about them, and the author handles cultural differences and even hard things like drug addiction and affairs in such a way that the characters are not simplistic, but fully human and they evoked my empathy, not revulsion.

The author gave me a copy in exchange for an honest review, but I'll also be buying the books as I want the entire series. I'm absolutely enamored of these characters and this world, which I've never said about an anthropomorphic world before.

My only critique is that there are some moments when the audio splices are evident, but they were few and did not detract from the story for me. I listened to this while traveling, and I was eager to get back to the story whenever I could. I cannot wait for the next book!

A truly wonderful read and insight into an amazing world of differing creatures half human, half animal.

Just another well written and exciting piece in this realm of fantasy.
