Publisher's Summary

The Wind Riders. Fabled pirates, who sail the skies on magic airships, protecting the weak and harassing the tyrannical Clerics who rule the nearby city of Tyr. Their very name conjures up dreams of freedom and whispers of hope amongst the slaves forced to mine Mergoran crystals in the mountains, the only known source of magic in the world. That is, until the Wind Riders are attacked and nearly destroyed by Tyr, who has somehow managed to build an airship of its own.
With many of their ships destroyed and their people dead, the surviving Wind Riders are forced to send a small group of volunteers into the heart of Tyr, the den of their hated enemies, to find allies who can purify crystals, the only way the Wind Riders can continue to fly their remaining ships. Failure would mean certain death for everyone ever known as a Wind Rider, as Tyr is busy preparing their next attack, one that will eradicate the Wind Riders from existence.

More like Episode 1 than Book 1

I think this story has potential, but I only really started getting into it near the end. At the beginning I was too busy trying to figure out if I had somehow missed the beginning of the story to care about the characters. There is an epilogue at the end of the book which I think I would have preferred to have as a prologue, as that would have solved most of my issues with the story. The end was…unsatisfying. If felt like the story ended abruptly. I’ve had cliffhanger endings that annoyed me less because I felt like there had been enough of the story at that point to “hang,” but this story just stopped as I was starting to get into it. I’d almost say this is more a ‘first episode’ of a story than a ‘first book.’

The narrator really helped this story for me. He did convincing accents, giving more ways to distinguish the characters from each other. Pacing and clarity was good.
