Publisher's Summary

In a world fueled by greed and corruption, where airships rule the skies and coal mines have been turned into prisons, Scarlett Moon has one goal: survive. Being tough and looking out for herself is the only way to stay alive, but when her best friend, Rory, is arrested and returned to the mines, all of Scarlett's carefully built walls threaten to crumble.
After being rescued by an airship full of pirates, led by the sexy and irresistible Asher Kimura, Scarlett finds herself surrounded by cons and fugitives, and thrust into the middle of a coal-smuggling business. When they take her to Columbus, the one place she never wanted to set foot in again, she wants nothing more than to get away. And her discomfort only grows as she becomes increasingly drawn to Asher.
But everything changes when she discovers there may be a way to rescue Rory. Enlisting the pirates' help, Scarlett sets out on a mission to save her friend, praying that her overwhelming attraction to Asher doesn't mean the end to her freedom - in more ways than one.

Worth your time and credit!!

Wow. Fantastic start to a series! I really enjoyed this book but I shouldn't be surprised. I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I started this book. I have read several of Kate L. Mary books and have never been disappointed. I have enjoyed them all greatly. This book was no exception. She just has a way of telling a story that grabs your attention, pulls you right in and never lets go. Just as with all of her other books I have read this story was well written as well as very entertaining with a creative storyline and a great cast of characters.

The synopsis tells you everything you need to know about the story going in except that it is definitley worth your time and credit. It has the perfect mixture of a steampunk/dystopian society with little nuances that make it a unique world the author has created.

Great cast of interesting characters. Along with Scarlett and Asher all the secondary characters are well rounded and distinct. Scarlett is a great character but she can get a little annoying at times. She's a strong independent tough little cookie that is used to taking care of herself. At the same time she's very closed off and naïve in some ways and some of her decisions while understandable due to her past are questionable. Asher was likable from the start and was even more likable as the story went continued.

The only thing I was disappointed about is that the rest of the series is not available yet. I went searching for the rest of the series as soon as I was done with this book. I wanted more. It is definitley a series I will be continuing with and recommending often.

Heidi Drennan did a fantastic job with the narration. She was the perfect narrator for this book. Pleasant voice that is easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Great character voices. Both male and female. Each character has a distinct voice. With just a slight change in tone her male voices were really good and believable. She was able to bring the characters, their emotions and the characters to life. Very enjoyable. Hopefully she will be narrating the rest of the series.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and voluntarily provided this review.
