The first book from my fantasy/sci fi book box subscription, while it took me sometime to get into. Brassey was heavy on the world building and character background, which took a little getting used too. You are introduced to Aimee an apprentice sorcerer who is about to go out on her first adventure with her mentor Harkon and his crew on the Elysium airship. But what starts out as an adventure of a lifetime turns into something more sinister when their first mission lands them in a middle of a hostile takeover.
This was an action packed star wars-esque story, Brassey takes you right into the dark world of the eternal order and their plans for world domination.
Overall, I enjoyed the story. If you are a fan of magic and aircraft battles then I definitely recommend this book!
Book Rating: 4/5
