The sequel to Skyfarer was even better than I expected. I really enjoyed the politics on the craft called the Iseult and also getting the chance to hear more of the backstory with the crew – which you didn’t get as much in the last book. This book is based in space, it includes mages and loads of sword fighting, something I normally would be drawn to but I really like Brassey’s writing and world-building.
Definitely rooting for MC Elias, his story arch is fantastic, I am secretly/not so secretly hoping there will be a little more romance between him and Aimee.
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
