This book is not my typical read, and that is part of the reason I chose it. There were Pirates, air ships, rogues, and high society. I absolutely fell in love with this story. I loved Delia from page one and couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.
We first meet Dahlia when she arrives to Beau Monde to stay with The Crawfords. They run into trouble on the way home and she and her quick wit and fearlessness saved the day. From that moment on I was hooked. The story was full of intrigue, secrecy, and attitude. It was all of these things that made this book so fun to read. And then there is Nicholas. Dear Nicholas. He was just as trapped as Dahlia, but the two of them instantly clicked. The more they were together the closer they became. Both had secrets from each other and everyone else and that just added another element to this wonderful story. I was rooting for Dahlia to get the life she wanted the entire story and I was not disappointed. I recommend this book for anyone looking for something a little different, it was a quick fun read with a fun Steam-punk influence.
A review copy was provided by Rock Star Lit PR for an honest review.
The spires of London grew in the distance as Delia hurtled through the air, her petticoats and skirts flapping in the wind. Delia opened her mouth to scream but her cry was drowned out by the sound of air rushing past as she tumbled toward the earth.
A rough grip on her arm brought her to a sudden and painful stop. Her shoulder shrieked in agony as she dangled in midair. She latched onto the rope that swung in front of her face, but whoever was holding on to her arm didn’t loosen his hold. She looked up to see who was keeping her from a grim and grotesque death.
She could only see her savior’s dark form; his face was hidden in the shadow cast by the airship hovering overhead. She felt the rope hoisting her toward the vessel and she resisted the urge to look down. When at last she reached the airship, a strong hand reached out to help her overboard, and she was finally able to see the face of her rescuer.
