Overview

When war breaks out in the Russian Empire, airship captain Stig Rayner has little choice but to bring along the teenage girl he found hiding out in his hangar as he flees the opening skirmishes. He has every intention of just dropping her off in the next port, when he picks up his cargo.

Isabelle Feeney Hemsworth has different ideas. Rayner could be her ticket out of the Empire. If she could just get back to London, where her brother still lives, then maybe she can finally get off the streets.

Aboard the Unstoppable Aerostat Fenris follows Isabelle and Stig from the East as they set out to deliver mysterious—and possibly dangerous—cargo to Iceland, before returning her to England.

Book One of The Steam and Steel Chronicles, Aboard the Unstoppable Aerostat Fenris details the adventures of Miss Isabelle Feeney Hemsworth and Captain Stig Rayner in an alternate steampunk Edwardian age.

    very good steampunk story

    This book wasn't very long but it was entertaining from beginning from beginning to end. Having the story start in Russia was a different touch;most of the others always start i n London. I have already purchased the next book in the series!

    more from this reviewer

    Entertaining.. yet.. felt undone.

    My Blurb:

    Isabelle just wants to have a good meal and warm shelter. Life on the streets is not easy on the young teenager. As a storm quickly approaches Isabelle seeks shelter in an old air hangar, expecting it to be empty. As she prepares her bed for the night Isabelle is shocked to see an air ship landing and headed straight for the hanger she is in.

    Stig is the captain of the Aerostat Fenris. He notices Isabelle hiding in his hangar when he steps of his air ship. His conscious won't allow her to stay out in the cold hangar and invites her in.

    An emergency alarm sounds and Stig and Isabelle take off on an adventure neither one expected.

    Lets Talk About It:

    I enjoyed the story however it was so short it felt like it was really just beginning and then it ended.

    There was a blossoming like/love between the Isabelle and Stig never goes anywhere. I'm not sure if in the second book in this series revisits Isabelle or Stig. I hope so only because whoever reads the first book will surely feel as if the other half is missing.

    Together they are in air delivering cargo that both have odd feelings towards. Isabelle is drawn to the mysterious item in the cargo box, Stig is repelled by it. It ends up saving them both from sure death. Though what the cargo item is is not really told beyond it being some sort of weapon.

    If you are interested in this book or series I suggest having both books on hand as the first as a stand alone will leave you with more questions than answers.

    I Also Recommend:

    Excellent writing in a truly steampunk style.

    I have not read the full book yet, but what I have read is truly an adventure in excellent writing. Cameron Chapman knows how to create an atmosphere and a mood with her words that will draw the reader in and create a desire to continue to see what happens next. Her descriptions of events and landscapes are vivid and clear. I am truly enjoying this story and I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of steampunk or adventure.
