Capt. Darian Frey and the rest of the crew of the airship Ketty Jay are used to getting out of dangerous situations, but stealing an ancient relic from a Samarlan museum inadvertently triggers a demonic curse. Frey needs to return the relic to the place it was originally found before nightfall in 12 days, or a demon will be released to kill him in a particularly horrifying fashion. VERDICT Fans of the TV show Firefly will love the rollicking steampunk adventures of the Ketty Jay's motley crew. The action races along, with adventures ranging from tense and gripping to hilarious and absurd—and sometimes both. The crew members are wildly different, but Wooding allows all of them moments to shine and become real to the reader. Although this is the third volume of the series (following 2011's The Black Lung Captain), new readers will have no trouble falling in love with the sailors of the Ketty Jay.
