Overview

Nessie dreams of soaring through the skies as captain of her own Aerial Vessel.  Unfortunately, her parents believe that a girl's place is at home - and nowhere near airships.  But when an estranged uncle arrives in Aetherland Isle, Nessie's life changes forever. Mysterious accidents plague the family, and, in a moment of rebellion, Nessie stows away on her father's ship.

She learns very quickly that when adventure finds her, it isn't nearly as marvelous as she'd always hoped, for she learns that her family is in mortal danger, and Nessie herself will soon be in the hands of nefarious sky pirates aboard their airship, the Obsidian Star...

Interview with the author:

Q – Is The Obsidian Star part of a series?

A – Yes, in fact it's the prequel to my trilogy The Trinity Key, and I've already planned for at least two more trilogies in the series.

Q – What makes the Aether series special?

A – Aether is more than just a steampunk world. It's a rich culture based in Celtic folklore and magic. When I set out to write the first book, I was fascinated with Celtic mythology. Mixing steampunk with mythology seemed a natural fit. I had no idea how much fun I'd have writing the trilogy.

Q – So why should readers give these books a try?

A – Because The Obsidian Star will take you on a thrilling ride full of betrayal, intrigue, and adventure. Readers who enjoy fast-paced stories full of twists and turns will adore this novella.

I'm such a fan of the other books in this series that when I heard L.M. Fry was writing a prequel, I was really excited. The new book finally came out last week, and I devoured it. I'm happy to report that it is a nice addition to the Aether world. Nessie is the main character in the book. You may remember her as the salty air captain from the main Aether books. She was such an endearing character that it's fun to see her get some prime treatment here. The story centers around an event from her childhood that led her to her love of flying airships. It explains a lot about why she is the way she is and provides some nice backstory on some of the other members of the Stein family. I enjoyed the fast pace of this book a lot! It's shorter than the other Aether books, and that really forces the action to the fore. The pacing is fast but not rushed, if that makes sense. It was so much fun to go along on the ride, and I really hope that we see more of Nessie in further installments of the series. I recommend this book for anyone who is looking for a fun, easy-to-read ride!
