Return to the gritty, alluring world of steampunk with the New York Times bestselling author of The Iron Duke.
Growing up in the dangerous world of the Iron Seas, the mercenary captain of the airship Lady Corsair, Yasmeen, has learned to keep her heart hard as steel. Ruthless and cunning, her only loyalty is to her ship and her crew-until one man comes along and changes everything....
Treasurehunter Archimedes Fox isn't interested in the Lady Corsair - just the captain and the valuable da Vinci sketch she stole from him. When it attracts a dangerous amount of attention, Yasmeen and Archimedes journey to Horde-occupied Morocco - and straight into enemy hands.

Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Awesome adventure, engaging characters, narration good, a story to take you away. Meljean Brooks has become one of my immediate downloads, too bad she only has a few on audible as of right now. I'm planning on asking for the remainder of the short shories from the Iron Duke series to be added to audible and hopefully Meljean Brooks writes fast. I wasn't sure this one was going to be as good as the others but it was fantastic. I will also be looking for other Steampunk authurs out there.
The book is engaging and full of spine tingling adventure. Lady Cosair and Archimedes Fox are a delightful pair that make even misfortunes fun.
I actually liked this better than the Iron Duke. I just love the main couple. They are wonderful together and I can totally see them arguing and having fun adventuring around the world.
My reading and listening tastes are eclectic.
Nice steampunk story with a little sex, a lot of emotional angst, zombies, death, gore, and a real plot that is intriguing. It was a fun listen, however it had some tedious stretches. Wait a few minutes and the action and story will pick up again. Listened to it twice, so it is worth it.
