Publisher's Summary

The Regime is on the hunt, forcing the Resistance to take refuge aboard the Lifemaker, an advanced submarine that houses a special cargo: a handful of women who can still give birth to human children.

Locked inside his tin can prison, Jacob can no longer escape his role in the Great Iron War. He's forced to face life as a father, life as a soldier, and life beneath the deep blue sea. More than anything, he's forced to face himself.

To evade the Regime's own submersibles, all parties must work together, but tensions are high, and not everyone on board is looking out for the greater good. As they descend into the deeps, they quickly learn that not all monsters work for the Regime.

Action in the dark abyss, steampunk edition

Let me tell you something, Dean has quickly taken up a spot in my top five favorite authors. I have genuinely enjoyed this entire series (The Great Iron War) and actually wish it would have been released in audiobook format before the Coilhunter Chronicles. Either way, this book did not disappoint.

Watching the crew dive into the deep to help push forward the cause of the resistance against the regime is more fun than I could have ever expected to have with an audiobook. Rommond, Brooklyn, Tabera (I am sure I jacked up that spelling), Soasa (Same as Tabera), Whistler (I love his character!!!), and the rest of the crew always bring a smile to my face, a clenching to my seat during the action scenes, and a tear to my eye at times you will see when you listen to/read the book.

The main premise in this story about sabotage under the water was well written and definitely kept you guessing until the culprit was finally revealed.

I can't recommend this series, or any of Dean's works, enough. This was a truly wonderful listen and I am so glad I stumbled upon it (Thanks R.C. Bray!)
