On the scorched world of Schism, all life survives in huge trenches, protected from the heat of the torrid sun.
In these chasms, human colonists often find themselves at odds with the indigenous humanoids called Spiders. Jake's airship, powered by ancient technology, takes advantage of the unique terrain, but makes him valuable to both sides of local warring tribes. The captain and crew of the Sky Turtle are forced to risk everything in a fight between these followers of opposing elemental magics. If they fail, it could cost them everything.
Wymore has a great touch for surprises and character in a steampunk sci-fi world. Do yourself a favor and give this a shot!
It's nice to listen to a story that has no bounds on pushing reality. I loved the narrator and the many voices he used. It was great to listen to and easy to follow when the reader is entertaining and diverse with accents and switching characters on a dime.
What did you love best about Schism?
I am new to steam punk and for a very long time wasn't even sure just what exactly it entailed. In many ways this reminded me of the great TV show Firefly which I can watch over and over again. So I enjoyed the introduction of our characters in a new world. I really think these characters and world could lead to many great adventures.
What about Zach Bjorge’s performance did you like?
He really brought the characters to life and made them feel genuine.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes and have a couple of times. Will again too.
Any additional comments?
I love James Wymore's work and can't wait to see if he plans to perhaps explore this world and characters farther.
