Jessica Mayer

Politics, secrets, and one warship that could mean freedom for a girl turned murderess.

In an empire ruled by masked lords who wield frightening powers, Riley is a prisoner serving a life sentence for murder and treason.

The Roanoke is the most powerful warship in commission, capable of launching flying air ships. When they attack the prison, Riley finds herself with an opportunity to regain her freedom in exchange for her loyalty and assistance in a rebellion.

All Riley wants is to survive, but she finds herself drawn into a war that will lead her face-to-face with the past she once tried so hard to escape.

I love the mix of fantasy and sci-fi in this story. I also like the blend of cultures. That definitely seems to be a theme here. Pelly is a very likeable character.

The whole haunted hotel only detracted from the suspense for me. My suggestion would be to chan... view book
