The sensation of falling haunts Detective Joshua Gentlemen to this day. In his nightmares he is still the boy who was thrown from a dirigible while trying and failing to protect his younger brothers.
Very few grow up with the luxuries Valence Peasley enjoys, but all the riches in the world do not compare to the day a boy fell from the sky, and became his best friend.
Joshua is thankful every day for Lord Peasley and his son Valence, which is why this new case so incredibly difficult. Becoming a detective was only possible because of Lord Peasley, and now Joshua must find this wonderful man’s killer. The link he finds between Lord Peasley’s death and his lost brothers is terrifying, because it could mean Val is also in serious danger. Just being around Val again brings all of Joshua’s emotions roaring to life, which could get them both killed.
This is one of the more interesting steampunk stories I have read yet. The imagery of hundreds of dirigibles coloring the sky and hovering over the small pockets of land that are left, is a unique twist for this genre. Joshua’s character is just as special with his devotion to his job, his brothers, and especially Val. When a series starts out like this, you can only wait expectantly for what comes next.
