Review: Flotsam


Flotsam (Peridot Shift #1)

A fantastical steampunk first contact novel that ties together high magic, high technology, and bold characters to create a story you won’t soon forget.

Captain Talis just wants to keep her airship crew from starving, and maybe scrape up enough cash for some badly needed repairs. When an anonymous client offers a small fortune to root through a pile of atmospheric wreckage, it seems like an easy payday. The job yields an ancient ring, a forbidden secret, and a host of deadly enemies.

Now on the run from cultists with powerful allies, Talis needs to unload the ring as quickly as possible. Her desperate search for a buyer and the fallout from her discovery leads to a planetary battle between a secret society, alien forces, and even the gods themselves.

Talis and her crew have just one desperate chance to make things right before their potential big score destroys them all.

What a creative world! I enjoyed the world-building in this story, and loved the story-line. I’m not a big sci-fi fan, and while I enjoy Steampunk, I don’t read it often, but this genre-bending story was a well told mix of sci-fi, Steampunk, and my favorite, fantasy! I enjoyed Talis and her crew, as well as the characters they meet throughout the story. I loved seeing the different settings throughout Peridot, and the aliens and gods were also fun to read about! I didn’t have trouble understanding what was going on, as I do in some science fiction stories, and loved the fast-paced action.
