Hello everyone! I originally received a review copy of this book courtesy of YA Bound Book Tours, but I got 10% in and stuff came up so I wasn’t able to continue with it. The 10% I read was slightly confusing at times, but still very interesting and there was a lot of folklore which was really cool, so I definitely recommend checking out the book trailer below and seeing if you feel interested!
Welcome to the age of airships. It is a world powered by steam and innovation, ruled by an elusive empress at its heart.
Seventeen year-old Jorun is not part of this world. Hers is one of hidden tunnel networks and lights that dance across night skies, on that has remained separate from the rest of society for over a thousand years. This all changes when a boy appears from nowhere, raving about invaders from a faraway land. Purely by chance, Jorun soon finds herself in the middle of a struggle unlike anything she could have ever dreamed of, and must come to the realization that only she can stop an impending war.
