The Burning Sky (Halcyon #1: A Steampunk Thriller)

*I won a free copy of this e-book in a LibraryThing Member Giveaway*

i was first intrigued by the cover of this book, and now that i've read it,.the cover really stands for the contents of the book..it's as awesome as how it appeared to be..
Joseph Robert Lewis brought his readers to a familiar but different world in The Burning Sky(Halcyon #1: A Steampunk Thriller)..i really felt lucky to be one of the few who win this.
the author mixes intrigued, action, mystery, adventure and even some historical facts to arrive into a wonderful story that would really lure readers of different ages to this book..the story itself is wonderful and inriguing that at the moment you read the first chapter you're all hooked up and definitely would be craving for the sequel in this book.. a really really good book which defines a really really good author!

After a massive airship explosion, Taziri Ohana is the only pilot left to chase the criminals responsible across the skies of Marrakesh. Working alongside the marshals and police, Taziri uncovers a vast conspiracy of deposed aristocrats, wealthy industrialists, and xenophobic warmongers plotting to overthrow the Queen and plunge the country into war.

The case becomes terrifyingly personal when Taziri learns that the killers are using her own inventions as weapons and her family's survival hangs in the balance. With assassins stalking the streets and riots breaking out on every street corner, the country's only hope for salvation may be an exiled Incan princess, her swashbuckling lover, and an airship called Halcyon plummeting out of the burning sky.

Readers are introduced to The Other Earth through this stunning vision of an alternate world where fantastical machines sail the seas and the skies, enormous prehistoric beasts still roam the earth, and the restless dead walk among the living.
