The main character here, airship captain and smuggler Darian Frey, is likeable enough, but not quite as roguish or interesting as the blurb suggests, and I actually found myself more invested in the secondary characters, mainly Crake and Jez, than in Frey. I also found it highly unbelievable that Frey had spent so much time with these characters before the events of the book, yet was only now starting to care about them enough to take an interest in them.
Criticism aside, I enjoyed reading the book, and am looking forward to getting hold of the second one in the series sooner rather than later. Laura works as a freelance editor beneath the grey, pigeon-filled skies of northern England. She created The Fantasy Hive in ; her sanity has been steadily disintegrating ever since.
Retribution Falls : Tales of the Ketty Jay
Look Inside. Fate has not been kind to the captain of the airship Ketty Jay —or his motley crew. They are all running from something. Crake is a daemonist in hiding, traveling with an armored golem and burdened by guilt. Jez is the new navigator, desperate to keep her secret from the rest of the crew. Malvery is a disgraced doctor, drinking himself to death.
Retribution Falls by Chris Wooding
Dorian Frey is the roguish captain of the Ketty Jay and leader of a small and highly dysfunctional group of layabouts. Frey and his gang run contraband, rob airships and generally make a nuisance of themselves, all the while avoiding the Coalition Navy frigates. Retribution Falls begins the tales of the Ketty Jay, its captain Dorian Freyand his uniquely talented crew of misfits. Frey keeps accepting jobs for himself and his crew in the hope of a big pay cheque. His current job turns out to be too good to be true. Suddenly Frey and his crew are running from the Navy Coalition and hired bounty hunters, as he is set up to take the fall after a freighter he is chasing explodes. Dorian Frey must outwit them all to prove his innocence and catch the real culprits
Darian Frey is the captain of the Ketty Jay a battered but beloved airship that is home for him and his messed up crew. In fact, Jez was the only character I was wholly on board with Ha! On board with! Because there is a truly annoying vein of misogyny running through the book. And yet.
