Product description

Product Description

In a post-apocalyptic world of endless snow, eighteen-year-old Captain Romulus Buckle and the stalwart crew of the Pneumatic Zeppelin must embark on a perilous mission to rescue their kidnapped leader, Balthazar Crankshaft, from the impenetrable City of the Founders. Steaming over a territory once known as Southern California–before it was devastated in the alien war–Buckle navigates his massive airship through skies infested with enemy war zeppelins and ravenous alien beasties in this swashbuckling and high-octane steampunk adventure. Life is desperate in the Snow World–and death is quick–Buckle and his ship’s company must brave poisoned wastelands of noxious mustard and do battle with forgewalkers, steampipers and armored locomotives as they plunge from the skies into the underground prison warrens of the fortress-city.

Captain Romulus Buckle must lead the Pneumatic Zeppelin and its crew of never-do-wells on a desperate mission where he must risk everything to save Balthazar and attempt to prevent a catastrophic war which could wipe out all that is left of civilization and the entire human race.

This is a fast paced adventure. The crew of the Pneumatic Zeppelin on a mission to rescue their leader and two other leaders from rival clans, held by their common enemy, The Founders encounter many challenges along the way.
Almost from the very start of the journey, Romulus Buckle goes from one death defying skirmish to another, almost without pausing for a breath.
Part of the enjoyment that I got, from reading this book was from finding character names borrowed from history, literature, movies and even comics.
I am looking forward to reading the next adventure

A great read. Post apocalyptic Martian invaded earth (west coast US) meets an airship Errol Flynn adventure.
Preston's magnificent use of language and rich imagery builds strong characters, creates mental images that are crisp with succinct detail. This overlays the development of a simple and engaging story. You have this continuous fly on the wall sensation; so close you could almost be there. (Yes there is a sequel and I will buy it.)

Reasonably refreshing take on a dystopian future. A bit short on details and probability but enough interesting characters,plot twist, humour and a successful and optimistic ending. Good lazy afternoon read. Will take in the sequel.

I purchased this book as my first choice. A lucky one at that. This is an Adventure book young to mid age readers and or listeners, that have very little to do with novel books.
