For romance and urban fantasy fans and readers of Gail Carriger's Changeless and Cherie Priest's Boneshaker, this thrilling historical fantasy adventure features warlocks, fairies, and the unforgettable heroine--the daring dirigible pilot Elle Chance--who navigates the realms between the Light and Shadow.

With her husband, Hugh Marsh, missing in the netherworld and presumed dead, Elle Chance loses herself in the task at hand: piloting the airship Water Lily on commissions across the globe. But as it turns out, her beloved is very much alive--the once-powerful warlock reduced to a wraith. When Water Lily is threatened by pirates, Elle will have to channel all her power as the Oracle--the keeper of the barrier between the two Realms--to try to save what she loves most. As the dark forces of Shadow converge around her, Elle must find a way to breach the curse that binds Marsh. But once released, will Marsh return to her--or is their love destined to die so that he can live?

Didn't realise this wasn't a standalone novel. I also didn't realise that it wasn't content to be a Steampunk/alt-history adventure, but had to be a wizards, warlocks, fae and fairies bonanza as well. By the midpoint of the first chapter I was done with the combination of references to volumes I hadn't read and a mystical system that really didn't interest me.

The story continues. Marsh is still a wraith & Elle is searching for a way for them to be together but runs into a pirate along the way & loses more than her airship.
Great characters & lots of cool gadgets & creatures. My only complaint is Elle herself. The woman who was so entertaining in book #1 is still AWOL & continues to channel a self centred & petulant 5 year old. Getting a little old.
I thought this was a trilogy but apparently there is another book on the way. Hopefully she grows up in that one.
