In a world fueled by greed and corruption, where airships rule the skies and coal mines have been turned into prisons, Scarlett Moon has one goal: Survive. Being tough and looking out for herself is the only way to stay alive, but when her best friend, Rory, is arrested and returned to the mines, all of Scarlett’s carefully built walls threaten to crumble.After being rescued by an airship full of pirates, led by the sexy and irresistible Asher Kimura, Scarlett finds herself surrounded by cons and fugitives, and thrust into the middle of a coal-smuggling business. When they take her to Columbus, the one place she never wanted to set foot in again, she wants nothing more than to get away. And her discomfort only grows as she becomes increasingly drawn to Asher.But everything changes when she discovers there may be a way to rescue Rory. Enlisting the pirates' help, Scarlett sets out on a mission to save her friend, praying that her overwhelming attraction to Asher doesn’t mean the end to her freedom—in more ways than one.
With a strong female lead and an equally strong male there is a character to cheer on for anyone who reads this book. They’re both survivors of a world that has been stripped of technology and thrown back into the dark ages in a way but they are finding their own way in this new corrupt world.
There are a diverse range of secondary characters and these vary from despicable to loyal loving individuals.
There is plenty of action and drama and a nice healthy dose of angst thrown in just to keep you on your toes. I found myself cheering both the main characters Scarlett and Asher on and hoping they find happiness.
The story moves at a great pace and as always Kate L Mary’s writing is excellent. I hope there is more stories for these characters to come.
I only have one dislike and that is that I felt like there was more story to tell with these two main characters and I sure hope that the author decides to continue on with them.
