A new swashbuckling epic fantasy by New York Times bestselling author Margaret Weis and Robert Krammes.

The known world floats upon the Breath of God, a thick gas similar to Earth's oceans, with land masses accessible by airship. The largest of these land masses are ruled by the rival empires of Freya and Rosia. Magic is intrinsic to the functioning of these societies, and is even incorporated into their technological devices. But now a crucial scientific discovery has occurred that could destroy the balance of power--and change the empires forever.

It was the cover that first drew me to this book. The image with a dragon and pistols intrigued me (it is also a really intense battle scene when you get to it in the book). The characters are fun and lively. They are your standard fantasy fair (noble hero, innocent and gentle priest, demon-like bad guys, dragons, etc.), but with their foibles and strengths, they grow into their own personalities. Coupled with an interesting plot, and this book is down right enjoyable. It won't win any awards, but the entertainment value is definately there.

I didn't enjoy this book very much. It was very slow. Too slow. Oh, well. The writing isn't TOO bad.
