Fantastic! This is even better than Delilah Dirk (here & here) and for an older audience. Teens and adults alike will love this rip-roaring steampunk adventure. In a world where the earth is in the skies and airships sail the blue yonder Sela Windbourne is a stellar female lead. She meets a male sidekick, joins a group of pirates lead by a female captain and runs circles around those who are framing her for a crime. Outstanding story of derring-do with female leads, flying ships, flying fish, pirates and political intrigue. I loved "Cannon in the Clouds" and look forward to further adventures.
