Description

Murder and mayhem derail a con-man’s carefully laid schemes in this swashbuckling debut that blends elements of Firefly and steampunk
 
Detan Honding, a wanted conman of noble birth and ignoble tongue, has found himself in the oasis city of Aransa. He and his trusted companion, Tibs, may have pulled off one too many cons against the city’s elite and need to make a quick escape. They set their sights on their biggest heist yet—the gorgeous airship of the exiled commodore Thratia. 

But in the middle of his scheme, a face changer known as a doppel starts murdering key members of Aransa’s government. The sudden paranoia makes Detan’s plans of stealing Thratia’s ship that much harder. And with this sudden power vacuum, Thratia can solidify her power and wreak havoc against the Empire. But the doppel isn’t working for Thratia and has her own intentions. Did Detan accidentally walk into a revolution and a crusade? He has to be careful—there’s a reason most people think he’s dead. And if his dangerous secret gets revealed, he has a lot more to worry about than a stolen airship.

Featured Reviews

The first novel in the Scorched Continent series, STEAL THE SKY is an entertaining fantasy novel: plenty of action and mystery, O'Keefe's writing is engaging throughout. There's some good humour sprinkled into the story, and the characters are well-drawn. A strong start to the series. Looking forward to reading the rest of them.
