Thrust from his pleasant childhood at the hand of a traitor, Conor finds himself rotting in a dismal prison, despised by his family. Conor's burning desire to fly sustains him, shining hope on a future of freedom in the skies.
Airmanwas a thrilling, swashbuckling, high flying adventure from start to finish. I loved the minor characters with their quirks and humor, but this book is sustained almost entirely by its exciting plot. The setting is perfect, described in humorous and realistic detail. I really couldn't put it down.
This really made me think The Count of Monte Cristoby Alexandre Dumas meets Airborn by Kenneth Oppel.
A few mild ones.
Some sword fighting and fist fighting.
Overall rating: *****
