Description

The islands of Caldera are a shining jewel in a rather bleak world. A terrible calamity in the past had blanketed much of the world with a toxic "fug." Those who survived were forced to take to the mountains and the skies in wondrous airships. Life has since been a struggle, with only the most ruthless and crafty able to survive. To spare themselves the same fate, the Calderans erected a battery of guns to fend off the airships of the mainland. They isolated themselves from the madness of the world, choosing instead to focus on the pursuits of art and creativity. Few believe the technologically advanced but socially barbarous outsiders have anything to offer. Amanita Graus, though, is hoping that they do.
Nita's mother has lost her livelihood and perhaps soon her life to a terrible disease. Already the black sheep of the family for embracing engineering rather than art, Nita resolves to leave the safety of her home and do whatever it takes to find a cure. For a price, the bizarre crew of an airship called The Wind Breaker are willing to grant her a meeting with their mysterious benefactors, and thus a chance to procure the one thing with a chance to save her mother.
Free-Wrench follows Nita’s adventures in a steampunk world of airships and lunatics. Helping her in her journey are an eccentric crew of smugglers; the gruff Cap’n Mack, the simple but enthusiastic Lil and Coop, the arrogant marksman Gunner, the surly surgeon Butch, and the irritable mascot Wink. To survive and find what she seeks she’ll need to earn their trust, follow their rules, and meet face to face with the people who pull the strings of their society.

    I read entirely too much bad science fiction, but this was a cut above. The characters were not two-dimensional and the world exposition was revealed without anyone going into long-winded speechifying mode. The story played out in a logical manner even though there were a few cracks that were glossed over to move the plot along. All in all, the author maintained the pacing and kept a good balance between dialog and description in his writing. I enjoyed reading this more than any other science fiction books lately. I look forward to the continuing adventures of Nita and the crew of the Wind Breaker.

    A better than average book, my first in the genre, it was interesting & fun, but had a good deal of predictable outcomes! I recommend it, as it doesn't require a huge commitment and reads generally smoothly!

    For those of us who grew up watching Disney this book gives very similar undertones to Atlantis and treasure planet one of the best things I've seen is it captures the best elements of treasure planet the movie and the original treasure island book with a slow start it has the best elements of the story without being too childish and quirky my one complaint is that the Fug people have descriptions that are very lacking I have mental images of all the other characters but I just couldn't seem to see the fug people in my head
