Description
Ben Gold, former airship pilot has lost everything: his airship, his friends, and Miranda, the woman he loves. All that he has left is a thirst for revenge, a reckless plan to sate it, and some journal entries from Miranda to help ground him in the chaos. As he spirals out of control, he must survive old friends, new enemies, and of course Ferals, the mindless, violent victims of the global pandemic that shattered the world. Meanwhile, the Cabal, a group of scientists on the floating city of Valhalla, are using the disease as a weapon while the militant Valhallans continue their raiding and destruction across the continent. When raiders from Valhalla massacre a town of innocents, Ben finds a new purpose in doing anything he can to undermine their power. Ben must reunite with old friends and find new ones if he is to succeed. Can he overcome the forces arrayed against him in time to save himself—and maybe the world?From the Trade Paperback edition.

shortDescription
Ben Gold, former airship pilot has lost everything: his airship, his friends, and Miranda, the woman he loves. All that he has left is a thirst for revenge, a reckless plan to sate it, and some journal entries from Miranda to help ground him in the chaos. As he spirals out of control, he must survive old friends, new enemies, and of course Ferals, the mindless, violent victims of the global pandemic that shattered the world.

Meanwhile, the Cabal, a group of scientists on the floating city of Valhalla, are using the disease as a weapon while the militant Valhallans continue their raiding and destruction across the continent. When raiders from Valhalla massacre a town of innocents, Ben finds a new purpose in doing anything he can to undermine their power.

Ben must reunite with old friends and find new ones if he is to succeed. Can he overcome the forces arrayed against him in time to save himself—and maybe the world?

        June 5, 2017
        Khanna wraps up his postapocalyptic adventure series with a capable page-turner. After the events of 2015’s Rising Tide, airship captain Ben Gold struggles to cope with the destruction of his airship and the presumed death of his scientist girlfriend, Miranda. Consumed with the desire to take revenge on those he deems responsible for his losses, he burns bridges with his last remaining friends and sets out to kill or be killed, no longer caring for his own safety. But as he comes to terms with the tragedies that have shaped his life, he finds a new goal: protecting a small band of survivors whose village has been ravaged by the pirates of Valhalla. He risks everything in a last-ditch assault on a floating city, only to make a terrifying discovery. Khanna skillfully depicts Ben as a broken, self-destructive, self-loathing figure hellbent on going out in a blaze of glory, but the nuances of characterization do nothing to make an often tedious protagonist sympathetic, and book lovers may not forgive him for his treatment of a library. That aside, the airships, slavers, cannibalistic Ferals, and visceral action scenes make this a worthy culmination to the series. Agent: Barry Goldblatt, Barry Goldblatt Literary.
