I read Chris Wooding's Retribution Falls nearly two years ago. It's a fun and entertaining scifi romp, and it will finally become available in the USA next week! For more info about this title: Canada, USA, Europe.

Here's the blurb:

Sky piracy is a bit out of Darian Frey’s league. Fate has not been kind to the captain of the airship Ketty Jay—or his motley crew. They are all running from something. Crake is a daemonist in hiding, traveling with an armored golem and burdened by guilt. Jez is the new navigator, desperate to keep her secret from the rest of the crew. Malvery is a disgraced doctor, drinking himself to death. So when an opportunity arises to steal a chest of gems from a vulnerable airship, Frey can’t pass it up. It’s an easy take—and the payoff will finally make him a rich man.

But when the attack goes horribly wrong, Frey suddenly finds himself the most wanted man in Vardia, trailed by bounty hunters, the elite Century Knights, and the dread queen of the skies, Trinica Dracken. Frey realizes that they’ve been set up to take a fall but doesn’t know the endgame. And the ultimate answer for captain and crew may lie in the legendary hidden pirate town of Retribution Falls. That’s if they can get there without getting blown out of the sky

You can read my review here. And follow this link for a 50-page extract from Retribution Falls.

Check it out! =) Fans of Firefly won't be disappointed!

Being in the U.S., I'm happy to finally get my hands on this book. Heard nothing but positive things since back in 2009. I preordered from Amazon and should be getting it this Tuesday!

It might be of interest to the readers of this post that Wooding's earlier fantasy trilogy "The Braided Path" is reissued this summer in an omnibus edition (in the UK).

I read about this over on Adam's "Wertzone" blog:
