This is book two in the Ketty Jay series. Book one was Retribution Falls.
From Goodreads.com: Deep in the heart of the Kurg rainforest lies a long-forgotten wreck. On board, behind a magically protected door, an elusive treasure awaits. Good thing Darian Frey, captain of the airship Ketty Jay, has the daemonist Crake on board. Crake is their best chance of getting that door open—if they can sober him up. For a prize this enticing, Frey is willing to brave the legendary monsters of the forbidding island and to ally himself with a partner who’s even less trustworthy than he is.
But what’s behind that door is not what any of the fortune hunters expect, any more than they anticipate their fiercest competitor for the treasure—a woman from Frey’s past who also happens to be the most feared pirate in the skies.
I enjoyed this book because it was just a fun scifi space pirate story. This book delves more into characters that make up the crew of the Ketty Jay and what is driving them. We have Frey and his odd obsession with Trinica; Harkins and his fear of Slag the cat; Jez finds out what it means to be half-Mane and the choice she will have to make; Crake can put his deamons to rest; and Pinn and Malvery kinda rotate around the periphery. The crew gets into trouble, and sometimes they manage to get into more trouble getting out of the first batch of trouble.
A fun escapism space opera meant to entertain, and I was.
