Sky Pirates Over London

Sky Pirates Over London - Michael Coorlim For such a short story, there is plenty of action and intrigue packed into this novelette. With a steampunk back ground, Michael Coorlim fills it with a practical and interesting lead lady (Aldora), some sword play, air ships, historical figures like Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla, and hand to hand combat. There is plenty of good listening packed into this lunch-hour read. If I have any complaints, it is that sometimes the scenes shifted a little abruptly and I needed a few sentences to figure out where I was. Aesthetically, I love the cover art, and, you make think this a little silly, but the name Aldora Fiske is simply fun to say.

Dawn Hyde, our narrator, gave a prim and practical voice to Aldora. Sometimes her American accent for Jack Fowler drifted from one regional accent to another, but that is my only criticism.
