DNF at 20%I guess since I loved the only 2 steampunk books I’ve ever read I was going to like the third This one is a DNF for me instead Here’s why Mister Bale the second mate is always drunk with a constant bottle of rum in his hand or high on opium The ship’s captain decides that’s a good idea and goes to his cabin and gets high on opium too Then he dreams of having sex with a goddess only to find out it’s the stowaway cabin boy who happens to be the youngest daughter of the farmer where he stashed some crates of opium because it was too heavy for his flying ship I have no idea what age the “youngest daughter” is or how old the captain is But mostly I have no desire to read about 2 stoned men captaining an airship like it doesn’t take any talent at all Actually I don’t care to read about the main characters be high no matter what they do And the title of the book The Wake of the Dragon that’s supposedly where you “go” when you use opium That’s “where” Captain Bonny was when Anne snuck into his cabin and they had sex and he believed it was all a dream The sex was only mentioned and there was no swearing However I can certainly see why there are only 22 reviews on considering it’s from May 2012 no one really wants to read about stoned MC’sAs to the narrator Kevin Marchant was very good His voices were excellent and his emotions terrific I would definitely listen to him again if he were reading a decent book

review The Wake of the Dragon

The Wake of the DragonSeek fortune for the rag tag aerialists who make up the pirate crewThe elements are the least of their problems when they find themselves saddled with an airsick clerk a crewmember suspected of working for the East India Company and a love sick farm girl whose headstrong m. In a steam punk world reminiscent of Victorian London a world where steam powered airships roam the sky and it would seam everyone and his mother succumb to the tempting embrace of opium and rum a robbery sets the story for an adventure around the skiesThe thieves head off in their airship captained by the incredible Captain Bonny while the luckless Dudley clerk of the dubious victim Mr Wyatt gives chaseThe character of Captain Bonny is extremely well developed as he tempts the faits with his flirtations with Aide goddess of the storm winds always sailing a little too close to a storm so that he might feel a connection with herI thought this was a really well put together story that drew me along entertaining all the way I look forward to exploring other books by this author

For this review author Ja D Hakins reached out to me about her novel The Wake of the Dragon A Steampunk Adventure When I was younger I watched a few different animes that were in the steampunk genre but I'd never read a novel The story opens on a pirate ship though the high seas are miles away The ship is in fact a steam powered air ship piloted by Captain Bonny and manned by one of the best and most unorthodox crew around Each one so full of opium and rum they should not be able to walk let alone swing from the rigging ropes thousands of feet above the ground Early on in the story its established that Captain Bonny is a uniue Captain Hawkins blended in my opinion the most likeable ualities in the classic pirate captains in pop culture though I don't feel as though any certain one was a direct inspiration; He retains the stoic nature of Captain Jack's father Captain Teague the relatable nature of Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow and the ruthlessness of Black Beard the real not the one from Pirates of the Caribbean As the story progresses you're introduced to characters that play a vital role in this story such as James Dudley the well meaning nervous clerk Zachary Wyatt Dudley's scroogeish boss that treats him as a variable slave Anne Bardwell the seductive stowaway that longs for adventure in the open skies Each of these characters and plays an important part of the overall story involving Wyatt's stolen rum that in itself gets stolen by a certain group of air pirates The story moves along seamlessly giving you a real insight to the characters and their pasts; all the while taking you all over England and even across the channel into France It truly is a page turner from the get go and the ending is possibly one of the most shocking and unexpected I've ever read Besides the shear uniueness behind the world Hawkins has created for The Wake of the Dragon the group of characters and sense of adventure are all very creative and well done The list of pros I could name for this story is immense but I've narrowed it down toAs I just said the world Hawkins created is very uniue even for a steam punk story Everything about it feels new and wonderfulThe characters all have a depth to them that keeps you rooting for all of them in one way or another even the ones that you really hope don't succeed in their goalThe story itself while being about pirates doing what they do best is fresh and importantly it constantly moves forward and keeps you interested As far as cons go for the story I racked my brain for some time trying to find something While I did come up with one thing its based on a personal preferenceFor the first half of the story Hawkins keeps the transitions smooth between the characters Once the characters all get together it gets a little hectic and there are a few instances where it becomes a little difficult to follow which character is speaking This is only on a few occasions most of the time there is a clear break between who is being followed I was told once by a reader that I like to much to be a reviewer and the fact that I enjoy multiple things made it hard for him to believe the stories I've reviewed are as good as I've said I purchased him a copy of The Waters Edge The Seedbearing Prince and he picked up a copy of Passion Power Sin He emailed me back a couple weeks later and offered me my money back for the two stories I purchased a reuest I turned down Ja D Hawkins and The Wake of the Dragon is another story I would highly recommend to anybody who enjoys high flying action adventure The steam punk aspect may seem uninteresting or too odd for some but I can tell you for certain that if you enjoy adventure stories than you will enjoy this story In the end I give The Wake of the Dragon by Ja D Hawkins a solid
