What the Varchar?
Synopsis: A steampunk adventure with a touch of romance. When Lady Arabella Trunkett’s father, the Lord High Minister of Urbannia, is kidnapped, suspicion points to the mysterious country of Gandiss and the world is thrown into political upheaval. But Arabella is convinced the more sinister nation of Carabarras is to blame, urged on by a mad scientist seeking revenge. She sets out on a dangerous airship adventure across numerous exotic locales to rescue her father before war breaks out. Not only is she faced with danger from mysterious assassins, slaver traders and air-pirates, the fickle hand of fate adds an additional complication to her trials. Unfortunately, the captain of the only airship available for charter is a man who left her at the altar. For eight years she's wanted nothing more than to see him dead. But now he's her only hope.
This was by far an usual story line for me which is what caught my interest. We usually only see movies with so this type of story line that includes, mystery, romance and such unusual characters. Lara did a wonderful job at keeping your attention from beginning to end and developed each character's personality very well. Just when you think you know what will happen next she throws in a curve ball. Really good unique read!
