    The strength of this book is its characters uickly sketched but with enough nuance to hint at backstory Great research on ship anatomy and using a garden to power a balloon are just a few of the creative elements in the bookMy reservations come from the dialogue presentation of the protagonist and ending The dialogue is sp

    I found this book to be an interest grabber from the start and the story filled you in on background exactly when needed The characters each had distinct personality and anyone could relate to at the very least Nadya who w

Nadya Skylung and the Cloudship Rescue

From debut author Jeff Seymour and bestselling illustrator Brett Heluist Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events comes this breathtaking fantasy adventure starring an extraordinary new heroine and set in an unforgettable world where ships can fly It takes a very special crew to keep the cloudship. See this review at don t think this title gives a good sense for the depth of this book honestly I skimmed over it on the library shelf and didn t give it a lot of thought figuring it would be light with a yo yo plot bouncing between cartoon danger and feeble character development I was probably influenced by The Star Thief by Lindsey Becker which also featured an airship and The League of Seven by Alan Gratz which featured the same illustrator Needless to say I disliked both of those Unexpectedly I very much enjoyed this one Nadya lives on the Orion an airship captained by the altruistic due to survivor s guilt Nic Along with four other orphans she s learning how to keep the Orion running as well as developing her skills as a skylung with Mrs Trachia Skylungs can breath the ultra light garden air inside airship balloons and keep the plants and creatures that flourish inside them happy and healthy Nadya loves her home and everyone in it except maybe Tam who acts like a jerk and also rivals her for the coveted position of first mate However none of that really matters after pirates capture the adults leaving Nadya to rally the others for a desperate rescue She and her friends must bring all their skills together in order to get their family back but the risks might prove than they can handleFor a book that uite literally has rescue in the title these characters spend far too long waffling about whether or not they ll actually do any rescuing And even before that it takes us nearly a hundred pages before anyone actually needs rescuing So in other words it moves a little sluggishly into the real plot Additionally Tian Li really plays a remarkably small role in the story and her character feels thin compared to the vibrant Nadya Pepper and Tam Salyeh comes into his character rather slowly but does eventually feel as solid as the others As for the adults Nic and Thom play important roles but sort of seem to exist only to do that rather that having dynamic personalitiesApart from these minor issues however this book really outmatched my expectations Nadya elicits so much sympathy balancing her ambition with her loyalty and compassion I really loved how the plot of the book in many ways stems from the character development Nadya and Tam s fight in the first few chapters sets up the real conflict of the book so well without feeling forced like the author just needs to say something so one of the characters has to give a scripted spiel Even before all the excitement really gets going the pace stays pretty snappy with enough character introductions and small thrills to keep it engagingNadya s main emotional arc throughout the book really seems to be accepting that she might not really understand where other people are coming from or what struggles they might face but the author accomplishes this in a compelling way not by screaming KNOW YOUR PRIVILEGE on every page And Nadya helps Tam to understand that he might not know her as well as he thinks either and his difficult past doesn t give him license to act like a jerk The back and forth between these two works so well it s realistic and not overwhelmingFinally I loved that these characters face conseuences They don t just have a grand old time facing down the pirates and lark off into the sunset afterwards And they don t just very nearly die but everything turns out ok The books ends on a hopeful but bittersweet note which is exactly how I like my fiction even children s fiction Especially children s fictionOverall an exciting intriguing and often funny adventure that doesn t limit itself to light hijinks I m looking forward to the next installment
