Présentation de l'éditeur

The once-proud Espani nation lost everything to the plagues and monsters of the New World. But fencing master Lorenzo Quesada believes an ancient relic will restore his dying country to prosperity and honor, as long as the military doesn't find it first. Meanwhile, brilliant airship engineer Taziri Ohana is on a routine flight when she is shot down by a secret Espani warship, stranding her behind enemy lines with an odd collection of unruly tourists.

Now thrown together by fate, Lorenzo and Taziri race through a gauntlet of vicious assassins, undead demons, and giant beasts to find the fabled Skyfire Stone in the peaks of the frozen mountains. But when the Espani warship sets sail for Marrakesh, Lorenzo must stop a war that could destroy every nation of the Middle Sea, even if it costs him both the stone and his life.

Welcome to the world of AETHERIUM, where wondrous machines sail the seas and the skies, enormous beasts roam the earth, and the restless dead whisper to the living. Similar to our own world in the sixteenth century, AETHERIUM explores a reality in which many of the megafauna did not die out, including terror birds and saber-toothed cats, and where a devastating Ice Age continues to ravage Europe while African queens rule over the most advanced nations in the world. But strangest of all may be the science of controlling the souls of the dead using a golden metal with many names: sunsteel, orichalcum, and... AETHERIUM!

Keywords: steampunk, steampunk fantasy, steampunk thriller, historical fantasy, historical fiction, alternate history, airships, epic fantasy, dark fantasy, ghosts, demons, werewolves, witches, dragons, gods, Norse mythology, Egyptian mythology, women, feminist fantasy, African fantasy, Indian fantasy, Viking fantasy

HASH(0x948871bc) étoiles sur 5 A fast paced and fun read 7 juin 2011
Par Arador - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
This is the second book in the Halcyon series. I have read the first book as well. This book continues with the same characters as in the first one, but the previously seperate plot lines get merged as the main characters meet and interact with each other in this book. The airship Halcyon is not central to this book, but it was still important.

The central characters, Tahiri, Lorenzo, Kenan, and Qhora all undergo some development in this book. They have depth and feelings and help draw the reader into the plot. I enjoyed the change of geography, the alternate reality Spain is interesting: Espani, a cold snowy land, full of ghosts, and completely lacking in technology. Lorenzo's struggle with being an expert sword user, and instructor, with being a deeply religious man are highlighted in this book. Lewis has created a good cast of characters in an alternate steampunk Mediterranean world. I've enjoyed this series and look forward to reading more by Lewis.

HASH(0x948e8204) étoiles sur 5 Ice Age Steampunk 21 septembre 2012
Par Hamilcar Barca - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Joseph Robert Lewis's "The Broken Sword" is a deft blending of several genres, including Steampunk, Alt-History, and Fantasy. But the overlying genre is Action Adventure. Indeed, I don't think there was a single page that didn't have fighting, chasing, or intrigue; or at least someone plotting to do one of those.

The world-building is unique and satisfying. The author places you in the 19th-century western Mediterranean, but in a timeline where the Ice Age is still in full swing. So places like England and Germany are buried under glaciers, while Spain, Italy and Morocco are in a temperate region where snow is not uncommon.

An anti-killing hero is a nice change-of-pace. The ending is decent, if not spectacular. There are a few too many deus ex machinas, but I quibble.

Even though it is part of a series, The Broken Sword can be read as a standalone book. There are some back-references to Book 1 (which I haven't read), but none of them are vital to this story.

This was a fun read from start to finish. Nothing deep or highbrow. Just an exciting tale. 4 Stars

HASH(0x9490bb10) étoiles sur 5 Steampunk Fantasy 9 juin 2011

This is Book 2 in the Halcyon Trilogy, I did not read Book 1. I did feel a little like I was missing things when reading this book. There were references to things that obviously happened in the first book and I didn't always understand what was going on.

Fantasy is my favorite genre, but I had a hard time getting into this novel. There was so much of the same thing going on, travelling here, getting into a fight. Travelling there, getting into a fight. It was usually the same person they were fighting. A lot of the characters were flat and uninteresting. Lorenzo and his wife didn't start feeling real and engaging to me until almost the end.

I loved the huge bird for riding and the pet tiger, I wish they had been used more. I enjoyed the bits of humor that came through here and there throughout the story, if only it had been used more as well.

I see from other reviews that some people did really enjoy this book, so if you enjoy fantasy and steampunk, give this one a look.

HASH(0x9490b984) étoiles sur 5 A four star steampunk fantasy! 3 juillet 2011
Par Trudy Steele - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
This is the second book in a series and I didn't read the first book. This didn't prevent me from understanding and enjoying the story. But the fact that this book was enjoyable makes me want to go back and read the first book.

The story focuses on Don Lorenzo who is an Spanish ex-soldier who now runs a fencing school with his Incan wife. The story reads at a good pace and has just enough adventure to keep your attention. You find yourself drawn to the characters and wanting everything to turn out right for Don Lorenzo and his friends.

The genre is the Steampunk with a twist of an alternative earth. I wasn't aware of this when I started reading the book so it took a couple of chapters to realize that all the characters where from the same time.

If you are looking for a well written book that has adventure, fantasy, romance, and even a little humor; then read The Broken Sword. This is the second book by Joseph Lewis that I have read and look forward to the next one.

HASH(0x9490b6a8) étoiles sur 5 Nice Followup to Book 1 7 novembre 2011
Par Elizabeth Miller - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
The second book of The Halycyon series is almost as good as the first. It could be read as a stand alone novel as only the main characters from the first novel are brought back. Follow Intrepid engineer Taziri Ohana and Major Syfax Zidan are shot down in Espana and are helped by Don Lorenze Quesada de Gadir and his Incan wife Qhara. Zidane heads back south to their home to let their government know of a war plot they discover while Taziri, Don Lorenzo and Qhara head north in search of a holy relic that they hope will help end war. Well written action and interesting plot and not a bad way to spend an afternoon in the sun. Can't wait to read the 3rd book in the series.
