    Description

    The islands of Caldera are a shining jewel in a rather bleak world. A terrible calamity in the past had blanketed much of the world with a toxic "fug". Those who survived were forced to take to the mountains and the skies in wondrous airships. Life has since been a struggle, with only the most ruthless and crafty able to survive.

    To spare themselves the same fate, the Calderans erected a battery of guns to fend off the airships of the mainland. They isolated themselves from the madness of the world, choosing instead to focus on the pursuits of art and creativity. Few believe the technologically advanced but socially barbarous outsiders have anything to offer. Amanita Graus, though, is hoping that they do.

    Nita's mother has lost her livelihood and perhaps soon her life to a terrible disease. Already the black sheep of the family for embracing engineering rather than art, Nita resolves to leave the safety of her home and do whatever it takes to find a cure. For a price, the bizarre crew of an airship called The Wind Breaker are willing to grant her a meeting with their mysterious benefactors, and thus a chance to procure the one thing with a chance to save her mother.

    Free-Wrench follows Nita's adventures in a steampunk world of airships and lunatics. Helping her in her journey are an eccentric crew of smugglers; the gruff Cap'n Mack, the simple but enthusiastic Lil and Coop, the arrogant marksman Gunner, the surly surgeon Butch, and the irritable mascot Wink. To survive and find what she seeks she'll need to earn their trust, follow their rules, and meet face to face with the people who pull the strings of their society.

    Better than expected!

    When I read the synopsis I thought it sounded fairly played out, but I was surprised! Lamp did a great job with character development, avoiding the absurd, and spinning an excellent adventure yarn!

    Andrea Bates’ performance was excellent as well! Her ability to switch between characters made listening to the story a treat in and of itself!

    Jim Hawkins meets James West and Artemis Gordon

    if your old enough to recognize my references, your probably not reading this book. But you should. I listened on Audible and apart from the sing song quality found the story amusing and enjoyable. read this to your grandkids, you both will love it as much as this grampa does. Joseph Lallo is a superb story teller and the voice actor does yeoman work, only occasionally slipping in an accent into the narration.

    book six was recently released, I see a few more in the telling.

    My new favorite.

    I've been looking for a book with the main character an engineer. I'm thrilled to have finally found one!

    It's just an ok book/series, 3 books for 1 credit

    I really had to listen to this for a while to let it start pulling me in. I did not care for the overly simplistic "crew" character development but the main character was good. I really have been trying to delve into Steampunk because of a previous book (different author). I bought the whole series a box set for one credit. Was I entertained, yes, was it great,no. But it was worth 1 credit forall3? I have to say yes but just do not expect deeply complex characters or events.
