For Steam and Country by Jon del Arroz

Jon del Arroz is a fellow Superversive and Last Crusader whose career I would like to aid. He has recently been savaged by the Morlocks of File 770, and his books should be supported for that reason alone. The first book of SUPERVERSIVE PRESS is his.

For Steam and Country

From the jacket copy:

Her father’s been pronounced dead. Destructive earthquakes ravage the countryside. An invading army looms over the horizon. And Zaira’s day is just getting started…

Abandoned at an early age, Zaira von Monocle found life as the daughter of a great adventurer to be filled with hard work and difficulty. She quickly learned to rely on only herself. But when a messenger brought news that her father was dead and that she was the heir to his airship, her world turned upside down.

Zaira soon finds herself trapped in the midst of a war between her home country of Rislandia and the cruel Wyranth Empire, whose soldiers are acting peculiarly—almost inhuman. With the enemy army advancing, her newfound ship’s crew may be the only ones who can save the kingdom.
