A sabotaged airship.
A recovering opium addict.
A messenger with life-shattering news.

With the 1824 British airship qualifying race only weeks away, Lily Stargazer is at the top of her game. She’s racing like a pro, truly in love, and living clean. But on one ill-omened day, everything changes.

Pulled head-long into the ancient secrets of the realm, Lily soon finds herself embroiled in Celtic mysteries and fairy lore. And she’s not quite sure how she got there, or even if she wants to be involved. But Lily soon finds herself chasing the spirit of the realm while putting her own ghosts to rest. And only accepting the truth–about her heart and her country–can save her.

5 Stars (5 / 5)
 

“Byron was the kind of man every mother warned her daughter about, but my mother had tried to drown me in a river, so I pretty much just ran on instinct.”

Man o man, where to begin with this book?! While Chasing the Star Garden took us on an adventure across europe. The green fairy is trickier when being chased and leads through a much more mysterious place. The past.

Flying through the spectrum of emotions like.. well very much like the Stargazer itself flying across the sky this story runs from elated to heartbroken and back again. We flash back and forth in time too quite a bit between the past and the present, giving a lot of insight into the relationships between the characters.

A portion of the story seems to be more of a setup for the next book as it just teases you with the fleeting hints of a grand conspiracy, new enemies, and new friends. An outstanding sequel, Chasing the Green Fairy has just as much action and heart as its predecessor though perhaps with a little less debauchery.

About Melanie Karsak

Melanie Karsak grew up in rural northwestern Pennsylvania where there wasn’t much to do but read books and go for hikes. She wrote her first novel, a gripping piece about a 1920s stage actress, when she was 12. Today, Melanie, a steampunk connoisseur, white elephant collector, and caffeine junkie, lives in Florida with her husband and two children. She is an Instructor of English at Eastern Florida State College.

A simple man with complex tastes. He's able to leap genres in a single bound, enjoying a wide variety of books. A lover of multiple fandoms he's always willing to Boldy Go hunting Horcruxes as long as The Force is with him. And for some reason decided that doing this bio in the third person sounded better. But in all seriousness, I promote books and authors that interest me. I love covers and blurbs that catch my eye. And love to get lost in a forest of words.
