Title: Castle in the Stars: The Moon-King
Author: Alex Alice
I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I didn’t realize this was the second book in a series, so I was curious to see if I could drop right in and be fine, or feel completely left out.
We start our story in the late 1800’s in Bavaria in a story of spacecraft. A couple suppose their children boarded the King’s Aethership, but it has been thirty-six hours since telescopes have lost sight of the craft.
The Aethership is the only hope of the King keeping his throne. Seraphin is convinced that his mother is still alive. But someone has stolen the regulator and the whole crew is at risk! Will they make it back to Earth or will casualties lie ahead? Or will something else entirely be discovered?
I absolutely adore the artwork! It is realistic and so descriptive. Also, I love the tidbits of science and fact the reader receives, which adds to the realism and makes you feel like you are learning something without even trying! I like how it started out with the current, went back in time, and the reader ended up after the beginning by the time the comic was over.
The expected publication date is September 4, 2018.
