Airborn is a re-imagined high seas pirate, adventure, survival story transformed into a part fantasy, part science fiction story. And it is wonderful. Matt Cruse has always dreamed of working on one of the luxury dirigible (blimp) cruise ships that travel the skies. Matt, his shipmates, and the passengers on the airship, contend with pirate attacks, deadly storms, being stranded on an uncharted island, cruel villains, and giant sky creatures. Although Airborn is a formulaic fantasy adventure, it also has well developed interesting characters, strong science elements and gripping descriptions of the settings and conflicts. An entertaining and well crafted read.
