#BookTour: The Guns Above (Signal Airship #1) by @According2Robyn #BookReview #Giveaway @jeanbooknerd

 
The nation of Garnia has been at war for as long as Auxiliary Lieutenant Josette Dupris can remember – this time against neighboring Vinzhalia. Garnia’s Air Signal Corp stands out as the favored martial child of the King. But though it’s co-ed, women on-board are only allowed “auxiliary” crew positions and are banned from combat. In extenuating circumstances, Josette saves her airship in the heat of battle. She is rewarded with the Mistral, becoming Garnia’s first female captain.

She wants the job – just not the political flak attached. On top of patrolling the front lines, she must also contend with a crew who doubts her expertise, a new airship that is an untested deathtrap, and the foppish aristocrat Lord Bernat – a gambler and shameless flirt with the military know-how of a thimble. He’s also been assigned to her ship to catalog her every moment of weakness and indecision. When the Vins make an unprecedented military move that could turn the tide of the war, can Josette deal with Bernat, rally her crew, and survive long enough to prove herself to the top brass?

Robyn Bennis is a scientist living in Mountain View, California, where she works in biotech but dreams of airships. She has done research and development involving human gene expression, neural connectomics, cancer diagnostics, rapid flu testing, gene synthesis, genome sequencing, being so preoccupied with whether she could that she never stopped to think if she should, and systems integration. 

Her apartment is within sight of Hangar One at Moffett Airfield, which was once the West Coast home to one of America's largest airships, the USS Macon.

Her debut novel, The Guns Above, comes out in May 2017.






This book hit it off with me right at the start. That first paragraph grabbed me and I just couldn't put it down! I finished this in just under 3 hours and I really can't wait for another one! This was a high sky adventure that is out of this world. Readers who love steampunk, military fantasy, Women who don't take no for an answer, and of course flying will fall in love with this one.  

I really loved  Josette she didn't take anyone's crap and she is one of the best heroines I've read in some time.  I love that she didn't let anything stop her. 

Politics, Sexism, Fantasy, and Steampunk goodies all come together to make this story come alive.  I loved the POVs we were given and the setting was just breathtaking. Although this is the first in a series the book wraps up fairly well.  If yo'ur looking for something new and interesting to read look no further than this one!
