See this review at don t think this title gives a good sense for the depth of this book honestly I skimmed over it on the library shelf and didn t give it a lot of thought figuring it would be light with a yo yo plot bouncing between cartoon danger and feeble character development I was probably influenced by The Star Thief by Lindsey Becker which also featured an airship and The League of Seven by Alan Gratz which featured the same illustrator Needless to say I disliked both of those Unexpectedly I very much enjoyed this one Nadya lives on the Orion an airship captained by the altruistic due to survivor s guilt Nic Along with four other orphans she s learning how to keep the Orion running as well as developing her skills as a skylung with Mrs Trachia Skylungs can breath the ultra light garden air inside airship balloons and keep the plants and creatures that flourish inside them happy and healthy Nadya loves her home and everyone in it except maybe Tam who acts like a jerk and also rivals her for the coveted position of first mate However none of that really matters after pirates capture the adults leaving Nadya to rally the others for a desperate rescue She and her friends must bring all their skills together in order to get their family back but the risks might prove than they can handleFor a book that uite literally has rescue in the title these characters spend far too long waffling about whether or not they ll actually do any rescuing And even before that it takes us nearly a hundred pages before anyone actually needs rescuing So in other words it moves a little sluggishly into the real plot Additionally Tian Li really plays a remarkably small role in the story and her character feels thin compared to the vibrant Nadya Pepper and Tam Salyeh comes into his character rather slowly but does eventually feel as solid as the others As for the adults Nic and Thom play important roles but sort of seem to exist only to do that rather that having dynamic personalitiesApart from these minor issues however this book really outmatched my expectations Nadya elicits so much sympathy balancing her ambition with her loyalty and compassion I really loved how the plot of the book in many ways stems from the character development Nadya and Tam s fight in the first few chapters sets up the real conflict of the book so well without feeling forced like the author just needs to say something so one of the characters has to give a scripted spiel Even before all the excitement really gets going the pace stays pretty snappy with enough character introductions and small thrills to keep it engagingNadya s main emotional arc throughout the book really seems to be accepting that she might not really understand where other people are coming from or what struggles they might face but the author accomplishes this in a compelling way not by screaming KNOW YOUR PRIVILEGE on every page And Nadya helps Tam to understand that he might not know her as well as he thinks either and his difficult past doesn t give him license to act like a jerk The back and forth between these two works so well it s realistic and not overwhelmingFinally I loved that these characters face conseuences They don t just have a grand old time facing down the pirates and lark off into the sunset afterwards And they don t just very nearly die but everything turns out ok The books ends on a hopeful but bittersweet note which is exactly how I like my fiction even children s fiction Especially children s fictionOverall an exciting intriguing and often funny adventure that doesn t limit itself to light hijinks I m looking forward to the next installment

Orion running and no one knows that better than Nadya Skylung who tends the cloud garden that keeps the ship afloat When the unthinkable happens and pirates attack Nadya and the other children aboard all orphans taken in by the kindhearted Captain Nic narrowly escape but the rest of the crew is captured. I love the mix of technology and magic in this story The heroine and the whole crew are interesting both as individuals and for their relationships with each other The setting is great the cloudships are super cool Overall it reminds me of some of my steampunk favorites while still being uniue
