Books From The Backlog-Falling Sky


Books from the Backlog is a fun way to feature some of those neglected books sitting on your bookshelf.  You might be surprised by some of the unread books hiding in your stacks. Go to Carole's blog and add your blog post link in to join in the fun! Hosted by Carole at https://carolesrandomlife.blogspot.co.uk/

This seems like a fun feature and I have been planning to take part since Carole launched this so at last, here we go! I have a TON of unread books to choose from in various genres and I'm looking forward to sharing some of them with everybody. 


Ben Gold lives in dangerous times. Two generations ago, a virulent disease turned the population of most of North America into little more than beasts called Ferals. Some of those who survived took to the air, scratching out a living on airships and dirigibles soaring over the dangerous ground. 

Ben, a lone wolf, has reluctantly agreed to use his skills and his airship to help an idealist scientist, Miranda, on her search for a cure. Protecting her from Ferals is dangerous enough but when power-mad raiders run rampant, Ben finds himself in the most dangerous place of all—the ground.  


Ben’s journey leads him to Gastown, a city in the air recently conquered by belligerent and expansionist pirates. Old friends and new enemies are drawn into a struggle that quickly becomes a fight for the fate of the world. Ben must decide to focus on his own survival or risk it all on a desperate chance for a better future.


I'm not a steampunk fan but this has airships and zombie like things which is hard to resist! I added it to my shelves in August 2017.

  2. I've not read a lot of steampunk but I'll admit, it's not something that I naturally gravitate toward. However, the promise of zombies would probably make this one worth it.

    1. I don't really like steampunk myself but this one isn't going to have prim ladies as tea dances and I was curious about the zombies!

    1. It certainly is outside of my normal reading zones which does concern me but I had to see what zombies and airships was like!

  8. I like the sound of this one. I like a good zombie book every once in a while and the airships also sound pretty original. I hope you enjoy it once you get the chance to read it, Chuckles!

    1. It does sound a bit different doesn't it! I love the idea of airships floating around but steampunk hasn't been my thing. I'm hoping this one will be more to my taste with the zombie element!
