Starfinder by John Marco (Book One in The Skylords Series)

A new fantasy series from the author of The Sword of Angels.

Steam trains and electricity are rapidly changing the world. Moth of Calio is obsessed with the airships developed by his friend Fiona's grandfather Rendor, and dreams of taking to the air one day like his heroes, the Skyknights.

But not everyone is happy to see humans reach the skies. For thousands of years, the mysterious and powerful race known as the Skylords have jealously guarded their heavenly domain. But Moth and Fiona are about to breach the magical boundary between the world of humans and the world of the Skylords.
Ever had a book that you know you are going to enjoy, but each time you pick up you have a really hard time getting into it? This is one such book. This is the second time I have been scheduled to post about this book and I still haven't finished it. What I have read, I have enjoyed; but I can't seem to get absorbed in it. I could have written a review pretending to have finished, but I wanted to be able to write a truthful review when I actually do finish the book. It's strange, really. I have read a lot in June, but at the same time, I find that June just flew by and I am shocked that it is already the end of the month.

So, have you read this book yet? Feel free to discuss it in the comments! Also, on the other topic, are there books you have had the worst time getting into, but in the end you loved them? Talk about that too.

I'll be back with a review soon! I am going to go see if my mood has changed and it will draw me in tonight! In the meantime, I have seen only positive reviews and it has a great cover!


  1. I hope you get more into this. Like you said it has had nothing but positive reviews.

  2. It took me a while to get into it too, and I wasn't as crazy about it as some, but overall I did enjoy it. I look forward to your final thoughts.

  3. I hope that you can into it the second time around. Sometimes I find that happens with books I read even though it's good I just have a hard time concentrating on it for too long!

  4. Rhinoa: Yeah, I am going to give it another try.

    Ana: I remember you were only a partial fan of it. I will have to see what happens!

    Staci: Yeah, I have concentration issues, too. Especially during the summer!

  5. I hope you'll manage to finish reading it soon...

  6. I bought this book at dollar tree for 3 dollars on a whim. I have been sucked into it from the beginning! It's a breath of fresh air...
