    Ahoy me matey's Here lies another adventure with Captain Romulus Buckle of the Pneumatic Zeppelin Unfortunately it was not the high flying swash buckling good time I was expecting There were some good moments but Romulus Buckle and the Luminiferous Aether didn't live up to what I have come to enjoy out of this series I don't want to go into too much detail because I will start ranting and end up spoiling something So please excuse the vague details Captain Buckle first mate Sabrina crewmate Welly and automaton Penny Dreadful head to the underwater clan of Atlantis in search of Buckle's sister Elizabeth and to seek the aid of the Atlanteans in the upcoming war with the Founders The most exciting part of this book was the actual trip to Atlantis Buckle and company have to evade monstrous sea beasties a Founders blockade and engage in an underwater sea battle just to get into the city The following 70% of the book could have been condensed in half Seriously I was just ready for it to be over by the end Not all of it was bad but I felt it was all too drawn out Almost everything I enjoyed about the first 2 books was missing view spoilerAll of the moments on the zeppelin and the banter between the crew was completely non existent hide spoiler

    Originally reviewed at BookwraithsMy rating is 35 starsRomulus Buckle returns in the third installment of his serialized steampunk adventuresIn the first two books The City of the Founders and The Engines of War the focus of the story was on the sky specifically the silvery shape of the Pneumatic Zeppelin cutting through the clear blue captained by its swashbuckling commander Romulus Buckle and his amazing crew And as the beloved zeppelin carried its colorful cast of characters from adventure to adventure the Snow World and its post apocalyptic California came into vivid life; the mesmerizing steampunk societies and their amazing creations pulling a reader in as a horrible threat to the fragile peace of this place arose and entangled our heroic airman and his companions in a deadly struggle for survivalThe The Luminiferous Aetheris a bit different however Romulus Buckle finding himself pulled from the bridge of his beloved zeppelin and immersed in an arena he is totally unfamiliar withuickly it becomes apparent that Romulus has set out on yet another uest; this time to uncover the fate of his beloved sister Elizabeth whom he had once believed was killed in the early stages of the war with the Founders But now the daring dirigible driver knows Elizabeth lives and that she is a prisoner of the hated Founders and so with the belief that she is being held in fabled Atlantis the Pneumatic Zeppelin heads off to the shady port of Vera Cruz where Romulus is determined to find a submersible to transport him to the underwater cityAccompanied by only a handful of his motley crew Romulus’ path leads to a pirate in Vera Cruz This submersible commander than willing to run the Founder’s naval blockade of the city and take them to Atlantis — for the right price Yet he warns his potential employer that the risk in daring to run the Founders naval blockade is very very great and that even if they arrive at their intended destination Romulus might not find the Atlanteans greeting to be very warm — even though he brings an offer of alliance from the other clansFrom this beginning Mr Preston weaves a tale of sheer fun filled with underwater battles and alien monsters political machinations and familial fraticide daring do and mesmerizing cliffhangers Every page is like a roller coaster of thrills and chills; one leading seamlessly to the next until Romulus Buckle’s latest adventure seemingly has flown by before your eyes — the pages literally devoured in your haste to discover how it will all endAs always the strength of the story is the balancing act of beloved characters with daring do Romulus Max Penny Dreadful Sabrina and all the rest might not be the most complex people in literature but they are amazingly likable and have surprising depth for heroes who spend most of their time running fighting and stumbling from one grand adventure to the next; depth which turns them from strangers into intimate friends whom a reader will want to see safely home at the end of their latest adventureAs for any weakness in the story it would probably be the non stop action The Chronicles of the Pneumatic Zeppelin are adrenaline filled affairs; each daring zeppelin battle submersible clash or sword fight leading directly into the next with very little time for a reader to take a breath Oh it is action packed fun with absolutely no dull moments but I could see where some people might like a few chapters interspersed in the fun to develop the world or allow Mr Preston to delve into deeper character developmentAfter having completed my third adventure with Romulus Buckle I have to say this is one of my favorite series It is a fun exciting place to spend a few hours fighting bad guys uncovering hidden secrets and familiarizing myself with an amazing steampunk world As I’ve said several times before it reminds me very much of the original Star Trek especially the crew camaraderie and the daring do of a beloved Captain which is a great compliment in my book as I was a huge fan of the original series growing up Now all we need is an introductory speech for Romulus to say at the beginning of each adventure Something like The sky the final frontier These are the adventures of the Pneumatic Zeppelin Its mission to visit strange new parts of the Snow World to thwart at every step the diabolical plans of the Founders to boldly go where no zeppelin has gone before Well you get the idea But like I’ve already said I really like this series and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an entertaining readI received a copy of this book from the author in return for an unbiased and honest review The opinion you have read is mine and was not influenced by anyone else

    This the third volume of the story in this part of the series takes Romulus and part of his crew undersea away from their ominous pneumatic dirigible There unfortunately for me it got mired in politics and slow storytelling The second book and definitely the original story were written much better than this I was very disappointed that the Whole sagastory was left open ended and unfinished at the end


  4. Jack Webb Jack Webb says:

    Fascinating 3rd BookAnother solid entry in Mr Preston's Pneumatic Zeppelin series Less action than the previous two books but with much history of the main characters and a wild look at an underwater dwelling clan Definitely looking forward to the next installment in this excellent series


  5. Matt Griffith Matt Griffith says:

    The Best One YetI have to admit I wasn't exactly hooked by the first book in this series but I was determined to give it a chance and my determination paid off The 2nd book started grabbing my interest and this one has me on the hook I can't wait for the next installment


  6. Cathy Cathy says:

    Another exciting adventureThe third book of the Pneumatic Zeppelin had a lot action I was disappointed with the ending except it seemed like there should be another book coming I hope so

    The prophesy of a trusted oracle has convinced Captain Romulus Buckle that he will find his long lost sister Elizabeth in Atlantis The oracle warned that without Elizabeth The Grand Alliance has no chance in winning the war against the power hungry Founders Buckle leading a small team that includes Lieutenant Sabrina Seraphim and an ancient but child like automaton named Penny Dreadful embarks on a covert uest to find his sister and forge an alliance with the Atlanteans As hostilities between the Founders and the clans of Snow World escalate the team is forced to hire mercenaries to transport them undetected to Atlantis Unfortunately a blockade of powerful Founder submersibles stands in their wayMax Romulus' adopted half Martian half human sister is recovering from her near fatal encounter with a sabertooth while saving Romulus's life during The Engines of War book 2 She finds recuperating in the infirmary unpalatable and seeks to return to the Pneumatic Zeppelin as soon as possible Her parting from her adoptive father Admiral Balthazar Crankshaft stands out as a tender moment for the normally undemonstrative MaxAlso in this volume the reader relives flashbacks from Pneumatic Zeppelin officers Sabrina and Max I especially enjoyed Sabrina's escape from the Founders and tidbits of her life before being adopted by Admiral CrankshaftRomulus Buckle the Luminiferous Aether is packed with everything that makes author Richard E Preston Jr's steampunk adventures so highly entertaining However instead of being treated to Buckle's high altitude battles between enemy zeppelins Luminiferous Aether features two different underwater games of cat and mouse that kept me reading far into the nightPreston's remarkable world building skills and his attention to detail is certainly a highlight The perilous journey to the troubled city of Atlantis and the description of its architecture and domes practically leapt from the pagesFollow link to see full post at The willery

    Romulus Buckle and the Luminiferous Aether the third book in Richard E Preston Jr’s Chronicles of the Pneumatic Zeppelin series takes a slight deviation from the styles of the previous two and focuses a little less on action and a little bit on world making relationships character and backstory That may sound dull but it’s not There’s still plenty of action but with the added bonus of delving into each character we’ve come to know and love It’s also in this book where we truly dive literally and figuratively into Atlantis and get story behind the Sabrina and the children of Balthazar leader of the Crankshaft clanWe are once again bestowed with a starkly different setting for this book than the other two While we remain in the steampunesue Snow World most of the action takes place under water in Atlantis the never lost city under the sea The Atlanteans base their culture on the Roman Empire replete with burnished armor and red combed helmets Senators in togas and feelings of superiority Mr Preston describes a world of wonder one that seems both possible if not real with an otherworldly uality to it Under a thin veneer of civility and power lies of people that are both savage and scared Those two are never a good combination Whether it’s the mysterious luminiferous aether with its odd electricity or the items on the menu this undersea world feels uite alienFor full review
