My first review – from writer Kathryn Hinds. Nice!
“This is the story of Chenda, a pampered young woman suddenly left alone in the world, who embarks on a journey of adventure and self-discovery. First she makes a new friend, a brilliant professor of geology who is able to arrange for the two of them to get passage aboard an airship bound across the sea. On the voyage Chenda acquires two more companions, and begins to find new capabilities within herself. She has been told she has a destiny to fulfill, but as its nature gradually reveals itself, she is more surprised than anyone.
I had high hopes for CHENDA AND THE AIRSHIP BROFMAN when I first heard of it, and I was not disappointed. This was a fast-paced read that I found hard to put down, always eager to find out what would happen to Chenda and her friends next–how they would meet their latest challenge or deal with their newest revelation. In all, I would characterize this as a very satisfying adventure story, mostly a light read but with occasional moments of startling depth and insight. Moreover, it was such a pleasure to spend time with these characters that I was sorry to say good-bye to them when the book ended–hopefully they’ll be off on another adventure in the not-too-distant future!”
