Aether War: Book 1

“Breza spins a world that’s rich in detail; imaginative, but still grounded in history as we know it.”★★★★★

Royal Marine James Gray wanted adventure, and got it, when he crews a wooden ship headed to the moon. This was beyond his wildest dreams – one that quickly turns into a nightmare.

A navy ship always has challenges but James didn’t bargain on a killing aether, Ben Franklin’s ray gun and an impossible mission.

England’s alchemists need something only found on the moon and her enemies will stop at nothing to destroy the ship.
James teams up with shipmate Ash Bowen and they fight to save their ship and themselves while struggling heroically to achieve their mission. If they fail England will be crushed by her enemies. Are they strong enough to survive the attacks and come out alive?
