With the help of an alcoholic pilot and brilliant inventor Nicola Tesla, she must stop the sky pirates villainy, or all of London will starve in their shadow.Excerpt:Lets hope that your mad scientists shields work, Fowler said, jaw set.I have the utmost faith in Mr. Teslas work, Aldora said.Fully charged, the Galvanic Cannons crackled and fired bright white arcs of electric death towards the smaller vessel. It seemed to split as it reached the sphere of invisible ionised air around the Persephone, fracturing and cascading to form a jagged net over the border of the shields protection.It glowed bright white for an instant, almost blinding those within, and the cabin rocked with a slight concussive force, but when it faded Fowlers vessel appeared unharmed.It worked!
