Creeper, a scrappy young teen, is done living on the streets of New Orleans. Instead, she wants to soar, and her sights are set on securing passage aboard the smuggler airship Midnight Robber. Her ticket: earning Captain Ann-Marie’s trust using a secret about a kidnapped Haitian scientist and a mysterious weapon he calls The Black God’s Drums.

Like 75% of this is worldbuilding, but the worldbuilding is delicious so I would gladly read more that is set in this world and about these characters.

Hey look, an alternate take on the civil war that's not horrible!

I read the Kindle sample of this a while ago, and even that short bit was definitely interesting! It's on my list to read, and I hope to come back to it soon.
