Agent Augustus Elsworth is a Seeker of the Arcane Unknown, mechanic, pilot and thief... or so he believes. When he is caught trying to steal a magic artifact from the ruthless mobster Charles Patrick, he is offered a choice: buy it outright, or forget about his mission. In order to win the money, the young mechanic decides to enter the Cliffside Aeroprix, the most dangerous air race in the world. Can Augustus win the race, or even survive it? “Maiden Flight of the Avenger is a rattling yarn, held together with steam, pistons and beauty.” — Philippa Ballantine, Author of "Geist" "A gripping story that lays down the groundwork for the incredible universe of The Gearheart." — Tee Morris, Author of "Phoenix Rising"

Amazing story, great audio quality, and voice acting. I would suggest listening to the gearheart first. I am sad to hear though that it will be a long time until the sequel to the gearheart comes out. Good luck Alex White.
An excellent prequel
A fine prequel to Gearheart that gives us a interesting look into both the world and characters. Would love to see a little novella prequel for each character. Only thing I didn't like was the fact it will take awhile before we get more Gearheart
