This is our path.
Many won’t understand it because—for most—what is right is what is easy.
A Flight in the Heavens Synopsis
“I see you my little moppets.”
The king is dead, long live his murderer.
After fifteen years of passive torment, Farrah and her implacable group of renegades endeavour to alter their fates by attempting to assassinate the man who stole everything from them, Daemon Daromas.
Alas, he who wields the theurgy of the gods has no rivals in the lands of Iscar but those foolish enough to challenge their wrath.
When confronted by this ancient and destructive force, the renegades have no choice but to flee the capital and embark on the airship of Iscar’s most notorious sky corsair Captain Feras Sadahl, daughter of the late pirate sovereign.
Their meeting with the corsair, however, might not have been as welcome as they would have hoped.
As Farrah and her allies set out on a journey to find the means to challenge their oppressor, they soon discover that the price of power is steep and the road to get one’s hands on it, perilous.
A Flight in the Heavens Review
The first Tome in The Theurgy of the Gods series is an amazing read. I had to put off reading this for a month because of work commitments but I am so glad I got to read it this past weekend. It is a long book coming in at 509 pages, however it is such a good read. You don’t feel like you are reading a huge book. There is great diversity and it has the start of some slow-burn romances. Again, this is a epic fantasy. A lot happens in this book and it comes to a stop at a natural stopping point.
There are a number of characters in this book and it is told through multiple perspectives. We are introduced to some of the cast of characters right from the start when they break out of a guard tower and the action does not stop from there. Each character is unique and I love them all in their own way. I by far love when our group of insurgents team up with a galleon of pirates. Gotta love me some pirates and rebels.
If you like adventure and slow burns with action packed scenes, this novel is for you. I seriously am having problems finding the right words because I just want to spoil it all! But seriously, Gods, Pirates, Steampunk, Rebels, LGBTQ+, BIPOC, this book has a bit of everything and I cannot wait for the next one! Especially after that ending!
A special thank you goes out to Gabrielle Gagne-Cyr for providing me a copy of this book for review!

About Gabrielle Gagne-Cyr
Gabrielle Gagne-Cyr, author of The Theurgy of the Gods series, is a French Canadian who studied Digital Video Production and Psychology at Concordia University in Montreal.
After working a few years as a counsellor at a youth centre, she somehow decided that writing on the sidelines would be as good a career (though her dream job would be sky pirate – a nice one obviously).
In the meantime, she reads and writes, walks her badass German Shepherd and plays video games (Team PlayStation). And playing swords is no childish affair, friends; grown-ass adults love it too. This one certainly does.
Netflix also happens.
Oh and tattoos. Lots of tattoos.
