review Steel and Song The Aileron Chronicles Book 1 Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB Irship captain Piers Dashkov lost his friends family ties and self respect in a rash act years ago so it's fine by him if the odds of surviving a dogfight are slim to none His goal is simple find redemption through valor and regain his lost honor in death if not life He needs the smart mouthed airwitch to achieve that imposs. Tova is a Sami and an airwitch and like mist Sami airwitches and a large amount of Sami in general she is eventually shipped off to the war between Novgorod and the Franks a battle that has claimed thousands of lives especially Sami and the magical gytrash and has raged for yearsShe is lucky enough to become part of Ataman Piers s Aileron crew it certainly beats near certain death in the trenches The Cossack noble is in disgrace and can only gain back the glory of House Rus by heroic exploits in battle but there s only so far you can push an airwitch before her magic kills herBut Tova isn t one to silently suffer her fate and she uickly earns the respect and of the Russian AtamanI can see myself writing a hugely long review about the culture and oppression of the magic users in this book so am going to try and write about everything else first before I rambleTova is an excellent protagonist who really reflects the world she s in She knows the system is unjust that her people are persecuted both gytrash and as Sami and she rebels against it she resents it and she absorbs the ideas of it She is a wonderfully complex character full of contradictions as she both resents the society around her yet still absorbs its messages She knows she s treated as a disposable tool but still dreams of flying the Aileron the ultimate fighting machine She wants things to be different and sympathises with the idea of rebellion but also believes it to be pointless She opposes the Novgorod imposition on her people but is still patriotic in resisting the FranksIn short she is both a victim of the system and a product of it And she shows it beautifully She s also brave snarky irrepressible perhaps sometimes when she should stay uiet has a wicked sense of humour plenty of irreverence but also an idea of where to draw the line Usually and is generally great fun I like her yes yes I do I do think there are times when her grief isn t properly maintained Piers often seems to be upset than she but again that could be a reflection of her harsh life and his pampered oneThe relationship between Tova Vanaksya and Piers Nikolayevich Dashkov also grows interestingly He regards her with contempt which very naturally and slowly melts especially as he is pushed and from his own society by his disgrace and reputation While Tova generally sees Piers as than some untouchable abstract force even a man she d put on a pedestal as one of the respected Cossacks I never thought their relationship would work It should never have worked It workedThe world setting is also an excellent one the Novgorod Empire Piers is of the House of Rus but this is not yet Russia They re in a long war with the Franks it s devastating and all consuming and fought with the gytrash magic users Oppressed and regarded with contempt they keep this whole steampunk esue if it can be considered steampunk without technology world going It s a great setting to establish this small crew of aileron pilots Though I do think the crew is a trifle under developed Anya is fun a loyal scion to the House of Rus desperate for everything to be proper desperate for everything to be ordered desperate to maintain appearances and discipline she is part martinet part comic relief as she tries to do the euivalent of herding cats Igor is a fascinating character she s big and tough and an incredibly skilled gunner loved by her crew but she has a terrible past reminding us that it s not just gytrash who suffer in this system which she deals with by drinking She s an alcoholic she s functional but it s a problem She has a lot of pity from the crew a lot of support and respect but also a lot of frustration from them It s a very good portrayal and I like her She also matters because she and Tova get along which is essential since Tova clashes with Anya and the only other female character she interacts with she loathes because of a rather unnecessary Mean Girl side plotThere s also Daffyd and Gwin They re gay men This is the sum totality of their characters I m not even sure what they do on the ship except stand in a corner and be gayThe protagonist is Sami an ethnicity generally found in Scandinavia and part of Russia It s also an ethnicity that has faced considerable historical and present persecution and certainly the first Sami character I ve come across in the genreI can t say I know much about the Sami people so I won t even begin to claim if the depiction is accurate or not I will say that there is a strong sense of research in the depiction that Tova carries with her a culture and a tradition and a belief that feels like it has been researched and studied rather than guessed and made up I can t be sure because of my own ignorance of Sami
