Free-Wrench The islands of Caldera are a shining jewel in a rather bleak world. A terrible calamity in the past had blanketed much of the world with a toxic "fug." Those who survived were forced to take to the mountains and the skies in wondrous airships. Life has since been a struggle, with only the most ruthless and crafty able to survive. To spare themselves the same fate, the Calderans erected a battery of guns to fend off the airships of the mainland. They isolated themselves from the madness of the world, choosing instead to focus on the pursuits of art and creativity. Few believe the technologically advanced but socially barbarous outsiders have anything to offer. Amanita Graus, though, is hoping that they do.
Nita's mother has lost her livelihood and perhaps soon her life to a terrible disease. Already the black sheep of the family for embracing engineering rather than art, Nita resolves to leave the safety of her home and do whatever it takes to find a cure. For a price, the bizarre crew of an airship called The Wind Breaker are willing to grant her a meeting with their mysterious benefactors, and thus a chance to procure the one thing with a chance to save her mother.
Free-Wrench follows Nita’s adventures in a steampunk world of airships and lunatics. Helping her in her journey are an eccentric crew of smugglers; the gruff Cap’n Mack, the simple but enthusiastic Lil and Coop, the arrogant marksman Gunner, the surly surgeon Butch, and the irritable mascot Wink. To survive and find what she seeks she’ll need to earn their trust, follow their rules, and meet face to face with the people who pull the strings of their society.


  • Cool book

  • Free Wrench cuts a path through the fug

    By Lestat_de_Lioncourt
    The story is well written and worth the time to read it. If nothing else the characters come to life and the tale is not like anything else out there just now. If you like a tale of pirates and piracy then this will rock your boat all the way to the sky and back.
  • Top notch steampunk

    Just finished ‘Free-wrench’ by Joseph R Lallo, which I got as a free iBook. Pretty good ‘steam punk’ (I.e. alternative tech post apocalyptic). This one’s all steam powered air ships. Reminded me of the game ‘Sky Traders’. I’ll buy the next one

  • Entertaining

    By Gerald the Moorhen
    Great fun, apparently it was finished in three months. Possibly a bit more time and another run through would have beefed up the prose and given the characters a bit more depth, though maybe that's the author's style. The follow up may proof one way or another.
  • Great!
