Disclaimer: I received an e-arc for free prior to publication from NetGalley/the publisher so that I could read and review it. All opinions are my own. This one actually came out in February but I finally got around to reading it (I am not good at reading e-books).
Title: The Philosopher’s Flight
Author: Tom Miller
Rating: 4/5 ⭐
I thought this was a really fun read and I love when books mix historical fiction and fantasy. The magic/science system was really unique and intriguing and was made even better by it taking place in an alternative historical timeline.
I loved the group dynamics and relationships in the story. Robert was a great protagonist who you can’t help but like. Danielle and Jake are fierce women who I deeply admire, despite their flaws. Unger is just the kind of friend I would like to have.
The social commentary was a lot of fun and Roberts’ moral dilemmas made him even more relateable. Questions of what can and should be justified in wartime are never easy and never straightforward but I thought the book did a good job of addressing them.
Overall, it was an enjoyable read and I see it listed as part of an Untitled series on Goodreads so I’m hoping there will be more!
