Beyond the islands of Caldera the world is a vicious place. A terrible calamity has poisoned the land. Those too ruthless or stubborn to die have crafted steam-powered mechanical wonders and taken to the sky. Yet somewhere in that wretched land there is a cure for a dire disease. With the eccentric crew of an airship called The Wind Breaker, Nita Graus means to find that cure, whatever the price.
Several months have passed since Nita Graus left her home in Caldera to soar with the crew of the Wind Breaker, and life is anything but easy. Their prior exploits have earned them quite a reputation among surface-dwellers and made them a perpetual target of the manipulative residents of the fug. Now a new plot could split the crew and ground the Wind Breaker once and for all.
Ichor Well is the third story in the Free-Wrench Series of Steampunk novels.
Ever since Nita joined the Wind Breaker crew, the airship's reputation has been growing. The destruction of the mighty dreadnought and the escape from the legendary Skykeep have made the crew the stuff of legend. Alas, legendary heroes always attract worthy villains. Luscious P. Alabaster strives to be just that foe.
For months, Captain Mack and his crew has limped along without their engineer, but Nita Graus has not been slacking. At long last she has convinced her homeland of Caldera to offer the Wind Breaker safe harbor. Meanwhile, an old foe has found a new ally. Together, their grim schemes could bring ruin to Rim and Caldera alike.
In this swashbuckling steampunk adventure, the crew of the Wind Breaker go to war. Countless clashes with the fug folk have put them at odds with Ferris Tusk, the man pulling the strings of the entire fug. Rather than wait for him to hatch his latest scheme, they take the battle to the fug. But have they bit off more than they can chew?
