Jason is not a child anymore.
He hasn’t been a child since the King betrayed his family, killing his mother and all his friends in a terrible surprise attack against his home.
He is not a child anymore, but everyone still treats him like he is. His father, his uncle, his sister. And especially Nanny Grace. Jason knows he can help. But he’s stuck washing dishes, tucked away and protected as the heir to the Falconbone family. All he can do is dream of the day when he finishes his ship, The King’s Regret, and flies it to the capital to avenge his family.
When Father flies away to search for allies, a saboteur wrecks havoc on their refuge. Jason is determined to find the traitor, to prove that he can be useful. The last thing he expects is to find his family’s oldest enemy lurking in the shadows of their mountain hideaway.
And for that man to be his only hope for bringing his Father home alive.
Author Philip Ligon returns to the Steampunk genre with his Young Adult debut. Readers young and old alike will love his imaginative world full of pirates, adventure and fantastical airships.

Too Christian for Mainstream Publishing, Too Secular For Christian Publishing.
We occupy the space between both. Life isn't simple or free of trials, so why should fiction be?
We're not a "Christian Publisher". You'll find no limp-wristed, sanitized and boring fiction meant to browbeat readers into conversion.
Harkening back to Lewis, Tolkien, we aren't afraid to express our beliefs in the context of the story while keeping the creativity and wonder of speculative fiction. Faith has real power, in our world and in our books, and ignoring or being condescending about it leaves an entire facet of the human condition on the table.
There is no victory without trial, no dawn without night, and to write without that produces flat and uninspiring stories.
So if you're tired of nihilistic fantasy that revels in the worst of humanity, science fiction without the hope and wonder, adventure stories without heroes, Silver Empire is the publisher for you.
