Shiewo: A Fantasy Flight to Adventure (Shiewo's Odyssey, #1)

Shiewo: A Fantasy Flight to Adventure (Shiewo's Odyssey, #1)

Goodreads Description:
The universe of Orberana is a place of great wonder and peril, a dizzying landscape filled with clouds that can talk, clockwork beings that mark their own time, and painted animals that awake in the night.

Shiewo Morose is the captain of a flying ship powered by music. She is also a determined young woman on a mission: a quest to find the Wishing Fish that created Orberana.

Sailing above the clouds, Shiewo and her crew (Erduu the bamboo, Theo the cloud, Livingston the goldfish, and Felix the painter) are headed for worlds of crazed clockwork bureaucrats, tyrannic kings, and tornado children--worlds that will test not only the crew's bravery... but their very understanding of adventure.

Theirs is the odyssey of a lifetime...

My Thoughts:
Shiewo: A Fantasy Flight to Adventure is first and foremost an adventure story. This book is filled with twists and turns and several surprises along the way. The characters and setting are completely unique. When I first read the description I wasn’t sure how I would like it. It just seemed like it might be too “out there” for me. However, Cho also included a link for me to read the first part of the book. Once I read it, I realized that while the characters and setting were different, it was different in a good way.
The characters in this book are different and sometimes if a character is too different then it takes away from the story. This was not the case in this book. At times the characters seemed very human and I almost forgot that they weren’t.
Shiewo: A Fantasy Flight to Adventure is fun, quick and an easy read. Cho is definitely an author with a huge imagination and creates a world where anything goes. Anyone looking for something new and different should give this book a try.   You can buy the ebook for just .99 and this book is well worth the price.
