The Burning Sky, a novel by Joseph Robert Lewis

Taziri just wants a quiet evening at home with her family, but when the entire Northern Air Corps is assassinated, Taziri is the only pilot left to help the marshals chase the killers across the skies of Marrakesh. Together they uncover a vast conspiracy of deposed aristocrats, wealthy industrialists, and xenophobic warmongers plotting against the Queen. 

The case becomes terrifyingly personal when Taziri finds that the killers have turned her own inventions into weapons and her family's survival may hang in the balance. Assassins stalk the streets as the city erupts into a riotous inferno and the country's only hope for salvation may be an exiled Incan princess, her swashbuckling lover, and a crippled airship plummeting out of the burning sky.

Readers are introduced to The Other Earth through this stunning vision of an alternate world where fantastical machines sail the seas and the skies, enormous prehistoric beasts still roam the earth, and the restless dead walk among the living.

A note about the text

This is a work of historical fantasy. Some of this world may be familiar to you.

But in this world, Europe never emerged from the last Ice Age and only the southern areas are habitable. North Africa is cool, wet, and fertile. Ancient nations such as the Persian Empire have persisted, though others, such as the Romans, never rose to power. Some of the countries in this world reflect the cultures and attitudes of the Renaissance while others reflect the Industrial Age. Historical figures appear, though they too may be different from the ones you have known.

Don't expect this world to conform to the history that you know. The people and places are different. The climate and wildlife are different.

Even death is different here.
