LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) August 14, 2014
Capable of carrying hundreds of passengers and crew members, elegant airships become the preferred method of transportation and are the crowning jewels of the Airship Ministry in the new novel by author Chester Quinn, “The Airship Artemis” (published by Archway Publishing). But the Airship Ministry has become a target for greedy pirates in this thrilling adventure story.
“The Airship Artemis” takes place more than 100 years in the future, where airships travel the skies daily. In a bold and unheard-of move, bloodthirsty pirates hijack an ill-fated airship, threatening to destroy the vessel and all on board.
The Airship Ministry, desperate to end the crisis before the passengers are harmed, and before their stock prices plummet further, decide on a plan. They send Captain Thomas Lelaray of the Airship Artemis with a team of battle-hardened marines, to negotiate for the safe release of the passengers. From the streets of New York and London, to the burning deserts of Libya, Captain Lelaray must reach deep inside himself to overcome the overwhelming odds that face him as disaster looms on the horizon. With the help of the beautiful marine Lieutenant Jess Yamato, Lelaray finds himself torn between love, duty and survival.
“The sense of disaster in this book and the ability of the characters to reach deep into their strengths and see that they can overcome overwhelming obstacles is what will appeal to readers,” Quinn says. “I feel readers will have an easy time seeing themselves in any one of the characters.”
