Chasing the Star Garden by Melanie Karsak

Chasing the Star Garden (The Airship Racing Chronicles, #1)Chasing the Star Garden by Melanie Karsak
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I read this as part of a blog tour.

I really didn't know what to expect. I was in for a shock, because its nothing like what I expected, not sure what I expected, but way off the mark of my usual genre, however, reviewing it objectively I can see why someone would absolutely adore this publication.

It is jam packed with everything.

I'm not adverse at the odd sex scene or two, and they were short enough that you didn't get bogged down with them and they were the only memorable bits in the story!

I must say, I love the cover.


An opium-addicted beauty.
An infamous poet living in self-imposed exile.
An ancient treasure about to fall into the wrong hands.

Melanie Karsak's Chasing the Star Garden takes readers on a thrilling adventure from the gritty opium dens of gaslamp London to the gem-colored waters of the ancient world. Lily Stargazer, a loveable but reckless airship racer with a famous lover and shattered past, reluctantly plunges into a centuries-old mystery in a romantic adventure best described as Dan Brown meets Mary Shelley.

It all begins on one of the worst days of Lily’s life. She just lost the London leg of the 1823 Airship Grand Prix. To top it off, a harlequin fleeing from constables shoved a kaleidoscope down her pants, told her to fly to Venice, then threw himself from her airship tower. What’s a girl to do? For Lily, the answer is easy: drink absinthe and smoke opium. 

Lily’s lover, Lord Byron, encourages her to make the trip to Venice. Lily soon finds herself at the heart of an ancient mystery which has her running from her past and chasing true love and the stars along the way
