A year has passed since Detan set the skies above Aransa on fire, and the armies of Aransa’s new dictator Thratia are preparing to knock on the door of his aunt’s city, Hond Steading. As the city that produces the most selium – that precious gas that elevates airships and powers strange magic – Hond Steading is a jewel worth stealing. To shore up the city’s defenses, Detan promises his aunt that he’ll recover Nouli, the infamous engineer who built the century gates that protect the imperial capital of Valathea.

But Nouli is imprisoned on the Remnant Isles, an impervious island prison run by the empire, and it’s Detan’s fault. Detan doesn’t dare approach Nouli himself, so his companions volunteer to get themselves locked up to make contact with Nouli and convince him to help. Now Detan has to break them all out of prison, and he’s going to need the help of a half-mad doppel to do it.

Goodreads URL Discuss and review Break the Chains

“I must confess that I tore through this instalment, and I’m really looking forward to the next one.”
Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviews

“I am so glad to say that this book lived up to my pretty high expectations perfectly. I loved it. Detan is back and just as cocky as ever.”
Ever the Crafter

“Break the Chains is a fantastic follow up to Steal the Sky. This is what anticipating a new fantasy series should feel like!”
The Conversationalist

“An excellent sequel to the excellent Steal The Sky.”
Reading Trance

Praise and Reviews for Steal the Sky:

“Blend two lovable rogues, a magical doppelganger, and a nasty empire, and you have O’Keefe’s Steal the Sky. It’s like an epic steampunk Firefly.”
Beth Cato, author of The Clockwork Dagger

“The storyline and world building were impeccable as were the depth of the characters that inhabited it. I am really looking forward to more from this author.”
Koeur’s Book Reviews

“Amazing.”
Morpheus Tales

“The tension rises throughout, leading up to an action packed third act, with some characters living up to their full potential. Mysteries keep unfolding, and you never truly learn the whole story, which means that there is now yet another series that I’m eagerly anticipating the follow up to.”
