In Airborn (2004) and Skybreaker (2005), Oppel imagined an alternate history where zeppelins race across the skies. In Starclimber, he takes the reader into space. Matt Cruse is an aspiring pilot in his final year of flight training; Kate de Vries is the well-heeled adventuress who loves him. The two join an expedition into space aboard a new ship and face a challenge more daunting than the unknown cosmos-Kate's engagement to another man.
Why It Is for Us: Old-fashioned in the very best way, Oppel's series is pure feel-good fun. It helps to have read the others in the series, but this world is so well realized that readers new to it will catch up soon.
