This is the third book in the "Daniel Blackland" trilogy in which Daniel searches for Sam who has been assimilated into the reanimated Pacific Fire Drake (which, as it turns out, is not the most powerful dragon on earth).
The "Team" is back together: Daniel, Cassandra, Moth, and Jo with Em and Sam added to it. It's almost like they're ready for yet another adventure in this world. Gabriel Argent and Max weren't invited to the party at the conclusion of the book.
We finally get to see Northern California, the kingdom that is in opposition to Southern California. It has it's own Hierarch and culture. We also get to see more hydromancy in this book thanks to Gabriel.
Many landmarks in our world spill over into this alternate history. Hearst Castle, San Francisco, North Beach, and Treasure Island.
Did I mention that there are momentary views of airships in this book? Armored airships.
A character named Gloria Bai was mentioned then promptly discarded. I'm glad that Annabel Stokes got more screen time.
+1 for use of the term "henchminions".
