    Good fight scene, too weird alternate history

    Imagine that Germany never tried to invade Russia during WWII. The Third Reich never split its forces and got crash by Allied Forces, therefore the United States signed a pact with Germany and left Europe, leaving its Allies to fend for themselves. Grim enough as this scenario is, there is more: Germany has been experimenting with an arcane force that may change the nature of human beings and with it, the Third Reich is creating the perfect warrior: zombies who don’t feel pain and fight until they are shredded to pieces. But the same arcane force is known to the British Air Force too and they are experimenting in a completely different way. This force can have aircraft fly with just water, that’s how the Dragonfly Squadron comes into existence and, for a series of events, its pilots are all women. The arcane force isn’t something new either. It was known in the British Islands since the time of the Celts… and there is still a bond between that world and the new one. So, this is very peculiar dieselpunk story set in WWII with strong connection to Celtic legends. Which, I have to say, didn’t really work perfectly for me, but it was a different idea nonetheless. Personally, I found the mixing of Celtic and WWII elements a bit crashing, but it can be just my impression. What really stands out for me in this novel are the air fights. The author clearly knows the matter and his action scenes in the air really take advantage of it. His fight scenes between aircrafts of new design (beautifully depicted in the many illustrations) are often breathtaking and move the story along quite nicely. The story is clearly opened at the end, but it gives a sense of closure nonetheless.
