I love this series and the Man O' Wars. Skies of Gold is a bit different from past books and, admittedly, moves a bit slower, with the action only really happening in the end.However, this gave the perfect opportunity to explore Kali and Fletcher's personalities in depth. They were solid, fleshed out characters with some wonderful tension. As someone who values character over everything, I really enjoyed this. As usual, Zoe infuses feminism into every aspect of the book, something I've come to both expect and admire in her books. Just another reason why she's an auto-buy author for me. I love it.I'm sad to see this series end...but I haven't read Nico's books in the series yet. That will be happening soon. :DMikhail is still my favorite Man O' War. BUT these two characters gave me major feels. I couldn't ask for anything more. :)Absolutely recommend you give this series a read if you enjoy steampunk. Though they can be read as stand-alones, reading from book 1 helps.
