Product Details


“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

“The dialogue was awesome, the details were everything I wished all books would include more of and I continue to be fascinated by the harsh setting and great worldbuilding. O’Keefe masterfully manipulated my emotions and completely shredded my heart and, as a writer, I am so impressed; as the heartbroken reader, I’m anxiously awaiting Inherit the Flame.”
– Erlebnisse

“Heartwarming camaraderie and an endless supply of crossbow bolts make Break the Chains one of the most fun novels of 2016.”
– Cowering King

Praise for Megan E. O’Keefe:

“It’s a buddy tale, a heist caper, a socioeconomic thriller and a steampunk-seasoned fantasia all at once. And it fires beautifully on all cylinders.”
– Jason Heller for NPR

“Megan O’Keefe’s stories are always vivid and compelling.”
Tim Powers, author of Declare and Three Days to Never

“Megan O’Keefe’s prose is so full of fascinating twists and delights, you won’t want to put it down. Go ahead, open it up: I dare you!”
David Farland, author of the bestselling Runelords series

“Come for the heist, stay for the inventive world building.”
– Kirkus Reviews

“A fun, page turning debut.”
– SF Signal

“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.”
– Fantasy Faction

“Steal the Sky is a fun secondary-world adventure with plenty of exciting action, surprising twists, and wonderful payoffs to small seeds skillfully laid throughout the story.”
– Lightspeed Magazine

“Holy sh**ballz this was good. 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

“But there’s something relentless about the pacing of the text, and it picks up ever-increasing speed from about the middle onward – and by the end, it’s an absolute juggernaut of prose, which I couldn’t stop reading. There’s something for everyone – witty banter, realpolitik, elusive and wonderful magic, the occasional stabbing.”
– Sci-Fi & Fantasy Reviews
