The Aeronaut's Windlass by Jim Butcher
Jim Butcher, best-selling author of The Dresden Files Series and The Codex Alera Series now introduces his new series with a whopping big book in which he gives his own unique take on Steampunk, a gritty Victorian alternative technology genre. Only in Butcher's vision, the technology isn't steam but crystals, which channel etheric energies to power flying ships.
Due to some as yet unspecified catastrophe that has rendered the world lethally uninhabitable for humans, the Builders created the Spires, soaring towers of impregnable spirestone, which contain the Habbles or habitats shared by the sentient species of humans, warriorborn and cats.
I won't go into more detail than this in order to avoid spoilers. But if you are a fan of Butcher, or steampunk, or Horatio Hornblower, or cats, you will want to check out The Aeronaut's Windlass.
