A big slice of non-stop, action-packed, wise-cracking fun from the Ketty Jay, and Captain Darien Frey.

Things are finally looking good for Captain Frey and his crew. The Ketty Jay has been fixed up good as new.

They've got their first taste of fortune and fame. And, just for once, nobody is trying to kill them.

In fact, she's offered them a job - one that will take them deep into the desert heart of Samarla, the land of their ancient enemies. To a place where the secrets of the past lie in wait for the unwary. Even Trinica Dracken, Frey's ex-fiancée and long-time nemesis, has given up her quest for revenge. 

Secrets that might very well cost Frey everything.

Join the crew of the Ketty Jay on their greatest adventure yet: a story of mayhem and mischief, roof-top chases and death-defying races, murderous daemons, psychopathic golems and a particularly cranky cat. 

This time, Frey's in a race against the clock for the ultimate prize: to save his own life.

"This is a wonderful story built on a solid foundation. Wooding has something wonderful going on here and I hope he keeps writing entertaining stories like this. The Iron Jackal was a real treat to read and review.." - Pop Cults

"I enjoyed it thoroughly. Wooding’s characters are diverse, fully conceived, and vibrant, and he uses each scene not only to build the tension, but to build his cast’s relevance to the story and to each other." - Attack of the Books 

"Wooding fabricated an incredible fantasy that will keep you turning pages and anticipating what’s next!" - Atomic Moo

"Fans of the steampunk genre will greatly enjoy The Iron Jackal." - Geek Girl Project 

“THE IRON JACKAL, an enjoyable edge-of-the-seat romp full of derring-do and swashbuckle. If you’re looking for a fast, fun science fiction novel that won’t break your brain, grab a copy of THE IRON JACKAL.”Count Gore

"The story itself is non-stop fun. From the first chapter that begins in the middle of the action to the very final chapter, expect lots of explosions, gunfights, escaping from almost-dire situations and heroics that seem almost insane. This one is a page-turner and you’ll find yourself always wondering what can happen next. The answer is, apparently, anything." -  Fangirl Confessions
