Read Arabella and the Battle of Venus (Adventures of Arabella Ashby #2) Online Free - The thrilling adventures of Arabella Ashby continue in the second book in Hugo-winning author David D. Levine's swashbuckling sci-fi, alt-history series!

The swashbuckling Arabella Ashby is back for brand new adventure in the ongoing story of her life among the stars.

Arabella’s wedding plans to marry Captain Singh of the Honorable Mars Trading Company are interrupted when her fiancé is captured by the French and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp on swampy Venus. Now, Arabella must find passage to an enemy-controlled planet in the middle of a war, bribe or fight her way past vicious guards, and rescue her Captain.

To do this she must enlist the help of the dashing privateer, Daniel Fox of the Touchstone and build her own clockwork navigational automaton in order to get to Venus before the dread French general, Joseph Fouché, the Executioner of Lyon.

Once on Venus, Arabella, Singh, and Fox soon discover that Napoleon has designed a secret weapon, one that could subjugate the entire galaxy if they can’t discover a way to stop Fouché, and the entire French army, from completing their emperor’s mandate.

Perhaps I read this at the wrong time, but I found much of this story uninteresting or a tad more grim than I expected. I loved Arabella and Captain Singh in the first book, but hated the 'love triangle' element with Fox. Arabella was just not behaving the best, I didn't like Fox, and Singh was a...

A gorgeous follow-up to a beautiful tale! Normally, I'm not one for things that taste YA. I want blood spatters and swears and graphic nookie and terrible things. But this series is written so teeth-clenchingly well that I forget about all that. I love the heroine's voice, her courage and aptitude...

It can be very difficult to follow a groundbreaking novel in any genre with a second that steps forward, but Levine manages to do so. Following her adventures returning from Earth to Mars, Arabella Ashby is faced with news that her beloved Captain Singh has been captured by the French and is conf...

Arabella and the Battle of Venus is the sequel to Arabella of Mars.  I enjoyed it as much, if not more, than the first.   An adventure story with a plucky heroine and a Steampunk flair, flavors of Verne and Burroughs.  Airships in space, battles between the English and French over Venus. Arabella is...

It is hard to follow up a novel such as Arabella of Mars, a tour de force of Victorian steam punk space opera with a bit of romance and breaking of societal rules, but Arabella and the Battle of Venus not only matches the action and ingenuity of its predecessor but also manages to hold its own. A...

Arabella returns with a new adventure. This time she is off to Venus to save her her fiancé, Captain Singh who has been captured by the French. Set in the early 1800's there is a mix of fantasy and historical fact in the story. Be advised that the heavy duty backstory and world building were done...

Last year, the first book in this series, Arabella of Mars, won the Andre Norton Award for Best Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy. This book continues that story, set in the same swashbuckling, throwback world, to the time of Jules Verne-esque SF when no one knew that Venus wasn't actually...

Arabella's fiance has gotten into trouble and Arabella is off to rescue him....even though he told her in a smuggled letter not to do exactly that. However, this time she isn't escaping without proper chaperonage. A family friend who is very much posh society with posh society values agrees to do...
