The first in an all new fantasy series from USA TODAY Bestseller, David Dalglish
Six islands float high above the Endless Ocean, where humanity's final remnants are locked in brutal civil war.
Their parents slain in battle, twins Kael and Brenna Skyborn are training to be Seraphim, elite soldiers of aerial combat who wield elements of ice, fire, stone and lightning.
When the invasion comes, they will take to the skies, and claim their vengeance.
Fantasy takes to the skies in this high-flying, dynamic adventure, which takes place 500 years after a disaster nearly wiped out the human race and left the survivors to build a new civilization on a series of islands floating above an endless, raging sea. Twins Bree and Kael Skyborn were orphaned when their parents were killed in defense of their home. Ever since then, they have wanted nothing more than to join the Seraphim, winged warriors who wield elemental forces in battle. When they turn 16, they're accepted to the Academy and begin intensive training. Bree, a natural in the air, struggles with her control over fire, while Kael works to keep up with his ambitious sister. Their subsequent experiences are set against an increasingly tense backdrop as war threatens to erupt between the islands. Dalglish (the Shadowdance series) creates a rich setting and populates it with amazing visuals; the aerial combat sequences are breathtaking and cinematic. The cast contains the usual school-themed archetypes, but Dalglish manages to shake up their story with some devastating twists. This trilogy tale soars confidently and will appeal to teen and adult audiences alike.
I read this book in three days. Not because I’m a fast reader, and not because I have that much free time (I have a toddler, I have no time!). I would intend to read for 30 minutes before bed and then realize two hours had passed. That’s what kind of story this is.
Wow! I have read the shadow dance series and the half orc series and this book may be better than any of them. Absolutely gripping
One of the best trilogies I've ever read
Just.... spectacular. There is no other word to describe the trilogy as a whole
