The Wingless Boy Summary

The Wingless Boy: The Fledging of Az Gabrielson and Pirates of the Relentless Desert by Jay Amory

Gathered together in this superb value omnibus are the first two books in The Clouded World series. Written by debut novelist Jay Amory, these are fast-paced, thrilling fantasy adventures. Imagine a city high in the sky comprised of pristine white spires, bathed in glorious golden sunlight - a city above the cloud layer, looking down on the ever-changing cloud formations below. From up here, the worst thunderstorms are little but flashes of light amongst the cloud cover, their force directed away from the cities and the tiny two- and four-seater aircraft its inhabitants use for travel. The world below the clouds may be disturbed, but in the tranquil world above, populated by winged people, life is good. Life isn't so good for Azreal Gabrielson. He's one of the Airborn too. With a stretch and a beat of their eight-foot wings his people can flit effortlessly around their cities, living a life of airy ease and beauty ...and in this world Az is an oddity, a painfully isolated exception: Az Gabrielson is a wingless boy. And he's about to be sent on a mission.

The Wingless Boy Reviews

"Amory's ethereal descriptions of the 'world above the clouds' in the opening chapters are wonderful, and he manages to paint the sky cities in an entirely believable light. Amory's real skill is in crafting inventive action sequences, and from the high-powered explosion of the Deacon's Chancel in book one to the epic airship battle in the skies at the end of the second, these scenes are a real pleasure to read." -- Alice Wybrew DREAMWATCH
