Rebel Skies

Ann Sei Lin

Imagine an empire in the sky with cities and groundlings battling for power. Imagine you had the ability to create life out of paper and are taken on board an airship to become a spirit hunter. This is Kurara’s world as she journeys on the Orihime following her capture and the loss of her friend Haru. Her quest is to reach Princess Tsukimi in order to regain some of what she has lost.

This is the first in a teen fantasy trilogy. It combines Japanese culture with daring adventure and magical encounters. There are dragons, fierce battles and a cast of characters that fantasy lovers will adore. Written by librarian and author Ann Sei Lin, this is her debut novel and we can’t wait for the next episode – Rebel Fire!
