The Skyriders Series
What if a civilization existed above the clouds?
What if a princess became an outcast because of a special ability to sense danger?
What if there was a plant that when burned put people into a sort of suspended animation? For years.
Those are some of the driving questions behind the four books in the Skyriders Series. They’re a cross between Sword & Sorcery and High Fantasy. Besides the main books, I’m considering writing a standalone novel and novella dealing with some backstory key to the main series. I might even have a couple short stories up my sleeve. 🙂
What are skyriders, you may ask? Unfortunately, there’s not a definition in any dictionary, so here’s mine:
Skyrider n. Any person who has become initiated into the Order of the Skyriders, the most powerful group of warriors in the sky-realm of Azurin.
