The Skyriders Series

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.

    • Sweet. I haven’t done much with them lately, but I’m planning on changing that in the near future. I’ll keep you updated. 🙂

  2. Oh! Sounds cool! Love the name Azurin. I actually have an elf named Azuryn in the third trilogy set in Nälu. It’s in rough draft, so that might change!
