What the story's about . . .
In this continuation of Taking the Skies (CrossGeneration, 2002), Sephie, a girl gifted with extraordinary powers, fights Rho Rhustane, a godlike being who has just introduced a cannon to Demetria.
Meanwhile, the course of true love runs roughly as her friend Feabie continues her campaign to win the heart of Sephie's childhood friend Jad.
Her wicked uncle and his manipulative mistress team up to cause trouble for Sephie, her crew, and the people of Meridian, and she deals with rage and the urge to kill.
Eventually, she must face the fear that her powers provoke in other people. Sephie's responsibilities continue to grow, and she is moving away from being part of Meridian to claiming a position in Demetria.
The vivid art is one of the strong points of the book. Sephie continues to be a strong, appealing heroine in this engaging, affecting drama.
Acorna the Unicorn Girl comes to mind when I think of this series, but the art and story-telling is SO MUCH BETTER!!!!
Your eyes and mind are glued to every page! A must-read for sci fi and Star Wars fans everywhere.
