Skyland is drying up. Nine ships are set to leave for a new colony. But flying into the Sky is an affront to the heavens and the Sky Reverends will not allow it.
Destroying the ships – the abominations that fly into the holy Sky – is a great honor, one Harper should gladly give his life for. The Sky Reverends instill in their followers one lesson: the Sky is sacred and flying is an affront to the Heavens. Raised by a Reverend, Harper Fields learned to obey and agree.
But he doesn’t agree. Not really. And in one daring moment he chooses not to obey–instead boarding the ship he was meant to destroy.
