A murderous plot aboard a city-sized flying ship must be averted before a crazed cult sends a million people to their deaths.
When portal-mage Harkon Bright and his apprentice are asked to help select a new captain for the immense skyship Elysium, they quickly find themselves embroiled in its Machiavellian officer’s court. Aboard the Iseult, the warlord Azrael, saved by his former enemies, struggles to adapt to his unexpected gift of life while suffering dark dreams of an ancient terror.
As the skies darken and storm-clouds gather on the Dragon Road, the crew of the Elysium come face to face with deadly intrigues, plots from beyond death, and a terrible darkness that lurks in the heart of a thousand-year storm.
Joseph Brassey has lived on both sides of the continental US, and worked as a craft-store employee, paper-boy, factory worker, hospital kitchen gopher, martial arts instructor, singer, and stay-at-home Dad (the last is his favorite job, by far). Joseph trains in - and teaches - Liechtenauer’s Kunst des Fechtens in his native Tacoma. Known for his work with Neal Stephenson, Gregg Bear, Mark Teppo and Nicole Galland on The Mongoliad series, Skyfarer is his first solo novel.
