Firefly meets Final Fantasy as a daring crew faces off against a cruel order of sorcerous knights.

The Axiom Diamond is a mythical relic, with the power to show its bearer any truth they desire. Men have sought for it across many continents for centuries, but in vain. When trainee sorceress Aimee de Laurent's first ever portal-casting goes awry, she and her mentor are thrown into the race to find the gem, on the skyship Elysium. Opposing them are the infamous magic-wielding knights of the Eternal Order and their ruthless commander, Lord Azrael, who will destroy everything in their path...

Reviews for Skyfarer (#1 Drifting Lands)

One of those remarkable books that consists entirely of 'the good parts.' Nonstop fun with unexpected moments of real pathos. - Neal Stephenson PRAISE FOR THE MONGOLIAD This story is pure adventure, with much swordplay and swashbuckling. - Kirkus Reviews A terrifically engaging book that pulled me along at least as quickly as The Hunger Games. Think Lord of the Rings without all that pesky fantasy... five frighteningly accurate historical sword fights out of five. - Fanboy Comics
