By Sheila Rance
The second sweeping magical reality adventure inspired by the Bronze Age Far East - this is GAME OF THRONES for a younger audience.
Silk whispers. Clouds gather. A storm is coming.
Many years ago, a storm brought Maia to the cliffs. Now she is Sun Catcher in the land of Khandar, but when her father, Tareth, needs silk, Maia must go back to the clifftops she once fled. Danger awaits her every step of the way: assassins, thought-stealers, the Marsh Lord - all greedy for her power. And Razek, who deserted his people to follow her, must pay a high price as he tries to bend wind and rain to his will - and chase away the storms.
Film rights to the trilogy have now been optioned.
