Coming in 2018 from Farrar, Straus and Giroux Books for Younger Readers, BLACK WINGS BEATING is the first book in the SKYBOUND series of YA fantasy set in a world of cut-throat falconry.
A fatherless brother and sister must go on a dangerous quest to trap the deadliest prize in their world, the famed Ghost Eagle, a mythic bird of prey that could change everything in the coming war. It could change everything for the two of them as well. It killed their father.
To protect the ones they love, each of the teens will have find power they’ve long feared, face demons they’ve long run from, and defeat powers much bigger themselves. If they fail, the sky might well fall around them.
