An expedition gone awry.
Suni Koudounas is enamoured with the wonders — and dangers — of the Far Wild. As a naturalist's apprentice, she's studied every book and expedition report about the miraculous wilderness. But when her mentor goes missing on expedition, Suni sets aside the Far Wild of ink and paper to venture after him into the primordial jungle.
A missing skyship.
As the empire's most beloved adventurer — or most successful raconteur — Senesio Suleiman Nicolaou doesn't want much. Wealth beyond measure, fame beyond reason and a small kingdom somewhere warm should be about enough. When news of the rescue mission reaches him, Senesio knows there's no better opportunity to add to his living legend.
The most dangerous wilderness known to man.
With unexpected enemies above and monstrous predators in the jungles below, it's up to Suni, Senesio and their companions to uncover the truth of what's happening in the Far Wild. It's a revelation that will shake the empire to its core and reshape the lives of all involved — assuming, of course, they don't all get eaten first.
This thrilling start to Alex Knight's new fantasy series is perfect for fans of Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park and Nicholas Eames's Kings of the Wyld.
