Praise

“Sheehan crafts a richly detailed world and uses multiple points of view to relate the narrative, keeping the characters central to the high-stakes plot. Following in the tradition of Kenneth Oppel’s Airborn and Philip Reeve’s Fever Crumb, this fantasy, full of lessons about close friendships and the power of fighting for what’s right, will hook readers seeking adventure.” –Booklist

“An arch, omniscient narrative—by turns brutal and sweet—unspools into an ambitious, wide-ranging story of survival and loyalty.” –Publishers Weekly

“Perfect for anyone who loves action and mystery and cliffhanger endings.” –SLC

“Richly imagined and emotionally resonant, Children of the Flying City is a fantasy for young and old alike. At times evoking the starkness of Cormac McCarthy and the dark, humanistic fantasy of Stephen King, Sheehan will make your imagination soar, tear your heart back to the ground, dust you off, then send you back to the sky with a grin on your face. This book gave my heart wings.”
–Pierce Brown, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Red Rising
 
Children of the Flying City feels, at once, timeless and wondrously, gloriously new. Jason Sheehan has crafted the bones of a great story, the prickling flesh of unforgettable characters, the gasp of gorgeous language, and he’s tucked a velvety, multi-chambered secret at the book’s center.”
–Katie Williams, author of Tell the Machine Goodnight
