Painted cover by Steve Rude. This trade paperback is the perfect introduction for readers who have yet to try this fantastic series. It tells the story of 16-year old Sephie, who lives on a world where cities float in the sky and ships travel through the air. Her city, Meridian, is a city with an economy based on shipbuilding and made up of the finest craftsmen. All is well on Meridian until Sephie's Uncle Ilahn comes to visit his brother Turos, Meridian's Minister. Ilahn is the Minister of the sky city of Cadador. All his life he has dreamed of taking control of Meridian away from his brother and ruling the greatest empire on the planet. When both Turos and Ilahn are engulfed in a strange light, both are granted the sigil, the strange mark of power. Unfortunately, that power is too much for Turos to bear and his mark is transferred to his daughter, Sephie. What does the sigil mean? How did they both come to get it? What type of power does it bring? And with Turos out of the way, how can Sephie stop her Uncle from fulfilling his dreams of conquest? Follow Sephie's plight as she is whisked away from her homeland and realizes it is now her responsibility to find her way home to save her people from the oncoming invasion by Cadador. Also included is a complete cover gallery and humorous anecdotes from Barbara Kesel and other creators who have worked on this title. Colored by Mike Atiyeh, Morry Hollowell, and Paul Mounts.
