Skyborn: Sparrow Rising

In the Clandoms, everyone is born with wings, with tight-knit communities formed around bird types: Jay, Falcon, Crow. Ellie Meadows dreams of growing up to join the Goldwings, the famed knights who defend all the people of the Clandoms. It was a Goldwing, after all, who saved her life on that terrible day her parents were killed. But Ellie is a Sparrow, and the Goldwings are almost invariably picked from the higher clans like Eagles and Ospreys; Ellie is destined to become a farmer.

Determined to prove herself worthy of the Goldwings, Ellie sets out on her own for the capital. But her journey will be dangerous. Foul creatures called gargols lurk behind every cloud, ready to slay anyone unlucky enough to be caught outside in a storm — just as Ellie's family was. Soon her path intertwines with a colorful band of fellow outcasts, each with their own aspirations... and their own secrets.

Ellie's new friends offer not just roadside companionship: they'll challenge her ideas of right, wrong, and what truly makes a hero. Jessica Khoury brings her masterful world-building and emotional depth to this fantasy series opener about a world where monsters hunt those who fly too high.

Description

"[Ellie's] plans take a turn when she meets Nox, a Crow; Twig, a boy with Mockingbird and Crane parents (and therefore a stigmatized piebald); and Gussie, a Falcon. The three steal a mysterious stone and soon find themselves on a thrilling adventure through lands where no one is what they seem. Each has faced some sort of discrimination within their divided kingdom, and their stories should resonate with a wide spectrum of readers. Khoury’s worldbuilding is gripping and complex, tethering her adroitly rendered tale to today’s most important issues, including racism, classism, privilege, and systemic oppression." — Kirkus Reviews
