Overview

Maree Webster—an "almost-emo" from the western suburbs of Sydney—hates school, has few friends, and is obsessed with angels and fallen angel stories. Life is boring until she decides to steal a famous painting from a small art gallery that has been haunting her dreams: swirling reds, greys and oranges of barely discernible winged figures. There, she meets a stranger who claims to know her and stumbles into a world where cities float in the sky, and daemons roam the barren, magma-spewing crags of the land far below. And all is not well—Maree is turning into something she loves but at the same time, fears. Most fearful of all is the prospect of losing her identity—what makes her Maree, and more importantly, what makes her human. Guardian of the Sky Realms takes the reader on a journey through exotic fantasy lands, as well as across the globe, from Sydney to Paris, from the Himalayas to Manhattan. At its heart, it is a novel about transformation.

Reviews

"Reveals both the splendor and darkness of the Sky Realms ... magic that's mysteriously changing, perhaps irrevocably, leaving plenty of intrigue and adventure to keep younger readers coming back for more." —Lee Murray, award-winning author of the Taine McKenna adventure series

"A highly imaginative novel." —Jim Cherry, author of The Doors Examined

"A great novel about a teenage girl discovering her past." —Phannie the Ginger Bookworm

"The world Mr. Huntman created here in this middle grade novel is vivid and lively. Characters are emotive and realistic. I empathized with them all, especially Alanar, who wanted so desperately to have Mirriam back, but was so incredibly patient with her amnesia and her inability to forget her life as Maree." —Mysti Parker, author of the Sever the Crown series
