Set in a parallel universe, Flight is a stunning debut YA fantasy in which a rebellious and reckless heroine must face a colonial world coming unstitched on a planet both like and unlike our own.

Now in paperback!

An intricately lush and well-crafted new fantasy that deserves (and demands) a sequel.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“A mature choice for those who love high fantasy and magical realism.” — School Library Journal

A rebellious heroine faces a colonial world coming unstitched in Jae Waller’s stunning debut fantasy

“Waller’s world-building is impressive . . . While the magical and romantic elements of Waller’s story are most likely to hook teen readers, it’s the commentary on colonized cultures that really sets this novel apart from other YA fantasy tales.” — Quill & Quire

Seventeen-year-old Kateiko doesn’t want to be Rin anymore — not if it means sacrificing lives to protect the dead. Her only way out is to join another tribe, a one-way trek through the coastal rainforest. Killing a colonial soldier in the woods isn’t part of the plan. Neither is spending the winter with Tiernan, an immigrant who keeps a sword with his carpentry tools. His log cabin leaks and his stories about other worlds raise more questions than they answer.

Then the air spirit Suriel, long thought dormant, resurrects a war. For Kateiko, protecting other tribes in her confederacy is atonement. For Tiernan, war is a return to the military life he’s desperate to forget.

Leaving Tiernan means losing the one man Kateiko trusts. Staying with him means abandoning colonists to a death sentence. In a region tainted by prejudice and on the brink of civil war, she has to decide what’s worth dying — or killing — for.

Short Description

Set in a parallel universe, Flight is a stunning debut YA fantasy in which a rebellious and reckless heroine must face a colonial world coming unstitched on a planet both like and unlike our own.

Sales and Market Bullets


  • The Call of the Rift: Flight is the first book in the young adult sword-and-sorcery fantasy series that replaces castles with cabins, and the well-worn paths of medieval Europe with the lush rainforest and mountains of North America’s colonial-era Pacific Northwest.

  • Original, well-wrought fantasy is a rare and wonderful thing. Waller creates a completely believable world peopled with great characters and tons of compelling action. The plotting and writing are assured.

Audience


  • 14+ high fantasy and historical fantasy readers (cross-over into adult fantasy readers).

  • Librarians and teachers.

  • Readers of The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline and The Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyward.
