Prickly, sarcastic, and gifted, Araene has a secret of her own . . . a dream a girl cannot attain.Trei and Araene quickly become conspirators as they pursue their individual paths. But neither suspects that their lives will be deeply entwined, and that the fate of the Floating Islands will lie in their hands. . . .Filled with rich language, and told in alternating voices, The Floating Islands is an all-encompassing young adult fantasy read.
Why I can't wait:
I have read another book that takes place on a group of islands and I really enjoyed it. I like the idea of special people being able to fly in between the islands. It makes me think about the others who can't fly. How is their life better or worse not knowing what is going on in the other islands? How do they get across to the other islands? Can they? I think that this book should be interesting and we all know that I love a good fantasy novel!!
