Nadya Skylung paid a high price when she defeated the pirates on the cloudship Remora: She lost her leg. But has she lost her nerve too? When Nadya and the rest of the crew of the cloudship Orion reach the port of Far Agondy, they have a lot to do, including a visit to Machinist Gossner's workshop to have a prosthetic made for Nadya. But though the pirates are far away across the Cloud Sea, Nadya and her friends are still not safe. A gang leader called Silvermask is kidnapping skylung and cloudling children in Far Agondy. When Nadya's friend Aaron is abducted, Nayda will stop at nothing to save him and the other missing kids, and put a stop to Silvermask once and for all.
"An entertaining and engaging fantasy adventure that deals sensitively with the topic of disability. Will appeal to late elementary and early middle school fans of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series and similar middle grade speculative fiction." --School Library Journal
It takes a very special crew to keep the cloudship Orion running, and no one knows that better than Nadya Skylung, who tends the cloud garden that keeps the ship afloat. When the unthinkable happens and pirates attack, Nadya and the other children aboard--all orphans taken in by the kindhearted Captain Nic--narrowly escape, but the rest of the crew is captured. Alone and far from help, only Nadya and her four brave and loyal friends can take back the Orion and rescue the crew. And she'll risk life and limb to save the only family she's ever known. But . . . this attack was no accident. What exactly are the pirates looking for? Could it be Nadya they've been after all along?

Merchants’ son Litnig Jin yearns to be a hero, weaving the souls of the dead into high magic. His brother Cole wants nothing more than to be free of their violent father. After the dragon-god of destruction sinks its claws into their nightmares, both brothers get their wish.
A dream of moving statues, shattered chains, and dark, seething clouds leads the brothers to flee the three hills and comfortable neighborhoods of their city on a quest to save the world from a god's timeless wrath. They head west into the unknown, where soulweavers reign supreme and danger lurks in every shadow.
As the brothers seek to stop the end of the world, they discover they have more power than they ever thought possible. But learning to use it may cost them each other, their best friends, and everything they are.

A young man born a monster wrestles with his heritage. New lovers cling to happiness as the world crumbles. A prince discovers that, in the end, his weakness may outweigh his determination. Two soulweavers find in homecomings not solace but soul-crushing ordeal.
Those who stood before the black wall when Sherduan was summoned were chosen. But by whom? And for what?
And will their courage create enough light to push back the darkness?
