We’re revealing the cover of Ascent: Unreachable Skies, Vol. 3 by Karen McCreedy!

The Unreachable Skies trilogy has been an amazing adventure so far. In book one, we were introduced to Zarda, Fate-seer of her people, the Drax, and mentor to the hatchling Dru, who is fated to one day defeat the vicious Koth whom the Drax fear. In book two, Exile, Zarda chooses to join the exiled Drax in their flight across the unknown landscape in search of safety from the wrath of Kalis; their former leader. Now, in Ascent, we have the stunning conclusion of Zarda and Dru’s story. Will Dru defeat the Koth? Will Zarda and the others be able to return home to the Spirax? Find out when this book launches September 17th, 2020.

For now, you can preorder this book in our store, or wherever books are sold. Here is the cover:

US3cover copy

Zarda, the Fate-seer, and the Drax she accompanied into exile, have settled into a new life far to the north of their homeland, the Expanse. They have pledged their loyalty to Kalon, whose rightful place as Prime was stolen by his brother, Kalis. 


Zarda’s one certainty is that Kalis’ wingless heir, Dru, is destined to defeat their old enemy, the Koth; but how is he to do that when he is no longer the Prime’s heir? And how can Kalis, his scheming adviser Fazak, and their followers be overcome? 


To find the answers and to help the rightful Prime take his place in the Spirax, Zarda must first find a way back through the Crimson Forest for the exiles – but danger and betrayal await them all.
