Jay Amory30 de diciembre de 2010. Someone has to go down to the Ground to find out what has happened and Az, with his wingless similarity to the prehistoric Groundlings, looks to be perfect for the task of hunting for answers beneath the clouds. But on the Ground, in the vast shadows of the cities, Az finds more questions than answers: a benighted people who worship a dim notion of the Airborn and aspire to be like them.

Even the Wingless-and the books that follow it-are often dark and often desperate, but they are not, in the end .

Even the Wingless-and the books that follow it-are often dark and often desperate, but they are not, in the end, despairing. The Alliance that sent Lisinithir to the Chatcaava failed in their prior few ambassadors because they were, frankly, diplomats who were too diplomatic; they had no conception how to deal with a species that negotiated terms through violence (sexual and otherwise).

I absolutely love this series written by James Lovegrove under a pseudonym. It draws a very vivid and fantastical picture about what would happen if people would evolve and grow wings and live above the clouds. The main protagonist Az Gabrielson is smart and funny and you can't wait to turn the pages to see what happens to this boy born without wings. I first read the series several years ago and I remembered how much I liked it so I tried to order it online. The story holds up well and can be read by teenagers and adults alike. The story is very interesting because it hits many darker subjects like religion, abuse of power and racism. Bottom line is if you love thought provoking fast paced and action packed fantasy with a sense of humor this is the book for you! This omnibus comes with the first two books and I recommend also getting the 2nd omnibus called the clouded world which has books 3 and 4 so you can have the entire series.

I do get frustrated with books that are not clear as to their target audience. This one sat on the SF/Fantasy shelf but was not clear that it was aimed mainly at 'young adults' which (as I knock on the door of the big 5-0) is clearly not me.

Having said that, this was easy reading and while a little simplistic for an old git like myself, would probably appeal to the younger audience. Very short and engaging chapters, quite fast paced and with an interesting range of characters.

The story is around a society of winged humans that live in sky cities connected to the ground by a central coumn. They are oblivious to the 'groundlings', non flying beings, who provide most of their food and supplies. In turn the Groundlings think of the winged race as Gods and aspire to join them after death. Into this mix we have Az who is a rarity because he was born in a sky city but has no wings and as such is seen as almost disabled. This does however, make him ideal to investigate what life is like 'down below'.....

So we have a fast moving adventure as the two cultures discover each-other and how this will change the status quo. Bang in some very gentle insight on disability and religion/faith and this is a not taxing but entertaining read.

This book is a collection of the first two books in the series, The Fledging of Az Gabrielson and Pirates of the Relentless Desert

I should add that having bought this almost by mistake, the characters were sufficiently engaging that I am considering buying the follow up.
