Rocco's Wings

Rocco, de doce años de edad, es el único habitante con alas. Una tragedia ocurre.  Rocco es capturado por urvogels (criaturas aladas de apariencia humana que habitan en los acantilados del Alto Terrakesh). Él presencia como los urvogels sufren el castigo de recibir el corte de sus alas. 


Solar Dust

From her hideout in the tree canopy, Harpia plots her revenge. She calls upon legions of birds to fly north, stirring the wind and sea.  Fierce storms break out. The magnetic poles are in danger of shifting. Many fear the end of Terrakesh. Vesta hears the song of the birds and animals whose lives are at risk. Together with Rocco and Iggy she travels north in search of their twin-spirits. Only the twin-spirits know the secret to stopping Harpia.



Magma (urvogel) is plagued by doubts.  He has a red stain on his throat that flares up when he gets excited or upset. Magma plays with bones from small birds and animals. Like most urvogel males, Magma wears his hair in a topknot.  He is skilled at akiva-du, an art form used to combat the Air Marshals who pursue them.
