E.G. Stone, author of “The One Who Could Not Fly” – Ravenna has grown up isolated and ostracized amongst the sylphs for her small wing size and her unusual coloring. She lives with the Intellecti, a collection of sylphs dedicated to learning, to facts, to history, to thought. But she feels most free when she runs through the trees of her beloved home. Until that is, she comes across beings that should have been a myth. Humans. Captured, Ravenna is taken from her home and into the vastness of the desert mainland. She is sold into slavery and thrown into a world that proves everything she knew about humans right: they are nothing more than the cruel, bloodthirsty beings that filled sylph myths with horror. Until that is, Ravenna makes a single mistake. She falls. Suddenly, the world is not quite what she knew. Ravenna is thrust into this world of humans and their schemings for power, their political machinations, their hopes, their dreams. Ravenna must decide whether humans are the nightmares of her people’s legends or just beings like her, finding their place in an unexpected world. And she must decide whether to save her world or to destroy it. The One Who Could Not Fly is an exciting fantasy adventure that asks questions about family, independence, and what it really means to fly.
