| Featured Story | This fast-paced novella follows the adventure of a fledgling sky pirate as she becomes entangled in a revolution.

For a year, the scrappy picklock Clikk has flown aboard The Wastrel disguised as a man. When her captain kidnaps a girl named Molly, Clikk is furious to learn that he plans to sell her as a bride to a despotic emperor. 

Molly has a secret that could be the catalyst of a revolutionary war, but the captain can't wait to be rid of her. Girls are bad luck on airships, and this one suffers a curse that makes her unable to stop crying. Clikk schemes to help Molly escape, but to do so, she must inspire a mutiny, stop an imperial wedding at sky and sneak the girl onto a hijacked ship, all while enduring the child's intolerable crying curse.

I still prefer 'skyhauled.' Windhauled sounds like something else. ;) But this rule sounds strangely fun.

love the new covers Meg, so delightfully-eerie, the designs truly artistic;
                              and the concept arts are captivating as well  :)
