VENQUARIS: The Promontory (Wattys 2017)
A girl who puts everyone before herself and a boy who doesn't give a damn about everybody else teams up to save themselves.
A thousand miles above the beaches of La Union, Eco's mission is failing. Left with no other choice, she leaves her friends behind to save herself and heads back to land.
Nathaniel has been running away all his life - from landlords, yes, but also from the venquaris who killed his father. He meets and saves Eco, and was about to escape again, when they both realized they have to go back to the Promontory - the original house of venquaris like them, biologically-altered weapons of war that can manipulate the elements. They go back-- each with their own purpose. Eco to save her friends and redeem herself, and Nathaniel to answer his questions and to stop himself from running away again.
