The not too distant future; the isle of Crete, in the Aegean Sea, has been resurrected as a modern Mount Olympus, home to an omnipotent air force. The flyers that pilot the great birds of war have been raised since birth to believe they are the new gods of Olympus, taking their names from the Greek myths. Icarus is Olympus’ top flyer, a battle-hardened pilot dedicated to the Corps, lording his might over a nameless globe.

One day among the clouds, an encounter with one of the enemy throws Icarus into a disturbing web of confusion, inspiring a quest to decipher the origins of the ambiguous war. When Icarus discovers the truth behind his life of killing he is plunged into a conscience.

Totally Unique Reading Experience

Love this ebook! Part traditional novel, part graphic novel, part live-action cinematic experience, a unique art form and compelling read. The perfect mixture of sci-fi, and mythology, I found the whole read/watch/listen to be truly immersive and entertaining. The mixture of audio visual elements with the text elevates this to something more than a traditional novel or book on tape. Hard to describe as you need to experience yourself. Highly recommend!
