The universe of Orberana is a place of great wonder and peril, a dizzying landscape filled with clouds that can talk, clockwork beings that mark their own time, and painted animals that awake in the night.

Shiewo Morose is the captain of a flying ship powered by music. She is also a determined young woman on a mission: a quest to find the Wishing Fish that created Orberana.

Sailing above the clouds, Shiewo and her crew (Erduu the bamboo, Theo the cloud, Livingston the goldfish, and Felix the painter) are headed for worlds of crazed clockwork bureaucrats, tyrannic kings, and tornado children--worlds that will test not only the crew's bravery... but their very understanding of adventure.

Theirs is the odyssey of a lifetime...

The first book of Shiewo's Odyssey, "Fantasy Flight" is a young-adult novel for readers aged 13 and up.

Listen to the official soundtrack to this book, "Flight Song 1", at, or visit "Shiewo: The Interactive Explorer" at to discover illustrated content, crew profiles, and a virtual cutaway of the ship!

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): cone-roof
LOVED this fantasy with a vibe mix of Wizard-of-Oz and Alice-in-Wonderland!

Such whimsy!

Colorful and magical beings inhabit this world. There is an emphasis on music and sounds which brings an interesting and cool dimension to this read.

I enjoyed this adventure and look forward to more with Captain Morose and crew!
