An apprentice sorceress is dragged into a vicious quest across an endless sky in this Star Wars-inspired space fantasy.

The Axiom Diamond is a mythical relic, with the power to show its bearer any truth they desire. Men have sought for it across many continents for centuries but in vain. When trainee sorceress Aimee de Laurent's first ever portal-casting goes awry, she and her mentor are thrown into the race to find the gem, on the skyship Elysium. Opposing them are the infamous magic-wielding knights of the Eternal Order and their ruthless commander, Lord Azrael, who will destroy everything in their path....

Praise for this book

"This book has one of the best covers I've seen all year, and it's incredibly accurate in its depiction of the characters and mood of the story. Do judge the book by its cover!" - Beth Cato

"A richly imagined story full of soaring adventure, dark intrigue, and characters you'll fall in love with." - Megan E O'Keefe

"One of those remarkable books that consists entirely of 'the good parts.' Nonstop fun with unexpected moments of real pathos." - Neal Stephenson

"To say that Skyfarer was Firefly meets the Battle at Helm's Deep would be to dismiss the amazing world-building that Brassey wraps us up in, or to gloss over the intricate and intense battles we are thrust into, both on high and up close. Brassey raises the bar for everyone else. More, please." - Mark Teppo
