In the world of the Dominions, everyone has a power. Spirit-stones, implanted at birth by the mysterious Deliverers, grant strange abilities. Some can shape metal. Some can see into the past. Some can make people see you as you are not. The stones determine who you are and what your place is in the world.

Ryushi and Kia, twin brother and sister, have grown up in the mountains on their father's isolated wyvern stud. Ryushi's stones let him command pure force; one day he will be able to turn a key in a lock as easily as he smashes a wall. Kia manipulates the earth, raising golems from the ground, opening doors where there are no doors. Every day they train in the fighting arts, and learn how to harness the powers they were gifted at birth.

Soon they will find out why.

The arrival of a strange, waifish girl at the stud sets into motion a chain of events that will pull the twins into a world they had never imagined. A world where strange machines, powered by the stones of Pilots, battle alongside airborne wyverns; where stalking horrors step out of mirrors, hunting traitors wherever they hide; where rebels plot against the king in a hidden city.
And there is more. A shadow-world, a heartbeat away from their own. A mirror-land ruled by a despot. Kia and Ryushi will find themselves drawn into a battle for two worlds, and in doing so, they will discover the truth about who they are, what they want to be... and the very nature of the spirit-stones themselves.

Broken Sky was an international hit upon its release in 1999, selling over 250,000 copies in the US alone, and was translated into over 15 languages. Now available on ebook for the first time, this epic fantasy for all ages is set to capture a new generation of readers.
