Moon has spent his life hiding what he is--a shape-shifter able to transform himself into a winged creature of flight.

Just as Moon is once again discovered and cast out by his adopted tribe, he discovers a shape-shifter like himself...

Jade, sister queen of the Indigo Cloud Court, has traveled with Chime and Balm to another Raksuran court. When she fails to return, her consort Moon, along with Stone and a party of warriors and hunters, must track them down. Finding them turns out to be the easy part; freeing them from an ancient trap hidden in the depths of the Reaches is much more difficult.

| "The Tale of Indigo and Cloud"

The Edge of Worlds Night Shade Books, April 2016

An expedition of groundlings from the Empire of Kish have traveled through the Three Worlds to the Indigo Cloud court. The groundlings have found a sealed ancient city at the edge of the shallow seas, near the deeps of the impassable Ocean. They believe it to be the last home of their ancestors and ask for help getting inside. But the Raksura fear it was built by their own distant ancestors, the Forerunners, and the last sealed Forerunner city they encountered was a prison for an unstoppable evil.

| The Harbors of the Sun Night Shade Books, July 2017

Sequel to The Edge of Worlds, and the final book in the series. A former friend has betrayed the Raksura and their groundling companions, and now the survivors must race across the Three Worlds to rescue their kidnapped family members. When Moon and Stone are sent ahead to scout, they quickly encounter an unexpected and potentially deadly ally, and decide to disobey the queens and continue the search alone. Following in a wind-ship, Jade and Malachite make an unlikely alliance of their own, until word reaches them that the Fell are massing for an attack on the Reaches, and that forces of the powerful Empire of Kish are turning against the Raksura and their groundling comrades.
