Author Skylhur Tranqille has always been a prolific reader.  She holds the record for most books read at her middle school. Now she taps that experience in the first of a planned series of books which explore a mythical world where people are separated between those who can fly, and those who do not have wings.  The book is entitled “Landed Wings” and is written from the first person perspective of five main characters.

The series will capture the betrayal, revenge, love and heartache the series heroine, Ashylhnn, experiences while exploring the role science plays in the development of society. Skylhur is currently working on a Prequel to Landed Wings along with the second book in the series titled, “Broken Wings”.  Skylhur lives in Advance, NC with her brother and parents.
