GEORGE R.R. MARTIN, LISA TUTTLE Windhaven

A classic novel from two awardwinning authors. Maris of Amberly, a fisherman’s daughter, wants nothing more than to soar on the currents high above Windhaven. So she challenges tradition, demanding that flyers be chosen by merit rather than inheritance. But even after winning that bitter battle, Maris finds that her troubles are only beginning. Now a revolution threatens to destroy the world she fought so hard to join – and forces her to make the ultimate sacrifice. George R.R. Martin is the awardwinning author of A Game of Thrones, part of the Song of Ice and Fire series and now a hit TV series. Lisa Tuttle is a science fiction, fantasy and horror writer. She was a co-winner of the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer in Science Fiction.
