"'The World Above the Sky' transports seventeen-year-old Eugainia St. Clair Delacroix - the Living Holy Grail - from certain death at the hands of her enemies to the safety of the New World. The year is 1398, Fleet commander Prince Henry Sinclair, Eugainia's protector and champion, clings tothe dying Templar dream of establishing a New Arcadia with Eugainia enthro ned at its beating heart. The Royal and Holy Blood flows in Eugainia's veins: Her lineage stretches back beyond the Christ and Mary Magdalane, past the Kings David and Solomon, past the man-god Pharoahs of Egypt to the dawn of time itself.

There stands the handsome, young and recently widowed Mimkitawo'qu'sk, chief-in-waiting of a peaceful clan of east coast MI'kmaqs. InMimkitawo'qu'sk's veins runs the Ancient and Honourable blood of The Peopl e, blood as potent with magic as the living bones of thge earth, blood richin the mysteries of the star world - the world above the sky. In the time of the Two made One, Mimkitawo'qu'sk and revitalized Eugainia break their chains, redefine divinity and, together, forge a new and shining world." - from the front flap. Very good. 14.00
