Cygnus is an ordinary young man thrust into a series of unlikely and incredible adventures brought about when he becomes a rare survivor of an oceanic air disaster.
He washes ashore on the beach of an island occupied by disdained feral humans ruled by civilized, sentient horses.
In a quest to survive, he encounters fantastic creatures and learns of their ways. His odyssey takes him to places inhabited by giants and tiny diminutive humans, decrepifying immortals, anti-intellectuals, and magic-wielding necromancers.
On Swift Wings is a deep, brilliantly written fantasy/adventure novel that encourages readers to examine their world through the satirical lens of several stunningly painted unique and isolated islands filled sly humour.
If you love classic satire and fantasy, read Brett Wiens’ modern masterpiece, On Swift Wings.
