Take Back The Skies book preview

CaptureLucy Saxon. The name may well sound familiar to MCM Comic Con goers, and the face even moreso. Lucy has frequented the cosplay scene over the past few years, creating numerous costumes over a wide range of fandoms – from Marvel’s Captain America to Harry Potter and Game of Thrones. Lucy’s enthusiasm for all things nerdy has fueled her passion for writing and she recently signed her first publishing deal with Bloomsbury to bring her epic adventure series Take Back The Skies to print.

The perfect book for young adults who enjoy fantasy and beyond in the vein of The Mortal Instruments and similar, Take Back The Skies is set around the islands of Tellus and follows the daring and bold escapades of lead character Cat. Formerly known as Catherine, Cat grows tired of the life of a government official’s daughter and wants to explore the possibilities out there in the world. What follows is a tale of danger and turmoil that is gripping, emotional and displays a high calibre of writing from first-timer Saxon.

Not only is this a book that captures the imagination of the reader but has a fantastic tale behind the author too, especially relevant to all of us here at MCM!

Bloomsbury are offering a preview of the first chapter online at the following link:
