What is included with this book?
Aleks Vasin doesn't want any part of the boring village life mapped out for him--he wants excitement and the chance to travel. So Aleks heads South to the great city of Rensav and enlists in the army, but after a brutal few days, he realizes that he's signed himself away to a life far worse than the one he just left.
Aleks escapes, hoping to find safety somewhere in the North. On the way, he finds love, adventure, and a skyship full of technological discoveries beyond his wildest dreams. He might just prove himself a hero too-but only if he can evade the vengeful soldiers on his trail who want him back. The Almost King returns to the epic, sweeping world of Tellus with a brand-new hero.
Lucy Saxon is twenty and lives in Hertfordshire, UK, with her parents. She describes herself as a cosplayer, con-goer, booklover, and all-round nerd. She wrote her first novel, Take Back the Skies, at the age of sixteen, finding a home for it with Bloomsbury at seventeen, and is now working on the rest of the series. When not writing, Lucy spends most of her time on the Internet, reading books and slaving over her sewing machine.
