Author Chad Corrie returns to prose with a dystopian fantasy for teens, As the Sparrow Flies: Sojourners’ Saga. Known for his adult fantasy trilogy, The Wizard King, As the Sparrow Flies: Sojourners’ Saga marks the first time that the author has written for a young adult audience. The book takes place in a brand-new setting, and includes cover art by Dan Burgess and appendices to enrich the reading experience.

Annulis is a dying world. Nothing can stop the doom all say is coming. Some simply accept it, embracing the end. Others hold to a better future—a way of escape from the dark days ahead.

Sarah and her people sojourn the land, searching for a city none have seen but believe exists as an escape from these troubling times. Elliott follows an army with a mandate calling for the purging of all that would hinder a glorious global rebirth.

Both are nearing an ancient city set on its own destruction. Both will be tried behind its walls in ways unimaginable. And both will have to live with the consequences.

As the Sparrow Flies: Sojourners’ Saga is perfect for fans of the Grishaverse series, The Bone Witch trilogy, and the Throne of Glass series.

As the Sparrow Flies: Sojourners’ Saga Book One TPB (288 pages) flies into bookstores May 14, 2024. It is now available to pre-order for $19.99 at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and your local comic shop and indie bookstore.
