The Sungrown: Wings
The distant future. A sun-blasted Earth, where the remnants of humanity live in uneasy peace with the dominant human/animal hybrids. Life is cheap, and death costs nothing. For Cloth, a warrior under the rule of the winged humanoids called Raptors, life has been a daily struggle to survive. Now she has discovered a mysterious weapon, threatening her people. Tasked by her ruler to find the source of the weapon and eliminate it, Cloth travels to the wastelands. Her companions are doubtful, her road endless, but Cloth has eyes only for the mission.
Struggling against land and living alike, Cloth will be tested to her breaking point, and even her inhuman strength may fail against this ancient threat.
