The Prequel to Swordbird - another epic fantasy from fourteen-year-old child prodigy Nancy Yi Fan, with beautiful illustrations by Mark Zug. Sworquest will be published globally by HarperCollins. An exciting and action-packed tale of birds at war, this novel shows how friendship and courage can overcome tyranny.
Sworquest follows the life of Wind-Voice, the heroic dove of peace, and how he wins his magical sword. Wind-Voice and his companions, a woodpecker and a mynah bird, join the rebel bird forces to fight against their oppressors, the archaeopteryxes.
Once again Nancy creates a richly imagined bird world full of fanciful characters, adventure and intrigue.
Nancy Yi Fan was born in 1993 in Beijing, China. She moved to New York with her parents when she was seven years old and graduated with excellence from US elementary school in 2004. She now lives on the beautiful Hainan Island, China's most southerly province, with her parents and her three pet birds. When she's not writing, Nancy loves bird-watching, kung fu sword-playing, and reading. Her favourite place in the world is the library.
