Cover Reveal: Once We Flew, by Nikky Lee

14 Oct 2023

Welcome to a new cover reveal! Today we have the pleasure of help reveal the cover of Once We Flew, a new novella written by the author of the Rarkyn's Familiar, the Aurealis Award Winner author Nikky Lee.

Let's take a look at the blurb:

Four generations ago a generation ship crashed into the sands of Savene. Since then, its survivors have eked out an existence in the planet’s hostile desert. Yet, the tech is failing, the sands are encroaching, and people are dying. Rescue is still generations away—if it comes at all.

But Marsa is a survivor.

And an outcast.

Infected with the Chrysalis—a disease that grants its carriers uncanny abilities—she keeps her distance from her dwindling community.

Until an old friend’s dying wish sends her and a young boy across Savene’s inhospitable sands in search of something Marsa had thought she’d long forgotten.
