Stories from the world of the Veilmakers

The Maynard Trigg series takes place in the world of Veilmakers, sky pirates and Dust.

Dust is a great barrier that separates the earth and sky, forcing people to live out their lives atop ramshackle skyports. These skyports vary from shanty towns to great cities. The white law rules the skies, bringing justice and control to the innerports, while, the further east you fly, the more savage and dangerous the skyports become.

Rumours of revolution, pirate alliances and monsters are rising in the east, finally arriving at the innerports. And some believe a dead King may return to claim the white law for himself, while others defend and love President Ortzworth.

One thing is certain: a storm is on the way, and Maynard Trigg might just be caught in the middle.
