She thought she had me. She was wrong.

I almost brought down Sky City, but now I’m in the hands of the enemy. Again. This time, it’s different. There’s a little respect. Is that something I can build from? Is it something I can trust?

With Nix, the answer of trust is always no. Everything she says is a manipulation of one sort or another. But she offers me a treaty and tells me to get the tribes to sign it. Sign it and there will be peace. She will stop killing tribes, will cease the genocide.

The trick is going to be getting the tribes together to sign it. I have an idea, but my mother isn’t going to like it.

Not even in the slightest. It’s time for both powers—the great tribal Families and the Hands of Tarot to step down.

They won’t go gently. But I’m ready.

Notes From Frankie

Sky Games was a really tough book for me to write because I was just discovering pacing. This was the book where I learned why I'd failed an entire cast of characters in the series before. I'd always just let my characters do what they wanted, instead of guiding them down a path. This is where I started researching book structure.

Unfortunately, you can feel that. LOL! Well, I can.


I really wanted to discover what it would be like to live onboard a lethara. I don't exactly remember how I even came up with the idea of a city living in the tentacles of a jellyfish, but it's one that's dazzled me quite a bit. I deeply enjoyed paying attention to the lighting and the smells and now the floors moved. Of course, I don't think that shined through because my editors were like, "Um, we should tell a story here," which is good. But just so you know! When you see little snippets of the lighting or how the dock worked or the curtain, that was me having a geeky good time! That tunnel scene getting into the cave? I had so much fun figuring out how that would work and how that would feel and what some of the "science" might be for making that happen. Is there a lot of science there? Probably not. But I had fun with it.

The Politics

This book focuses more on the politics of living in a society. That's not something I ever thought I'd want to write about, but as I was watching these leaders fight and maneuver through power, I realized this was actually pretty fun to watch.
