Flight Over Telethar is a steampunk fantasy novel for young adults. In the land of Telethar, the many races of the Fae are persecuted and hunted down by human mages that call themselves the Mageri. Sherieth is a Fae girl who grew up hiding her true identity in a human city, apart from her own kind. When her best friend is captured by the Mageri, she is willing to do whatever it takes to find him -even if it means working with Alerid, a cold and dangerous young Mageri officer who she knows she cannot fully trust. Telethar is a coming-of-age tale and a story of redemption, drawing influences from mythology, steampunk subculture, and a variety of fantasy works including the novels of Diana Wynne Jones. This excerpt consists of the prologue and the first three chapters, covering what could be considered the first act of the novel's plot.
