Vagabonds of the skies
A new story with the same retro-futurist setting as Dresseur de fantôme (Ghost Tamer).
The world had been redefined by a series of climatic catastrophes, changing winds and marine currents. Once the old maps had become obsolete, a new day could begin for adventurers…
The future of Tom Werenfeld was completely mapped out: second-in-command to Captain Peck, he would inherit the frigate Odorante and sail the ocean seas… But the night before his eighteenth birthday, a sudden impulse drives him to leave everything to go in search of the mysterious fraternity of the Flesh Sculptors. There had been no trace for years of these surgeons with legendary talents.
Heir to a lineage of circus artists renowned the world over, Ila Malaga had always assumed that she would follow in the footsteps of her tightrope-walking mother. Her accidental death changed Ila's life for ever, transforming the AeroCircus of her childhood into a sad prison. So, when she crosses Tom's path, she immediately decides to go with him and find the Flesh Sculptors, who, they say, knew how to create winged men.
