The Sky Warden and the Sun by Sean Williams is the second book of The Change. The first book is called The Stone Mage and the Sea.

This book sees Sal and Shilly continue their adventure. Their guardians have been killed and they have been left to flee capture by the sky wardens, one in particular. In the first book, the children were just that...children. In the second book, we can see their forced growth as they struggle with decisions that adults would have trouble making.

Again, the story isn't...more
Excellent follow-up to 'The Stone Mage & the Sea', starting with a a fantastic escape sequence across the Australian-style landscape, and then immersing us in the complex politics of the Stone Mages and Sky Wardens. It's deliberately-paced yet taut, the descriptions of this strange world are searing and immediate, we're introduced to some great new characters (including the endearingly hyperactive Skender and his solemn yet kind father), and believable new tensions arise between protagonists...more
Once you have met Shilly and Sal, you will understand how the lives of these two are intertwined to make a great adventure. You will not want to let up on the story until you see it through to the last page -- and you will not be disappointed.

Sean Williams uses the extremes of two magic forces, built ultimately on the same principles to show the futility of racism and the blindness of the uneducated. All the while immersing you in a grand adventure across the planet, with imaginative scenery and...more
It took me ages to get into it and continue on and on with it, but I think I read the last 3/4s of it in two days. That first 1/4 was hard... but then WHOOSH.

I adore it. The end half was amazing and all I could do was keep turning the pages.
Continues the story and the intrigue grows. The conflict between the main characters was unexpected, but gives a greater sense of realism to them. I'm looking forward to discoering how it all ends.

It is one of the books I just wasn't able to put down. It doesn't happen very often that I care so deeply about the characters. Cannot wait to read the third one!
Still a good story. The characters are particularly well drawn.

Interesting, different to other fantasies.
