It's the 19th Century, and Azazian England is at its pinnacle. Aeroplanes rule the sky, and a futuristic science known as "picoepistemology" has transformed how people live, think, and reproduce.
Despite these advancements, life is little more than an endless tailspin into liquor, laudanum, and loose women for pilot, Jack Racine. A former captain in the Royal Air Force and current head of the popular aerobatic team, The Sherwood Six, Jack's life is about to be turned upside-down. Starting with the mysterious death of his brother, he reluctantly starts down a path fraught with peril and temptation, from England to Egypt and back.
An exciting blend of alternate history, adventure, and suspense, "The Sky: The World" is a fast-paced journey, along which Jack Racine must fight against his destructive instincts, accept his fate, and prepare to face the architect of the age: the mysterious Doctor Azaz.
