About the Book

Magonia is magical. A high-ying, refresing, and literally out-of-the-blue fantasy with great characters, emotional depth, and a unique fantasy world that I never saw coming.”-Victoria Aveyard, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Red Queen

Aza Ray is drowning in thin air. Since she was a baby, Aza has suffered from a mysterious lung disease that makes it ever harder for her to breathe, to speak-to live.

So when Aza catches a glimpse of a ship in the sky, her family chalks it up to a cruel side effect of her medication. But Aza doesn't think this is a hallucination. She can hear someone on the ship calling her name.

Only her best friend, Jason, listens. Jason, who's always been there. Jason, for whom she might have more-than-friendly feelings. But before Aza can consider that thrilling idea, something goes terribly wrong. Aza is lost to our world-and found by another.

Magonia.

Above the clouds, in a land of trading ships, Aza is not the weak and dying thing she was. In Magonia, she can breathe for the first time-better, she has immense power. As she navigates her new life, she discovers that war is coming. Magonia and Earth are on the cusp of a reckoning, and in Aza's hands lies the fate of the whole of humanity-including the boy who loves her. Where do her loyalties lie

“Maria Davana Headley is a firecracker: she's whip smart with a heart, and she writes like a dream.”

Neil Gaiman, bestselling author of The Graveyard Book and Coraline
