    Air was a wonderful experience into a world of magic, heartache, darkness but also hope. Silvery Earth is an amazing place with so much on offer, beautifully diverse races and cultures, intriguing laws and politics, incredible world overall. I love the south asian and arabian influences, giving a sword and sorcery tale a different and exotic flavour altogether... And it is an exotic book, with adult themes all over, both in cruelty and in hope. Barb handled this beautifully through poetic words and realistic emotions. The characters all come to life for me. I felt for each of them and by the end of the book really wanted them to make it. I have read other books by Barb but this one stood out as most polished and complete. Thank you for the read. I really enjoyed this book. Air is a wonderful experience and great travel companion :)
