Overview

MERIDIAN is the story of Sephie, a sheltered young girl whose life resembles nothing so much as a fairy tale. The beloved only child of the Minister of Meridian, she grows up with an entire floating city as her playground. Then her father dies, and she inherits a sigil imbued with the power to create. So does her wicked Uncle Ilahn, except that his powers are bent on destruction and domination. Suddenly Sephie finds herself at the center of a power struggle, and quickly she learns that there is more than love in the world. Meridian V. 4: Coming Home is a floating sky island of shipbuilders ravaged by the occupying forces from Cadador, the island of merchants and contract holders. The Minister of Meridian, Sephie, has survived a trial by fire. Returning home, Sephie will use the strange healing powers she's been given to banish the Cadadorians from her island. Unfortunately, her Uncle Ilahn was also given a sigil and its wonderful ability to manipulate energies – but his power destroys. Merdian is a coming-of-age story that appeals to the audience of “Harry Potter” fans with its magical battles and fantastic setting all narrated by Sephie. Featuring first Associate Artist program graduate Steve McNiven's latest work, this book spotlights the work of an artist destined to be one of comics' greatest.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Adult/High School-In this continuation of Taking the Skies (CrossGeneration, 2002), Sephie, a girl gifted with extraordinary powers, fights Rho Rhustane, a godlike being who has just introduced a cannon to Demetria. Meanwhile, the course of true love runs roughly as her friend Feabie continues her campaign to win the heart of Sephie's childhood friend Jad. A wicked uncle and his manipulative mistress team up to cause trouble for Sephie, her crew, and the people of Meridian, and she deals with rage and the urge to kill. Eventually, she must face the fear that her powers provoke in other people. Sephie's responsibilities continue to grow, and she is moving away from being part of Meridian to claiming a position in Demetria. The vivid art is one of the strong points of the book. Sephie continues to be a strong, appealing heroine in this engaging, affecting drama.-Susan Salpini, Fairfax County Public Schools, VA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
