What if you survived a plane crash only to be surrounded by sentient horses, feral humans, giants, immortals, necromancers, anti-intellectuals and more?

On Swift Wings is the story of Cygnus, an ordinary young man whose travels and adventures shine a society-vexing satirical light on modern life. It is a brilliantly written, fantastic update of Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift, written in his original sardonic style.

In a quest to survive his predicament, he encounters fantastic creatures and learns of their ways. His odyssey takes him to places inhabited by giants and tiny diminutive humans, decrepifying immortals, anti-intellectuals, and magic-wielding necromancers.

On Swift Wings is a deep, expertly written fantasy/adventure novel that encourages readers to examine their world through the satirical lens of several stunningly painted unique and isolated islands filled sly humour.

If you love classic satire and fantasy, read Brett Wiens' modern masterpiece, On Swift Wings.
