Moon has spent his life hiding what he is — a shape-shifter able to transform himself into a winged creature of flight. An orphan with only vague memories of his own kind, Moon tries to fit in among the tribes of his river valley, with mixed success. Just as Moon is once again cast out by his adopted tribe, he discovers a shape-shifter like himself… someone who seems to know exactly what he is, who promises that Moon will be welcomed into his community. What this stranger doesn't tell Moon is that his presence will tip the balance of power… that his extraordinary lineage is crucial to the colony's survival… and that his people face extinction at the hands of the dreaded Fell! Now Moon must overcome a lifetime of conditioning in order to save and himself… and his newfound kin.

Martha Wells: The Cloud Roads

Voltak vele problémáim, elsősorban világ/fajépítés terén, de a világ többi része remekül kidolgozott (repülő szigetek! repülő hajók! történelem! repülő sárkány!), Moon egy fahéjas csiga, aki úgy gyalogol át a „Lone Man” sztereotípián, ahogy nem szégyell az érzékenységével, Chimét és a kis királynőt pedig örökbe akarom fogadni.

„Why? What's wrong with him?” Thorn wanted to know.
„That's still being debated,” Moon said.


Chime's expression suggested that the question could be more idiotic, but he wasn't sure how.

„…I – "She seemed to steel herself. "Would be honored to take you as consort, except, apparently, I have no idea how.”
Nonplussed, Moon stared at her. „Uh.”
Jade shook her head in frustration. „I know in theory. I tried the gifts; that's what all the tradition say to do, but they didn't say what to do if you didn't accept them.”

„With rueful resignation, she added, "Stone said I should just take you, fight it out, and get it over with.”
That was typical. „He gives me lousy advice, too.”

Stone landed on a terrace below the collapse, folded his wings back, and just stood there. Moon landed a moment later. The sun baked off the rock and bare dirt; the sweet smell of the white blossoms on the gnarled trees couldn't disguise the stench of death.

Moon didn't move. He still found Stone nearly impossible to read. … „I'm not sleeping with you.” If this was going to be a problem, he wanted to find out now, before he spent any more long, miserable days fighting headwinds.
Stone lifted a brow, deeply amused. „I have great-grandchildren older than you.” He pointed to a white seam on his elbow. „You see this scar? That's older than you.”
Moon's eyes narrowed in annoyance, but he wondered if that was true. …

He edged over and eased down next to Stone. The blanket looked shabby but it was thick and well made; it didn't soften the rock but it kept the cold at bay. Rolling on his side, facing away from Moon, Stone said, „I'll try not to molest you in my sleep.”
„Bastard,” Moon muttered. He would have retreated to the other end of the cleft in a huff, but Stone seemed to put out almost as much body heat as a groundling as he did in his other form. Still annoyed, Moon fell asleep.

„Come now, we're kin. We should be friends.”
Jade grinned back. „I'm going to rip your womb out and eat it.” Then she launched herself at Ranea's throat.
