About the Book
Author: R. J. Anderson
Genre: Christian Fantasy
Release Date: August 18, 2020
To save her people, a wingless girl must learn to fly. As a piskey girl born without wings and raised underground, Ivy yearns for flight almost as much as she misses her long-lost mother.
But the world outside the Delve is full of danger, and her dreams seem hopeless until she meets a mysterious faery who makes her an enticing offer: If Ivy helps him escape the Delve’s dungeon, he’ll teach her how to fly. Freeing Richard could cost Ivy her reputation, perhaps even her life.
But when her fellow piskeys start to disappear and her beloved little sister goes missing, Ivy has no choice but to take the risk. Deadly threats and shocking revelations await Ivy as she ventures into a strange new world, uncovers long-buried secrets about her family’s past, and finds that no one—not even herself—is entirely what they seem.

R. J. Anderson, author of the No Ordinary Fairy Tale series, returns to the fairy realm with a new series about piskeys, faeries, and spriggans. Previously published in the UK, her fantasy series is now available for American readers.
In Swift, a wingless piskey — Ivy — lives underground with the rest of her community. Considered disabled because she doesn’t have wings, Ivy manages to keep the family unit together after her mother mysteriously disappears — or was she kidnapped?
Swift is a captivating story, created especially for young teens (ages 12-16). The first chapter pulls in the reader and keeps them engaged until the very end, with plot twists galore. Ivy grows in courage over the course of the book. She learns to look beyond what is accepted by others to discover for herself what is true.
