The third sweeping magical reality adventure inspired by the Bronze Age Far East - this is Game of Thrones for a younger audience.
The land of Khandar needs silk. The moths must dance in the palace garden and Tareth must weave once again.
As Maia races across the Vast with the last of the cocoons, she knows the future of the Sun City lies in her hands. But her sister, Elin, will stop at nothing to steal back what was hers and see Caspia crowned as Sun Catcher and Queen.
The silk sighs its secrets and Maia realises that now, more than ever, she must find a Story Singer to sing by her side.
It's hard not to be won over by the zest and originality of Sheila Rance's debut novel SUN CATCHER, set in the Bronze Age Far East ... SUN CATHER is a fine and unusual children's tale - DAILY TELEGRAPH
SUN CATCHER is like Game of Thrones for a younger audience. I have a feeling it might do very well - GUARDIAN
Sheila grew up by the sea, which is probably why Maia's adventures in Sun Catcher start among cliff dwellers, wholive at the edge of the ocean. She started writing Sun Catcher when studying for an MA at Bath Spa University and won the United Agents' Prize for the most promising writer on the course in her final year.
When she's not thinking about Maia's adventures, she works with dyslexic pupils in a mainstream comprehensive.
She is currently writing the second book in the trilogy, Storm Chaser.
