Silk whispers. Clouds gather. A storm is coming.

Many years ago, a storm brought Maia to the cliffs. Now she is Sun Catcher in the land of Khandar, but when her father, Tareth, needs silk, Maia must go back to the clifftops she once fled. Danger awaits her every step of the way: assassins, thought-stealers, the Marsh Lord - all greedy for her power. And Razek, who deserted his people to follow her, must pay a high price as he tries to bend wind and rain to his will - and chase away the storms.

Film rights to the trilogy have now been optioned.

MEDIA REVIEWS
... 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 Catcher is a fine and unusual children's tale. -- Martin Chilton * THE TELEGRAPH *
And so the quest is set in this, although first part of a trilogy, completely self-contained story. Reading the book what came across was a love of nature what with the animals such as the leopard, eagle, lizard and moths that adorn the cover. Plus the animals have names, and the relationships with the humans are close, together with a touch of magic. -- 11/02/13 * BOOKISH VARIETY *
Flame-haired Maia has known she was different from the Cave Dwellers since the day many years before when she and her father Tareth were washed up, half-drowned, on their beach. But now she is thirteen, and her destiny as the Sun Catcher who must save a distant land from failed harvests and starvation is slowly revealed to her. * THE BOOKBAG *
STORM CHASER is bound to spark the imagination - an ideal read for any child with a taste for adventure and history. -- Sam Hawksmoor * HACK WRITERS *
There are plots, assassins and narrow escapes a-plenty. The imaginative and careful details of the narrative tick many of the typical fantasy epic boxes: a lonely protagonist, animal familiars, internecine family histories and a pervasive connection to the elements and the natural world... STORM CHASER ultimately presents an intriguing, thoroughly researched and cleverly detailed picture of a time and place in history that is not often unearthed. * CUCKOOREVIEW.COM *
