Silver Wing, Volume One: Gale is the first in a line of novellas following Antoine Silver, a black high-school senior who ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time and is gifted with superpowers. Crafted as if it were a comic book, the series starts by focusing on this single character and expanding the universe as the story progresses.
Antoine’s father died in the line of duty when he was a child. Antoine had always planned to follow in his father’s footsteps by living heroically, but he had no idea that he would gifted with the opportunity to become an actual superhero. He has to learn how to control his new powers and is given multiple opportunities to make the choice between using those powers for good or evil. As with most superheroes, Antoine has an inherent desire to do good, but is unsure of the best ways to do so. In this first novel he is forced to deal with the loss of multiple family members, making new friends, and his desire to prove to himself and his family that he is capable of great things.
Silver Wing, Volume One: Gale is a dynamic, unique take on the superhero novel that strives to bring diversity to a genre that has been criticized for its lack of people of color in prominent roles. Over time, the authors hope that the series will open a candid discussion on representation in young adult literature.
