Blythe is a flight attendant with a philosophy degree-- and a fear of heights. And as odd as her career choice might be, it's nowhere near as strange as her life's about to get. She'll fall in love with a mysterious traveler who's either an ordinary frequent flier-- or a terrorist. In search of him, she'll travel to a country that doesn't exist on any maps, become targeted by a violent anti-terrorist group, and inevitably find herself at the center of a race to find an artifact that may change the science of flight forever. Suddenly Blythe's life is headed for the most exotic destination of all: the unknown. With her job, heart, safety and sanity all up in the air, will she fail and fall or learn how to fly?"

An odd, early non-superhero work by the author who would go on to pen the pioneering MS. MARVEL revamp. While Ms. Marvel employed classic YA tropes, this is geared toward adults and draws from current events anxieties to draw in the reader. The story is surreal in the manner of Salman Rushdie, which keeps the reader guessing but isn't especially involving. The heroine resembles a Mary Sue... or maybe Wilson is playing with the usual gender expectations in fantasy adventure stories like this.

While the story is well written, it feels somewhat hollow. It is filled with many twists and mysteries akin to a season of Lost but ultimately doesn't add up to much, leaving the reader slightly unsatisfied and not eager to continue the series.
