Air Born - Do You Dream of Flying? by Timothy Trimble

Avitorians, who have the ability to fly, live among us, but they keep it secret due to being hunted by a group called The Eighteenth.

Air born - do you dream of flying?

Leif, Carina and their families are Avitorians, a rare subset of the human race with the unique ability to fly. Their numbers are small but they have existed silently among us since the rule of Ahmose I, the Pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty of Egypt. Their ability was coveted by his successor, Amenhotep, who founded the Eighteenth as a task force dedicated to discovering the secret of their ability so he could fly himself. Each generation of their descendants have been commanded to continue this mission and are now so technologically advanced they could very well succeed – they just need to capture an Avitorian to experiment on. Little could they predict the effect that the determination of a lover torn from his soulmate would have on their plans.

Sample text:

After what seemed like an hour or more, Leif stretched out his arms, closed his eyes, and slowly spun around. Reaching out with his senses, he could feel the forest below. Stopping suddenly, he thought he felt something different. Something at his same altitude and not too far away. He turned toward the direction of the sensation. He slowly opened his eyes while trying to maintain his sense. Right away he saw it. His heart jumped into a rapid pulse when he realized it wasn’t a thing or machine, but rather, a person. At first, he thought it was Georgeo trying to sneak up on him, to test him out. But Georgeo didn’t have long, blonde, hair, and he sure wasn’t a female. She was hovering in the clouds, facing away from him. He guessed she was about fifty yards away. Far enough that he couldn’t see any other details other than the back of her head. Her hair danced with the fluctuations of the light breeze. He didn’t know what to do. It was as if all his senses, his muscles, and his mind, had instantly shut down.
Should I say something? Should I get closer or should I just watch from a distance? Does she know that I’m here? The thoughts bombarded him and none of them with any clear answers. His heart skipped a beat when she rose up slightly out of the clouds. She wore a flowing white blouse which made it appear as if she was a part of the cloud itself. She reminded him of the tales of mermaids who would briefly make an appearance above the waters to entice the sailors away from their ships. As quickly as that mental image came to him, she plunged down into the clouds, disappearing into the blanket of white.  
“Wait!” he shouted without even thinking. He quickly flew over to where she had entered into the cloud, but she wasn’t there. Closing his eyes and extending his arms, he slowly spun around - trying to get a sense for where she went.

Already translated. Translated by Nazareth Hernandez
Author review:
It was a real pleasure working with Nazareth for the Spanish translation of Air Born. There was a minimum amount of proofreading for a few phrases since the target market is North American Spanish. Nazareth was very communicative. Regardless of the difficulties, she faced in her country, she got it done. I will definitely work with her again for my other books.
