Skyland is a sci-fi action adventure series that follows a heroic young brother and sister team searching for their parents in a new world order. In the year 2251, the earth shattered into millions of blocks that now float in orbit around the earth’s core, but these blocks remained suitable for living, and life continued on them. Soon, children with telekinetic powers–the Seijin–appeared. The earth’s dictatorship, known as The Sphere, raised these children to enforce their power. A resistance movement of Pirates formed, but disbanded after their leader Marcus Farrell disappeared. Skyland’s young heroes Mahad and Lena find themselves unlikely members of the gang of Pirate rebels after their mother is kidnapped and imprisoned. They begin a journey to free their mother, fight the control of The Sphere, and unravel the mystery of their father, Marcus Farrell.
