Product description

Review

  1. "This is a must-read for anyone looking for a good adventure." - Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite
  2. "A unique and wonderfully detailed literary fantasy novel." - IndieReader
  3. "A stunning satirical debut novel" - Paige Lovitt for Reader Views
  4. "On Swift Wings is a satirical work that delivers a fascinating tale as Wiens breathes new life into the world of Gulliver's Travels through Cygnus's adventures. Intelligent writing that evokes commentary and conversation." - Liz Konkel for Readers' Favorite
  5. "Brett Wiens is a master storyteller and this novel, the work of a rich imagination, is littered with humor. A spellbinding and delightful read." - Ruffina Oserio for Readers' Favorite
  6. The book is filled with detailed descriptions and the author puts great effort into creating vivid settings for his unique scenes - Malcolm P - Amazon.com
  7. This is a fantastic modern version of Gulliver's Travels! The update was very well done. It wasn't just the same story set in current times; it was a similar story that reflects it's origins, and also how the world has changed to become where it is today. The story is told with humour and intelligence - a truly enjoyable read! - Snowflake - Amazon.ca
  8. The descriptions of the unknown lands were very vivid. I can still picture some of the scenes in my mind very clearly, days after completing the book. The beings that were encountered were also described in detail. The reader is able to feel a sense of each society as a whole, as well as get to know some individuals in that land. - Snowflake for OnlineBookClub.org
