And Sometimes They Fly, A Novel

The disasters of 9/11 trigger a Cataclysm that is unleashed every so many cycles. It can only be averted by the selfless act of the Elect, a trio of exceptional humans who are guided by Milton, a being known as an Elder. The three, all Barbadians, are David Rayside, Marsha Durant and Franck Hurley. And it is their time: to save the world before the deadliest characters of their legends and myths?the baccou, the steel donkey, la djablès, and the heart man?destroy it.  Set in Bridgetown and Montreal, And Sometimes They Fly is a comic-book-flavoured, Mozart-and-tuk-band-backed quest story that asks: How are heroes and villains defined in a post 9/11 world?  What role is there for the global citizen when the superpowers fail to serve and protect?  Sandiford's extraordinary characters leave the reader wondering about the choices they make right up to the novel's final chapter.
