The Floating World ( called Monde flottant in the original French) is the eleventh album of the Sillage series.

Plot Edit

Condemned but left free, Nävis has been fired from Sillage's secret service and has to rely on odd jobs. The lawyer who defended her during her trial gives her a mission: go to the planet RiBhehn to find Bobo, who has gotten lost in the turmoils of a local civil war. On RiBhehn, the feudal government was just thrown off by the emperor's loyal supporters, and Sillage is trying to gather as much as possible of a rare ore there.

Background Edit

RiBhehn's society is very reminiscent of Meiji-era Japan, both in clothing and architecture as well as in social matters and political developments.
