I’m looking for a specific book series I read a while ago. It’s about a boy who time travels to save his sister. From the bits I can remember he meets a shark sky pirate infected with a parasite and traps a god like figure on the dying earth in the last book. One of the books also consists of him fighting a group calling themselves emperors with one called the pigeon emperor and another the firefinch emperor.
