Ariel (Russian: Ариэль) is a science fiction novel by Alexander Beliaev published for the first time in 1941.

The main character, Ariel, was given the power to fly without any device. He and a young friend escape from the school they were confined in. In the course of the events, Ariel discovers that he is an Englishman, and was taken to that special school in India because he and his sister were rich, and that he was given into custody to people who want his money.

The novel was made into a film in 1992, directed by Yevgeni Kotov.[1]
