After the dust settles, the City of living bones begins to die, and more trouble brews beneath the clouds in the companion to the Andre Norton Award-winning novel Updraft."A thrilling and complex tale about the most difficult stage of a revolution: what do you do after you win?
Highly recommended both for the story it tells as well as how it tells that story.
Wilde takes risks that pay off hugely." --Ken Liu, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of The Grace of KingsThe Towers are in disarray, without a governing body or any defense against the dangers lurking in the clouds, and daily life is full of terror and strife.
Nat Densira, the wing-brother to Kirit (Skyshouter, Spirebreaker, no-longer-of-Densira) sets out to be a hero in his own way--sitting on the new Council to cast votes protecting Tower-born, and exploring lower tiers to find more materials to repair the struggling City. But what he finds down-tier is more secrets--and now Nat will have to decide who to trust, and how to trust himself without losing those he holds most dear, before a dangerous myth raises a surprisingly realistic threat to the crippled City, in Cloudbound. "I long to know more about the world and where Wilde's imagination will soar next.
In the meantime it's all I can do to slow-clap this powerfully engaging debut: Wilde's world and characters--as is entirely appropriate--blew me away." --NPR on UpdraftBone Universe1) Updraft2) Cloudbound3) Horizon (September 2017)
