Description

From New York Times bestselling author Amy Ewing (The Jewel) comes the exciting first book in a new fantasy duology. Rich, vivid world-building and ethereal magic combine in an epic tale that's perfect for fans of Snow Like Ashes, These Broken Stars, or Magonia.

Sera Lighthaven has always felt as if she didn't quite belong among her people, the Cerulean, who live in the City Above the Sky. She is curious about everything--especially the planet that her City is magically tethered to--and can't stop questioning things. Sera has always longed for the day when the tether will finally break and the Cerulean can move to a new planet.

But when Sera is chosen as the sacrifice to break the tether, she feels betrayed by everything in which she'd been taught to trust. In order to save her City, Sera must end her own life.

But something goes wrong, and Sera survives, ending up on the planet below in a country called Kaolin. Sera has heard tales about the dangerous humans who live here, and she quickly learns that these dangers were not just stories.

Meanwhile, back in the City, all is not what it seems, and the life of every Cerulean may be in danger if Sera is not able to find a way home.

Back cover copy

Sera has always felt as if she didn't quite belong among her people, Tthe Cerulean, who live in the City Above the Sky. She is curious about everything--especially the planet that her City is magically tethered to--and can't stop questioning her three mothers, her best friend, Leela, and even the High Priestess. Sera has longed for the day when the tether will finally break and the Cerulean can move to a new planet. But when Sera is chosen as the sacrifice required to break the tether, she feels betrayed by everything she'd been taught to trust. In order to save her City, Sera must throw herself from its edge and end her own life.

But something goes wrong and Sera survives the fall, landing on the planet below in a place called Kaolin. Sera has heard tales about humans, and she quickly learns that the dangers her mothers warned her of were not just stories. Meanwhile, back in the City, all is not what it seems, and the life of every Cerulean may be threatened if Sera is not able to find a way home.

New York Times bestselling author Amy Ewing brilliantly conceives an idyllic world with a dark and mysterious underbelly, where Cerulean and humans alike must dig deep to find the magic within in order to survive.
