Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Amy Ewing (The Jewel) comes the exciting first audiobook 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 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 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.

It was ok

I wish this book didn't use so much strong language. I almost stopped at the beginning. I like the story concept and finished it because of this but it would have been easy enough to omit the harsh language entirely. It added nothing to the story and just distracted from the characters. I can deal with some but pull out the G D word, with a teenager saying it, just why?

Narrator…from the Rugrats?

Couldn’t finish. Which sucks because the story seemed great. I’ll have to read it instead. I just can’t get past the narrator. She makes all the character sound like they are from the rugrats tv show. Sadly, just can’t get into the story because of that.

Pretty good!

The narrator was great and the story was fun. I am looking forward to the second book!
