As heir to a kingdom of floating continents, Kali has spent her life bound by limits—by her duties as a member of the royal family; by a forced betrothal to the son of a nobleman; and by the edge of the only world she’s ever known—a small island hovering above a monster-ridden earth, long since uninhabited by humans. She is the Eternal Flame of Hope for what’s left of mankind, the wick and the wax burning in service for her people, and for their revered Phoenix, whose magic keeps them aloft.

When Kali falls off the edge of her kingdom and miraculously survives, she is shocked to discover there are still humans on the earth. Determined to get home, Kali entrusts a rugged monster-hunter named Griffin to guide her across a world overrun by chimera, storm dragons, basilisks, and other terrifying beasts. But the more time she spends on earth, the more dark truths she begins to uncover about her home in the sky, and the more resolute she is to start burning for herself.

Waarom dit boek / Why this book?:

Vorige week las ik voor het eerst over dit boek in de WoW van een andere boeken blogger en ik was meteen weg van de cover, maar vooral van de blurb; vliegende werelden hebben mij altijd al gefascineerd. Ik hoop dat het is wat ik er van verwacht.

Last week was the first time I read about this book on the blog Darkest Sins and I loved the cover but even more the synopsis. I have always been fascinated by floating worlds. Luckily I don’t have to wait very long, next week it will be published.
