CAN'T WAIT TO READ: Heir to the Sky by Amanda Sun

Release date: April 26th 2016
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Purchase: Amazon

Synopsis via Goodreads:
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.

About the Author
Amanda is a YA author and proud Nerdfighter. She was born in Deep River, Canada, a very small town without traffic lights or buses, and where stranger safety is comprised of what to do if you see a bear—or skunk. She started reading fantasy novels at 4 and writing as soon as she could hold a pencil. Hopefully her work’s improved since then.
​In university Amanda took English, Linguistics, and Asian History, before settling into Archaeology, because she loved learning about the cultures and stories of ancient people. Of course, she didn’t actually become an archaeologist—Amanda has an intense fear of spiders. She prefers unearthing fascinating stories in the safety of her living room.

  8. Why did I think of Cephiro (from Magic Knight Rayearth) when I read that bit about floating islands?

    I've only read the first book of Amanda Sun's Paper Gods series. I have to rectify that.

    Thanks for stopping by
