Kirkus Reviews' 27 Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Books to Read in September
Unbound Worlds' Best Sci-Fi & Fantasy Books of September 2017

"One of the most fun, imaginative fantasy novels...I'm already anxiously awaiting her next book." —Book Riot on Updraft

"That rare bird, the follow-up to a highly praised first novel that doesn't just equal its predecessor's accomplishments, but exceeds them." —Locus on Cloudbound

A City of living bone towers crumbles to the ground and danger abounds. Kirit Densira has lost everything she loved the most—her mother, her home, and the skies above. Nat Brokenwings—once Kirit's brother long before the rebellion tore them apart—is still trying to save his family in the face of catastrophe. They will need to band together once more to ensure not just their own survival, but that of their entire community.

As bridges burned, Mondarath fought above the cloud …

Each night, our city dreamed of danger, crying out for help I could not give.

Praise for Horizon

Praise for the Bone Universe Trilogy

"Wilde’s fantastical trilogy (after Cloudbound) takes on violent political divisions, ecological desolation, and the imminent death of the only world the characters have ever known....Fans of the series will be satisfied by its conclusion." —Publishers Weekly on Horizon

"Wilde gives us a compellingly strange world, one that is alien in the best and most interesting senses. And the characters are fun. It’s a worthy conclusion to the trilogy, and a satisfying one." —Liz Bourke, Tor.com, on Horizon

"[A] series worth reading because it takes readers to a completely different place than any they’ve seen before, to a world where people believe flying is life itself, and how sometimes even when change is hard it’s not necessarily going to become something worse." —Elitist Book Reviews on Horizon

“A fantastic follow-up to Updraft—I liked it better than its predecessor, particularly for what it says about the politics of fear and prejudice, and how giving people what they want isn't always the best thing." —Aliette de Bodard, award-winning author of House of Shattered Wings, on Cloudbound

"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 Kings, on Cloudbound

"A book that’s impossible to put down. [Wilde has] planted herself firmly in the “authors to watch” category." —Andrew Liptak on Updraft

"The world of the towers grown from bone, where residents strap on wings and soar the air currents, is captivating...Kirit’s journey to find her place is satisfying, but the real draw is a world that readers will be anxious to revisit in future volumes of this exciting new series." —Library Journal, starred review, on Updraft
