Summary, etc.: Chosen as the sacrifice needed to break the tether that holds her city in the sky to the planet below, Sera feels betrayed, and as things don't go as planned, she finds herself not only fighting for her own life, but the lives of her people as well.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 November #2
    Ewing's unusual dystopian fantasy, first in a duology, follows Sera—a Cerulean living in the sapphic City Above the Sky, magically tethered to the planet below—and siblings Agnes and Leo, humans living on the tethered planet. Curious and restless, Sera is bursting with unanswerable questions about the Tether and the planet below. Then the High Priestess announces that it's time for the City to find a new planet to sustain them. Sera is chosen as the sacrifice required to break the Tether, but she unexpectedly survives the long fall through space, landing in the country of Kaolin. Agnes and Leo find her, which brings her into the clutches of their politically powerful father, who recognizes Sera's worth immediately: Kaolin is suffering ecological collapse, unlike its resource-rich neighbor Pelago, and the key seems to be magic. Ewing's confident and unique world building, appealing characters, and innumerable mysteries (all left at crucial points) will entice readers through otherwise familiar dystopian elements. As book one is frustratingly heavy on setup, book two will be essential reading for answers. Grades 7-10. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
