        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."

      • premium: False
      • source: Liz Bourke, Tor.com, on Horizon
      • content: "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."
      • premium: False
      • source: Elitist Book Reviews on Horizon
      • content: "[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."
      • premium: False
      • source: Aliette de Bodard, award-winning author of House of Shattered Wings, on Cloudbound
      • content: "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."
      • premium: False
      • source: Ken Liu, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of The Grace of Kings, on Cloudbound
      • content: "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."

        July 24, 2017
        Spanning the ground and sky in a city of spires where people sail between their towers grown from living bone on wings of silk, the conclusion to 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. Unaware of the extent of the danger threatening the bone spires, political leader Macal is trying to breathe life into his desperate community. Below, a young woman named Kirit and her companions have survived a fall from the sky only to discover that their city’s progenitor, an unimaginably giant creature, is being crushed and starved by the weight of the towers. When disaster hastens the city’s demise, some of the fallen begin to climb, hoping to save those who still live above, but the solution they devise for evacuation seems needlessly complicated; there’s no plausible reason that most of the citizens can’t simply glide down on their own wings. Despite this flaw, fans of the series will be satisfied by its conclusion.

        August 1, 2017

        At the end of Cloudbound, only a few people know the true nature of the city of bone towers. Two of them, childhood friends Kirit and Nat, were thrown from the towers as punishment, falling through the clouds that are the boundaries of the known world to those in the towers. On the ground, they discover that their city is dying. Their new world is baffling and dangerous, but those still on the towers need to be warned that the city will fall, and soon. As Nat fights his way back up to the towers with the young scavenger Ciel, he will have to contend with the political upheaval above. Meanwhile, Kirit leads the search for a new home for the people of the bone towers. VERDICT The conclusion of Wilde's "Bone Universe" trilogy builds on the powerful world she created in Updraft, and while the pacing dips in places as the focus shifts between the tower and the ground, it is a satisfying end to an inventive series.--MM
