Library Journal Review

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 © Copyright 2017.
