Waiting on Wednesday #93: Heir to the Sky by Amanda Sun

Happy Wednesday, fellow book lovers! This week's "can't wait to read" is:

Heir to the Sky
by Amanda Sun
Publication Date: April 26, 2016
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.
This book sounds so interesting!! A little bit of Howl's Moving Castle mixed with a little bit of The Village AND monsters!! I can't wait!

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine.
