Sera has always felt as if she didn’t belong among her people who live in the City Above the Sky. She is too curious—especially about the planet her City is magically tethered to. Sera hopes to see the day when the tether will break, sending the Cerulean to a new planet. But then Sera is chosen as the sacrifice required to break the tether. To save her City, she must throw herself from its edge and end her own life.
But Sera unexpectedly survives, landing in a place called Kaolin, where she quickly learns that the perils of the human world are not just tall tales her three mothers used to tell her. Meanwhile, back in the City, all is not what it seems, and the life of every Cerulean may be in danger if Sera can’t manage to find her way home.
