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." ―Publishers Weekly on Horizon
"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." ―Liz Bourke, Tor.com, on Horizon
"[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." ―Elitist Book Reviews on Horizon
“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." ―Aliette de Bodard, award-winning author of House of Shattered Wings, on Cloudbound
"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.” ―Ken Liu, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of The Grace of Kings, on Cloudbound
"A book that’s impossible to put down. [Wilde has] planted herself firmly in the “authors to watch” category." ―Andrew Liptak on Updraft
"The world of the towers grown from bone, where residents strap on wings and soar the air currents, is captivating...Kirit’s journey to find her place is satisfying, but the real draw is a world that readers will be anxious to revisit in future volumes of this exciting new series." ―Library Journal, starred review, on Updraft

Narratively HORIZON ties up all the major loose ends for our heroes, leaving me satisfied with their respective fates, even though one character's final chapter had me in tears at 3AM.
There are enough adroit plot twists and turns of loyalty or motive that I often felt buffeted with surprise, but never to the point where I felt lost in the clouds as things fell into place.
It's hard to review a stunning trilogy ending work of this intricate magnitude—either you're here with me on the journey's last leg or you're a new reader, and you owe it to yourself to start with UPDRAFT, to discover the secrets of the amazing Bone Universe just as I and many others did. If the latter is the case, welcome to the grand adventure!
The pacing was perfect. It was a literal page-turner for me, to the point I finished at 4AM, after reading all night long.
I really really want an illustration filled companion book. Or a graphic novel. Or an HBO series. This world is so artfully created the beauty of it begs to be rendered visually.
I need more books set in this universe.
Fran Wilde's epic tale begs for more volumes to explore everything hinted at in this third book.
If you haven't guessed it I heartily recommend you buy this book and finish this amazing trilogy. Because wow good fiction this artful and unique is too rare to pass up.
I was especially impressed by the author's POV shift from chapter to chapter. It's not an easy thing to do, but she carries it off well here, and we never lose the nuances that distinguish the individuals.
Let us hope this is the first of many excellent trilogies from Ms. Wilde.
For me the details of the expanded universe were sometimes hard to follow; sometimes I needed to re-read a paragraph to fully picture what was happening. But hey I had to do the same with Moby Dick!
If you loved the first two books in this series I am confident you'll find this a satisfying (and at times exhilarating) conclusion!
