Review

Andre Norton Award Winner for Best Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy
2016 Compton-Crook Award Winner
Nebula Award Nominee For Best Novel
Publisher's Weekly Fall 2015 SF, Fantasy & Horror Top 10 

STARRED REVIEW "The world of the towers grown from bone, where residents strap on wings and soar the air currents, is captivating. As a coming-of-age story, 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, July 7, 2015

STARRED REVIEW -- Extraordinary worldbuilding and cascading levels of intrigue make Wilde's debut fantasy novel soar.  ... The setting is marvelously unusual, a city grown from living bone and populated by everyday people who have left the ground far behind.... This well-written and fascinating exploration of a strange land is an extremely promising start for an exciting new writer. " - Publisher's Weekly June 2015

"... The world itself is as much a character as any of the individuals within its pages, and in the grand tradition of science fiction and fantasy, the main character's growth and struggles are bound up with learning more about the world. ... I galloped through it to find out what came next.... With Updraft, Fran Wilde has written a compelling debut, and I for one look forward to seeing what she does next." - Locus May 2015

"A world with a detailed, believable history and society... rich with themes of tradition, progress, ambition, and class struggles that will resonate with readers." (E.C. Myers, Norton-Award winning author, Silence of the Six.)
