I read the first page. I kept reading. The story is multi-layered, with even more secrets hinted at while none are fully resolved. I can't think of what specifics to share without giving away the story. But Elle is a courageous, generous, inventive, young women on the verge of discovering just how special she is. And how does Elberic fit into the story? And what torments await Alix? I want to read more but it's not yet written. I look forward to the continuation of the series and seeing how Elle can save the kingdom of the Sylari like her hero.
Princess Alelle is the sort of character I love following. First off, she has the world’s biggest chip on her shoulder. Her father thrusts many expectations upon her as a princess of knightsages, expectations she’s not sure she can meet. She suffers through the humiliation and shame of being the only person of her race afraid of flying. No matter how successful she is with her studies and magic training, she is mocked and bullied for that weakness. Even her status as a princess does not protect her, as she lives in a society with a cutthroat honor system: where pride and ambition mean everything, where any perceived weakness will be exploited. Despite her bitterness and weakness, she’s a tough cookie who does not shrink from responsibility, who has dreams and ambitions of her own, and who is not afraid of challenging tradition. As the reader, I can’t help but root for her.
I don’t want to say much about the plot in order to avoid spoilers. But it was surprisingly unpredictable with stakes that steadily increased throughout the story, leaving me at the edge of my seat.
A fantastic read! The world is original, the story is engaging, and the writing is flawless. I highly recommended it and can’t wait for the sequel.
The world is incredible--a city within a spire, all surrounding a single "breathway." The inhabitants, a race called the Sylari, a very cool type of winged humanoid. The main character, a teenage princess facing a harrowing choice, the results of which may put her's father's life and entire family hanging in the balance.

This is a wonderful book. I can't wait to read the rest of this series.
