Synopsis:
High above the sea, floats the pristine city of the Heliana. Home to winged-lion shapeshifters―the Leonodai―and protected from the world of humans by an elite group of warriors, the Heliana has only known peace.

After years of brutal training, seventeen-year-old Rowan is ready to prove her loyalty to the city and her people to become one of the Leonodai warriors. But before Rowan can take the oath, a deadly disease strikes the city’s children. Soon the warriors―including two of Rowan’s closest friends―are sent on a dangerous mission to find a fabled panacea deep within enemy lands.

Left behind, Rowan learns a devastating truth that could compromise the mission and the fate of the Heliana itself. She must make a decision: stay with the city and become a warrior like she always dreamed, or risk her future in an attempt to save everyone she loves. Whatever Rowan decides, she has to do it fast, because time is running out, and peace can only last so long… 

REVIEW

Haadiya’s thoughts:

This book was a literary treat! The plot is original, and the characters are endearing. I adore the characters’ shapeshifting abilities, the vivid action-packed scenes, and the stunning storyline twist in the final third of the novel. The first few chapters are for character intros and story settings. The world-building was excellent, with a wonderful description of a floating city, the Heliana, their traditions, and festivals, as well as the other kingdoms of Vyrinterra and their people. The story was narrated from multiple perspectives and was very intriguing to read until the end. Rowan, the main character, is a warrior elect who will go to any length to save her kingdom from a deadly disease. This is a book you could totally get lost in and forget you’re reading.

Highly recommend! Thanks a ton to TBRandBeyond for inviting us to participate in this tour.

Ayah’s thoughts:

I found this book to be wonderful! The plot is written well and the shape-shifting abilities given to the characters are unique and exciting. The concepts and ideas were absolutely breathtaking, and it’s easy to get invested. A floating city, magic preserved by a royal bloodline and a threat to their people leads the characters on the adventure of a lifetime. The traditions, culture and magic were all written well, and I found that the author did a good job of building a new world. The only issue I had with the story was the unnecessary romance plotline. I found that adding a love triangle so early in the book didn’t add much to the actual story and I wish the author had allowed us to get to know the characters a little better before introducing it. I would love it if the author wrote a second novel, since she could expand more on the characters, their choices and the world itself. All things considered, I did binge this book and I would recommend it to fantasy readers who are looking for something new.
