It didn’t take long for me to be swept up above the clouds into the world of Updraft. Young Kirit gives us our point of view, as she struggles to learn not only her place in her city’s future, but about the future of the city itself.
The city is astounding. Fran’s worldbuilding skills are amazing. At times, I felt my heart pounding as I thought about what it would be like to live every moment of your life on precarious towers of bone rising to incomprehensible heights. I hope for more, as I would like to once again get my feet off the ground and learn more about the people and history of Kirit’s city.
