  • A Publishers’ Weekly Fall 2015 Top 10 SF, Fantasy & Horror book!
  • Library Journal Debut of the Month

“… 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

“Extraordinary worldbuilding and cascading levels of intrigue make Wilde’s debut fantasy novel soar… This well-written and fascinating exploration of a strange land is an extremely promising start for an exciting new writer.” Starred Review, Publisher’s Weekly, June 2015

“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” Starred Review, Library Journal, July 2015
