As heir to a kingdom of floating continents, Kali has spent her life bound by limits: by her duties as a member of the royal family, by a forced betrothal to the son of a nobleman, and by the edge of the only world she's ever known—a small island hovering above a monster-ridden earth, long since uninhabited by humans. She is the Eternal Flame of Hope for what's left of mankind, the wick and the wax burning in service for her people, and for their revered Phoenix, whose magic keeps them aloft. 

When Kali falls off the edge of her kingdom and miraculously survives, she is shocked to discover there are still humans on the earth. Determined to get home, Kali entrusts a rugged monster-hunter named Griffin to guide her across a world overrun by chimera, storm dragons, basilisks and other terrifying creatures. But the more time she spends on earth, the more dark truths she begins to uncover about her home in the sky, and the more resolute she is to start burning for herself.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7 Up—Sun combines the increasingly popular setting of floating realms with dashes of dystopia and romance and tops it off with some monsters for a wonderful fantasy novel. Kali is the daughter of the Monarch of Ashra, who rules over the lands in the sky of Ashra, Burumu, Nartu, and the Floating Isles. Although Kali does not love him, she is betrothed to Jonash, the son of the Sargon, protector of the realm. She overhears the Elder Aban and an officer of the Elite Guard talking of rebellion in Burumu and knowledge from the ancient annals that has been hidden. She reveals this conversation to her best friend, Elisha, and Jonash as they are strolling at night near the edge of Ashra. Jonash stumbles, and trying to save him, Kali falls. She awakens later, alive but in pain on the earth below, a place that she was always taught was filled with monsters. She is saved from her first monster attack by Griffin, a young man about her age. Kali is surprised to learn that a few humans still live in the land below, and Griffin begins to teach her that many of the other things that she learned in Ashra were false. This brilliant tale should appeal to fans of Lauren DeStefano and Veronica Rossi, as it mixes the sky kingdom world of one with the survival elements of the other. VERDICT A must for all teen fantasy collections.—Eric Norton, McMillan Memorial Library, Wisconsin Rapids, WI
