I'm delighted to see UPDRAFT on this list at +The Huffington Post along with +Ken Liu's Grace of Kings, Seth Dickinson's The Traitor Baru Comorant, and Matt Kressel's King of Shards. 

"Towers of bone, a draconian code of laws, sinister Singers, and mechanical wings are elements of a world that feels foreign and fascinating in Updraft..."

One of my ways of saying thank you to everyone who is uplifting #UPDRAFT  - custom bookplates for pre-orders. Learn how to get yours.

UPDRAFT: Debut of the Month; Starred review in Library Journal! 

"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."
