Gold Wings Rising (Skybound, #3)

by Alex London
on September 1, 2020
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy
Pages: 320

In the final installment of this LGBTQ fantasy series, Kylee and Brysen must fight for their lives and their humanity. Book 1 was a Today Show Book Club Pick!

The war on the ground has ended, but the war with the sky has just begun. After the Siege of the Six Villages, the ghost eagles have trapped Uztaris on both sides of the conflict. The villagers and Kartami alike hide in caves, huddled in terror as they await nightly attacks. Kylee aims to plunge her arrows into each and every ghost eagle; in her mind, killing the birds is the only way to unshackle the city’s chains. But Brysen has other plans.

While the humans fly familiar circles around each other, the ghost eagles create schemes far greater and more terrible than either Kylee or Brysen could have imagined. In the final installment of the Skybound Saga, the tug-of-war between love and power begins to fray, threatening bonds of siblinghood and humanity alike.

5 Reasons Why I’m Excited for Gold Wings Rising

  1. Did I mention epic falconry fantasy? Birds of prey are valued, trained, and feared as well as worshiped.
  2. Fantasy world where homophobia doesn’t exist – there are other issues like classism, religious strife, and political strife.
  3. Actually all of the worldbuilding is so deep and vivid and has layers upon layers that peel back and you just think WOW.
  4. Flawed characters that don’t do the right things half the time but somehow you are routing for them the whole time.
  5. Endings literally leave you dangling on a cliff (some of us love and some of us loathe cliffhangers) and reading the trilogy all at once sounds way better than waiting a year on those cliffs!
