An expedition of groundlings from the Empire of Kish have
traveled through the Three Worlds to the Indigo Cloud court
of the Raksura, shape-shifting creatures of flight that live
in large family groups. The groundlings have found a sealed
ancient city at the edge of the shallow seas, near the deeps
of the impassable Ocean. They believe it to be the last home
of their ancestors and ask for help getting inside. But the
Raksura fear it was built by their own distant ancestors,
the Forerunners, and the last sealed Forerunner city they
encountered was a prison for an unstoppable evil.
Prior to the groundlings’ arrival, the Indigo Cloud court
had been plagued by visions of a disaster that could destroy
all the courts in the Reaches. Now, the court’s mentors
believe the ancient city is connected to the foretold
danger. A small group of warriors, including consort Moon,
an orphan new to the colony and the Raksura’s idea of
family, and sister queen Jade, agree to go with the
groundling expedition to investigate. But the predatory Fell
have found the city too, and in the race to keep the danger
contained, the Raksura may be the ones who inadvertently
The Edge of Worlds, from celebrated fantasy author Martha
Wells, returns to the fascinating world of The Cloud Roads
for the first book in a new series of strange lands, uncanny
beings, dead cities, and ancient danger.
