“One of the most original fantasy novels I’ve read this year.” ~ NPR Books!

“… 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…. WithUpdraft, Fran Wilde has written a compelling debut, and I for one look forward to seeing what she does next.”  ~ Locus, May 2015

STARRED REVIEW, Publisher’s Weekly: “Extraordinary worldbuilding and cascading levels of intrigue make Wilde’s debut fantasy novel soar.” ~ June 2015

STARRED REVIEW, 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” ~ July 2015

Fran Wilde’s Updraft is a Soaring Debut Updraft is Fran Wilde’s debut novel, and an absolute delight to read, a coming of age story set in a truly original world, blending romance, conspiracy, awesome training montages, and some good-old-fashioned adventure to create a book that’s impossible to put down. She’s also planted herself firmly in the “authors to watch” category. ~ Barnes & Noble 2015
