Heir to the Sky by Amanda Sun
Hardcover: 293 pages
Publication date: April 26th 2016
Publisher: Harlequin TEEN
Add on: Goodreads

The night made me brave, but the sunlight makes me afraid, frightened that I’ll loose everything I never knew I wanted.


There are too many now, the entire courtyard bloodred with the blossoms and they’re falling in my eyes and tangling in my hair. All I can see is crimson and scarlet drowning the world.

I had mixed feels about this book, but Heir to the Sky reminded me of a mash up between Princess Mononoke and Laputa in the Sky.
