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 release it.

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.

Oooh, that's gorgeous :D And I can't wait to read it!

I agree, great cover. You've had consistently excellent covers on the Raksura books.

ooh, looking forward to it!

That looks (and sounds!) amazing - so looking forward to it!

Wonderful cover and I know I'll love the book--I always do!

*excited dolphin squeaking!*
Also, I agree 100% with the quote.

Oh that is a *gorgeous* cover. *adds to to-buy list*

I am so happy with the cover!

Like everybody else said, it's a great cover. But but but but but why can't read this now please be released little book and come to my eyeballs so you can be read and I don't like waiting so please hurry and if there's a special hell for run-on sentences I am definitely going to end up there but I don't care because I'm unreasonably excited by the prospect of another Raksura book and I'm only going to be patient about this because I have no choice and I must stop typing now.

Okay, done. Whew!

It looks great, so exciting! :)

Please do let us know if there's going to be an audiobook version, and if there will be a preorder for it on Audible!

Thank you! I don't know about the audiobook yet. It basically depends on how well the previous audiobook (Stories of the Raksura II) sold, and whether audible wants to do this one.

I am SO EXCITED for this book. Can not wait.
