Sunborn Rising: Beneath the Fall by Aaron SafronoffTitle: Sunborn Rising: Beneath the Fall
Pages: 385

On a distant world of forests floating on an ocean around a star,
a blight threatens to plunge all life into darkness.
But three friends seek the light.
Together, they will Fall and be lost.
And at the very Root of darkness, they will find themselves.
But will it be enough to help them find their way home?

The world of Cerulean

Light and water flow from the ocean into the roots of the Great Trees, up through the boughs, and out over the lush canopy. But the once vibrant treescape has grown dim over generations of arboreal life, and the creatures of the forest have forgotten the light.

Barra, a young, willful Listlespur, finds her late father's hidden journal, and reads about the old world and the mysterious plague her father believed destroyed it. He wrote that he warned the Elders. He urged them to take action. Those were his last words.

Together with her two best friends, Barra will explore every bark, wood, and leaf of the Great Forest to relight her world and complete her father's story, even if she has to travel beneath the Fall.

First and foremost, can someone point me to the quickest path to Cerulean.

Second, I cannot wait for book 2.

Third, be sure to come back and read the kids’ review. (I am currently being punished and they are not allowed their Kindles at this time so they are unable to read the book, but once I am done being punished, be sure I will be asking them to read this and share with you all as well!)

Oh! I thought three was enough, but fourth – the images are AMAZING! I am in love with the artistry and the art is so wonderful that as I read, I can see it in my head and it puts me in touch with the characters. Truly magnificent!

As an adult, sometimes we just want to escape into a fantasy world and I felt that I did just that. I felt that while it was based on a young girl and the images were “cartoony” it wasn’t something I felt was childish or could not relate to. I really enjoyed the book and I think it is a book that my 10 year old daughter will enjoy (I’m hoping my 8 year old son will at least give it a chance!)
