  • Shatter the Sky, Rebecca Kim Wells
    Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 9781534437906, July 30, 2019 (Young Adult)

    “Every so often, a book comes along that hits all of your favorite things and knocks it out of the park. For me, Shatter the Sky is that book. Dragons? It’s got ’em. Queer person-of-color protagonist? Check. A world reminiscent of Avatar: The Last Airbender? You got it! Wells delivers sharp, nuanced political commentary and a fast-paced plot full of intrigue and deception that will delight fantasy fans everywhere.”

    -Sami Thomason, Square Books, Oxford, MS

    Shatter the Sky is a book of epic world-building, incredible heart, and one explosive ending. I cannot wait to see where Rebecca Kim Wells will take us next!”

    -Liz Rice, The Book Cellar, Chicago, IL

    “As YA fantasy grows ever more complex, Shatter the Sky stands out as having a classic feel — familiar, simple, but impeccably executed. Maren’s quest to steal a dragon and rescue her girlfriend is, at its heart, a politically driven story about risking it all, digging deep and then deeper, and discovering who you are along the way. I couldn’t put this down and I can’t wait for more!”

    -Casey Leidig, Green Apple Books on the Park, San Francisco, CA
