Waiting on Wednesday: Aerie by Maria Dahvana Headley

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Today we are waiting for Aerie by Maria Dahvana Headley!

The last book of the Magonia duology.

Publication date: October 4th, 2016
Publisher: HarperCollins

Where is home when you were born in the stars?

Aza Ray is back on earth. Her boyfriend Jason is overjoyed. Her family is healed. She’s living a normal life, or as normal as it can be if you’ve spent the past year dying, waking up on a sky ship, and discovering that your song can change the world.

As in, not normal. Part of Aza still yearns for the clouds, no matter how much she loves the people on the ground.

When Jason’s paranoia over Aza’s safety causes him to make a terrible mistake, Aza finds herself a fugitive in Magonia, tasked with opposing her radical, bloodthirsty, recently-escaped mother, Zal Quel, and her singing partner Dai. She must travel to the edge of the world in search of a legendary weapon, The Flock, in a journey through fire and identity that will transform her forever.

In this stunning sequel to the critically acclaimed Magonia, one girl must make an impossible choice between two families, two homes—and two versions of herself.

I quite liked Magonia, the first book of the duology, even though it is very weird and has a weird mythology concept. It was cool to read though because it was so different! I think I gave it 4/5 stars and I'd like to continue because it's only two books anyway. I really like when writers don't overstretch their stories :)

Have you guys read Magonia? What did you think? Will you read Aerie?

Are you excited about Aerie?
