Summary

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.

A different world

Martha Wells has created an interesting and very different world here. I love the fact that there are no "humans" although most (but not all) species in the book are at least humanoid. The whole adventure has been entertaining. I especially enjoy that these books are less about a "dark lord" conceit and more about the adventures/romance/intrigues of Moon and the court of Indigo Cloud.
I did have a couple of issues with this book. The perspective shifts from Moon a couple of times (I think for the first time in the series?) and I felt it was a little jarring and out of place. Also, at this point there are SO MANY Raksura with names but not really distinct personalities or plot importance especially towards the beginning of this book.
With all of that said I still recommend this book and this series if you are a fantasy reader looking for a change of pace. Mr. Kipiniak is, as ever, a capable and pleasant narrator. Please, please please release "The Harbors of the Sun" on Audible!
