From World Fantasy Award-winning author Fonda Lee comes Untethered Sky, an epic fantasy fable about the pursuit of obsession at all costs. Ester's family was torn apart when a manticore killed her mother and baby brother, leaving her with nothing but her father's painful silence and a single, overwhelming need to kill the monsters that took her family. Ester's path leads her to the King's Royal Mews, where the giant rocs of legend are flown to hunt manticores by their brave and dedicated rukhers. Paired with a fledgling roc named Zahra, Ester finds purpose and acclaim by devoting herself to a calling that demands absolute sacrifice and a creature that will never return her love. The terrifying partnership between woman and roc leads Ester not only on the empire's most dangerous manticore hunt, but on a journey of perseverance and acceptance.… (mais)

Indie SF writer Nathan Lowell has complained that YA is not a genre but a filter that eliminates would-be readers. If that is true, one should be prepared to ignore the label when something good comes along. Fonda Lee’s coming-of-age novella Untethered Sky is such a book—a character-driven story with tense action. We meet Ester, our protagonist, as a child running for her life when her family is gruesomely killed by a manticore. After her rescue from a well, she goes to work in the royal stables training a Roc, the only hunting bird large enough to take on a manticore. She must learn whether she has goals and values beyond vengeance against a mindless predator. Lee’s descriptions are sparse and telling, and she deftly avoids the usual YA gush. ( )

Fonda Lee is one of our most powerful recent writers in the genre. this arabic fantasy novella tells a story about rukhers and their rocs, employed in the wild to hunt manticores. ( )

Only a short audiobook but I enjoyed it a lot. I've been reluctant to try Jade City as I'm not a fan of "mafia" type stories but I liked this enough to encourage me to try it at some point. ( )

Very nice novella about a Roc trainer. I would definitely have read more about this world, but on the other hand the story that is told is very well contained at this length, so just the right length to develop the characters they way they were, whiteout having any slow portions. ( )

Excellent stand alone. Ester is a rukher for in the King's Mews. Ester flys a roc named Zahar and we are with them through their first meeting till they are practiced at killing the fierce manticores that threaten the kingdom. ( )
