Book Review: Sunborn Rising: Beneath the Fall


Sunborn Rising: Beneath the Fall by Aaron Safronoff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Barra has always been a natural explorer, but finding her dead father’s secret journal may send her on a journey from which she can’t return. Will her fall help her save her tree and everyone in it? Or will the deadly rot that no one seems to understand destroy them all? Can she finish her father’s story, and avert the fate he warned the Elders about? Follow Barra and her two best friends on a journey through the floating treescape of Cerulean as they try to discover the way to fight the rot for good.

Sunborn Rising is a fantasy tale of a society that lives in a tree that, ironically, has forgotten its roots. The imagery and social engineering of the story felt like Fern Gully meets Avatar, and the writing draws you in much the same way. I also loved the illustrations, which really made the characters and setting come alive in a coherent way, and lended a context to the reader’s imagination as the plot unfolds. This book is sure to please the YA set and fantasy connoisseurs alike.
