Summary
"Welcome to a world of wind and bone, songs and silence, betrayal and courage. Kirit Densira cannot wait to pass her wingtest and begin flying as a trader by her mother's side, being in service to her beloved home tower and exploring the skies beyond. When Kirit inadvertently breaks Tower Law, the city's secretive governing body, the Singers, demand that she become one of them instead. In an attempt to save her family from greater censure, Kirit must give up her dreams to throw herself into the dangerous training at the Spire, the tallest, most forbidding tower, deep at the heart of the City. As she grows in knowledge and power, she starts to uncover the depths of Spire secrets. Kirit begins to doubt her world and its unassailable Laws, setting in motion a chain of events that will lead to a haunting choice, and may well change the city forever--if it isn't destroyed outright"--

Summary
All Kirit Densira wants is to pass her wingtest, strap on her flying gear, and join her mother as a trader, ferrying much-needed supplies between towers made of living bone while eluding the predatory skymouths that snatch citizens from the air. When Kirit breaks Tower Law by deterring a skymouth attack, the enigmatic Singers -- who govern the city from within the Spire -- present her with an agonizing choice: sacrifice her life's dream in order to join their ranks or receive a sentence of death. Extensive world-building, layers of political intrigue, and a poignant coming-of-age story make this 1st book in a projected series a must-read. -- Description by Gillian Speace
