Overview

A former friend has betrayed the Raksura and their groundling companions, and now the survivors must race across the Three Worlds to rescue their kidnapped family members. When Moon and Stone are sent ahead to scout, they quickly encounter an unexpected and potentially deadly ally, and decide to disobey the queens and continue the search alone. Following in a wind-ship, Jade and Malachite make an unlikely alliance of their own, until word reaches them that the Fell are massing for an attack on the Reaches, and that forces of the powerful Empire of Kish are turning against the Raksura and their groundling comrades.

But there may be no time to stage a rescue, as the kidnapped Raksura discover that their captors are heading toward a mysterious destination with a stolen magical artifact that will cause more devastation for the Reaches than anything the lethal Fell can imagine. To stop them, the Raksura will have to take the ultimate risk and follow them into forbidden territory.

The Harbors of the Sun, from celebrated fantasy author Martha Wells, is the thrilling follow-up toThe Edge of Worlds, and the conclusion of a new Three Worlds duology of strange lands, uncanny beings, dead cities, and ancient danger.

The New York Times

“An imaginative world of engaging characters . . . the dramatic battles, tough decisions, and character dynamics shine through.”
Publishers Weekly

"Far from mindless sock-em action, The Edge of Worlds provide conflicts with stakes, with choices . . . I am going to be impatiently awaiting the resolution of the cliffhanger in the next volume."
—The Skiffy and Fanty Show

“This novel is an irresistible tour-de-force of excellent storytelling and fine characterization . . . . I consider The Edge of Worlds to be one of the most addictive and entertaining fantasy novels of the year.”
Rising Shadow

"That rarity—a completely unique and stunning fantasy world."
—Hugo Award-winning author Elizabeth Bear

Praise for Martha Wells and the Books of the Raksura:

“Using its alien protagonist to explore the politics of gender and belonging, this is a fascinating read for SF readers looking for something out of the ordinary.”
Publisher's Weekly(starred review)

The Cloud Roads has wildly original world-building, diverse and engaging characters, and a thrilling adventure plot. It’s that rarest of fantasies: fresh and surprising, with a story that doesn’t go where ten thousand others have gone before. I can’t wait for my next chance to visit the Three Worlds!”
—N. K. Jemisin, author of The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms

“The vivid world-building and nonstop action really serve as a backdrop for the heart of the novel—the universal human themes of loneliness, loss, and the powerful drive to find somewhere to belong.”
—Sharon Shinn, author of Troubled Waters

“Martha Wells' Raksura books are dense, and complex, with truly amazing world building, and non-human characters who are quite genuinely alien, yet still comprehensible and sympathetic.”
—Kelly McCullough, author of the WebMage series and the Fallen Blade novels

“This is rigorous fantasy without the trappings of European medievalism. And most of all, it's riveting storytelling.”
—Steven Gould, author of Jumper and 7th Sigma

“Genre fans looking for something different will find this is just what they needed.”
School Library Journal Blog

“With these books Wells is writing at the top of her game, and given their breadth, originality, complexity, this series is showing indications it could become one of the landmark series of the genre.”
Adventures Fantastic

“Martha Wells writes fantasy the way it was meant to be—poignant, evocative, and astonishing. Prepare to be captivated 'til the sun comes up.”
—Kameron Hurley, author of The Mirror Empire and God's War

“This is the type of Fantasy series I absolutely love—and highly recommend as a worthwhile series to read and fall in love with.”
