Welcome to The Friday 56 hosted by Freda’s Voice.


This is a really fun meme!

The only rules are to grab a book (any book), turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader and find a sentence or a few (no spoilers) that grabs you and post it.

Then go over to Freda’s Voice and leave your link so we can visit your 56!

My 56 for this week is from

Sunborn Rising

Beneath The Fall

by Aaron Safronoff



Genre: Fantasy

My 56 from the paperback.

Barra had never met Doctor Fenroar but she could tell he was old; they were deeper into the Nest than she’d ever gone. There were no other bups in sight, no one even close to her age.


Read on if you want to know more.


On a distant world of forests floating on an ocean around a star, a blight threatens to plunge all life into darkness.
But three friends seek the light.
Together, they will Fall and be lost.
And at the very Root of darkness, they will find themselves.
But will it be enough to help them find their way home?

The World of Cerulean
Light and water flow from the ocean into the roots of the Great Trees, up through the boughs, and out over the lush canopies. But the once vibrant treescape has grown dim over generations of arboreal life, and the creatures of the forest have forgotten the light.
Barra, a young, willful Listlespur, finds her late father’s hidden journal, and reads about the old world and the mysterious plague her father believed destroyed it. He wrote that he warned the Elders. He urged them to take action. Those were his last words.
Together with her two best friends, Barra will explore every bark, wood, and leaf of the Great Forest to relight her world and complete her father’s story, even if she has to travel beneath the Fall.



I received this book to review and OMG! You wouldn’t believe how awesome it is. Almost every page has little sketches of fantastical beings on it and every few pages there are these amazing colorful illustrations that jump out at you. It’s going to be such a fun adventure.


Leave your link and I’ll drop by your 56.

Until the next time…
