Award winning novel, award winning author, award winning illustrations.

"Stunning. Awe-inspiring. Revolutionary… an instant fantasy classic” [BlueInk Review].

Cerulean is on the brink of collapse. The decay wasn’t fast, it wasn’t obvious, but now the world stands on the precipice.

Woven forests floating on an ocean around a star, Cerulean’s 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 his discovery of Cerulean’s brighter past and the mysterious plague he believed has all but destroyed it. He warned the Elders. He urged them to take action. Those were his last words…

Together with her two best friends, Barra will rekindle her father’s legacy and traverse the Great Forest to relight her world, even if she has to travel beneath the Fall.

To fully realize Safronoff’s incredible world building, an amazing team of artists helped visualize the depths and magic of Cerulean through 40 full color pieces of art and over 80 line drawings. This illustrated fantasy novel, Sunborn Rising: Beneath the Fall, is available on Kindle and in Paperback and Hardcover editions. (Note: If reading on an e-ink device, color illustrations will be grayscale).

on Feb 29 2016

"Stunning. Awe-inspiring. Revolutionary. Superlatives can’t aptly describe the immersive experience of reading Aaron Safronoff’s lavishly illustrated fantasy fable for the first time... this mesmeric fusion of Ursula K. Le Guin and James Cameron will entertain readers young and old and leave them wanting more. It’s an instant fantasy classic."
