If you haven’t started reading The Cerulean yet, do yourself a favor and dive in. This tale of two worlds, one idyllic and magical, the other more brutal beneath it, has so many layers and twists, and is as fast-paced and thrilling as it is glitteringly fantastic.
In The Cerulean, Sera is a girl in the City Above the Sky, a blissful, fully female world anchored to a planet beyond. It seems perfect. Of course, we’ve learned through all of our favorite books that nothing is as it ever appears. And when Sera is sacrificed to the planet below to break her city’s tether, she must channel the magic within herself to survive. See what we mean? While Sera straddles her worlds which decidedly aren’t the utopias they might seem, reading The Cerulean is.
So, inspired, we decided to take you to utopias all our own! Use the utopia name generator below to find your dream city.

About The Cerulean
“We are the Cerulean. Our blood is magic.”
Sera Lighthaven has always felt as if she didn’t quite belong among her people, the Cerulean, who live in the City Above the Sky. She is curious about everything—especially the planet that her City is magically tethered to—and can’t stop questioning things. Sera has always longed for the day when the tether will finally break and the Cerulean can move to a new planet.
But when Sera is chosen as the sacrifice to break the tether, she feels betrayed by everything in which she’d been taught to trust. In order to save her City, Sera must end her own life.
But something goes wrong, and Sera survives, ending up on the planet below in a country called Kaolin. Sera has heard tales about the dangerous humans who live here, and she quickly learns that these dangers were not just stories.
Meanwhile, back in the City, all is not what it seems, and the life of every Cerulean may be in danger if Sera is not able to find a way home.
