Tower to the Heavens is a photographic history of the construction of the Tower of Tiphares that is mentioned in the Battle Angel Alita Epilogue.


The book was written by Koyomi and is scheduled to go on sale five years after Alita turned herself into the Life-Tree to save both Tiphares and the Scrapyard.

Koyomi visited Ketheres Elyion a month before the book's publication, where she encountered Figure Four and found a now senile Desty Nova. Nova lead her and Figure to a giant bulb of the Life-Tree deep inside the trunk where they discovered Alita, who had been regenerated in human form, ending the manga.
