Synopsis: Three hundred years ago, something terrifying arose and pushed humanity to the brink of extinction. Now, a small remnant – the descendants of the few survivors who were able to escape the massacre below – lives above the clouds, on the top of a Mountain.
When they discover that their water supply is being poisoned Down Below, an expedition, including seventeen year-old girl Icelyn Brathius, must descend and face the monsters, the Threat Below, that wiped out civilization centuries ago.
Icelyn quickly learns that all is not what it seems as she uncovers secrets hundreds of years old and struggles to stay alive in a world where no human is fit to survive.
Review: For the most part I really enjoyed this book. It was a decent dystopian novel and I loved the vast storytelling the book had. The world building was amazingly well done and the character development was as well. The book also well plotted and the pacing was on point.
However, there was a lot of characters and it was hard to keep track of them. There was also a love triangle in the book.
Verdict: It was great!
