Synopsis: Welcome to Manhattan, 2118. A thousand-storey tower stretching into the sky. A glittering vision of the future, where anything is possible – if you want it enough. A hundred years in the future, New York’s elite of the super-tower lie, backstab and betray each other to find their place at the top of the world. Everyone wants something… and everyone has something to lose.
As the privileged inhabitants of the upper floors recklessly navigate the successes and pitfalls of the luxury life, forbidden desires are indulged and carefree lives teeter on the brink of catastrophe. Whilst lower-floor workers are tempted by a world – and unexpected romance – dangling just out of reach. And on the thousandth floor is Avery Fuller, the girl genetically designed to be perfect. The girl who seems to have it all – yet is tormented by the one thing she can never have.
So when a young woman falls from the top of the supertower, her death is the culmination of a scandal that has ensnared the top-floor elite and bottom-floor. But who plummeted from the roof? And what dark secrets led to her fall?
Showing that not everything is perfect in life when you’re one of the popular kids, this book will show you that it’s all fun and games until one of you falls…
Straight from the opening chapter, I was hooked by this book. The first chapter was so powerful and really set the tone for the entire book. I was already met with tonnes of questions swirling around my mind, that instantly made me want to carry on reading.
The use of split POV’s worked brilliantly, as it allowed you to get the story in so much depth and from so many perspectives, there wasn’t one part that felt out of place. Each of the characters worked so well together, and I loved the diversity overall.
The world building however, was one of the most stand out parts of the entire book. It was outstanding, and the use of class divides was such a brilliant addition. It really allowed you to see just how much difference there is depending on which floor you live on. It put the overall story into so much perspective and I loved how the narrative looped overall from the start of the book to the end.
It was a brilliantly written book, with a whole host of characters that not only worked perfectly together, but also as individuals. I’m so excited to read the sequel and see where the next part takes us.
