EBOOK or EPUB (The Other Side of the Sky) Æ Amie Kaufman
Is supposed to be in love with his best riends but once he s Below he barely thinks of them and really uickly gets this crush on Nimh so was a little disappointed And the villain just didn t seem scary to me because she was pitched as crazyOverall it s honestly a thick and ascinating tome with intricate world building and layers of prophecy and entangled magic There are some great twists aching loneliness in the characters and desperation to be known and understand or who you are not who you were told you should be So I don t know why I m surprised by how much I liked this because I reuested it solely
As A Result Of The Author Names a result of the author names knowing or caring about what the plot would be but oh wow did I really really like this Also yes I went in to this totally unaware of the summary even after I was approved or the ARC no one is surprisedThis is nothing like either of the authors work before as solo writers or partners and I actually When Dads Don't Grow Up found everything about the story in general to be so interesting and uniue There is a definite worlds divideeeling about THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SKY both in current day living and mythology as well as belief We spend time in one world than the other but knowing how this ended I m sure we ll get a deeper look at the opposite in book two and I can t wait Miles from Kara for that But the world of the Below was so rich so interesting such aascinating blend of Pee Wee Scouts treasury (Pee Wee Scouts, faith and magic whereas the world Above we know is the complete opposite Just like our protagonistsI know there s always a dialogue regarding YAeeling too YA and adults who read YA getting some criticism or picking up those books and then being disappointed by them because of their target audience But my rebuttal is always that there are ways to write or an audience while still satisfying those outside of it Or just writing so well that it trancends age groups That s what some authors can do well and others can t and generally that s where my criticisms come rom Sure you can still write well but nonetheless have characters that read too young or you or High Heat find themselves in situations that adult readers can berustrated by That s still valid I m sure I m guilty of it But These authors I doubt I ll ever have a problem with them and I m so happy after all these years they are still writing YA Though hey if they dropped an adult title I d be irst in lineBut that tangent has nothing to do with this story or why you should read it It doesn t go into detail about the complexities of the world the characters how things connect or how they circumvent a path you think you re on and surprise you with something else This story
Does All That And Allall that and all immersing you into a world I wasn t really expecting to love so muchIf this book isn t already on your radar it absolutely should be I received an ARC rom Edelweiss and the publisher thank you in exchange or an honest review This review can also be ound at A Take From Two Cities I received this complimentary ARC rom the publisher in exchange or an honest revie.

Amie Kaufman À 1 REVIEWContrasts culture clashes and secrets It has such a ascinating mix of technology and magic I thought it was sci i at Lots of Hearts first but I think it s just epicantasy with a city in the sky and a city down below and neither acknowledging the other exists Until a boy crashes his plane below and inds this whole other world on the brink of destruction and a goddess with missing magical powers trying to save them allI really loved Kaufman and Spooner s irst trilogy These Broken Stars so I was excited Why Diets Make Us Fat: The Unintended Consequences of Our Obsession with Weight Loss for this new seriesrom them It gave me tons of TBS Vibes Too Survival On An Unknown Planet Lots Of vibes too survival on an unknown planet lots of creatures lurking in the jungles and super intricate world building I definitely think the Don't Hex with Texas focus in this book was world building characters I did like the characters but the world was so vast andascinating There s deadly mist that can murder you or bless you with magic powers Steel can stop magic There are plane gliders and engines that suspend whole cities thousands of metres up in the air There are living deities vs calculating kings Prophecies and destinies IF you choose to believe themThe book is mostly
