New York, 2118. Manhattan is home to a thousand-story supertower, a breathtaking marvel that touches the sky. But amidst high-tech luxury and futuristic glamour, five teenagers are keeping dangerous secrets...
LEDA is haunted by memories of what happened on the worst night of her life. She’ll do anything to make sure the truth stays hidden—even if it means trusting her enemy.
WATT just wants to put everything behind him…until Leda forces him to start hacking again. Will he do what it takes to be free of her for good?
When RYLIN wins a scholarship to an upper-floor school, her life transforms overnight. But being there means seeing the boy whose heart she broke, and who broke hers in return.
AVERY is tormented by her love for the one person in the world she can never have. She’s desperate to be with him… no matter the cost.
And then there’s CALLIOPE, the mysterious, bohemian beauty who arrives in New York, determined to cause a stir. And she knows exactly where to begin.
But unbeknownst to them all, someone is watching their every move, someone with revenge in mind. And in a world of such dazzling heights, just one wrong step can mean a devastating fall.

I wasn’t the biggest fan of The Thousandth Floor but was open to reading the sequel to see how some of the characters I liked again. And once again, I thought it was “meh”. For the second time, we start the book knowing that someone will die at the end. And for the second time, the death is so anti-climatic that I really just didn’t care.
For those who haven’t read my review of The Thousandth Floor, you can find it here. Otherwise, read on to see why I just didn’t get that hooked on this book either.
Why I Didn’t Love It:
So once again, I feel like I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this series gets better in the next book. I surprisingly ended up liking Leda a bit more by the end, and Watt is still a good character, but Rylin and the rest just are doing anything for me. Even the death at the end of this book just seems like a last-ditch attempt to draw interest in reading the third novel in the series, but I didn't really care about the character at all and her death happened so quickly (and really out of no where) that I wasn't really bothered by it. I guess we'll see what the next book holds in store...
FINAL RATING: 3/5
Hi, I'm Alexandra! I love reading (largely YA fiction, but sometimes I'll read "adult" books), playing board games, Nutella, and binge-watching TV shows on Netflix with my husband.
