    About: The Dazzling Heights is a young adult thriller written by Katharine McGee. It will be published on 8/29/17 by HarperCollins, 432 pages. The genres are mystery, young adult thriller, fiction, and dystopian. This book is intended for readers ages 13 and up, grades 8 and up.

    My Experience: I started reading The Dazzling Heights on 8/21/17 and finished it on 8/27/17. This book is a fantastic read! I love that there weren’t any characters purposely doing any drugs this time. I love the intensity of the drama. I like the realistic in how people put on a happy face when inside they feel broken to pieces. The deception are played in many different ways. I like how no matter how closely they keep their secret, that they don’t get away with it, that one way or another, someone will see. It reminds us that our two eyes can’t see everything and that we can only see what’s in front. The world building is glamorous just like the cover of this book.

    This book continues on from The Thousandth Floor with flourish. It reveals what happened in each chapter so if you have read a few books between book 1, you will be able to catch on pretty quickly. This book is also told in the third person point of view, starting with the death of a character from the first book and Mariel’s plan to find justice for that death. Then it introduce a new character Calliope Brown, a con artist. Follow that is Avery Fuller and her forbidden love struggles. Then Watt’s illegal secret, then Rylin and her luck, and finally Leda with her busy life harboring everyone’s secrets or maybe sleeping with one eye open in fear of the unknown. Reading this book is like walking on tightrope because everyone is calculating his/her next move. Watt is planning a confession trap, Avery tries not to get caught, Leda wants to make sure her darkest secret is safe, Rylin wants to win her love back despite everything, and Calliope wants it all for free. A drama of the future where they party under the sea!

    This book has an exciting start. I love the introduction of a con artist into the mix. I also love the forbidden love. I’m filled with adrenaline rush as I read this book. The advanced technology is still there and many of those sounds amazing. I’m looking forward to the future. I like the reminder between rich and poor and the different point of views from both extremes. I like the close calls when Calliope was almost being recognized or when Avery believes her dad was onto her. I really like Nadia, both in book 1 and 2. I still like Leda because she’s changed a lot, yet still very sharp. I like the drama in this book because it’s less drugs and more mind games. The characters are smart and they use their mind to get out of tough situations or to get what they want. It’s exciting reading this book and I highly recommend everyone to read it!

    Pro: forbidden love, con artists, secrets, lies, fast paced, page turner, third person point of view with multiple main characters, action packed, adrenaline rush, cover

    Con: none

    I rate it 5 stars!
