#BookReview: Below (Broken Sky Chronicles #1) by @jchabotauthor @TurnerPub

Reviewed By: Jessica P. 
Publisher: Turner
Recommended Age: Young Adult 
Genre: Dystopian 
About the Book:

No one but the dead dare venture Below . . .

The first volume in this thrilling trilogy opens on the barren plains of Below, where Hokk and his fox sidekick, Nym, live in exile amid the remnants of our modern age.

Overhead, on the floating islands of Above, Elia is trapped in a life of endless toil and drudgery as a laundress for the Mirrored Palace. To Elia, the islands edges are borders that no one dares cross until the ancient ritual that delivers the dead to Below. But a series of natural disasters rumbling through Above sends Elia s world crashing into Hokk s and she falls Below.

Their journey together will propel them across endless plains and through shattered cities in a centuries-old battle for the very earth and sky around them . . ."

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: Well paced with wonderful characters! 

Do I Recommend this book? Yes if you love fantasies and dystopians and just something different then check this one out. 

Notes and Opinions: The first time I read this book ages ago I fell in love with the writing and the world. This second time around I loved it even better. I forgot how wonderful this world is with its above and below worlds.  The characters came alive on the page and this is still one of the best dystopian/fantaies I have read.  This series does not get the exposure that it should and everyone should read this one.  It wont let you down! This stories has wonderful pacing and the characters are just fabulous and alive.  

This is one story that will keep you on the edge of your seat through most of it.  As we are taken along for a ride with Elia.  

I have to say that even now my favriote character is Nym!  

Go Into This One Knowing: That once you start you wont be able to put it down!
