#BookReview: The Thousand Steps (Elevation #1) by Helen Brain

Synopsis: Ebba has never even seen the sun but now must reunite four sacred amulets to save the earth from destruction.

On the brink of execution, 16 year old Ebba den Eeden is unexpectedly elevated from the bunker deep in Africa's Table Mountain where she has lived all her life, believing--as do all the other teenagers who toil daily to make their food and power the bunker--that the world "Above" is uninhabitable due to a nuclear holocaust.

 Instead, she is heiress to a massive fortune—one that everyone wants to control. 

While dealing with the machinations of the High Priest, his handsome son Hal, and the rules and regulations of a society and religion she doesn't understand, she must also try and save her three friends, still stuck in the bunker and facing execution any day.

My Review: Sadly this one just didn't work out for me.  I found the start of it very confusing and the story just didn't grab me. I was actually really excited to check this one out as science fiction/fantasy are some of my favorite stories. But sadly that wasn't the case with this one.  I was thinking about just going ahead and finishing it since it was only 240 pages long but as I went through the pages it just got worse from there and I just had to put it down.  

Overall, this book lacked character and story development and the plot was very weak.  At times it was very confusing on what was going on and about 20% in I just had to put it down.
