Into the Air Book Review and Giveaway

Like everyone else in the world, Mia Bryn lives in the dark. Buried in an underground compound, her life is spent in brief allotments of florescent light and dwindling food supplies. But when a letter arrives, Mia and her father are invited to embark on a journey that no one else has been allowed to take for over a hundred years. They are asked to leave the ground and travel into the air. But the outside world is more surprising and dangerous than Mia could have ever imagined. To survive, she must trust her instincts, learn about a world she knows nothing about, and accept her destiny.

My thoughts:

I really enjoy dystopian novels, and my eldest loves them too. So I was thrilled to have the opportunity to read this book!

Mia has lived her life underground, but her history is definitely darker than the people around her. Her mother was taken and her sister killed when she was younger, and her father moved her to a different compound. However, her father is given the opportunity to visit the Academy, and Mia pushes to be able to go above ground with him. However, upon their arrival their situation becomes her worst nightmare, and Mia is left to survive on her own.

While Mia is struggling to survive, she's being hunted by a multitude of creatures and guards, because of a secret that even she doesn't know. Can she survive to help change the world?

I really enjoyed this book, although I do think that it's more graphic (and more terrifying) than I would expect for a YA novel.

“Downing’s Into The Air is that fresh take on the YA post-apocalyptic vision we’ve all been waiting for. Mia Bryn is a wonderful character—one who starts out charmingly mortal but soon becomes the heroine we, and her people, need her to be. Can’t wait for the next Mia chapter!”
Bruce McAllister, Author of the Cybils-nominated The Village Sang to the Sea: A Memoir of Magic

“There’s a new star in the Young Adult firmament—A. K. Downing’s series, beginning with Into The Air, is sure to be a reader favorite right up there with The Hunger Games and The 100 trilogy.”
Richard Snodgrass , Author of There’s Something in the Back Yard


“Did you ever feel so lost that you didn’t know if the ground was above your head or below your feet?”
