Review: The Dazzling Heights by Katharine McGee

Title: The Dazzling Heights (The Thousandth Floor #2)
Author: Katharine McGee
Rating: ★★★
Summary: New York City, 2118. Leda is haunted by memories of what happened on the worst night of her life. Watt just wants to put everything behind him…until Leda forces him to start hacking again. Rylin wins a scholarship to an upper-floor school, but being there also 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. 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.


After feeling kind of so-so about The Thousandth Floor, I still put this book immediately on my TBR list once I realized it was being published. (Because apparently I have a weakness for rich teens getting in trouble? Idk.) The Dazzling Heights is a solid expansion of McGee’s series and just as engrossing as its predecessor – we get to follow the same set of characters but there’s even more drama and heartbreak in a gorgeous, lush setting. (And, let me tell you, I am here. for. it. I didn’t so much as read this book as inhale it.) While not everything gets wrapped up from the first book, enough does to leave readers satisfied – while also leaving room for new plots and characters to have you biting your nails in anticipation.

Can The Towering Sky come out now please??
