The Other Side of the Sky

Young Adult Science Fiction, Fantasy, Romance, Adventure

Summary: North is a prince living on a city that floats in the air. In his quest to find a way to keep his city from sinking, he ends up crashing to the ground where he is found by Nimh. She was chosen as a deity when she was a child and things are getting worse on the ground but she doesn’t know how to solve things. But North might be the key Nimh needs.

Likes: I didn’t really know where this was going and I enjoyed that immensely. I also liked Nimh and North right away. They have a lot in common (such as having responsibility shoved on them early) and their chemistry is solid right away. It also makes multiple situations complicated as events progress. The worldbuilding is also interesting and features the most blending of science fiction and fantasy elements. I like North and Nimh’s discussions about their worlds.

Dislikes: That ending is killing me… I want the next book so I can find out if this character is dead or not.

Overall I knew I had to give this book a try because I’ve really gotten into books that Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner have written (I’ve liked what she’s written with Jay Kristoff too) and I’m glad I did.
