New York City as you’ve never seen it before. A thousand-story tower stretching into the sky. A glittering vision of the future, where anything is possible—if you want it enough.
Welcome to Manhattan, 2118.
A hundred years in the future, New York is a city of innovation and dreams. But people never change: everyone here wants something…and everyone has something to lose.
Leda Cole’s flawless exterior belies a secret addiction—to a drug she never should have tried and a boy she never should have touched.
Eris Dodd-Radson’s beautiful, carefree life falls to pieces when a heartbreaking betrayal tears her family apart.
Rylin Myers’s job on one of the highest floors sweeps her into a world—and a romance—she never imagined…but will her new life cost Rylin her old one?
Watt Bakradi is a tech genius with a secret: he knows everything about everyone. But when he’s hired to spy by an upper-floor girl, he finds himself caught up in a complicated web of lies.
And living above everyone else on the thousandth floor is Avery Fuller, the girl genetically designed to be perfect. The girl who seems to have it all—yet is tormented by the one thing she can never have.
Debut author Katharine McGee has created a breathtakingly original series filled with high-tech luxury and futuristic glamour, where the impossible feels just within reach. But in this world, the higher you go, the farther there is to fall….
Let me just tell you that I am literally shocked after reading this book. It was jaw-dropping at the ways that Katherine McGee created this amazing world set in 2118 with a thousand floor tower as the setting. I flew through this book so fast because the plot and characters were captivating. With its 5 point of views and the way it was written it felt like it was a futuristic gossip girl.
Each character is very different, but they bring something very important to the entire story. They come from different floors. The higher you are the wealthier. This fantastic world building that McGee created was very high-tech, hover cars and eye scans as well as sending pings or texts. The world is very interesting as you still see that drugs are still very common. It starts off with a girl falling off the highest floor, we don't know who but as the story goes back 2 months later we see what really happened.
The Thousandth Floor has love, betrayal, secrets and the typical drama that will leave your shocked right to the very end. When I first started the book it was a little slow getting to know what Avery, Leda, Rylin, Eris and Watt and their personalities you will see the tangle of mistrust between the characters. I hated Leda immediately! While Avery is her best friend and is beautiful and genetically designed to be perfect. She lives on the highest floor with her parents and her brother Atlas. She is tormented by the only thing she could never have - you will have to read this book to find out!
Overall, this book was drama-crazy good and an excellent amount of diversity. If you enjoy a good mystery with backstabbing, romance and so much more, The Thousandth Floor is the book to read right now. Looking forward to what the next book will bring!
