If you’re looking for a young adult novel and you love post-apocalyptic stories, Into The Air by J.K Downing is the book for you!
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.
“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
My Thoughts On Into The Air By A. K. Downing
Oooh I like this Into The Air! At first I felt like it was “just another post apocalyptic story”. I was wrong. If you have a hard time getting into the story just keep reading. It gets really good and we see Mia Bryn deal with things no 17 year old should have to.
Without giving any spoilers we see that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. And the “air” isn’t always better. Life outside the compound isn’t all sunshine and roses and this girl learns that fairly quickly. There are characters you’ll love and some you’ll absolutely hate. There are twists and turns and turmoil and heartache and I can’t wait to read more. I really hope there is more to this story and that any sequels will delve into the story even more. I’d love to see this as a movie series!!!
