The first glimpse of sun may be her last.

When Lilith Gray goes above ground for the first time, she hardly expects to stay there — much less be trapped on the surface with no way home.

Hunted by trackers and threatened by the infected, Lilith is on the run, desperate to return underground. Her only hope for survival lies with a taciturn werewolf with a dark agenda of his ow

I was hesitant to accept a YA book for review, since the genre is not one I tend to enjoy. But I had previously read and thoroughly enjoyed a book by this indie author, so I decided to give it a go.

The basic concept is intriguing. Many post-apocalyptic stories feature humans living in bomb shelters or other similar underground enclosures but not for the reasons put forth in this novel. This unique twist is what I’ve come to expect from Harte’s writing, and it definitely was the part of the story

I've been a fan of A.M. Harte since I read her first book. So of course when she approached me to read her newest book, Above Ground, I happily accepted. I was drawn in by the synopsis and readied myself for an exciting read. The book opens with Lilith and her friend Emma visiting the surface with a one day pass. Their trepidation is palatable, as they wait to see what horrors they might see. Little do they know that a series of events will soon turn their entire lives upside down.

First and fore

This is one of my favorite books! I started reading it when it was just a web serial. When I heard it was going to be extended and published I was so excited, and let me tell you it does not disappoint! I literally had to force myself to put it down at 5am so that I could get a little sleep in before work. I finished it the next time I picked it up. Sometimes I have a hard time finishing books when I get to a certain point. Not the case with this one. I couldn't wait to find out what was going t ...more

Good story composed of three different threads, one for each major character. The bulk of the story follows two which mostly intertwine from start to finish. That thread follows the girl, Lileth, and the werewolf, Silver.

The plot is captivating, though the relationship between girl and beast I found slightly confusing. It's unfortunate since it's the glue that ties the story together. It's no reason to avoid the novel, however, as the author weaves a compelling story of magic, mythology, and tec

I really liked the idea of this book! The only thing I missed was a sort of introduction to the underground world and what Lilith's life is like before she goes above-ground. It really felt like the first few chapters of the book were missing... but the rest was interesting and something quite different than what I was expecting, but in a good way :) Plus, I liked the map in the book! I always like maps in fantasy books. 3.5 stars!

A science fiction story where humans live underground and the mutants, werewolves, vampires etc live on the surface. The story was well thought through but the ending was rather abrupt.
