Gonna miss this drama filled world

Mini Review:

This was a great conclusion to an awesome trilogy. This last book was a little slow in the middle and the ending was more predictable than the first two, but I still really loved the world and all the technology. The drama filled plot was highly entertaining. The writing was also very easy to get immersed in. It almost felt like a real place with real characters. The main characters were all flawed without being unlikable to the point where the story

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The Towering Sky is the third and final instalment of futuristic teen series ‘The Thousandth Floor’. Following in the same vein as the previous books, we see our privileged and beautiful narrators as they navigate the fall out of various secrets finally coming to light, mixed in with a little teen angst and drama.

This instalment is really all about Avery and her relationship with adopted brother Atlas, as well as being the ‘darling

Me siento rara al terminar esta trilogía no logro entender que ya no tendré más de estos personajes... sin duda los extrañare a todos. Creo que fue el libro más profundo de los 3, donde más se tuvo desarrollo... Todos tuvieron el final que merecían? SI. Fue el final esperado? MMMM... cambiaría algunas cosas... pero creo que fue una gran final.

Cielo Infinito es la tercera y última entrega de la serie futurista 'El Piso Mil'. Siguiendo la misma línea que los libros anteriores, vemos a nuestros her

I was satisfied with the ending, it was perfect. But I can’t justify giving this book 5 stars because the book was pretty stretched out, repetitive and boring from the 20% mark to the 75% mark. I also feel like this was an opportunity to develop Brice to the fullest extent, but that opportunity wasn’t used. All I know is that he is sometimes a creep and sometimes a knight in shining armour. I really loved this trilogy, and will definitely be reading anything McGee puts out in the future.

The third and final book in The Thousandth Floor trilogy by Katharine McGee. The characters (Leda, Rylin, Calliope, Watt, and Avery) are all back with an exciting conclusion to the series.

Leda is the most intriguing and complex character in the book. Rylin is my favorite character, but Cord, her boyfriend, is kind of lame. Calliope still seems pointless. Watt is still too smart for his own good. Avery has major drama, and, really, deserves better than Atlas.

This book nicely wraps up the variou

Dos años después de leer "Vértigo", llegó el momento de despedirme de esta trilogía con la lectura de "Cielo infinito", un libro que ha estado a la altura de los dos anteriores y con un final que me ha dejado bastante satisfecho.

Una vez más solo puedo destacar la increíble pluma de Katharine McGee y felicitar a Raúl García Campos por el excelente trabajo que ha hecho como traductor. Ademas, es uno de esos libros que tiene algo que engancha

WOW! I didn’t expect that kind of ending but at the same time I’m happy it happened??

So in this final installment, I think it’s the last? Dunno but it’s bitterswet!, well you see the gang. Not everyone knows of the death that happened at the end in book 2. However, the police are trying to figure out who did it. I had my theories and I was so happy that my #1 suspect was it! I mean, I was still shocked and shit but really happy because my detective skills are getting better!

Actual rating 3.5/5 stars. This is the third and final instalment in The Thousandth Floor trilogy.

Set in the futuristic thousand-floor skyscraper that dominates the Manhattan skyline, this follows all of the drama that comes with the territory of being one of the building's wealthy 'highliers'. The multiple perspectives means an array of stories are continually revolving around the central plot-line and they all converge in a drama-filled and explosive fashion!

Just like the former series instalm

This book was so good! I definitely enjoyed it a lot more than the previous two books in the trilogy. I don't know why, because there was definitely as much drama as before, but I think because the story was finally coming together. Also, this ending, definitely didn't see that one coming, but I'm totally content with it!

Dit was alles wat ik me wensen kon voor dit laatste deel van de trilogie! Samen gelezen met Shannon, Suus en Odette in een hele fijne Buddyread waar we oneindig hebben gespeculeerd en gegild om alle scenes!

Dit boek heeft het allemaal. Onverwachte wendingen, spanning, drama, romantiek. Perfecte afsluiter van deze heerlijke serie!

¿Cómo puede parecerme un libro lineal y encantarme a la vez?
Es el libro que más me ha gustado de la trilogía. Todos los personajes me han encantando, sobre todo Watt (nuevo crush literario aquí). Sus dos últimas decisiones han sido de lo mejor y creo que hace que Leda quiera y sea mejor persona. Rylin me ha encantado desde la primera página del primer libro, a Caliope hasta el final de este no la he soportado, es decir, hasta que no se ha abierto a alguien y he visto como es de verdad no l

I expected a lot more from this book but it did not deliver.

I really enjoyed the first two books but certainly not this one. The story in this one could have ended a lot earlier but it was stretched and dragged out instead. It felt like the characters were forced to separate in the first half of the book and then brought back together. We knew their lives were intertwined to begin with so why force them to ignore that part? Don’t get me wrong I still enjoyed it but it was a little frustrating.

A good final book but not that good to be rated with 5 stars. This book's biggest problems were repetition and lack of drama, the main reason I read this trilogy. It had some good character development but some other characters were not given enough time for the reader to learn about them and discover some depth in them. What actually saved this book was the ending.

This was Avery's book. She really shined in this one and showed us her true worth. She is by no means one of my favorite characters

No sabía por donde iban a ir los tiros ya que el final del segundo libro me descolocó y no sabía por donde iba a seguir la trama. Y la verdad es que me ha parecido todo un acierto. Giros argumentales pero todo de forma coherente y una trama adictiva. Además de un buen final.

AH wat is dit toch een heerlijke wereld en een heerlijke serie! Echt weer zo enorm genoten van alle plotontwikkelingen, al het drama, maar op een glamourmanier. En de toekomst-scifi die er in zit (maar een klein vleugje hoor, laat je niet afschrikken) vind ik echt geweldig goed en sterk én tof gedaan.

Maar toch vond ik dit boek iets minder sterk dan de eerdere twee. Iets maar hoor, maar het voelt dus daardoor niet als een 5* boek. Dit kwam door de opzet van de proloog, daardoor werd ik gedurende

Satisfying conclusion to a really fun series! I wish we got a bit more at the end, it did fell a bit rushed and neatly wrapped up. I definitely recommend this for anyone whos looking for something similar to Gossip Girl! it totally gave me that vibe, and its probably the closest I've coming to reading anything that gave me that same kind of feeling.

I hope if this ever gets adapted to TV, it gets the proper adaption it deserves.

I also wouldn't be mad if she added another, or did a spin-off, just

Uggggghhhhhhhhh.

Listen. NOTHING happens in this book until, let's say, 75% in. Truly. There's a lot of recapping - which, tbh, was helpful because some stuff/people I forgot - and a hell of a lot of thinking. In the second book I had started to like some of the characters and some I still liked but others... nah.

Here's some specific and/or vague thoughts on each section:
