HIGH ADVENTURE. HIGH FANTASY. HIGH ALTITUDE.

Nima never intended to be a climber, an explorer, or a hero. She never expected to see magical wonders or nightmarish abominations. She was simply a Sherpa trying to save her family, her quest sending her higher and deeper into Everest’s icy grip.

When she falls through a mystical portal, Nima finds herself caught in a magical

A fast-paced, entertaining fantastic adventure in the tradition of Indiana Jones, Tintin, Haggard and Doyle, with considerably less sexism and racism.

A really clever and rather original story that is part Indiana Jones, part alternate history, and part magical fantasy. The setting is familiar, at least for most of us--the Himalaya in the 1950s, just after WWII. But Mount Everest (Qomolungma, or Chomolungma) is more than just the world's highest mountain--it is also a place of magic, a sort of nexus to ... well, no spoilers. But suffice to say that the cast of characters, as well as the creatures, encountered in Under Everest is nothing like w ...more

Amazing story

I enjoyed being on the rope so to speak throughout every chapter. New adventures in each chapter keep you captivated. I loved the central charters from the very beginning and felt a part of their adventures. I hope you will give this wonderful book a place on you reading list.
