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

K (pronounced k)
A fast-paced, entertaining fantastic adventure in the tradition of Indiana Jones, Tintin, Haggard and Doyle, with considerably less sexism and racism. The unexpected friendship between the Sherpa girl Nima and American ex-sailor Drew provides the story's rather appealing core, rounded out by breathless hikes across the ice fields and a frankly magical adventure of portals and secret underworlds. The plot does have the rather heavy reliance on coincidence, and the high supporting-character death ...more

The story follows adventures of Sherpa girl Nima and American ex-sailor Drew. They fall through a mystical portal and find themselves caught in a magical war raging beneath Mount Everest.

Despite interesting premise, I struggled with this book. I tried to finish it, but finally DNF-ed it at around 53% of the ebook version. I feel that the plot relies heavily on a coincidence. The secondary characters remain underdeveloped and, truth be told, neither Nima nor Drew felt particularly interesting or

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

Completely original!

Exciting drama unfolds on the slopes of Chomolungma (Everest). Each of the characters has a reason to be putting their lives on the line in such a dangerous environment. Nima and her brother need their guide fees to rescue their father from debt. Drew wants to help Nima and find a mysterious woman he's fallen in love with. Wanda from Warsaw searches for her lost father. Jang dreams of restoring his family's dynasty to power over Nepal. When flashing glimpses of legendary yeti

The short version is that one third into the book I still didn't care about any of the characters or the world they landed in.
The slightly longer version is that I have been avoiding books where the main plot is "Man sets out to save female loved one" because...I am tired of these kinds of stories. Now in this book Nima first sets out to save her father from debt and then to save her brother who was abducted by a Yeti which really should be a good story except...her entire character revolves

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.

Two and a half stars? Maybe two and three quarters? I did more or less like this, but just never quite got into it.
