The Dazzling heights blew me away! It was even better than the first book and that is kind of impossible because the first book was marvelous. I cannot describe how much I enjoyed this book. Full of teenage drama, rich kids doing bad things, dark secrets, all of it I absolutely loved. The Dazzling heights was my most anticipated release of 2017 and oh, it surpassed all my expectations.
Keeping readers on the edge at all times, huge and unexpected twists all of it was just so good. It was sci-fiction combined with drama, all of it an extraordinary combination that floored me. Impeccable plot, strong character description and amazing writing, this book was perfect! It had it all, love, drama, an interesting story and OH MY GOD an absolutely nerve-racking ending. I cannot wait to read the next book.
Something that sets apart this book and makes it so unique is the captivating characters and their own point of views and the way all their lives entwine and the sudden change in the story and dangerous cliff hangers. A beautifully written and put together story that engrosses its readers, this book was almost impossible to put down. I read for hours at a stretch and because I have horrible attention span, it was surprising. I never normally am able to read a book for long, oh but this one I read and read and read!
I honestly thought that all the characters were very intriguing and loved how each of them was described and portrayed but my favourite, I have to say was Watt. Watt’s a computer genius who has an illegal quant and he’s trying to get away from Leda, who is forcing him to hack for her and along the way somehow I start to love Watt and his sarcasm and wit! He just is amazing ❤
I have never been more hooked on to any book ever. It was incredible and im really running out of adjectives to describe The Dazzling Heights. Do yourself a favour and go read this series right away, you will not regret it. A huge thanks to Harpercollins India for a review copy!
