  • Could not put this book down! More please!!

    If I could give BENEATH THE FALLEN CITY six stars, I would. Once I started reading, I could not put this book down. From the first page, as Kayla crashes through the floor of the building she was exploring, I felt like I was right there with her. The scenes, as described by this author, had me actually feeling like I was right there amongst the dust and debris and ancient artifacts. Oh! And the characters! I loved Kayla with her snarky, totally capable, quick tempered, tough-girl image, and yet so fully developed as a character, the reader was able to see the soft, vulnerable side of her as well. And Carl. OMG! Just reading about this guy had my heart thumping in overtime. Then there is Alec. Wow! What more could a gal ask for? Not generally a fan of love triangles, but this one is done so well that I am truly intrigued and can’t wait to read the next two books in this series. About the story… In this post-apocalyptic world, the elite (or those who were able to afford the price) live in the gleaming white towers built by OmniLab. These people have grown up in a world where life is easy and food and water and other commodities are readily accessible. Those not able to afford the price of residency are forced to be scavengers on the surface and live in camps where conditions are harsh. Kayla is a ruin rat who has learned to survive by finding items in the ruins that can be sold to the various traders, who in turn sell these items to the people in the Omni Towers. When a strange turn of events puts Kayla in the middle of the Omni Towers corruption, sparks fly. Be prepared for lots of action and intrigue. Fascinating story line! Jamie A. Waters is an author to watch. Her ability to create such well-developed characters and pull you into her fascinating world is simply awesome!

  • Loved it

    Ruin rat Kayla is looking to find her most impressive artifact yet to sell to OmniLabs to keep her pals alive. Trader Carl wants her on his team as he thinks she is his ticket to a fancy job with OmniLabs. Carl manages to get Kayla under one year's contract providing her old team is supported while she is gone. In the meantime OmniLabs finds out Kayla is the long lost daughter of one of their founders. Sparks fly as each strives to take advantage of Kayla while Kayla struggles to put together her past history. This is a fascinating twist on the lost being found saga. It's well written and developed with interesting character talents pointing to plot twists in the future. Well worth the read.

  • The sassiness and steam are immediate.

    I should know better than to start a Jamie Waters book on a Sunday when I don't have anything pressing enough to pull me away from her words. I didn't know what to expect from Beneath the Fallen City, I only knew that Jamie's ongoing Dragon Portal series had completely captivated me and I was curious enough to delve into her other works. I did read the prequel, and was curious about the intrigue of the towers, the ruins, the life these so-called "ruin rats" led amid their disdain for those living above. But jumping into Kayla's life as a scavenger and watching as utter chaos unfolded... it was a ride that I definitely didn't see coming. The sassiness and steam are immediate and likely a driving factor in the enthusiasm I felt in continuing through the story... but when the true mystery comes to the surface and the *real* action unfolds.. Man. I cannot wait to see where this goes.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great read

    Kayla's job is to scavenge for artefacts, which she then sells to Traders for credits. She is also very talented in computers and coding. She doesn't have a high opinion of Traders, or the organisation in charge of it all, called OmniLab. After being recruited by a Trader, she discovers thing about her past that she'd forgotten, things that mean big changes for her. There are all sorts of characters in this, some you love, some you hate and some that are just irritating. The dynamic of the world they live in is very interesting, too. I enjoyed reading this, and I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

    Thanks for your feedback!
