Into the Air – A Book Review

Like everyone else in the world, Mia Bryn lives in the dark. Buried in an underground compound, her life is spent in brief allotments of florescent light and dwindling food supplies. But when a letter arrives, Mia and her father are invited to embark on a journey that no one else has been allowed to take for over a hundred years. They are asked to leave the ground and travel into the air. But the outside world is more surprising and dangerous than Mia could have ever imagined. To survive, she must trust her instincts, learn about a world she knows nothing about, and accept her destiny.

“Downing’s Into The Air is that fresh take on the YA post-apocalyptic vision we’ve all been waiting for. Mia Bryn is a wonderful character—one who starts out charmingly mortal but soon becomes the heroine we, and her people, need her to be. Can’t wait for the next Mia chapter!”
Bruce McAllister, Author of the Cybils-nominated The Village Sang to the Sea: A Memoir of Magic

“There’s a new star in the Young Adult firmament—A. K. Downing’s series, beginning with Into The Air, is sure to be a reader favorite right up there with The Hunger Games and The 100 trilogy.”
Richard Snodgrass , Author of There’s Something in the Back Yard

WHAT IF YOU ENTERED A WORLD YOU DIDN’T KNOW
“Did you ever feel so lost that you didn’t know if the ground was above your head or below your feet?”
 

About the author
A. K. Downing is the author of the young adult, adventure novel Into the Air. She grew up in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania and spent her summers exploring the fields, woods and orchards of her grandparents’ farm. She studied graphic design at Kent State University and currently works as a Creative Director. She enjoys history, camping, and walking through fields of tall grass, and feels there is no better way to see the world than from the top of a horse. She currently lives in the woods with her husband, daughter, two cats and five chickens. Into the Air is her first novel.

I have to admit the beginning of Into the Air by A.K. Downing had me wondering why I wanted to read it. My daughter, a high school English teacher, had taught me to love young adult books but I was afraid this one would be something I didn’t like. So wrong! I needed to read into the book to be able to come to embrace and love Mia Bryn.
As I have said many times, a strong female character makes a book for me. Mia is that in this book. She is a strong, stronger than I would have ever been at 17, female character. She handles being taken from the only surroundings she has ever known – the compound – and being thrust into the world, into the air. She may have thought this was what she wanted but she may have thought twice about going into the air if she had seen into her own future.
This book has an amazing ending and Downing has left room for several more books in this series. I, personally, cannot wait to see how the rest of Mia’s life goes.
I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
