Waiting on Wednesday: ‘The Dazzling Heights’ by Katharine McGee

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly series hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases we can’t wait to get our hands on.

This week’s Waiting on Wednesday pick is the follow up to last year’s super inventive The Thousandth Floor: The Dazzling Heights by Katharine McGee.

Essentially futuristic Gossip Girl, McGee’s series is set in the year 2118 and Manhattan has been replaced with a thousand story skyscraper.

The Dazzling Heights will be released on August 29, 2017 and we can barely contain our excitement.

Who will survive the sequel, and what will be left of them?

New York, 2118. Manhattan is home to a thousand-story supertower, a breathtaking marvel that touches the sky. But amidst high-tech luxury and futuristic glamour, five teenagers are keeping dangerous secrets…

LEDA is haunted by memories of what happened on the worst night of her life. She’ll do anything to make sure the truth stays hidden—even if it means trusting her enemy.

WATT just wants to put everything behind him…until Leda forces him to start hacking again. Will he do what it takes to be free of her for good?

When RYLIN wins a scholarship to an upper-floor school, her life transforms overnight. But being there means seeing the boy whose heart she broke, and who broke hers in return.

AVERY is tormented by her love for the one person in the world she can never have. She’s desperate to be with him… no matter the cost.

And then there’s CALLIOPE, the mysterious, bohemian beauty who arrives in New York, determined to cause a stir. And she knows exactly where to begin.

But unbeknownst to them all, someone is watching their every move, someone with revenge in mind. And in a world of such dazzling heights, just one wrong step can mean a devastating fall.

The sumptuous second book in the bestselling Thousandth Floor series has all the drama, romance and hidden secrets that landed the first book in this series at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list.

  1. I really need to read The Thousandth Floor! I’ve had it for a while, and as a slightly obsessed Gossip Girl fan, I hear that I will absolutely adore it. Maybe I’ll keep holding off and read it right before this one gets released, that way I don’t have to wait for too long to continue the story!

    • If you enjoy Gossip Girl you’ll definitely like The Thousandth Floor! The science fiction touches are fun but not too crazy, with the real focus being on the teen drama.
