The reason why I bought this book was that I am a great SF and Fantasy fan. I will not go into all the typos, grammar and at times odd sentence structure as I feel most people have done so already. English is not my first language but even I stumbled a lot.
However I thought the concept of the story itself was brilliant, engaging and well paced even so there were a lot of lengthy fighting scenes.
This book could become an excellent SF series if worked out and on a little bit more. I felt there were too many loose ends and the characters (which are actually very likeable) would benefit from more depth and detail as they were very onedimensional. The ending of the book left me disappointed as it left a lot of my questions unanswered.
It would have been interesting to know how this world with this city of two layers came about. Why could people from down below don't go anywhere else? What were the borders of the city 'down below' and 'up'? What is the down below?
I know if this book would be rewritten in a more detailed and descriptive way I definately would read it again as I just think that the concept of the book is brilliant.
Because of the lack of depth, detail and a lot of unanswered questions only 3 stars.

As some other reviewers have said there are some errors with even the current edition however it in no way detracted from my enjoyment of this book.

I found the read to be fast and furious even staying up late to read it at times.

I wanted to know more about the characters and really wanted to know about the ordinary citizens my only criticism would be that the character of Tanya was so irritating I wanted her to die.

Really looking forward to reading the second book.

An author to watch if this is the quality of his writing.

This could have done with a good proof read as there are quite a lot of "typos" however as I persevered with it I no longer noticed and got involved with the story. It is a theme that has been explored by many writers civilisation collapsed, in this case with no explanation, and two main factions survived one" new haven" seems to be fairly advanced and the others "old haven" are seen as the rebels but these are also divided into factions. The whole story is set against the battle between the two havens. It is written from a number of different perspectives which slowly come together. I enjoyed the book but felt the ending was too abrupt and although this left me wanting to read any sequel, I prefer stories to be more stand alone. I would have given 4* but dropped it to 3* due to the typos etc.

I am a keen Sci-Fi reader and have read most of the "classics" and top 100 list books as well as many that aren't. I mention this only to set the context for this review. In Brief, this book has a simple but effective story line and is well written. The book falls into the post-apocalyptical genre and is in my humble view a credible study on society and human nature. The book deserves support and falls firmly into the categories of "worth buying" and "I hope the author continues to publish".

The fact that this book was free, is both amazing and sad, amazing because the author deserves paying and sad because it highlights how difficult is must be for anyone to earn a living from e-books. There are many popular publishing house books for sale in e-format which are frankly garbage and their prices, often the same as hard copy, excessive. That fact that good quality books, like this, are made available free but still struggle to gain a profile and publicity highlights the needs for the publishing industry to get its act together.

When I first began reading this book, I didn't expect a novel quite as dark as this. It has sort of haunting imagery that really stuck with me.

The story follows a few people, switching perspectives frequently, but not so much that it's confusing or troublesome. The plot is enthralling and it's hard not to care about the fate of the characters which not only occupy Old Haven (the city below) but those few you become attached to in New Haven (the city above).

It is actually rather difficult to sum up this book in a few lines. The Citizens, on the surface city of New Haven, think they have a perfect life but as an outsider you realize it's all smoke and mirrors. There is no freedom, they just live in a pretty cage. For those that live underneath, they make their own choices and have absolute control over their decisions, but the choices they have are rather meager. They face starvation and capture at every turn. Their world is complicated and dangerous and you cannot help but hope for them to see the sun again, no matter the cost.

The ending is an exciting but absolutely heartbreaking twist that has left me eagerly awaiting the sequel.

There are a number of typing errors and mistakes in the Kindle version of this book, and whilst this is not ideal, it didn't detract from my enjoyment and reading of the book so I am not going to mark the book down on that basis; it was not really the author's fault.

The plot behind this book is fantastic. The story is well-paced, with plenty of action, yet the author also displays an ability to slow down to allow the reader to catch breath without making me feel like i'm going to fall asleep completely or that i'm being fed some nonsense to 'fill out' the story line.

I felt that the book was going to be very predictable in places, but it really was not. There are plenty of interesting details and mysteries which were resolved only near the end of the book. The weakest part of the book in my opinion was the very end. I won't go into detail here because I don't want to spoil the experience for others, needless to say that the end has been left very open for a sequel but seemed to lack the real 'punch' that it could have had given the strong nature of the rest of the book. One other thing which bothered me slightly is that i kept finding my mind drifting, thinking about what is at the 'edge' of haven since they can't possibly have built it 'up there' across the whole world , it is only one city, and this made me continually wonder why those left down below didn't try to escape to another city. I count it as a good thing that my mind wandered as it means the story made me stop and think.

The characters are strong and believable in all instances, with well developed personalities portrayed clearly in the plot which leave you in no doubt what each person is really like if you were to stand in front of them and speak to them yourself.
