4.0 out of 5 stars The style is beautiful and vibrantly brilliant., April 2, 2012
This review is from: Above (Hardcover)
In Above, Leah Bobet describes a world where imprisoned monsters with extraordinary powers escape and find sanctuary within our sewer system. The underworld is called "Safe" where Matthew the Teller was born. He is assigned to collect the history of Safe so future generations will have knowledge of their home. In his course of gathering tales, Matthew finds himself exiled with a group of refugees from Safe and now he must help them return to their home.

The writing is superb that looking through the eyes of Matthew that this outrageous underworld seemed to come alive and you start to believe that Safe is an actual place. The style is beautiful and vibrantly brilliant. Bobet has a way of turning words into life.

The relationships between the characters felt real. Ariel, the winged girl that Matthew has rescued is the center piece of the story. She is a girl with a very disturbing past and Matthew slowly learns how to comfort her. This urban fantasy has a lot to offer. From heartaches, pain, and a grand adventure, it surely can't be missed.
