City of the Falling Sky
When fourteen year old Seckry Sevenstars is forced out of his village by the greedy Endrin Corporation and relocated to the daunting metropolis of Skyfall City, he harbours resentment for the company and vows to get them back one day for taking away his home, his school and his friends.
Fortunately, the marvels of the city do a good job in distracting Seckry from his anger and homesickness, and it isn’t long before he’s competing at Friction (the city’s most popular multiplayer video game,) slurping awe-inspiring multicoloured milkshakes, and getting butterflies on his first date.
Then, when a mysterious email asks Seckry to break into the headquarters of the Endrin Corporation and steal a container full of worms for a hefty sum of money, his anger resurfaces, and he can’t resist the revenge he promised himself.
Alone at night, Seckry creeps through the sewers whilst wondering what experiments Endrin might be doing on the worms, and emerges into the silent complex. But the worms aren’t the only thing that he finds. Staring at him through the darkness, with wide, innocent eyes, is something that makes Seckry’s heart almost stop.
She’s shaking, petrified, and has no recollection of who she is or what she’s doing there.
Floodlights bleach the area and Seckry has no choice but to grab a hold of the girl and escape with her.
Suddenly the question of what Endrin were doing with a few worms becomes the last thing on Seckry’s mind. What were Endrin doing with a human?
Some reviews for City of the Falling Sky
“Absolutely amazing! I could not put it down for one second, and by the end of it I was left speechless. The more you read, the more you get drawn into this beautiful world he has created. A truly wonderful book, like I have never read before, and the characters are so great, you easily get attached to them. Cannot wait for the sequel!” Ema Sava, 15
“City of the falling Sky is easily the best book I’ve ever read, to me better than the Harry Potters. I loved every minute of it. It was so exciting how everything happened and all came into place at the end. It was just so brilliant I could not put it down. I also love Friction, and just thinking about it makes me want to play it so badly. Again, the best book I’ve ever read and I hope there are many more to come.” Jacob Foley, 13
“What an amazing book! Let’s hope the second one is just as good. I’d give it five stars!” Rhys Yip, 12
