London Shah creates an immersive, underwater world that feels real, and imminent, right from the start of the book. I was afraid this would be another mediocre SFF read but I was wrong, and extremely pleased. The characters have a real depth to them and a goal you can sympathize with. I am looking forward to reading the second book in this series one day.

I‘ve been remiss in posting about The Light at the Bottom of the World. Loved this book! London Shah has created something special with this story. The setting is great, the plot is well-constructed, and the characters are authentic. The subject matter is timely, and while Shah gets a little heavy-handed with it, I think she balances it well. There‘s also a cliffhanger at the end that feels unnecessary, but it‘s an obvious setup for the next book.

Nute I really like the title. The pull of the story starts there for me! 3w
BillBlume @Nute I enjoyed the book a lot. Shah really won me over as a reader with that book. If you read it, I hope you‘ll enjoy it, too. 3w

Loving the buildup to the race and the character of Leyla. London Shah has done an excellent job with The Light at the Bottom of the World, introducing this submerged world and all its many dangers and stakes. Just a really well done book, so far. She also scored points with me by sneaking in a reference to London by its older name of Londinium.

The world has flooded and London now lies beneath the sea. Our MC Leyla McQueen is a submersible racer whose father has been taken by the Blackwatch. Leyla sets out to find and rescue him. Problem is, in doing so she's stumbled upon a massive state secret which threatens to upend her entire world. Battling human engineered Anthropoids, government thugs, and the dark abyss of the ocean itself, Leyla has quite the road ahead. Fun new YA series.

Leyla lives in the depths of the ocean: London. After rising sea levels flooded the Earth, humanity was forced to adapt. Submersible racing and Anthropoid attacks are all Leyla has ever known. But as she searches for answers about her father--arrested on false charges--she begins to realize the government has been lying to them about almost everything. A bit predictable at times, but a fun, imaginative YA sci-fi novel.

4 stars / ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Okay so I was expecting the submarine race to be a lot more of this book but it's done like in the first 1/3. I didn't realize how much government conspiracy was going to be in this. Lots of elements that I enjoy. The mc was really likable and strong and not a stupid damsel. I loved that the conflict with the world pulls in some things from climate change, the discussion about mental health and that its own voices.

This cover intrigues me enough to want to read this book. London underwater??? Has it sank? Is this a mirror world? I want to know. I do wish the title was not so squished and it was easier to read from a distance. or from a small image (like your phone).

Out October 28
