I'm so curious about this futuristic dystopia set in New York 100 years from now. I can't quite get my head around skyscrapers that are 1000 stories tall (I would be too terrified to look out of the windows!) but it's an interesting idea and this series seems like it'll be a fun read.
A thousand-storey tower stretching into the sky. A glittering vision of the future, where anything is possible – if you want it enough.
A hundred years in the future, New York's elite of the super-tower lie, backstab and betray each other to find their place at the top of the world. Everyone wants something… and everyone has something to lose.
As the privileged inhabitants of the upper floors recklessly navigate the successes and pitfalls of the luxury life, forbidden desires are indulged and carefree lives teeter on the brink of catastrophe. Whilst lower-floor workers are tempted by a world – and unexpected romance – dangling just out of reach. And on the thousandth floor is Avery Fuller, the girl genetically designed to be perfect. The girl who seems to have it all – yet is tormented by the one thing she can never have.
So when a young woman falls from the top of the supertower, her death is the culmination of a scandal that has ensnared the top-floor elite and bottom-floor. But who plummeted from the roof? And what dark secrets led to her fall?
Friends will be betrayed and enemies forged as promises are broken. When you’re this high up, there’s nowhere to go but down…

I'm also curious to see what people think of the two different cover options. I used the UK cover above but the videos were produced by the US publisher and the covers are very different. Let's look at them next to each other:
UK Cover vs US Cover
Which do you prefer? I have to say I prefer the US cover this time around, I love the building and it immediately shouts New York glitz and glamour to me. The UK cover is more generic and could be any city in the world and it doesn't particularly grab my attention or make me want to read it. Which is your favourite? Have you read the series? Let me know how quickly I need to bump it up my to read mountain in the comments!
