Description

A gorgeous urban fantasy about dangers outside and in.

"Above pulls off that rare trick of being convincing and utterly magical at the same time."-Emma Donoghue, NYT bestselling author of ROOM.

"Leah Bobet's ABOVE is that rarest of creatures, combining the outspoken honesty of a good first novel with the craft of a seasoned professional."-Elizabeth Bear, Hugo Award-winning author of DUST

Matthew has loved Ariel from the moment he found her in the tunnels, her bee's wings falling away. They live in Safe, an underground refuge for those fleeing the harsh city Above - like Whisper, who speaks to ghosts, and Jack Flash, who can shoot lightning from his fingers.

But one terrifying night, an old enemy invades Safe with an army of shadows, and only Matthew, Ariel, and a few friends escape Above. As Matthew unravels the mystery of the shadows' takeover, he realizes he must find a way to remake his home - not just for himself, but for Ariel, who needs him more than ever before.

ABOVE marks the debut of an extraordinary new voice.
