Confession Time! I have already read this fabulous book and have moved on to the next installment Defend. Descent, by Kallie Ross is really good guys, so I had to share a little bit with you!
Seventeen year old Ollie Miller is ready to leave all of her hurt feelings behind, but moving on seems impossible while living next door to her ex-best friend, Mateo. When curious earthquakes begin to shake and rip open the foundation of her small town, the ground becomes as unsteady as her feelings for him. When they fall, they fall hard…
Ollie’s disastrous attempt to save Mateo’s brother from falling into a curious chasm results in their descent into a cavernous wonderland. Ollie, Mateo, Jesse, and Alexis search for a way back home, and encounter a mysterious tribe of natives. Gabriel, the next in line to lead his people, is granted permission to guide them to the surface. On their treacherous journey, an overzealous elder threatens all of their lives, because he can’t risk them exposing his people, or the power he wields. The group discovers ancient secrets, unexpected truths, and uncharted feelings. Ollie must find a way out or risk being stuck in the caves forever—or worse, dead.
I stumble to close to the opening, an a strong hand steadies me. It’s Mateo’s.
“Jesse!” His cry stretches across the huge chasm that is opening at the foot of a natural gas drill. With another tremor, I glance back at Mateo. Behind him, Alexis’ blonde bob is bouncing and her shorter legs are just allowing her to catch up. Our slumber party is not going to end with french toast and selfies.
In front of me , the gap continues to grow closer as the violent shaking continues, and I can’t stop fast enough.
No one can save any of us now.
Descent is chalk full of magic, mystery and even a love triangle. It is a fun exciting read and I finished it in one day. Yep, that’s how much I enjoyed it! If you want to learn more about Kallie Ross and her other works, check out her website.
