The sequel to the New York Times bestselling novel The Thousandth Floor

New York, 2118. Manhattan is home to a thousand-story supertower, a breathtaking marvel that touches the sky. But amidst high-tech luxury and futuristic glamour, five teenagers are keeping dangerous secrets…

LEDA is haunted by memories of what happened on the worst night of her life. She’ll do anything to make sure the truth stays hidden—even if it means trusting her enemy.

WATT just wants to put everything behind him…until Leda forces him to start hacking again. Will he do what it takes to be free of her for good?

When RYLIN wins a scholarship to an upper-floor school, her life transforms overnight. But being there means seeing the boy whose heart she broke, and who broke hers in return.

AVERY is tormented by her love for the one person in the world she can never have. She’s desperate to be with him… no matter the cost.

And then there’s CALLIOPE, the mysterious, bohemian beauty who arrives in New York determined to cause a stir. And she knows exactly where to begin.

But unbeknownst to them all, someone is watching their every move, someone with revenge in mind. And in a world of such dazzling heights, just one wrong step can mean a devastating fall.

Perfect for fans of One of Us Is Lying and Big Little Lies, the sumptuous second book in the bestselling Thousandth Floor series has all the drama, romance and hidden secrets that landed the first book in this series at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list!

Katharine McGee is originally from Houston, Texas.

After three years of plotting, outlining, and generally having far more fun than anyone ought to at work, she pit...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing! I enjoyed the first book, but this one was even better! I found it to be a lot more satisfying. Great concept, great writing, wonderful characters. Can’t wait for the third book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Addicing In Short: This book was ADDICTIVE, filled with drama and twists at every turn, set in a futuristic New York that will blow your mind and even after you’ve read all four hundred pages of this book, you will be desperate for more. When I went into The Dazzling Heights, I was under the impression that this book was the second part of a duology, but as I got closer and closer to the ending of this book, I knew that there was no way all the storylines would be tied up by the end of it and so I was SO HAPPY to see that there would be another book, effectively making this a trilogy. I honestly cannot WAIT for 2018 where I get to meet all these characters again. Despite the fact that I LOVED book one, The Thousandth Floor, one of my biggest troubles while I read the book was getting to know and then remembering the varying storylines for each character. When I opened The Dazzling Heights, I did not face that problem. Katharine McGee’s writing managed to pull me from India 2017 to New York 2118, with her cast of characters so seamlessly, I was a little astounded. Where I craved more drama in book one, book two did not STOP with the drama and the twists and character growth AND the vibrant futuristic technology. In short, this book was a truly brilliant masterpiece. THOUGHTS: 1. The Thousandth Floor series has all the right elements – New York City in the FUTURE, a huge thousand floor tower that will make your imagination soar, characters that will remind you of the days you were a Gossip Girl junkie and twists and technology that is unparalleled. 2. I struggled to find a favourite character in this book because they ALL grew on me so much. I loved that we saw a more human side to Avery, both a compassionate and ruthless side to Leda, and the fact that Watt, Rylin, Cord and Nadia grew as characters in general. 3. I LOVED meeting all of the characters again and reading about them and their lives. They seem like such real people, and yet live a century in the future – THAT’S how good this book is. 4. The only thing about this book that I didn’t like was Avery and Atlas’ relationship. I just didn’t feel anything about it. I didn’t feel the chemistry, I didn’t even think they were a good fit for each other, with the exception of the Forbidden Love thing. 5. When we were first introduced to Calliope – the one main new character in this book, I thought I wouldn’t like her because of the undoubted havoc she was going to cause in the lives of my favourite characters. And yet, I was so glad that she too told a major part of the story through her view points, because by the end of the book, I genuinely respected this girl too. 6. I also wish that there had been more about Eris herself. I feel like she was mostly glossed over and hardly emotionally dealt with by all the characters in this book and I wish it had been done better. Despite the fact that I have minor problems with this book, I LOVED IT SO MUCH THAT I READ IT IN JUST. ONE. DAY. (all while my final exams were going on) Katharine McGee’s BRILLIANT world had me spellbound and addicted with its perfect characters, technology and the twists that just keep coming. A series TRULY worth reading

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sequel!!! ack! So good! such a great sequel! there was less drama and scandals and such than in the first one, but there was so much more character stuff that made you change your mind about who you liked and didn't like. That was great. and the ending was so intense because I kept thinking I knew who was going to die but then I thought it was someone else but then it wasn't that person and at one point I even turned to my boyfriend and said: "I DON'T KNOW WHO'S GOING TO DIE!" hahaha. man. it was good. Now I must die waiting for the next one

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real twist from the first book This is just as great as the first book. The twist towards the end really got me. It's such a pageturner and hard to stop reading. I read this in 3 days flat. Amazing book.

Editorial Reviews

“The Thousandth Floor’s dizzying sequel is Gossip Girl set in the year 2118 — only juicier. Throw (in) a cast of criminally hot teenagers, mind-bending tech, and a tantalizing forbidden romance... and you get The Dazzling Heights.”
