Three hundred years ago, something arose and pushed humanity to the brink of extinction. Now, a small remnant – the ancestors of the few survivors who were able to escape the massacre below – lives above the clouds, on the top of a mountain. But theres been a change. Their water supply is being poisoned. Someone, or something down below is trying to kill them. Now an expedition, including seventeen year-old girl Icelyn Brathius, must descend and face the monsters that wiped out civilization centuries ago.As Icelyn faces dangers in a world humans are not meant to survive, she learns that not everything is as it seems, and uncovers an ancient revelation, then faces a choice that may change the fate of everyone above and below the clouds. Will Icelyn be strong enough to both survive and bear the terrible secret?Join Icelyn Brathius as she leaves everything she has ever known to journey to the place no one was ever supposed to go."This postapocalyptic YA novel is a fast-paced, fascinating slam dunk of a book. The Threat Below is... a mind-expanding tale of postapocalyptic humanity and truth--and the survival of both."-5 Star Clarion Review"A promising debut that could find success beyond the YA market."-Kirkus Reviews"What "the threat below" truly is, and what Icelyn and Adorane are taught it is, mirrors the intellectual sea change that often occurs when high school students move on to college. The nature of "the threat below" is an outstanding metaphor for that point in life when everything you thought you knew turns out to be wrong. Latshaw has crafted a YA novel and series whose potential, in this first book, seems limitless. Given his educational background, Latshaw may already see the story as a film; the novel certainly lends itself to adaptation for the big screen... a solid, fascinating read that should garner fans fast. The Threat Below is, to be blunt, a slam dunk."-5 Star Clarion Review"Whoa! Can you say epic read? Well, I can, and the title of that read is The Threat Below... I loved this book. Loved. It. Young adult or no, The Threat Below is simply a delightful read for anyone who has an interest in fantasy, action, adventure, dystopian stories or just a unique and inventive piece of fiction."-Readers Favorite 5 Star Review"...Features dangerous treks, tortured relationships, and hidden histories... The characters - especially Icelyn - are well-drawn, as are their tortuous relationships. This isnt just about saving the world - its about a teenager coming to know herself, a task almost as daunting. Serious ideas about morality and even godhood are grist for the mill..."-Kirkus Reviews
