Top Ten Tuesday – Books With The Main Character On The Cover

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, this week is Books With [ ] On The Cover. I have decided to choose main characters. I like it when the main characters are on the front cover in the middle of a scene. I think it helps to bring the blurb of the book to life.

Here are my Top 10:

Book Review – The Threat Below by J S Latshaw

The Threat Below by J.S Latshaw


Three hundred years ago, something terrifying arose and pushed humanity to the brink of extinction. Now, a small remnant – the descendants of the few survivors who were able to escape the massacre below – lives above the clouds, on the top of a Mountain. 
When they discover that their water supply is being poisoned Down Below, an expedition, including seventeen year-old girl Icelyn Brathius, must descend and face the monsters, the Threat Below, that wiped out civilization centuries ago. 

Icelyn quickly learns that all is not what it seems as she uncovers secrets hundreds of years old and struggles to stay alive in a world where no human is fit to survive.


I was asked if I would like to read this book and I am pleased that I accepted. Whilst I didn’t get in to it straight away, it wasn’t long before I was hooked. It got more gripping and emotional the further through I got. 

It was well written with short chapters that allowed you to build a complete picture made up of lots of different parts. I liked how there was a narrator and then the voice and perception of the main character. 

The characters were well written and even those that were dislikeable, you could understand why they were the way they were.

The settings were amazing. I loved the descriptions of the Mountain Top and then the contrast with the Down Below. It was interesting to see how each of the characters reacted to the change in scenery. Whilst they were in the same place as one another they viewed it differently. I think that whoever you are you will be able to find a character to relate to in this book in some form or another.

There were some beautiful and thought provoking moments between the characters and you could really feel what they were going through. I loved the array of relationships going on in this book! It certainly kept me on my toes! 

Overall a great read.

⭐Rated 4.5/5⭐
