BOOK TOUR: Into the Air, by A.K.. Downing

Like everyone else in the world, Mia Bryn lives in the dark. Buried in an underground compound, her life is spent in brief allotments of florescent light and dwindling food supplies. But when a letter arrives, Mia and her father are invited to embark on a journey that no one else has been allowed to take for over a hundred years. They are asked to leave the ground and travel into the air. But the outside world is more surprising and dangerous than Mia could have ever imagined. To survive, she must trust her instincts, learn about a world she knows nothing about, and accept her destiny.

Available to buy from….   Barnes and Noble    Kobo   Paperback

“Downing’s Into The Air is that fresh take on the YA post-apocalyptic vision we’ve all been waiting for. Mia Bryn is a wonderful character—one who starts out charmingly mortal but soon becomes the heroine we, and her people, need her to be. Can’t wait for the next Mia chapter!” Bruce McAllister, Author of the Cybils-nominated The Village Sang to the Sea: A Memoir of Magic

“There’s a new star in the Young Adult firmament—A. K. Downing’s series, beginning with Into The Air, is sure to be a reader favorite right up there with The Hunger Games and The 100 trilogy.” Richard Snodgrass , Author of There’s Something in the Back Yard


“Did you ever feel so lost that you didn’t know if the ground was above your head or below your feet?”

About the author

A. K. Downing is the author of the young adult, adventure novel Into the Air. She grew up in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania and spent her summers exploring the fields, woods and orchards of her grandparents’ farm. She studied graphic design at Kent State University and currently works as a Creative Director. She enjoys history, camping, and walking through fields of tall grass, and feels there is no better way to see the world than from the top of a horse. She currently lives in the woods with her husband, daughter, two cats and five chickens. Into the Air is her first novel.

Into the Air is certainly a fresh and great take on a risky genre – there are lots of authors who mess everything up without realising. Thankfully that is not the case here. I love how it reminded me of  The 100 which is a book-to-TV series that I so much enjoyed.

A top-notch and hard to put down read, the book gives us the story of Mia – who is this amazing character everyone can relate to. She’s spontaneous and brave and someone great to look up to. You can easily fall in love with her and cheer for her the entire book.

Mia has no idea what kind of a great future she is destined to live, what adventures she’s going to go through and how that that’ll change her. I don’t want to give too many spoilers because I want you people to read this book and love it, so I’ll keep the description of the storyline short, summing it into one word: A M A Z I N G. It was interesting and keeping you at the edge of the seat. You know I love such reads and obviously I enjoyed this one.

To end it quick so you have time to go read the book, I add:

If you want a good written Dystopian, guess which book I’m recommending? Hunger Games? NOPE! Divergent? NOPE! Into the Air? Hell yeah! If you want a badass main character, which one am I pointing at? Katniss? N to the O. Tris? No. Mia? OH YEAH. Fabulous fabulous fabulous!
