Can you see the story breathing?

A mountain so great it takes a year to travel from base to summit.
A sun so powerful it drives you into madness if you look at it.
An ascent so vital it determines the fate of the world.
A summit so precious it holds the key to the divine.
The world of the great Mountain is unstable. Giant pillars erupt from the surface and yawning chasms form unpredictably underfoot. Since the Maelir first stood on its slopes in the distant past, they have sought to still its anger and control its power. Each year, twin brothers are chosen to make a perilous journey to the summit. If they survive they will be witness to Zenith, and the secrets will be revealed to them.

When Atreu and Teyth embark on their Ascent, their Talismans lead them onto conflicting paths that will ultimately set brother against brother. And this time the Ascent itself is in peril as unknown forces that have long craved the power of Zenith will stop at nothing to make it their own even if it means destroying the very thing that sustains all life the Mountain itself.


When I first heard about this book, I was unsure what it would entail, or whether it would be something I would enjoy or not. Zenith is the story of a journey of a young man trying to reach the Summit in order to complete his training. Again with this description I didnt know whether it would be my cup of tea or not. But I always give books a go, so I began Zenith.

Starting I was slightly confused by the concept on Zenith itself and why no one could look at it, but the fact that the main character and his twin could reveal the answer intrigued me. So they set off on their journey's to find the answer, and this is were the singular narrative came in. With this book we, the readers are following Atreu's Ascent and seeing all the obstacles that he faces. 

I enjoyed the narrative of this book, it felt like one of those old myths we were told as children, this also applied to the tone, as it felt like the story of a brave knight (Arteu) on a journey (Ascent) who faces evil along the way (Faemir) I love the feel of this book, the adventure, the characters within the story and the ending. Though I did wish I could have read about his twin's Teyth Ascent as well as Artue's. All in all I enjoyed Zenith and would recommned it to anyone who loves books filled with adventure.

Write again soon.
