Kaimira- the sky village

Kaimira, book one, was a very satisfying read. Satisfying, because it was exciting. Satisfying, in a sense that you want more. And satisfying, it was above your expectations.

Kaimira by Monk & Nigel Ashland (published by Candlewick Press) is about two kids (the story switches between them), who share DNA with the meks (evil robots, built for humans), and the beasts (who fight the meks and the humans). The human empire has fallen, and humans have had to retreat into hiding, or up into the Sky Village (a village held up by hot air balloons). The two humans- Mei and Rom- meet each other through two identical books they are told not to open. In two life threatening conditions, they try to help each other through... to survive.

I would rate this book 9/10, and would recommend this book for ages 10-17.

I really liked how Monk & Nigel Ashland wove this story like a pattern, coming together, and amazing you with how the story comes together.

I can't wait for the next book!!!!!!
