 I just knew I wasn't going to like "Silent Altitudes" by Michael James Emberger but again I was wrong!  I really liked this book, but I can't say the same for some of the characters. I kept reading because I had to know why Kathleen and Valentina was so evil. 

This is a good book about conspiracy theories and climate change. 

This book has it all, love, betrayal, science, forgiveness and death and friendship. There is violence but it isn't over the top with graphic details.  The science part of this book was not overly done as is in some book of this type so it was easily to follow.  The characters ( most) are person I think most of us would like to be friends with.  Okay, there is one scene, that a character gave his life to save another.  And yes, it make me sad, but then it make me think that is what Jesus did for all of us.  No, the book doesn't say that this character is God or Jesus or does it even mention that. The thought was my own. 

There is no swearing or sex scenes so I would say that this book is a adult book but I think an mature older teen who reads would like this book. 

I was really surprised at how two of the characters were connected. I just know you want to know now, so I say get yourself a copy and found out and then we will both know the secret!

I would love to read an sequel to this book because the epilogue shows three years into the future but it does mention another character's death and I want to know if this character died from old age or from something else. You know, readers want to know everything! 

I received a complimentary  copy from the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.

More from Michael

Silent Altitudes is a Cli-fi (Climate Fiction) thriller set in the near future. I wanted to avoid the current political debates over global warming, so I went with the assumption that the world eventually comes to consensus about what to do. The United Nations rolls out an elaborate technological solution, but sabotage and conspiracy lead to disaster on startup day. That’s the type of angle I enjoy writing. Climate change is the backdrop, but this book is about family and survival and fighting against the greed and corruption that have laid good intentions to ruin. It’s about loss and hope and trusting that God is still in control even when everything seems hopeless.

A significant inspiration for this book was a phrase my daughter would say when she was little: “Hold you Mommy.” It meant she wanted a hug. I contacted Laura, a pottery artist on Etsy, and ordered a custom mug with that phrase as a Christmas present for my wife. Laura was a joy to work with, and our conversation led to me developing characters and themes that provided the heart of my story. I find it’s those little inspirations that make the biggest difference in my writing.
