Might be nice to have something like this on cosplay.com. A sort of 'help me identify this book' kind of thread?
I know I'm in the middle of working on my costume for an upcoming convention and all but this book is driving me crazy trying to remember it and ruining my concentration because it looked so cool and the summary sounded so enticing
I fear I'll be forced to go shelf by shelf looking for it to finally put my mind at ease (and with Fantasy/Scifi taking up a good 13-14 bookcases, I'll go bonkers looking through each individual book)
Hopefully someone knows this book and can put my questioning to rest. So here goes:
1- I saw it at Barnes and Noble on the shelf for Fantasy/Scifi new releases maybe a month ago, maybe two?
2- Pretty sure it had a one word title.
3- The image was of a futuristic, grimy city, the perspective was looking UP from the lower level. No distinguishing signs/shops/characters. There was, I remember, one long bridge that ran from one side of the book cover to the other.
4- Read the back summary, well, skimmed it over. Future society of this city is divided up into levels, government living up at the tippy top while thieves, rapists, murderers, and all the other filth live on the lowest level.
(This one I may be mixing up with anothe rback cover I read the same day so I'm about 30% sure this is part of the book cover back I'm attempting to find) 5- I think the main character lives on either the middle level or the lower levels and somehow the main character obtained some kind of information or object that the government had to retrieve by going down to the lower levels. Only they don't know them as well as our main character does.
Please please please can anyone help me find this book?
