Beneath the Fallen City (The Omni Towers Series Book 1) by Jamie A. Waters. I find myself want to expand my horizons in the reading world so I was glad to pick up this book and give it a try. And I’m so glad I did. I found myself completely drawn into this world the author has created in a short time and found I really enjoyed the adventure I was taken on with Kayla and the other characters. Kayla’s character was one I won’t be forgetting anytime soon I just loved her attitude and found I really wanted to have a friend just like her. Like I said this was a bit outside my wheel house of reading but that being said I was impressed with the characters and storyline. It’s well written and paced nicely. It’s a unique story and I found myself not wanting it to end. I’m excited to see where readers are taken next. Four stars and highly recommended!
When I first read the synopsis of this book it didn’t really resonate with me. So, I passed it by on one or two occasions. One day when I just didn’t have anything else going on, I picked this book. And WOW I am glad I did. I have to say I am well and truly hooked into this series. In Beneath the Fallen City: The Omni Towers Series, Book 1 Jamie A. Waters has given us a world that is so well described you come away feeling like you are as familiar with that culture as you are your own. The two cultures in this book are meticulously described and so well fashioned. Kayla is tough, tough, tough and stubborn to boot. Right away you are sucked into wondering what could produce a young woman so hard-headed, and you just keep reading cause, you gotta know……right? Carl our hero of this story……or wait……maybe it’s Alec you just won’t know until you pick this one up and immerse yourself into the ruins and the Omnitower. There are some sexual situations that might be offensive to some, but this book gets a maximum rating from me and I really am looking forward to the next one.
This story is so good. I don’t usually read dystopian stories but thought I would give this one a try as I may get the chance to meet this author in a few months. I am so glad I did!
The setting of this story is after the apocalypse. People have been divided, obviously. Kayla is our main character. She is rough, tough and oh so sexy. She is completely awesome. She’s smart, funny and doesn’t take crap from anyone. She lives to find lost treasure. However, others want the lost treasures of the world as well. Carl being just one of them. Carl is also rough, tough and oh so sexy. He is a little higher on the social scale than Kayla but you wouldn’t know it. These two cause problems for each other as soon as they meet.
With some unexpected twists, these two end up fighting for love, humanity and basically world peace! The adventure Kayla takes is breath-taking and a little unbelievable. She learns things about herself she never even imagined.
I “hated” the way this story ended, mostly because I didn’t want it to end at all! So glad there is more!
Highly recommend this story!

Beneath the Fallen City by Jamie A. Waters a four-star read that will swoop in and save you. This is number one in the Omni Towers series and if the rest are as good then it shows great promise of being a series you wont want to miss, as this has some great world building and some great backstory for the characters, that for a single story wouldn’t work very well, but as a series shows great promise for the story. This is a great story of action and adventure with some love thrown in to change up the mix, Kayla is a great character and one you won’t want to miss.

Beneath the Fallen City (The Omni Towers Series Book 1)
By Jamie A. Waters
My rating 5 out of 5 stars
I love post-apocalyptic stories and this book definitely did not disappoint me. There is action, romance and drama, all tying together to make for an excellent read. The characters were very well developed and the story sucked me in right away.
Kayla is one of our main characters. She is strong and independent and can stand on her own. She works as ruin rat, finding artifacts to trade. Carl is handsome, and works as a trader for Omni Lab, who acquires the artifacts requested from kayla.
There is an immediate attraction between the two, but they also both despise each other because of their different backgrounds. Carl ends up wanting to recruit Kayla to be on his team and at the same time Kayla is being hunted.
This book is again, so excellent and well worth the read. I do hope we get to see more of Veridian and read more of his story as well but either way I can’t wait to see what happens next!
Beneath the Fallen City (The Omni Towers Series Book 1) by Jamie A. Waters is a very well written and I found it to be engaging as well. I found myself lost in the pages and couldn’t stop reading till the end. 150 years after a world war has destroyed the Earth, Kayla savage’s through rubble looking for goods that she can sell it for necessities. Kayla works with a group of other but is a girl who can hold her own. Carl is her nemesis and an official trader. He has a habit of ripping her off amongst others. Although there is definitely a attraction between them she really doesn’t want to stick around.. These two are not able to live OmniLab Towers,they were built before the war and only allow select people who are usually wealthy. Find out what happens next in this must read. I look forward to reading more from this Author.
Beneath the Fallen City by Jamie A Waters is the first book in The Omni Towers series. I jumped right in and I am glad I did. This is a dystopian story with a science-fiction edge to it. Kayla is a survivor and tough to boot. When she becomes the hunted she has to team up with her enemy. I do not want to give more away because you need to read Kayla’s adventure to find out what happens. The writing is really well done and kept me reading from start to finish. I enjoyed the different characters and how they helped bring me into their world. I look forward to the next book in the series.
What a brilliant introduction to this new author. This being my first read from Jamie A. Waters I didn’t know what to expect, but I was most definitely not disappointed, this author has an incredible writing style one that’s full of action, adventure and romance.
This author has created a storyline that is captivating and keeps you hooked from start to finish, and characters that are well developed, relatable and you can’t help but really enjoy following their journey. This book has twists and turns that leave you wanting more.
I cant wait to see what else happens in this series and what more this author can bring!

I have never had the pleasure of reading anything by Jamie A. Waters previous to Beneath the Fallen City. I really just loved the cover and the blurb was just enough divulging that I really wanted to know what the whole story was. Beneath the Fallen City is the first of The Omni Towers Series. I felt like there is something for everyone with this book. You have the dystopian world that is post-apocalyptic. Of course there is the action and adventure that seems to accompany the genre but I like the drama and character stories. They add a flare that I feel lacks in a lot of the dystopian novels that I find myself reading. I definitely enjoyed our MC, Kayla. She is a strong voice and a strong woman who takes up the task without hesitation. I loved the world building as well. I felt as if I was in the far off world with Kayla as she scavengers and attempts to keep herself alive and in one piece. I am looking forward to seeing what the next books will bring. In the time I wait I will go and see what else might be available by Jamie A Waters.
