What do these eight children have in common? They're all survivors of a supernatural plane crash in what's supposed to be the Artic, but instead looks like a South American jungle. The little food they could salvage from the plane crash is running out, and water is scarce. The jungle is chock-full of dangerous and deathly organisms, including carnivorous vines and "shredder birds", which are just as frightening as their name entails.

Anything could be the difference between life and death for these children, and time is running out. I was prepared for nightmares at the beginning of this book. I don't usually like survival books, especially if they're frightening. And so, I had very low expectations. I think I can safely say that Horizon surpassed my hopes by a long shot. It is intriguing and suspenseful, with well-fleshed out characters and a delightful mystery complete with plenty of red herrings.
The tiny clues embedded throughout the novel eventually come together to form a beautiful and supernatural enigma. This book actually sounds like it's being narrated by the teenagers, which is, I believe, almost impossible. It's the perfect balance, and it adds a dimension to this story that somehow makes it more believable.
All in all, this was a very well-written book. Fans of The Hunger Games and sci-fi classics would be as delighted with this novel as I was. This is definitely a book I would read again and have just as much fun reading it the second time as the first.
You should definitely give this a go, even if you don't usually like survival or sci-fi stories. It's a wonderfully written book that will not disappoint. Salonee V.

When a plane crash-lands in the arctic, eight young survivors step from the wreckage expecting to see nothing but ice and snow.
Instead they find themselves lost in a strange jungle with no way to get home and little hope of rescue. Food is running out. Water is scarce.
And the jungle is full of threats unlike anything the survivors have ever seen before -- from razor-beaked shredder birds to carnivorous vines and much, much worse. With danger at every turn, these eight kids must learn to work together to survive. But cliques and rivalries threaten to tear them apart.
