Above the Timberline Read Online Free - From renowned artist Gregory Manchess comes a lavishly painted novel about the son of a famed polar explorer searching for his stranded father, and a lost city buried under snow in an alternate future.
When it started to snow, it didn’t stop for 1,500 years. The Pole Shift that ancient climatologists talked about finally came, the topography was ripped apart and the weather of the world was changed—forever. Now the Earth is covered in snow, and to unknown depths in some places.
In this world, Wes Singleton leaves the academy in search of his father, the famed explorer Galen Singleton, who was searching for a lost city until Galen’s expedition was cut short after being sabotaged. But Wes believes his father is still alive somewhere above the timberline.
Fully illustrated with over 120 pieces of full-page artwork throughout, Above the Timberline is a stunning and cinematic combination of art and novel.

I’d never read a “painted novel” before, but I think I like it—especially if it means getting to enjoy my stories with such jaw-droppingly stunning artwork. It certainly doesn’t get better than Above the Timberline by Grego...

Amazing art . One of the most beautiful that I’ve ever seen . The setting was right down my alley : snow , snow and some more snow combined with huge polar bears and some steampunk elements .
Unfortunately the story itself was a bit predictable and the characters one-dimensional; but don’t let...

A tale of a young man's quest for his archeologist father in another, polar world.
The clues that this is post-apocalyptic are light, because that it is our world is not that important. What is important that when the father's expedition to find a city is lost, and his message returns, the son can...

Reading this book gave me the same kind of warm fuzzies that the Dinotopia books did. I enjoyed the setting and story and the art is wonderful. I look forward the next one (please).

A beautiful book (a graphic novel) and a good story. Would really appeal to any fans of Philip Reeve or Philip Pullman. Very original, deserves to be a best seller

This is self-contained but also potentially the b...

Received in exchange for a honest review.
Gregory Manchess as an artist is amazing. The illustrations are so detailed and just gorgeous. The artwork alone tells a story and sometimes that is a wonderful thing. It is here because it helps to enhance the tale that is being written about. It puts the...

I'd really been looking forward to this book since I first saw some of the first few paintings, I believe when it popped up on Tor.com. Several months later, one of my friends let me borrow her copy and I'm away on the adventure! First off, the art in this book is beautiful, absolutely top-notch...

5/5 for the stellar, vibrant art--especially because it's paint on canvas. (Static computer-generated art feels invariably lifeless and boring.)
The pulpy story (inclusive of imagery) breezes by beautifully, but misses any impactive emotional beats. You might say that's not the point of pulp; but...
