Between Earth and Sky: Book #1
“This is a whirlwind of a first installment and I am equally psyched and disappointed that I have to wait for the others to come out. I am a huge huge fan of the audio edition of this book, it is so beautifully done with a full cast and the image of each character is so complete and vivid. A total dream to listen to; I found myself just sitting in my car to finish chapters and find out what was next. It feels sci-fi-esque so anyone who is into space fantasy I think would really enjoy this with its otherworldly-ness. The story definitely keeps you hungry as each character's ambition and intention develop at breakneck speed and all come crashing together at the same moment. Truly just a fun story to get into!”Katie, McLean & Eakin Booksellers
