Time to do the impossible. Time to find a way between worlds. Time to find each other again. Both Nimh and her enemy, Inshara, have been sent to the cloudlands. Above, Nimh has no memory of her past, only an aching, undying certainty that she has left something - someone - behind. But while she struggles to recall her identity, an impostor wields her name with deadly purpose. Below, North looks to the sky, desperate to join the ones he loves and return to his world. But with only a traitor willing to help him, and others clamouring for him to take Nimh's place, the journey seems more impossible than ever. Enemies lurk in each world, and tragedy looms as the cloudland engines falter and mist rains terror on the surface. In their desperation to reunite and save their people, Nimh and North face one ultimate question: Can they defy their love and their destiny to save their homes? Or will the spark between them ignite their worlds and consume them altogether? PRAISE FOR THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SKY 'A vivid and compulsive thriller set in a beautiful, perilous world of myths and treachery. You won't want to put it down.' Laini Taylor, New York Times bestselling author of the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series 'I was left breathless by the book's twists and turns, and was unprepared for the ending - it blew me away. Stop everything and read it!' C.S. Pacat, bestselling author of Dark Rise and the Captive Prince series

Reviews for Beyond the End of the World (#2 Other Side of the Sky)

Praise for The Other Side of the Sky 'Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner prove they are two living goddesses of writing, creating two compelling worlds with high stakes and gripping emotions.' Sarah Rees Brennan, New York Times bestselling author of the Demons Lexicon trilogy and the Lynburn Legacy series 'Kaufman and Spooner, who also collaborated on the Starbound Trilogy, return with another richly drawn, tantalizingly romantic SF series starter. An especially action-packed back half will ensure readers come running back for the next volume.' Booklist 'Co-authors Kaufman and Spooner (the Unearthed duology) reunite for this propulsive, tender-hearted duology opener ... evocative prose, escalating intrigue, and charismatic, predominantly olive- and brown-skinned characters with diverse sexual orientations and gender identities keep the pages turning.' Publishers Weekly 'A complex, intricately woven tale, placed in an intriguing and unique world. This passionate story will thrill devotees of Kaufman and Spooner's Starbound series while also appealing to fans of Naomi Novik, Marissa Meyer, and Claudia Gray.' School Library Journal
