Publisher's Summary

A thrilling genre-bending saga about six extraordinary people whose fates become intertwined on an Earth far different from their own.
Without warning, the world comes to an end for Hannah and Amanda Given. The sky looms frigid white. The electricity falters. Airplanes everywhere crash to the ground. But the Givens are saved by mysterious strangers, three fearsome and beautiful beings who force a plain silver bracelet onto each sister' s wrist. Within moments, the sky comes down in a crushing sheet of light and everything around them is gone. Shielded from the devastation by their silver adornments, the Givens suddenly find themselves elsewhere, a strange new Earth where restaurants move through the air like flying saucers and the fabric of time is manipulated by common household appliances. Soon Hannah and Amanda are joined by four other survivors from their world - a mordant cartoonist, a shy teenage girl, a brilliant young Australian, and a troubled ex-prodigy. Hunted by enemies they never knew they had and afflicted with temporal abilities they never wanted, the sisters and their companions begin a cross-country journey to find the one man who can save them - before time runs out. Brilliantly imagined and electrifying from the first page, The Flight of the Silvers is the thrilling first book in a genre-bending new series.

Critic Reviews

"An absorbing adventure with a fresh take on both the parallel-universe and the paranormal subgenres. You'll get pulled in." ( Kirkus Reviews)
"The cast is engaging...and the author has created an alternate-reality world that is both bewilderingly different and reassuringly familiar…. A highly imaginative exercise in world building that also features characters it’s very easy to care about." ( Booklist)

First scifi hit for me in a while

SF stories have been pretty disappointing for me lately, so this was just surprisingly good in comparison. I didn't like the name, nor the first 10 minutes of the book. But then I got hooked. I am not sure what it was about this book, but I was in. Totally in. I would listen on my way to work and have to snap out of it to make sure I didn't miss my exit! The characters are compelling in their realish personalities, the story is unique despite alternate world/end of the world tropes, and even the superhero qualities are written with fresh ... freshness.

Glad I took a gamble

I took a chance on this book as it had no reviews yet and author was unknown to me, but the idea of parallel worlds intrigued me. The story is thought provoking with time travel, multiple worlds, time lines and paradoxes. The characters are saved from our world and thrust unto a whole new earth that is similar but different. They have each developed a super power that they gradually learn about, so if you are into reluctant super hero stories this book is for you. The narrator was great. My only problem is it appears to be the first of a series of books and I hate waiting, I want more now lol
