Welcome to the From Sky to Sky Blog Tour!

Release Date: February 1, 2020
Daredevil Zac Wilson isn’t the first celebrity to keep a secret from the world, but his might be the most marvelous in history: Zac doesn’t age and injuries can’t kill him. What’s more, he’s part of a close-knit group of others just like him.
Holed up in Harbor Vale, Michigan, Zac meets two more of his kind who claim others in their circle have died. Are their lifetimes finally ending naturally, or is someone targeting them—a predator who knows what they are?
The answers Zac unearths present impossible dilemmas: whom to protect, how to seek justice, how to bring peace to turmoil. His next action could fracture forever the family he longs to unite. Now might be the time to ask for help. . .from God Himself. But Zac’s greatest fear is facing the God he has run from for more than a century.
Amanda G. Stevens is not afraid of using flawed, broken characters. Nor is she afraid to branch out into the realm of perceived impossibilities in Christian fiction. Her previous alternate reality/futuristic fiction stories have proven as much. And this story is no different.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story for its characters. Mainly Zac, as it’s all in his POV. But the others were just as fascinating. Amanda expertly conveyed the depth of history of this immortal without once info-dumping. All of the past struggles of lifetimes experienced in his past came through to the reader as we were getting to know Zac. As if we walked alongside him in friendship as he loses and struggles to rebuild his community; as he attempted to fold in new-found immortals into his ‘family’; as he struggled with the curse of immortality and whether or not to accept that God still loved him and cared for him.
I love reading authors who know how to drop backstory in bits and pieces. It brings me deeper into the story because I don’t know what’s going on until he knows what’s going on. I don’t know why he’s reacting the way he reacts until he tells me (or the other characters) It’s so much fun.
Plus this story is so imaginative. Taking that dream-like, impossibility of immortality and turning it on its head. This story was adventurous, emotional, and thought provoking. I highly recommend!
