Description
"I could list the wonders of this new world for a while, but I'd rather let you discover them for yourself when you read the book. You should read this book! I loved The Flight of the Silvers . I found it very difficult to put it aside to deal with my own life…It really is an amazing book." --SF Crow's Nest 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. " The Flight of the Silvers is a fabulous piece of speculative fiction. Its opening chapter is completely captivating, introducing Amanda and Hannah in a way that is unforgettable… This is an intricately plotted novel and it is also a beautifully written one. Enjoyable wordplay -- including the creation of new words and the clever use of phrases -- make The Flight of the Silvers as intellectually engaging as it is fun…. It's a substantial book but a hugely enjoyable one and it is extremely difficult to put down." --For Winter Nights blog
