Format: Paperback
Space, adventure, intrigue, romance, spiritual space travel ("kything"), and the good guys win! Jon Malay has given us all that in his first novel and I'm eager for a second. This book is a fast-paced read, a perfect airplane companion and would make a great movie. I'd love to see the visuals and special effects. I found the three women in this novel intriguing and well portrayed by the male author. There's the rather cold, all-business professional; a brilliant and warm NASA colleague, and the Madonna-like Maria. Watching the dynamincs between them and our hero, NASA astronaut, Michael St. Pierre, was secondary to the adventure of outer space and Mike's exploration of spiritual mysteries, but certainly held this woman's attention. Good Job!

For his first book, Jon has created a remarkable journey through the human spirit. Drawing on his personal experience in the U.S. Navy and in the aerospace industry, Jon has pulled together these elements in an entertaining, imaginative story. It's theme of out-of-body experiences makes one expand beyond themselves into the realm of the the imagination. This is a highly entertaining read.

By Robert M. Brantner on October 9, 2003
Format: Paperback
In Seraphim Sky, Mr. Malay tells a story occurring on many planes at once. It takes place in the past through flashbacks, as the story unfolds in the present tense. It is a story rooted firmly in the East Coast of the United States, as well as 200 miles above the planet in the space shuttle Discovery. It is a story of love lost and a love found. A story of flight from the government trying to force its will on an unwilling individual, while that same government protects him from an unwanted fate. It is a story rooted firmly on a physical plane, while exploring a spiritual plane difficult to deny.
Seraphim Sky is a story that will make you think about our world, our governments and our place within the universe and beyond. However the most compelling reason to read Seraphim Sky is its not just a good story, its good story telling. In short, Jon Malay has produced a very enjoyable story - a good read!

Format: Paperback
I truly enjoyed this novel and its humor, mystique, intriuge and romance. I identified with the characters and really felt as though I 'knew' them. I laughed out loud at times, I felt the characters' anger, frustration and hurt... And once I even found myself in tears of joy and wonder as Jon Malay described the spiritual journey of Mike St. Pierre, a true modern day hero that anyone - man or woman of any faith - can truly identify with. I've recommended this book to my Aunt, my friends, my co-workers - and those who have read it definitely share my enthusiasm. We are all looking forward to Jon Malay's next adventure!

By Liz Warner on February 3, 2004
Format: Paperback
Jon Malay's Seraphim Sky is fast-paced, well written, and thoughtful. Mike, an ordinary man dealing with extraordinary events is a hero for all of us who are just trying to make sense of the universe and our place in it. He's one of my favorite characters I've ever met, and through Mr. Malay's vivid writing, Mike grows into a living, breathing presence as you tear through the pages at the speed of flight. I couldn't put this book down and when it came to an end, Mike and his world lingered in mine.
