From the Author
I had a dream a few years ago. I dreamed of a golden creature of love and life. As the dream progressed, that angelic creature was superimposed upon me. And then she became me. Joy coursed through me. I was totally good, totally alive. Golden light poured from me. I was the Angel.
The experience carried forward into my day, slowly dissipating until I was my ordinary self. I realized I'd been given a gift. I'd been granted a glimpse of the Angel's reality.
In the days that followed, the rest of The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy flowed out, as the characters revealed themselves to me. Jeremy Edgarton, son of a great musician and an infamous beauty, heir to one of the great fortunes of his world. A genius? An outcast? A revolutionary? Then came Jeremy's friends and the dangerous milieu in which they lived, a tortured United States on the verge of disaster.
Was that dream all that prompted the book series, the Earth's End Trilogy? No. A few months before I had the dream, my brother died unexpectedly and tragically. My grief wrote The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy. As I remembered our life together, I wanted to give my brother a tribute that captured his essence. My unconscious did the rest.
That was how the Tales from Earth's End series was born. The tales are stories of human beings pushed to their extremity, literally to the end of the earth. They come from my depths being jostled and torn, wounded. Writing was the cure.
But now I invite you to join me and meet The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy.

Actually, the whole book is legendary – or at least has the potential to become so. This is a FAST moving, can’t-put-it-down roller-coaster almost from the get go. The characters are real, the dialog believable, and the twists sharp enough to tie you up in the story line until you just HAVE to find out what happens next. I can’t want to read the next two books in this series.
This book literally has it all – aliens, psychics, psychopaths, ghosts (‘hants’), twisted history, Armageddon, philosophy, shades of Orwell, shadows of Dune…
My only complaint is a distracting formatting error in the Kindle version that puts a page break after the first letter of the chapter in about half the chapters.
The year is 2197. Hermitage Academy is a ballet school that is struggling to keep it's doors open. Madame needs a ballerina to partner with her star male dancer. She has arranged (bought) a Russian dancer to come to the Academy. The plane she was on disappeared mid-flight. A young girl wearing toe shoes finds her way to the school. She is an amazing dancer and everyone assumes she is the Russian dancer. In a bazaar set of circumstances she winds up with Jeremy Edgarton whose mother is a generous benefactor of the school. Jeremy is a 16 year old computer genius who has built an elaborate computer system in the basement at one end of the school. No one bothers him because he is totally focused on his work. Henry, a guard at the school, looks out for Jeremy. He and his wife Lena take care of Jeremy when his mother is unavailable.
I know this is a lot of detail for a review but very little is as it seems in this story. As more of the plot was revealed, my liking of this unusual book increased. Some may complain it's a cliffhanger ending. This is a trilogy so there is a lot more to the story. I thought the ending was perfect because it took care of the main characters in a logical manner. I was undecided about a four or five star rating when I realized I wanted to know what happened next for this world. This tipped the scale toward the five star rating.
I received the book as a promotion and liked it so well that I ordered the next two in the series so I can continue reading right away. Well done, Sandy. Thank you
