From the Author
When I first started writing "Beyond the Hidden Sky" I had no idea it would expand into a 4-book series. Originally inspired by the scene in the original "Star Wars: A New Hope" where C3PO and R2D2 jettison in the escape pod, it soon became apparent that the story was not going to be simple as each character came to life and contributed the what became a very complicated plot.
Yet at its core, this story is really about family dynamics. Creena and her older brother, Dirck, don't get along, their adversarial feelings toward each other explored throughout the series. While set on another planet with deadly weather extremes and embellished with all the advanced technologies and scientific theories science fiction fans expect, this soap opera is primarily about a family torn apart by hostile forces and their quest to be reunited again, whatever it takes.
