About the Book

Perfect for fans of Brandon Sanderson and Laini Taylor, this much-anticipated sequel to New York Times bestselling authors Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner’s The Other Side of the Sky is a thrilling race against time—with a tantalizing star-crossed love and an electric conclusion.

Time to find a way between worlds. Time to find each other again. Time to do the impossible.

Above, in the cloudlands, Nimh has no memory of her past, only an aching, undying certainty that she has left something—someone—behind. But while she struggles to recall her identity, an imposter wields her name with deadly purpose.

Below, on the surface, North looks to the sky, desperate to join the person he loves and return to his world. But with only a traitor willing to help him, and others clamoring for him to take Nimh’s place, his home seems more unreachable than ever.

Tragedy looms as the cloudland engines falter and mist rains terror on the surface, and in their desperation to reunite and save their people, Nimh and North face one ultimate question: can they defy their love and their destiny to save their homes?

Or will the spark between them ignite their worlds, and consume them all together?

Critical Praise

Praise for The Other Side of the Sky: “A vivid and compulsive thriller set in a beautiful, perilous world of myths and treachery. You won’t want to put it down.” - Laini Taylor, New York Times bestselling author of the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series

"Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner prove they are two living goddesses of writing, creating two compelling worlds with high stakes and gripping emotions." - Sarah Rees Brennan, New York Times bestselling author of the Demons Lexicon trilogy and the Lynburn Legacy series. 

“I was left breathless by the book’s twists and turns, and was unprepared for the ending—it blew me away. Stop everything and read it!” - C. S. PACAT, bestselling author of the Captive Prince series

“Kaufman and Spooner, who also collaborated on the Starbound Trilogy, return with another richly drawn, tantalizingly romantic sf series starter. An especially action-packed back half will ensure readers come running back for the next volume.”  - Booklist

“Coauthors Kaufman and Spooner (the Unearthed duology) reunite for this propulsive, tender-hearted duology opener… evocative prose, escalating intrigue, and charismatic, predominantly olive- and brown-skinned characters with diverse sexual orientations and gender identities keep the pages turning.” - Publishers Weekly

“A complex, intricately woven tale, placed in an intriguing and unique world. This passionate story will thrill devotees of Kaufman and Spooner’s “Starbound” series while also appealing to fans of Naomi Novik, Marissa Meyer, and Claudia Gray.” - School Library Journal


Praise for Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner’s STARBOUND series:
  “Absolutely brilliant. This is the sci fi I’ve been waiting for!” 

- Beth Revis, New York Times bestselling author of Across the Universe

“One of the most intense, thrilling, and achingly beautiful stories I’ve ever read. Kaufman and Spooner will break your heart with skilled aplomb, and you’ll thank them for it. Absolutely incredible! If I have to, I will come to your house and shove this book into your hands.” - Marie Lu, New York Times best-selling author of the Legend trilogy

“With rich, complex characters and a dynamic—and dangerous—new world, THESE BROKEN STARS completely transported me.”  - Jodi Meadows, author of the Incarnate series

“These Broken Stars is at its heart a love story. Voiced in alternate chapters, Lilac and Tarver are characters of depth, complexity, and strength, young people who alternately elicit the reader’s admiration, frustration, and sympathy. While the book is the first of a promised trilogy, it stands on its own as a testament to love, loyalty, courage, and the power of good over dystopian greed and perversity.”  - ALA Booklist (starred review)

“Kaufman and Spooner couple an epic romance with dazzling science fiction in a tale that will appeal to lovers of both genres. This is a must-read.” 5Q (Quality rating of 5/5), Best Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror List, 2013. - Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

“First-time author Kaufman and coauthor Spooner begin their science-fiction romance in familiar territory and then chart a course that goes to new heights … a wonderful tale that should appeal to both teen and adult readers.” - School Library Journal

“Strange visions and apparitions give the story a chilling edge, and a late revelation elevates these developments into entirely new territory. In a collaboration that, at times, evokes Lost, Titanic, and Romancing the Stone, Spooner (Skylark) and newcomer Kaufman do an excellent job of keeping their story from falling into clichéd romantic territory … the external conflicts and underlying mysteries will keep readers guessing (and turning the pages).” - Publishers Weekly
