Description: Abi, age seventeen, lives in a world the inverse of our own, where the inhabitants dwell along the inside of a hollow sphere instead of on the outside of a solid one, and where the temperatures have been dropping for generations, choking her world in irrepressible cold—burying it in ice and snow. Her people are compelled to trade their children to the glendryll in exchange for the coal they need to survive.

Holding the book in both hands, he positioned it high enough to hide most of his face.

Oh how he wished he could play! But no one...

IT WAS A COMPLETE DISASTER.
Whelp...that was horribly disappointing...

“A wedding ring is a symbol of commitment; a promise, a pledge, and a vow. The promise is to forsake all others, to stay devoted and true; the pledge is to honor that promise selflessly, to see the whole thing through; and the vow is to keep that pledge unwaveringly, until the days are few. It is a mutual agreement to become one instead of two.”
J.W. Lord, Author of Worlds

“Upon hearing the news I felt completely emptied. Emptied of life, feeling, and hope. I felt as if my very soul had left my body.”
J.W. Lord

“Stars are God’s way of showing us that light can survive the darkness and shine through – that there is hope; even in dark times. That the darkness isn’t all there is.”
J. W. Lord

It is a mutual agreement to become one instead of two.”
J.W. Lord, Author of Worlds

“This was not what we wanted to hear that morning. Adventures inspire, tall tales excite, and fantasies stir the imagination, but sad stories seldom ever buoy the spirit. We all paused to take in the sad news.”
J. W. Lord

“My dad told me that God allows people to make their own choices and doesn’t override their free will. That is why bad things happen. People don’t do the things they should.”
J. W. Lord

“She was a light from Heaven, and a beauty for all of us to behold.”
