Zac Wilson can’t die.

Daredevil Zac Wilson isn’t the first celebrity to keep a secret from the world, but his might be the most marvelous in history: Zac doesn’t age and injuries can’t kill him. What’s more, he’s part of a close-knit group of others just like him.

Holed up in Harbor Vale, Michigan, Zac meets two more of his kind who claim others in their circle have died.

Rachel McMillan
For endorsement:

From Sky to Sky proves yet again that Stevens does not merely write books rather experiences that engage the heart and mind. Visionary and compelling, yet always extremely readable, Stevens continues her tradition of thought provoking speculative fiction. With a philosopher's eye, she weaves deft characterization, unparalleled atmosphere and characters whose journeys I would follow to the ends of the earth in a challenging, beautifully rendered way.

From Sky to Sky is book Two in a series written by Amanda G. Stevens. I did not realize it was a part of a series at first and there were a few times where I felt like I was a few steps behind in the beginning. But a third of the way into the book, the plot takes off and it doesn't seem like I missed too much by not reading the first book.

Christian Sci-Fi is a new genre for me, and I am very surprised at how much I liked this book. One of the main characters, Zac Wilson is a well known

This is a series where you definitely want to read book 1 first. Bonus:Book 1 is amazing so why wouldn’t you want to read it? First off, this series will get you to think. The mystery will keep you turning the pages and the characters will make you invested. Unlike any series I’ve read before.

From Sky to Sky is the second in the No Less Days series by Amanda G. Stevens. It is about a group of people who seem young, but are over 100 years old. All of them were given a serum in the early 1900s that froze them at their current age. Having not read the first book, I was a little lost in the beginning. The reader will definitely benefit from reading the first book (No Less Days).

Zach is struggling to deal with the loss of a friend who completely betrayed him and seems to be in danger of

I happened upon this book on NG, requested it, got approved, started reading it and realized I had to read the first one in order to understand this one (the publisher should have noted that).

I'd call this genre contemporary speculative Christian. It's a very interesting premise, a group of people who were treated in the late 1860s /70s with a special serum that cures fatal injuries and keeps them young. They can't die a normal death.

The first book is about David and his discovery of Zac and

The first thing I would say is I feel it's a must to read book 1 in this series before this book. I preordered book 1 as soon as I saw the synopsis and who wrote it. A story about a small group of people who can't die or age. Well, there's one way they can die, but I won't say anything else about that. As in No Less Days, this author's writing is outstanding. She gives the characters such depth. I felt I was along side them during the story. This book is mostly Zac's story and told from his ...more

Title: From Sky to Sky (No Less Days Series #2)
Author: Amanda G. Stevens
Pages: 320
Year: 2020
Publisher: Shiloh Run Press
My rating: 4 out of 5 stars.
Amanda G. Stevens provides yet again a tale that weaves themes of faith into a story with suspense. I really was hooked with the first book, No Less Days. The main lead in that book was named David. While it isn’t necessary to read No Less Days before this book, I found it helpful to know what happened before this story started. When I opened the

I really enjoyed this book! I picks up right where No Less Days left off. I love how Amanda G. Stevens wasn’t afraid to write about such a broken character. She had a great message about not hiding your brokenness. I really enjoyed seeing more of these characters. It seems like this one ended with the possibility of another book. I sure hope there is more!



I received a complimentary copy from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.

Turns out this is a hard one for me to rate and review.

There is a small handful of people that are longevites- they are immortal. Because of a special serum given them when younger (in the 1800's) they have the opportunity to live forever. Not all of them are happy about this. When some of these individuals start to die, the rest take it upon themselves to find out what happened. This is a story of loss, love, and finding the way back to faith.

I felt like I was slogging through the first half

In this stunning follow on to No Less Days, the story continues through Zac’s point of view. The complex plot unfolds piece by piece, revealing new characters and adding to the longevite family in unexpected ways. I am absolutely enthralled by this concept.

Ms. Steven’s masterful use of language, intricate weaving of faith elements, and vivid exploration of the impossible make this an exquisite work of speculative fiction art. Truly brilliant.

It’s rare I finish a book thinking wow, can I re-read that right now, but twice now Amanda G. Stevens has produced that effect for me with her No Less Days series. This series is such a unique blend of speculative fiction and suspense saturated by God’s love story toward mankind throughout time set against a beautiful backdrop of Michigan beauty all woven together to create an irresistible story.

I can’t recommend highly enough; this series truly is special and not typical of any other in its

I feel as though I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this series, because as soon as I try to put voice to my thoughts, they all gush up at once and get jammed in my throat. Or fingers, as the case may be! My number one tip is to read NO LESS DAYS before this one. This is a series that is essential to read in order for maximum impact. Other than that, it’s perhaps best if I try to separate my thoughts into distinct categories.

Firstly, the premise—a group of previously unconnected

Having not read the first book in this serious, I felt like I came in the middle of the story. It felt like something was missing for me, but I kept reading and it turned out to be a good read. There were a few twists and turns that kept the story lively and interesting. I think I would have enjoyed it more had I read the others book first. My thanks to Netgalley, the publisher and the author for an advance copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

No Less Days, the first book in the series, was one of my favourite reads of 2019. I loved how Stevens grappled with the notion of immortality and how faith in God 'works' when one is a longevite. I would suggest reading No Less Days before venturing into this one.

From Sky to Sky is Zac Wilson's story. We knew it would be because Stevens tells us at the end of No Less Days. We had met Zac in that story. He was a little crazy being a daredevil, impetuous but at the same time extraordinarily

"Silence in company didn't hold the weight and mass of silence alone."

I highly recommend that you read No Less Days first before reading From Sky to Sky. The first book sets the premise and some of the characters in place so that you're not confused by how things pick up at the beginning of this story. The journey of the "elderfolk" or "longevites" continues through third person limited perspective of Zac Wilson who was introduced during the first book. David Galloway who indoctrinated the

The protagonist of this story is introduced as Zac Wilson. The story is told in the third person, and told in the modern day so the characters make frequent use of smartphones, text messaging and social media. Zac is a “people person” and a “YouTube” celebrity. He has a secret shared by a close knit group of friends with the same secret.

The main characters in the book are “longevites” or “Elder folk” who have a seemingly immortal existence and who heal quickly from any fatal wound but otherwise

This is the second book in a speculative fiction series. You will have had to read the first one to make any sense of this one. There was not enough back story to make this novel very readable without having read No Less Days. (I have read and reviewed that book as well.) I had read the first book but it was so long ago I was a bit lost at the beginning.

The framework of the series is that a doctor developed a serum in the mid-nineteenth century that, when administered to someone, allowed them to

There is something about Amanda G. Stevens ability to capture my attention. Her stories don't usually have a lot of high octane suspense that I graviate toward, but she has the ability to capture my attention and beg me to keep flipping pages. Her stories have deep theological questions that majority of humanity wrestle with and allows the characters to deal with them in a realistic way. I really enjoyed the plot in From Sky to Sky. I couldn't wait to keep reading, so I finished the story in one ...more

I say this every time, but every new book Amanda Stevens writes is better than the last. Her characterizations get deeper with ever book, and Zac is quite a character—demanding attention in the most loving of ways. All his strengths and weaknesses are complex and vivid. As much as I love David, I’m never disappointed that Zac has stolen the story. David is still very present and important, though. I appreciate that Stevens digs more out of the characters we already know as she brings brand new ...more

I had a hard time really getting into this read, at times I felt a bit lost, but what a concept living forever, longevities. Maybe starting with the second book in this case is not a good idea.
I did like the concept of trying to help a child, but could not imagine outliving all of my children.
What a plot, you can survive a fall that would kill anyone else, you feel pain, but in a couple of days you are your old self, tongue in cheek on the “old”.

I love the beauty of the language.
I love the concepts expressed in that language.
I love the depth of reality in the characters, in how they face their struggles.
I love how (most) of the characters help each other in their struggles. (I'm looking at you, Moira.)

This book was so good! It hooks you on the first page and keeps you reading to see what happens next. To really get the most out of this book I recommend you read No Less Days first. It has twist and turns and makes you stop and think. If you like Christian sci-fi, you don't want to miss this book! I enjoyed every minute spent reading this book.

My Thoughts
Suggested Beverage Pairing: Milky Way Latte
Characterization
The main character in this book is Zac. The story is told from Zac’s point of view. As an empath, Zac takes on the feelings of everyone around him. He forms bonds to others much more quickly than the average person. At the beginning of the book, Zac doesn’t even discuss the idea of God. Not even when his family, really just friends, try to talk to him about his relationship with God.

I did have a very hard time getting into this book. I was not really sure what was going on and wished I had read the first book in the series. With that being said I wanted to give this book a fair chance. After all it is not the fault of the author that I didn’t read the first book. The story is set in a fantasy type setting which opens the door for imagination to soar with expectations. Over the last year I have come to embrace this genre with guarded anticipation.

I was given an ARC copy by NetGalley to read and review. My review is my honest opinion.

From Sky to Sky is the second book in a series by Amanda G. Stevens. I didn't realize this when I requested the ARC, but then remembered that I had the first book, No Less Days, on my list to read. I read From Sky to Sky even though I hadn't yet read the other. I didn't find this gave me any trouble warming to the characters or story, although I'm pretty sure I learned a few things that would have been

Now I'm usually very generous with my book ratings. I am usually spot on when I choose a book to read that I will enjoy it. Unfortunately, after reading 100 pages, I was still not hooked. I went on Goodreads to see what others were saying and found one review that said it got better after the first half so I kept reading to the end. The story does get better during the second half but I dragged my feet reading through the
