A thrilling genre-bending saga about six extraordinary people whose fates become intertwined on an Earth far different from their own. Without warning, the world comes to an end for Hannah and Amanda Given. The sky looms frigid white. The electricity falters. Airplanes everywhere crash to the ground. But the Givens are saved by mysterious strangers, three fearsome and beautiful beings who force a plain silver bracelet onto each sister' s wrist. Within moments, the sky comes down in a crushing sheet of light and everything around them is gone. Shielded from the devastation by their silver adornments, the Givens suddenly find themselves elsewhere, a strange new Earth where restaurants move through the air like flying saucers and the fabric of time is manipulated by common household appliances. Soon Hannah and Amanda are joined by four other survivors from their world-- a mordant cartoonist, a shy teenage girl, a brilliant young Australian, and a troubled ex-prodigy. Hunted by enemies they never knew they had and afflicted with temporal abilities they never wanted, the sisters and their companions begin a cross-country journey to find the one man who can save them-- before time runs out. Brilliantly imagined and electrifying from the first page, The Flight of the Silvers is the thrilling first book in a genre-bending new series.

"It's never easy being strangers in a strange land. That's the pointed message that Rich Orlow imparts in his skilled narration of this riveting novel. The Silvers are a group of six (two sisters, a shy teen girl, a brilliant Aussie teen, a sarcastic cartoonist, and a troubled ex-prodigy), selected by three near-deities, who wake up to find themselves in a new world and discover they possess weird abilities related to time. Orlow effectively captures the wide range of emotions of this confused, battered sextet as well as their relentless pursuers. His propulsive pacing carries listeners right to the end of this first book in the new series. The production is a winning combination of story and narrator. D.E.M. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
