Skyclyffe by Z. Moss Read by Noah Kershisnik Genre: Middle Grade Science Fiction

Rex Bright enjoys drawing in notebooks and dreaming. He’s thirteen, and his life is ordinary. Until he sees a face in a cloud which changes everything. Rex glimpses the girl from an airplane window while travelling to his aunt and uncle’s farm for the summer. Her features are so perfect, Rex can’t believe she’s only vapor. But Cloud Girl is real. A week later, Skyclyffe, a mysterious airship cloaked in a cumulus, abducts Rex and his family. The captors expect the Brights to live in their flying city forever. And, although he’s kidnapped, Rex loves the craft filled with robots, scientific discoveries, and silvery-white beings. Before long, Rex will be forced to decide whether to escape, or if Skyclyffe and its secret wonders are worth never stepping foot on Earth again. **ebook is Only .99 cents!!**Add to GoodreadsAudible * Amazon * Apple * B&N * Kobo Audio Clip Sample: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWQXWI8h1wg

Z. Moss lives in Stillwater, Minnesota and is currently working on the sequel to Skyclyffe. Two dogs, three cats, and two turtles run the household, including the real-life Radar. Website * Facebook * Twitter * Bookbub * Amazon * GoodreadsAbout the Narrator

Noah Kershisnik has been acting since before he could read. He spent his youth performing Shakespeare plays in a traveling children’s theater, and developed a passion for performance and storytelling. Fortunately he did eventually learn to read, and now spends his time narrating audiobooks as well as acting on camera and stage.

Rex shook on the inside like a mouse who’d realized he was about to become a snake’s lunch.
His mom disembarked first and smiled, encouraging him to follow her. Radar jumped down,
skidding on the concrete floor. Once Old Fart emerged, they stationed themselves in front of the
wing, Dan and Sue flanking Rex and the dog.
Now that Rex could see, three extraordinary things caught his attention: a massive machine
with a long articulating gun, robots zooming by … and a pirate.
Yes, a pirate stood with the others, dressed in black, including a swashbuckling coat and an
outrageous hat. His plumed tricorn was overshadowed only by a beard that radiated from his
chin, twisting into many points so it resembled a wild, upside-down crown. Either the young man
left a play still in his acting wardrobe or had special needs, so the older adults let him walk
around in his ridiculous getup.
The sea rover cleared his throat.
“Welcome aboard, Bert, Susan, Daniel, and Ann—” He halted then looked to the person on his
left. She whispered something into his ear. “Holy catfish! Why wasn’t I informed?” The woman
bowed her head as she muttered more words. “Oh, I see. Well, nothing we can do now.” He
turned back to the Brights and raised his arm in a flourish. “I am Captain Vance Merriweather.”
Could this day get any stranger? How on Earth did the “captain” know who they were? Clues
pointed again to an elaborate reality TV show. Or Rex was at the farm or hadn’t left home, and
this was a Dr.-Pepper-and-supreme-pizza-with-jalapeños-induced dream.
Rex quit wrestling with the mental muddle. Be it hallucination or actuality, his brain and muscles
ached from permanent freak-out. Plus, if these events were occurring in the real world, his mom
would take care of things.
The result liberated him. Rex kicked back, excited to face whatever came next, even if it turned
out to be horrible monsters, tap-dancing buccaneers, or complete humiliation in front of a
laughing audience. Just don’t call him Bert.
A girl donning a cowboy hat, boots, and a T-shirt portraying a horse with a windswept mane
appeared then blended into the background. None of the adults noticed her.
Captain Vance Merriweather carried on with his salutation.
“Welcome to Skyclyffe! I give you a great, hearty greeting. I’m looking forward to getting to know
each of you—but, by living thunder, where are my manners? Let me make introductions.” He
patted a shoulder of the barrel-chested man on his right. “This is our sheriff, Cleve Bowman,
and Noble Berry, our chief Telerayist, is next to him. On my other side,” he turned and bowed to
the two ladies, “I have Philomena Ferguson, head of navigation, and Hazel Kiely, our principal
doctor.”
Hazel was the vaporizer-wielding incarnate of Rex’s old teacher.
“Well, there’s plenty to do and a young lady waiting to have dinner with me, so it’s no time to
lollygag. Daniel, if you please, remove the penknife from your pocket and entrust it to Cleve.” He
waited while the transaction took place. “Thank you. Our scans found no other security issues,
so everything else is shipshape. My crew will get you settled. It’s fantastic to meet you at last.”
The captain gave a wink, a curt bow, and left with a showy swing of feathered hat and swarthy
coat.

What a weirdo.
