A Venusian Odyssey!
To its people, Venus is a bright hemisphere in an unending ocean of cold darkness. To Hunter, it is the Land of Never Change, its civilization as static as its eternally light gray sky. He outfits an expedition to give his people new knowledge of their world, and makes some shocking discoveries. Venus is a sphere, with a light side and a dark side. And above the sky are points of light, one a brilliant blue-white. Hunter refits his ship to withstand the vacuum, and sets out to explore Venus's neighbor in space. It's an odd world, its blue skies and blinding orb giving way to darkness, and vice versa. A troubled world, convulsed in global war. A world called Earth.

Original review posted @ http://sandrathebookworm.blogspot.com/2015/12/between-worlds.html I was sent this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. Wow, I didn't think it was possible to love this book more than the first and yet I did! Michael's secret is finally out the whole world knows he can see ghosts. Luke is contacted by the owner of Stanton Hall Manor a site he has been dying to investigate, but the owner has one condition to allow them to shoot in the Manor, Michael has to be present. So, Michael finally agrees to join Cemetery Tours, but what they thought was going to be one of the best episodes they have ever filmed turns out to be one of the worst for the crew. This book was so good and creepy, I freaking loved it. One thing that I have noticed and loved about Jacqueline's writing is that she can make you laugh out loud, cry and be terrified all in one chapter and I love it not many authors can do that; she also writes very likable characters I fell in love with them all over again even the new ones. I really enjoyed that there was more Luke and Brink in this book they crack me up and I just can't get enough of those two. Michael's and Kate's character development in this book was very well written especially Michael! I really liked the way he is starting to accept his gift and standing up for it and for himself. I really loved the story about Sterling and his wife it made the book feel all that more real, it was like I was there with the crew experiencing everything. If you have yet to pick up this series, what are you waiting for? It's so good and I can’t wait to read the third book! -SandraTheBookWorm
This is the sequel to Ms. Smith's outstanding debut novel, "Cemetery Tours." It is a pleasure to write that the sequel is equally riveting, fun and charming as the first book. You will find yourself turning the pages anxious to find the next piece of the puzzle, but hoping it never ends. But since it does end, I do hope, Ms. Smith, that you will write another book in the series. Bravo, and I look forward to the next one!
