Betrayed by her avaricious sister, stolen by a vicious tyrant, Keren struggles to protect those she loves from Nimr-Rada.
The Mighty Hunter, Great King Nimr-Rada, is determined to have Sharah and Keren, cherished descendants of Annah and Shem, join his plans to challenge the Most High. Sharah is all too willing to fulfill her glorious role, but Keren will not be so easily persuaded.
Nimr-Rada's promises of freedom will only bring his people enslavement to a false god and to Nimr-Rada Himself. Keren must risk death to defy the Great King and end his tyranny.
Praise for the first book in Kacy's The Genesis Trilogy:
The Heavens Before is full of incredible characters living during an incredible time period. It's a compelling story of one woman's choices between those contrasts. Highly recommended.
-Tim Frankovich, Christian Fiction Review
This novel breathes life into the familiar story of Noah's ark. This book is an engaging and informative read for anyone interested in the Flood, but many will also enjoy the insightful characters.

It has been years since Noakh and his family survived the Great Destruction. One day some of his descendants come to him because they fear their new daughter, Sharah, is ill. When the ancient ones look at her they are astonished. The girl has pale translucent skin, blue eyes, and golden hair. A few years later her sister, Karan, called Keren, is born with dark skin and hair but pale eyes. As they grow up they hear constantly tales of the great Nimr-Rada, whom the people are calling 'He Who Lifts The Skies' they believe he has powers that rival the Most High. When Nimr-Rada, the Great King, hears of Sharah and Keren he wants to use them in his plans to challenge the Most High. Sharah is only too willing to fill this role, but Keren will not abandon her God. Nimr-Rada offers the people freedom from the Most High's judgement. Keren must risk death to defy the Great King and end his reign.
