In a not-so-distant future, a freak particle storm has landed botanist Dr. Maeve Lindholm on an idyllic yet strange parallel Earth, with no way back home.

Here, two moons rule society, and nature outshines science. But just like her own climate ravaged planet, this verdant Earth has a sinister side. Children are rare. Humans must serve a purpose or pay an unthinkable price. Astronomer Zuzi battles this underlying darkness every day—just like Maeve did at home. Both women are fighters, and both face a choice: forge new paths, or save the worlds they’ve always known? Maeve will have to decide, and fast—because she’s fighting for more than just herself.

“I happily burrowed into these worlds and their questions and how they mirror so many of our questions and worries these days, all of it brought to life so vividly and alluringly in story and image. A great combination of big issues and appealing tiny zesty detail.”—Aimee Bender (The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, The Girl in the Flammable Skirt)

Shifting Earth is a necessary reminder that it’s not our future under discussion, but our futures. A very engaging and intelligent read.”—Mark Russell (Second Coming, Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles)  

“Escaping a dying planet could be the end of the story. But in this beautiful tale of hope and science powering through unimaginable loss, it’s only the beginning.”—Jody Houser (Stranger Things, Doctor Who)

Shifting Earth is a gorgeous and moving adventure through the end of the world—through the end of worlds—powered by the hope that every endangered planet might still be saved. What will it take? Belief and science, love and beauty, luck and perseverance—all of which Shifting Earth has in unlimited supply.”—Matt Bell (Appleseed, How They Were Found)

Shifting Earth takes seriously the call for science fiction to imagine different and better futures, while having the intellectual honesty to consider them critically. It asks not how we reach a future without sacrifice, but what sacrifices we are willing to make.”—Madeline Ashby (VN, iD, Company Town)

Shifting Earth made me think about sustainability and the future in a new way. You might just find yourself returning from this gorgeous journey with the seeds of new ideas and a new commitment to building a better world.”—Charlie Jane Anders (All the Birds in the Sky, The City in the Middle of the Night)
