Against all odds, Orah and Nathaniel have found the keep and revealed the truth about the darkness, initiating what they hoped would be a new age of enlightenment. But the people were more set in their ways than anticipated, and a faction of vicars whispered in their ears, urging a return to traditional ways.
Desperate to keep their movement alive, Orah and Nathaniel cross the ocean to seek the living descendants of the keepmasters' kin. Those they find on the distant shore are both more and less advanced than expected.
The seekers become caught between the two sides, and face the challenge of bringing them together to make a better world. The prize: a chance to bring home miracles and a more promising future for their people. But if they fail this time, they risk not a stoning but losing themselves in the twilight of a never-ending dream.
Be sure to start with the first book in this series, the multiple award-winning The Children of Darkness. And don't miss David's award-winning speculative saga, The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky.

I would listen to another book Erin deWard narrates, but I'm not too sure about another one written by David Litwack. The story here has a similar problem as the first one in the 'Seekers' saga had, that being that the perceived universe is just too small, and everything happens way to conveniently.
The two main protagonists cross the ocean after hundreds of years of separation and just happen to crash right next to a settlement of people who are in conflict, and that conflict just happened to happen within a few days of their arrival and perfectly fit into their quest.
Not sure, maybe if it is not targeted at a young adult audience who do not care about the plot developing way to conveniently.
She performed very well.

This is a great continuation to the series. The book is well written and the narrator did a great job. I can't wait for the next book to come out.

The Stuff of the Stars is turning into a great series. Book two felt a lot heavier on the Sci-Fi than book one, because there’s a lot more technology, computers, robots, etc. It makes for an interesting series with book one feeling more like a dystopian future fantasy/Sci-Fi blend, and it makes me wonder where the author will take this series for book three. A lot of the characters were relatable for me, and with the great job that narrator did, I found myself really connecting with the characters. It seems like the narrator did a much better job keeping her speaking pace steady in this book as well. Lastly, she has a fantastic singing voice. I look forward to listening to book three once it’s released.
