Summary: There is nothing darker than the woods, until you meet your worst fear. Jackson Bower has a lot on his mind lately. His younger brother hasn’t been the same since his mother’s death. His father’s drinking is out of control. Then there’s Jackson’s girlfriend and the grief that ties them together even as it threatens to drive them apart. He distances himself, hoping for a little perspective at the family lodge. But when their father gets drunk and dangerous, he and his brother escape into the woods. Night creeps in, and the rains come fast. Artie slips down a ravine. He’s wounded and the brothers seek shelter in a cave, only to find someone else already taking refuge there. A desperate man with plans to destroy their town. Jackson must get him and his wounded brother out of the cave and over the mountain to warn everyone in time. Without getting them both killed first.

We asked K.L. Hallam what gave her the inspiration to write such a unique story like this one, and here's what she said!

My sons! I wanted to write something they would read. They love stories about survival and nature, and if there’s a deranged villain all the better. And they like it dark. It was my teenaged son, who actually convinced me to keep writing this book after reading the early pages. He’s picky and holds nothing back as far as critique, believe me. 


I started with writing the characters. About the protective love one brother has for his younger brother and the isolation they both feel, five years after their mother’s death, and they’re emotionally absent father. The rains came and I followed the stream while the story fell onto the pages. Many revisions later … The Unmoving Sky was born.

  3. I would be terrified in the woods all night! I probably wouldn't sleep....would just crouch down by a tree and pray all night.
