"A wonderfully entertaining debut novel."–Compelling Science Fiction
Reclaimed Earth Book 1
Car-En, a ringstation anthropologist on her first Earth field assignment, observes a Viking-like village in the Harz mountains. As Car-En secretly observes the Happdal villagers, she begins to see them as more than research subjects (especially Esper, a handsome bow-hunter). When Esper’s sister is taken by an otherworldly sword-wielding white-haired man, she can no longer stand by as a passive witness. Knowing the decision might end her career, she cuts off communication with her advisor and pursues the abductor into the mountains.

"The Sky Woman scores on so many points. Great characters (I include the ostensible bad guy Adrian), several intertwining complex stories, a highly imaginative future Earth for a setting and the possibility of exciting future instalments."
– Whiskey With My Book
"The Sky Woman is an interesting blend of historical and sci-fi elements, that really brings a rather unique voice to the genre."
"Moyer has created an incredible and detailed vision of Earth's future that I found original and refreshing."
"A well-told story reminiscent of Ursula K. LeGuin or Karen Lord, The Sky Woman is definitely worth picking up."
