After generations of isolation, a small community has deteriorated into stifling sameness. Determined to escape its oppression, Seren explores the surrounding forbidden territory, only to discover that she and her people face imminent destruction.
“McElheran has created a dark, mysterious world hurtling towards promise or oblivion with characters we care about. Seren, a scribe, dreams of seeing mythical stars and fleeing from a society repressed for a hundred generations. But salvation can come from an unexpected direction. Mystery and dark intrigue keeps the reader turning the pages.”
James C. Glass,

“McElheran’s fast-paced and compelling prose creates a fully realized future environment. I guarantee you’ll find yourself rooting for Seren as everything she knows about the world and her place in it is stripped away from her in rapid and emotionally devastating succession, while a doomsday clock ticks inexorably toward a catastrophe only Seren can prevent. Doubt Not the Stars is a lively and engaging story.”
