Vango
Between Sky and Earth

author: Timothée de Fombelle

In a world between wars, a young man on the cusp of taking priestly vows is suddenly made a fugitive. Fleeing the accusations of police who blame him for a murder, as well as more sinister forces with darker intentions, Vango attempts to trace the secrets of his shrouded past and prove his innocence before all is lost. Centered on a mysterious, unforgettable, and romantic protagonist, Vango tells a thrilling story sure to captivate lovers of daring escapades and subversive heroes.

“Beautiful writing, intricate plotting, and breathless reveals — plus several plucky female leads — make this a must-read.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
