In Between Seasons (The Fall, #1)


At eighteen there is one thing Kate Ericson is certain of—the world is at war and has been since she was two years old. That was when her father pulled her family and a group of close friends to a God forsaken place in the middle of nowhere. For Kate there is no escape from the sea of lies she is drowning in until her world collides with Hunter Marks—the son of her father’s biggest opponent. An opponent that Kate didn’t even know existed. What Hunter kidnaps Kate for, and what her family will try to kill her to keep secret, is a knowledge that she doesn’t have. Now Kate’s innocence seems to becoming undone at the seams of reality. Hunter then finds himself fighting the hopelessness that is creeping into the edges of her heart as she learns more about the corruption that has devoured their lives. As Hunter and Kate forge a strong and unique relationship it becomes clear that their love is something that the bureaucracy never expected, and that Hunter’s father will do whatever he can to destroy it. Hunter believes he must sacrifice love in order to teach Kate that the world’s deadliest weapon is her. Hunter and Kate will have to find the strength to rise above a deception that is so great, even the ones who created it don’t realize its depth.

Praise for In Between Seasons

“This is an intriguing debut novel. I’ve just started reading dystopian fiction and “In Between Seasons” had me thinking, wondering, rooting for Kate, and later Hunter. Ms. Giovanni gives nothing away with her realistic voice and the plot. As you read, you are given glimpses of what has happened to the world, and just who really is the enemy, and who is in charge. There was a twist at the end that I didn’t see coming, and it made me want a sequel right now. The tension between the characters keeps you guessing and you do have to wonder about those ladies on the sofa and what they have to do with the world situation. Even better, nothing is spelled out – the story unfolds in action and dialogue…”

- Ellen L. Ekstrom, Author

“…It reminded me very much of an Underground Railroad or Nazi resistance story which I have always found fascinating to read… Ms. Giovanni does a great job of also introducing great secondary characters (Rob, Mara, Kate’s family) that leave you wanting to know more about their background and hoping for more stories about them. Ms. Giovanni does a great job of world building her description of not only the different tribes but also the anti-tribes. I really enjoyed the book and am definitely reading anything else the author writes. I hope she writes more soon.”

-Jo Anne, Dallas, TX

“Cassandra Giovanni has, if not invented a new genre here, certainly revived a little-used one – the Post-Apocalyptic Romance… The tension created by the budding romance parallels the increasing tension of the story plot, as things grow ever more dangerous around them and they grow more desperate to escape to Freedom. There is the fear of being “found out”, of their humanity and realness being exposed as well, two things which are not looked on favorably in their society. There are several surprises interspersed throughout the book, as well as two big surprises at the end (which I won’t give away) which add to the richness of the story and make you realize there is far more going on in this story and its world than meets the eye…In Between Seasons has earned the coveted 5 Stars! Highly Recommended.”
