Threatening Sky by S. Jade Castleton

A big welcome to Kiwi author S. Jade Castleton as she celebrates the recent release of her new book Threatening Sky.


‘I was just talking to dad.’

This is the last thing Owen expects to hear on a quiet Spring afternoon. He and his brothers and sisters presumed long ago that their father was dead. Why else would there be no contact from him in over a year?

But Mr Tremayne is no ghost. He wants back as if he never left, and Owen discovers that there are far worse words to hear. Words that shake his hard-won confidence and resilience, jeopardise his partnership with Andrew, and disrupt his siblings’ settled lives.

With everything he won in Mackerel Sky at risk of being taken away, Owen must dig deep to overcome self-doubt, despair, and fresh secrets. Andrew’s love gives him strength, but will it be enough to get him through these tough times?

Threatening Sky is a battle for keeps: peace, security, life, love.

And in case you missed book 1 in the series:

Who knew that naming a cloud formation could be so powerful?

Owen didn’t. But when Andrew Gordon, his boss, mentor, and the man he’s sleeping with for quick money, puts a name to his favourite clouds, Owen’s attraction to Andrew becomes difficult to deny.

Except, with sleep disrupted by nightmares, past secrets and lies that might yet tear his family apart, and a brother who cannot forgive or accept, can Owen summon the courage to act on his feelings and admit he’s fallen in love?

Even if he’s not gay.

Mackerel Sky is a tale of recovery and romance coaxed from a tangle of desperation, lies, and personal demons.

About the Author
Jade lives in New Zealand but most of her characters don’t. She’s trying to encourage a change there.

She has been writing since she could make letters with a pencil, though Threatening Sky is only the second novel actually FINISHED. She’s now looking forward to progressing the stories of other characters who’ve been keeping her company over the years, whether they be short stories or novels.

Jade is trying to be more consistent with blogging on her website (where you can meet a couple of her other characters), and she welcomes contact through email. (She has a twitter account but is even slower tweeting than blogging.)

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at https://annebarwell.wordpress.com
