Praise for the Soaring Through Stars & the Swimming Through Clouds Trilogy 

“It is the rare author who can end an emotionally compelling trilogy with the same resounding truth from which it was formed, but turned inside out. In Soaring through Stars, Rajdeep Paulus does exactly that. Crafting her characters’ inner growth at a believable and often heart-wrenching pace across the series, this final book extends an exquisite peace to hearts where extreme fear used to dwell. This series should be on the shelves of every American high school. Soaring through Stars is a beautiful, perfect ending to a truly exceptional series… Don’t miss this one.” 
~Serena Chase, USA Today’s Happy Ever After blog, author of The Ryn 

“Rajdeep Paulus writes young adult fiction with a new kind of hero…Despair and cruelty haunt its pages. Raj’s most heroic characters find the strength to be compassionate at moments when it would be much easier to stand by and do nothing.” 
~Amazon Author Success Story 

“Tough and touching, resilient and raw—Rajdeep Paulus has crafted a story of love and abuse with the deft touch of a than real and she never averts her pen from the realities that face far too many women and children. “ 
~ Tosca Lee, NY Times Bestselling Author of Havah and The Books of Mortals series with Ted Dekker 

“Deep, sometimes quite dark, and very emotional YA story.” ~Once Upon a YA Book Blog 

“In Soaring Through Stars, Rajdeep Paulus does what few authors of series are able to do—she stays fiercely loyal to her characters and allows them to find the natural ending to an emotional journey. Something beautiful is created where there had only been chaos.” 
--Laura Anderson Kurk, author of Glass Girl and Perfect Glass 

"This. Book. . . Nothing has made my heart ache yet sing as strong as Rajdeep Paulus' spectacular, climactic, SOARING THROUGH STARS." 
~ Jennifer Murgia, author of FOREST OF WHISPERS, BETWEEN THESE LINES. 

“A raw and heart-wrenching account of abuse, human trafficking, and enduring hope, the Swimming Through Clouds series is an incredible story of the strength of true love and the power of courage. Talia, Lagan, and Jesse will sneak into your heart and stay there long after you read the last line.” 
~Amalie Howard, bestselling IndieNext author of Alpha Goddess 

In Soaring Through Stars, the final book in her trilogy, Rajdeep Paulus displays an almost magical ability to portray dark and haunting subject matter with her descriptively lyrical style. Her poetic prose not only manages to bring her characters’ devastating struggles vividly to life, but also their singular grace and courage as they fight to wrestle hope from the rubble of epic loss, grief, and trauma. 
~ Lisa Amowitz, Breaking Glass, Vision, and Until Beth (Fall 2015)
