This stirring coming-of-age novel presents issues such as domestic violence and emotional abuse, as well as cultural and sexual identity.

Adoni is a teenaged girl who lives in a downtown apartment with her mother, an emotionally and physically abusive woman who drinks too much. One evening, Adoni finds herself drawn to the enchanting voice of a man singing in the alley beneath her bedroom window. The man, Ritter, brings Adoni to the Welcome, a northern colony of the In-Between world, where young people who have been rescued from harm are kept safe by their sworn immortal protectors, the pipers.

But when the Welcome is attacked by changelings--led by the vicious and charismatic Sylvester--and a centuries-old grudge spills over the edge and threatens to destroy the colony and everyone who lives there, Adoni must find the strength and courage within to stop the oncoming war.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In The Voices In-Between, Challenger has created a brilliant urban fantasy haunted by a melody line and dark secrets that cut beneath reality. Her words sing on the page, weaving a world that draws you in with its claws and refuses to let go. Captivating, intriguing, and most of all musical, Challenger sets the stage for a series whose insistent voice will continue whispering into your ear long after you've turned the final page." --S.M. Beiko, author, The Lake and the Library
"Brave, wrenching, loving, wise--and absolutely breathtaking. I have not read a debut more clear-eyed and heartfelt than The Voices In-Between." --Leah Bobet, author, Above
"The Voices in Between snatched my attention straight away with its unusual, atypical heroine: fourteen year-old Adoni could have been drawn out from a bleak social documentary. I found the book beautifully written and smart." --Angelique, maplebooks.ca
"The descriptive passages are lyrical and make powerful use of metaphor." --Patricia Jermey, Resource Links
"The Voices in Between is an ambitious and sophisticated fantasy, written with evocative, brooding beauty. Challenger makes words on a page caress the ear like music or jar against the soul with a chilling and suspenseful grip." --Ellen Wu, CM: Canadian Review of Materials
