Under the Purple Sky is a coming-of-age epic fantasy that spans the vast eternity of space and time, across millennia and worlds and generations. Daleah is a young disciple in her teens, an innocent child of the Light, who travels to a high place for her spiritual studies. She learns from the Elders, a race of ancients, one of whom is an ancestor, and encounters other teens like herself. Together, they embark on a spiritual adventure where they stumble into the unexpected. They see glimpses of an unusual world, of something unpleasant that has eluded their people. Will these glimpses be a hindrance to their quest for spiritual maturity? Or will they gain much sought after wisdom? In another faraway world, shrouded in darkness, lives another teenager. Haro faces an unexpected discovery and embarks with his friends on an adventure in their search for a hidden place. The perspective shifts between these two groups as they face the same challenges under different circumstances. And the ancient Oracles of Zion are their best link for holding on to the Spirit of the Holy One.

The novel is a mixture of several genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Spirituality, Supernatural.  Some people would call it Speculative Fiction.  It has a total word count of 75,676 words and is about 260 pages long.  
Because it is a genre much in demand by parents of teens, who would like to give their children better choices than the secular fantasy literature world of witches, wizards, vampires, and werewolves. The setting of the novel happens in both utopian and dystopian worlds, written as a long parable that teaches Biblical wisdom in the style of today’s literature. In the author's preface of the book, V. C. Cheney mentions that she wrote the book “to uplift us and give us hope for the future. The Scriptures is not all gloom and doom. We should do as the prophets of old, who often gave people warnings balanced with hope for the future.” 
There is no comparable novel or author. The novel, Under the Purple Sky, is a mixture of:
  • For Youth, CS Lewis, The Narnia Chronicles (otherworldly fantasy adventure)
  • Madeleine L’Engle, A Wrinkle in Time (imaginative, with stronger Biblical emphasis)
  • Jonathan Cahn, The Oracle (Jewish parable style, teacher/student dialogues, with a Messianic Jewish perspective)
  • Frank Peretti, This Present Darkness (with some supernatural elements, spiritual warfare, and demonic characters)
Some people would call this mixture of different genres “Speculative Fiction.”
