• Summary

  • With her super-sensitive sense of smell, sixteen year-old Kaia Smith is used to not fitting in. So when she receives an invitation from Dr. Vadim Grigori to participate in the Grigori Young Scholars Program with its promise that she will meet others like herself, she jumps at the chance. But what is the GYSP really about? Why are the faculty so interested in the story of the Fall of the Watchers? Why are they obsessed with antimony? And what role will GYSP participants like Kaia play in their plans? Antimony means not alone. Togetherness sounds great, but it all depends on whether you join up with the winning side . . . This podcast is based on the Young Adult novel, Antimony, written by Amy Richter and published by Wipf and Stock, copyright 2019. Learn more at https://wipfandstock.com/antimony.html.

Podcast artwork by Joel Richter Reviews of the novel: With compelling characters and relentless revelations, Richter weaves a suspenseful mystery from threads of myth, history, science, and faith. Those who grew up reading Lewis and Rowling will love her band of brilliant high schoolers striving to uncover the dark secrets of Harvard Divinity School and its shadowy masters. Fresh, fun, and not a little frightening, Antimony is a feverish page-turner. —J. Robert King, Author of the Mad Merlin Trilogy​ This is one of the best novels I've read in a long time. It was a beautifully written, insanely entertaining, thought-provoking story that sucked me in from page one. —Jamie McLaughlin, television writer and producer​ Crisply and intelligently written with a deeply creative engagement with Scripture, Amy Richter’s Antinomy is an entirely fresh take on religious fiction. Her graceful, muscular prose is so evocative and precise sometimes that to read this book is to have a full-bodied sensory experience. Antinomy’s sympathetic cast of young characters mingles with figures and stories from Jewish apocalyptic, the Hebrew Bible, and the Gospels for a delightfully unexpected, time-bending story of memory, mystery, and friendship.—Jennifer Newsome Martin, University of Notre Dame
