Horizon

Ahiluna loved to gaze at the horizon. She used to spend hours laying in a high grass cradle, while over the mountain chain arose a triumvirate of moons: Crassus marked with craters, witnesses of a rough past, Caesar dragging a blue feathery curtain, and Pompey, Ahiluna’s favorite, red and sedate. Ahiluna’s mother enjoyed carving boulders. Her father loved working on tunnels reaching the planet’s centre. Ahiluna hated dust and noise. She would talk to her parents about the beauty of untouched nature, complete silence and transparent air in which she can float as if in a dream, free from the clutches of gravity.

At the end of the day she was moved by the voices of her parents, luring her towards the balcony facing the sunset of Rigel. The red sun was preparing to dive into a green sea. Ahiluna started running to the house under the decorated cliff. She was excited – she will turn seven in seven minutes…

Not far from the porch, she almost stepped on a bird. The bluebird, whose wings were entangled in plants, was shivering and whispering a sad melody. Ahiluna softly embraced the bird. “What happened, little flyer?” She picked her up and brought the bird into the house.

“Look”, she said to her father, who was cleaning a solar panel.

“Place her on my desk”, he said. He took a box out of a large drawer. “Our species and birds have a mutual beginning, as everything else on this planet.” From the box he emerged a translucent needle with a curved tip. “And the same healing methods”, he carefully poked the bluebird right under her beak.

The bird livened, changed her melody and, a few moments later flew out of the window. The girl smiled.

“What did you do?”

“A reset. Happy birthday, Ahiluna.”

Kelsey Miller: Page turner set in a gritty future. Loads of flavor and depth that makes the pages fly by until like me you are at the end of the book wanting more!The world is developed to the point it begs more stories set in this harsh reality. More adventures from Daryl and thr crew.

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

Pablo Rojas: Love the story, at the end it is a western story, simple, yet giving hints and pieces of the situation that is happening all over ravencroft´s universe. easy to read and always keeping with the main stream story I want to keep reading about, Olafson´s adventures.

Oru Manna: Within this tale is a cast of characters with intensely unique voices and personas; each one radiating their own desires so clearly, you would think they were all written by different people. Their behaviors, their speech patterns, even their thoughts are so independent of one another, it really ...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Sara Grover: Being that this is your first story and I assume first draft, a lot of little mistakes are common, we all have made them; little things like your instead of you're, missed capitalization, missing punctuation, etc. As for the plot, I have a lot of questions and I did leave comments on certain sect...

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real.

ericaporamoralcine: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.
