Chapter 1

The elders tell stories of these things called trees. They were colored green and almost over every square mile of the earth was covered with them. They say there were different kinds of trees, some with leaves and some with needles. Many could change color as bright as fire, so said the times before. The elders also say that the ocean was once blue and warm, not frozen in a barren sheet of death.

Before, the world had been alive.

From the ridge of a mountainous snow dune, Puck watched over the valley below. It was boneyard of capsized tankers and skeletons of numerous ships. The butt end of a jumbo jet had swept inland and half buried under ice.

One massive, skeletal structure that stood out over than the rest was an aircraft carrier fused to the top of a petrified swell. It had been flash-frozen decades ago. It looked as if it could tip over and plummet, teetering on the edge hundreds of feet in the sky.

This aircraft carrier was impossible to reach even though many had tried. It was a child’s game to dare each other to climb the spine of the wave and touch the haul.

No one had ever gotten halfway since the incline was so steep.

Puck’s gaze scoured the horizon through a flurry of gray flakes, the hazy light sunk beyond the swell as the sun set. Even at high-noon, the sun’s light was always cold and remained a dull sphere behind a perpetual storm.

The scarf around his face almost stuck to his lips as his breath froze against it. As night crept in the time left to be on the surface shortened.

He turned his back to the ghostly wreck yard. Frost crusted towers were the gravestones of Old Francisco, half buried under a long-dead tsunami.

Puck had listened to countless stories of how the waters flooded the world, and about the first Tempest that clutched the planet almost a century ago. But his favorite tales were always about trees.

Emma Tooth: Hope the test of books as good as this

Summers: all the foreshadowing, hints makes me so curious! Been long since a plot caught my attention.

Dragon mama: This story is almost written as if it was translated to English from a different language but something is lost in translation. There are many grammatical mistakes and constant misspelling of the main characters names. The plot is interesting and it could be a great book but needs intensive editing.

dmcallistersinger: It was an interesting story. However, it reads more like an outline than a complete book. There needs to be more character development, depth and explanation. The idea is there, but it needs refinement and spelling and punctuation editing.

Rajeshwari: I liked the idea of beauty and the four beasts!

Ladykia : Great story would definitely recommend to everyone

ccsoutham: Great plot, character development, and structuring, but needs editing for gramma; that's easy- it is everything else that really makes a great sci-fi novel, and I can't put this one down. I would be more than happy to proof read your work! ccsoutham@yahoo.com.
