The universe has reached its eventual heat death and all molecular movement has ceased. But something has taken all the life forms that had ever existed and reached a certain level of intelligence, and placed them around the last star in a latticework sphere. When a virus, universally deadly, is set free in one of the more primitive worlds a small group must make their way to the central world to keep their world from being destroyed to stop the virus.
Targeted Age Group:: 14 to adult
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I've always enjoyed epic tales, with great men and great women daring to accomplish great deeds. The catalyst for this story was a picture of a city under glass with roads leading away from it to other cities, also under glass. I began to wonder what it would be like if whole worlds were linked in a lattice around a star, and what would the purpose of that be.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Ariella is the primary protagonist. She is a thirteen year old girl from a mostly water planet. I wanted someone who is somewhat of a typical thirteen year old, but is shown to be very intelligent, and resourceful. There are a number of other characters that are based, loosely, on life experience I've had with certain personality types.
She let go and the creature swam off, but before diving it turned back and stared at her. They were dumb creatures, but some thought them to be mystical, and there were those who claimed they were the reincarnated spirits of their dead ancestors. She wasn’t too sure about that, but staring into its eyes for a moment she saw more than just a dumb creature. He seemed to be regarding her as much as she was regarding him, and she couldn’t help but wonder just how intelligent it might be.
“How old are you Mr. Hardtop? How much of the universe have you seen?” In truth, no one knew how long they lived, or how intelligent they were. It was said they had been to the world's end, a place where none of her people had ever ventured. “Thank you,” she said, and the creature turned and disappeared into the water.
Allon came popping up next to her. “You let go didn't you?”
For a moment she was oblivious, then she turned to notice him.
“Never mind,” he said with a smile.
She suddenly realized how close they were. His face was inches from hers and her heart raced. Kiss me, she thought. For a moment it looked as if it were about to happen when something came into their peripheral vision. They both turned to watch a falling star. It was particularly bright, and long lasting.
