The Way Life Was Forever
Sun-dwellers are foul monsters that eat a human’s flesh from their bones…or so sixteen-year-old Lyra has always been taught. To keep their citizens safe, her colony seals itself into the vaults by day.
Moonwalkers are horrible beasts that feed on the blood of men…at least, that is what Perseus was told. The only sure survival for his people is to lock themselves into their repositories each night.
Both labeled as undesirable by their respective kinds, a fated meeting in the forbidden forest offers Lyra and Perseus an unexpected chance at happiness. If they can overcome their own prejudices and discover the truth about one another before time runs out.
Can the sun-dweller and the moonwalker learn that when reality is distorted by hate and terror sometimes the only thing to truly fear is fear itself?
I will admit it was the cover of this book that first caught my eye. When I read the summary I thought, well that could be interesting. I was not disappointed. This is a very short story and I felt like I had just started it when all of a sudden it was over, but don’t let that fool you. It is very descriptive and you learn a lot about our main characters in a short span of time.
Essentially there are two groups of people, the Sun-Dwellers and the MoonWalkers and each believe the other will kill them. When it is time for one faction to come out the other one seals themselves up in there vault like homes. If you are not back when it is time to seal the vaults you are left outside. Lyra gets left outside when the day comes and that is when she meets Perseus.
I don’t want to say much more or I will give the whole story away, but this is a free short story on Amazon and I enjoyed it. It was well worth the little time it took to read it.
