Book Details


Clouds clear from the sky, dispersing as if being pushed by some invisible hand. The sun shines through the atmosphere of Earth and onto the grassy plains where a rabbit nibbles at grass. Far from the other side of the moon and never directly visible from Earth, Asthekia is still shrouded in clouds. Like a damp gray blanket, the ceiling of massive condensation looms over a nearly deserted meadow. In the middle of the meadow sits a small mammal, much like a rabbit, but with much shorter ears, and a long tail, swishing in a cat-like manner. It also nibbles grass.
