Place names in The Clearsky Chronicles

A catastrophic event has taken place on Earth. In the mid-21st century, an immense water cloud passes through our solar system, leaving behind oceans of water, part of which still hangs in low Earth orbit as an impenetrable cloak.

The Clearsky Chronicles begins in the 23rd century, on a flooded Earth gripped by an Ice Age that stretches around the globe. It tells the story of the people who are part of the secret plan to eliminate this sunlight blocking cloak and Cerebus: The powerful company that rules Earth and resides in the fortress ark called Rhone.

Many of the characters in The Clearsky Chronicles are given city names. Early on, we meet MEDcadets Odessa, Winnipeg, Lisbon, and Seville. They are taught by their professor Shiraz and his assistant Tralee. For the parents of the freeborn of Rhone, along with the managers of the Human Embryo Development System (HEDS), giving the names of Earth’s drowned cities to infants serves to honor the dead, but also to help focus the learning processes when that child first enters a Gakshu unit.

Anyone experiencing the Gakshu must have a firm grip on who they are. A person who is uncentered is liable to have the information provided to them scattered. Thus, a pre-supplied background, such as details of the given Name City helps the student concentrate on retaining the information provided by the automated instructional unit.

GAME OF THRONES video EVERYBODY WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD

Every year the video taken from cuts from the previous year’s Game Of Thrones is set to Lorde’s Everybody Wants To Rule The World and this is one of them.

There’s some nice touches in this, and the final shot is very appropriate.
Turn up the volume and give a watch

Ya know, there are times when a picture doesn’t do something justice.

That’s why there’s video.

What’s KILL SHOT about?

Probably better to ask what THE CLEARSKY CHRONICLES is about.

What are THE CLEARSKY CHRONICLES about?

Set on a frozen Earth a few hundred years from now, two people from different worlds are destined to meet and have their lives intertwined forever.  Odessa, a MEDcadet on her way to Earthland as part of the half-year procession, witnesses the murder of her surgical professor. Since all Cerubus citizens have location tracking chips embedded along their spines, it won’t be long before the murderers know she saw them. She can’t go to security – they’re the murderers!

Meanwhile, Reynal, a delivery dogsled driver on Earthland, longs to see Clearsky. For 200 years, the sky has been a cold, dark, gray shroud looming over everything he’s ever seen. While Rey has been taught about the Sun, the Moon and the stars, he’s never seen them. Clearsky would not only bring sunlight back, but the warmth the light brings with it. Enough warmth to melt the glaciers surrounding his home near the City.

Rey competes against a genetically modified competitor in the Ice Runner Games. The winner goes to the finals for a chance to win a trip to Rhone – the home of the fortress ark carved out of a mountain by Cerebus.  Later, Rey is sent to retrieve a special package. One that the crew of the Cerebus flagship zeppelin failed to find.

Impeccable world-building and a cast of compelling, heroic characters you will root for in a nail-biting mix of adventure, science, and survival. One of my favorite reads this year!
