Book Description

 

ALICE is not a girl.

When she arrives, she will save everyone on Earth from certain death.

Or she will kill them all.


What remains of mankind clings to the high ground of a world flooded and trapped in a perpetual ice age. Cerebus Command, the rulers of Rhone, the fortress ark storing Earth's carefully preserved biomes, wants nothing to do with the plan to break the shroud hanging above the planet.


But any good plan will have a secret backup… just in case.


Odessa, a nineteen-year-old MEDcadet, witnesses the murder of her anatomy professor and finds herself in fear for her life. Fighting recurring panic attacks while sailing from her home on Rhone across the Eastern Sea to Earthland, Odessa manages to keep what she's seen to herself. To her horror, however, when the vessel docks, she and her podmates—two who, like Odessa, are genetically engineered—are arrested by the very security force who committed the crime.


Reynal Królik, an eighteen-year-old trading post sled driver on Earthland, longs for Clearsky, though he's never known anything but the gray shroud that darkens the atmosphere. After he and his fellow messengers foil an assassin's attempt to kill Odessa and her companions, he whisks them away, only to discover he and she are tangled up on opposite sides of the same secret mission to slam an asteroid into Earth—one for which Rey will be the asteroid driver.


Rey and Odessa—along with their friends and a dangerous outlaw—race against time to escape Earthland, but can they evade Cerebus' flagship war zeppelin in order for Rey to complete the task for which he was destined? A destiny Odessa was taught to deny and will fight to prevent?


ICEFALL is the first book in the Clearsky Chronicles, an Earth-based science fiction adventure set in a future beset by a catastrophic climate change. For a nail-biting mix of adventure, science, and survival, pick up ICEFALL today and explore this exciting new world!
