BENEATH WHICH SKY

At that very moment, the sun exploded. The supernova ripped across the remains of the sun's companion star, across the moon, across the planet. When the blast finally cleared, only a small, glowing pulsar remained. There was no trace of the once-thriving world.

      In this first installment of the Otherworld series, you will meet one of four people who are destined to save two worlds.
