In a desperate measure to survive, previously advanced societies reduce themselves to tribes, finding safety in numbers. Among these tribes are the Wind Walkers, a group of people who took to the skies in balloons to escape the hell below. Bethany is the daughter of chief Roon, and in line to take his place. Fate takes a drastic turn when she finds herself cast out from her tribe. With her fellow exile Gomez, she roams the open land and sets out to stop the tyranny of the tribes before it wipes out what remains of a desolate society.

Author's Note

J.A. Marquez
Wrote this upon the advice of a fellow writer. It may change here and there as the story progresses. For now this is what I have. Also, it has been pointed out to me that it is in the incorrect place. I understand this, however at this moment I am powerless to fix it. It should be at the beginning of the story sometime next week. For clarity, I have not decisively chosen when or where this story is taking place. The time period given here is pertaining to the virus alone. For now, imagine that this is in North America, beginning in the Midwest and traveling to the Pacific Coast. It will at least give you a better visual of the terrain I am describing. As for time, we know that it is long after the virus has destroyed society. Keep that in mind. Many generations have passed, so while it is a futuristic time period there has been a reversion to the ways of ancient civilizations. This is not meant to follow a mold, so if that os how you are reading it I suggest you clear your head and start from the beginning. There will be twists and turns along the way, and probably many revisions. So, please bear with me as I am taking this journey with the readers. Again, any suggestions are welcome. I may not make the changes or I may. It depends on how I feel it pertains to the focus of the story. Thank you for taking the time to read this project. It means the world to me.

Sincerely Yours,

J.A. Marquez
