Working Title: The Chaos Plagues (The Shapers Trilogy Volume 2)
One-sentence summary: An empire striving to rebuild in the aftermath of a century-long series of global clans wars which have resulted in a rather deadly and inhospitable world, establishes uncertain peace with an extraterrestrial race who could be utilized to permanently repair the damages done, if only mounting civil unrest can be suppressed before all alliances are unraveled.
Genres: Science-fiction, science-fantasy, cyberpunk-fantasy, post-apocalyptic planetary-romance.
Main Setting: Frummev-Vrumev, the mega sprawl that is the capital of this world’s major empire managed and ruled by the Bluedawn royalty. The sprawl is centered around the royal neighborhoods but surrounded by strife-ridden slums and the constant threat of destructive storms. The century of wars between clans has given way to a time of peace fraught with residual tensions and the aftermath of environmental catastrophes.
Case (Casell Bluedawn) is a rebellious princess more interested in adventure in the slums or in the solar system than the constant boredom of attending to duties her parents claim are meant to keep the empire strong and the clans peaceful.
