Terminus X, Part One
Terminus X is a story that is based on an unprecedented disaster when the sun ejects a massive cloud of charged plasma particles and lethal radiation. When the solar wind reaches Earth, it destroys electronics and heats the Earth's core to a point the planet is shattered into fragments around its molten core and moon One hundred years later society slowly reorganizes itself, forcing a government system onto the survivors: Xigen and HumaniX. Any leftover survivors are then placed into a five-tiered cast system consisting of: Priests, Communicators, Warriors, Outcasts, and Dregs.
HumaniX government is advanced in technology and its citizens live in huge sky cities that travel through the gravity wakes between the moon and Earth's molten core. The Xigen are a lesser-advanced government, which lives on the floating landmasses, struggling to survive. The two governments have been constantly at war over water, food and land.
Struggling in a hostile environment, Travis Medwin and Nelson Porter conduct illegal deals and eventually join a dangerous race that could mark the outcome of their lives. But after being dragged into a conflict between two warring factions, their goal suddenly changes to that of survival as they fight to discover the truth that's plaguing the struggling remains of humanity.
Shane Ward used to spend most of his time dreaming up stories and tales that deserve to be out there for all to read. He's been writing for many years now, his first project was fan fiction and he can still be found writing stories for his favourite TV shows, but he has now moved on to telling personal stories and attempting to become a professional novelist.
He lives in a small bucolic town on the outskirts of London where he uses his spare time to write and develop stories. He has had some success and is now attempting a novel.
His chosen genre is Science Fiction and he had written many stories in this field. His preferred storytelling is similar to that of David Baldacci and John Gresham with a hit of Kevin J Anderson.
His story offers adventure, with a cocktail of mystery and crime. He creates creatures from the depths of his mind and describes scenes in detail that will inspire your imagination, but will not blanket the reader in a sea of words. His stories are quick, easy to read and with minimum jargon. Shane's goal is to tell a story, not impress with his writing technique.
