Everything is dead or dying. How can anyone live in this atmosphere? They can’t.
Eli’ane is a dying planet. With a sun and moon that burn bright and hot like a furnace, the plants die, the red dirt amplifies the hard living. When the pickings are slim, the people do what they must to survive.
Day after day Ellie is asked by her father if she had her vitamins. Her husbands Jack, Stone, and Jeremiah pester her about them as well.
All her life she was of the mindset that the vitamins were for her own good. To protect her from the people of the planet. Ellie lives. They don’t. So why the exhaustion? Why does it seem that the more vitamins her father gives her, the more exhausted she becomes? What is wrong with her? Just what is she becoming?
This is the third book in The Guardian of Life series from Kim Iverson, which blends Science Fiction and Fantasy, with a sprinkling of Horror.
