Max was stunned.

It was the most beautiful thing he had ever laid eyes on. All the stories he’d heard as a young boy had been true. There did exist a world where fire lit the sky each morning, bathing the land in golden light.

Max tore his gaze away, the world dimming around him as his eyes adjusted. This was his new home, his future.
