an original series
A thousand miles across, twenty-five miles above the Earth's surface. Massive clawing scratches were visible along the length of its underside. The object was named Obsidian Sky.
Women around the world began giving birth to babies with an odd set of mutations, who were soon designated "CX5".
Our story begins 30 years later.
OBSIDIAN SKY is about a divide that cuts humanity in two. Our characters include Venus, the most popular pop star in the world, who is also a CX5. Her lovers are Tom, a police officer with the NYPD, and Andrew, a CX5 activist. When the tides of power on Earth begin to turn, our characters' lives and humanity's future are thrown into uncertainty.
