Chased by the law, hounded by cutthroats, Silence (Sheikoh) survives to bear the memory of the girl he couldn’t save from herself–the girl he still can’t help but love, Emili Wray. But when he gets caught up in a magical conspiracy, love is given a second chance . . .
The Celestial Equation is set in a world where:
- When certain people (Celestial) grow into adolescence, they become able to manipulate transdimensional energy
- Throughout time, an empire has maintained control of both the entire world and the Celestial
- Science evolved around emulating magic. Particle physics, observational techniques, and fusion generators make things like plasma weapons generally accessible, but simple steam powered machinery/clockwork/assembly lines are relatively new (instead of cars, they ride around genetically-modified horses).
The resulting society is structured like our 1800s. People dress in petticoats and ride horses around, plasma pistol in holsters and a monocle (which is a version of a smartphone) over an eye.
PS- I’d totally be super grateful if anyone were to review it. Help with visibility and what not. :)))
