The Mission

Galen, a keeper, and his pupil Raffi live in the fantastical world of Anara which boasts seven moons and a vast city now plunged in eternal darkness. After being discovered by a horseman, Galen and Raffi are delivered to a band of thieves. The head thief, Alberic, steals their only relic—a blue crystal box that Raffi holds dear. He promises to return the relic if they complete a mission for him. They must find a certain Sekoi—a fur-covered creature—who stole their gold, and bring him back to them.

The Crow

As Galen and Raffi travel to the dark city of Tasceron, they find a note which suggests that the Crow is still alive. The Crow is an ancient messenger who flew between the Makers and the Gods. If it is still alive, then Galen and Raffi could restore the Order and save their crumbling world.

The Spy

Meanwhile, a young member of the Watch named Carys is on their trail. Galen is wanted by the Watch and instead of capturing him and the boy, she befriends them, planning to betray them when the time is right. But as they travel to Tasceron, she lets her guard down and realizes that maybe the Watch aren’t the good guys after all.

The Bottom Line

The Dark City is the first of four books in Catherine Fisher’s Relic Master series. Each of the books will be released one month apart, beginning with The Dark City in May. This novel is great for those who like a mix of fantasy and sci-fi, and adventures set in different worlds.

Human activity like too much usage of air conditioners and people who do not close refrigerator properly may cause the thinning of the precious ozone layer. The examples that I`ve listed release CFC. This CFC will mix with the nitrogen in the air and cause the ozone layer to decrease. This may cause more UV light rays to enter Earth and causes the earth temperature to increase little by little every day. As the years go by Earth will dry up one day due to the high temperature and no protection given by the ozone layer for the human race to live in this world. I'm not saying that global warming isn't a significant issue or that it doesn't need our attention, I just don't think it's going to be what kills us. It might kill a lot of everything else, but I don't think it'll kill us.    Well what will die from global warming?

I read it but with what we are doing to our planet mankind won't exist by then so that theory is right of course but we won't well mankind won't exist.
