After an asteroid collided with earth and changed the tilt of the axis, humanity had to adapt. The survivors of the impact slowly rebuilt, creating a migratory society that followed the short growing seasons. Migration was more than a suggestion, it was the law.
Tenet Bradwin, the son of the nation's Exalted Leader, spent weeks gathering supplies and making plans to go through the modern day rite of passage and off-season through the Summer. Others had done it. Others had hidden from the transports and guards to test their mettle against the brutal elements. Others had done it and been considered heroes by their peers. He was certain he could handle it.
But he hadn't planned on wraiths. He hadn't considered the enormous gilla and raptors and other preditors that prowled in the sun. He hadn't known his food would spoil in days, or that all his practical training at the Academy was useless in the brutal reality of Summer. In a very short time, Tenet learned that all he thought he knew was no more than a story. He didn't just have to prove his mettle. In the scorching Summer sun, he quickly learned that he had to prove himself.
