Change your mask. Change your color. Change your destiny.

In a world where everyone wears masks and superstitions abound, the color of your chrome determines who you are and where you will live. 

And if you will live.

Here, Asheva, a 14 year old Chrome of the Black Nation, will see his world crumble underneath him, as events too big for his age will force him to run away from his native city of Axyum. 

A new journey will take him to lands with different colors and different ways from the Black. From a desperate escape through the hills and forests of the Black Nation to the vast Blue Plains of the city of Ayas, Asheva will learn to face the dangers of the wilderness but also to face the even more dangerous nature of the Chromes, including the worst accusation a Chrome can be charged with. 

Only then he will realize that beneath the masks that all Chromes wear, nothing is what it seems.

I'm not sure what to think...apart from the fact that the writing you've done is amazing! 
                              You've made a great first chapter. I really like the descriptions that you have written about the characters and setting. 
                              I can't wait to read more.
