The Orient: Quake
(Big thanks to @LunasApprentice for the cover!) (Highest Rank: #338 in Sci-Fi. It's at least something, right?)
A probability to live. That's what the people of Earth were given. Or, at least, it was given to the teens.
Teens and young adults, ages twelve to twenty-one years old, have been given a chance: Train under the supervision of the Lemurians, descendants of the Mu civilization of 24,000 B.C.
The Mu civilization was destroyed thousands of years ago because of an earthquake. The tectonic plates have been slowly moving, year by year, to the point where the underwater ridge of the Atlantic Ocean has split open hundreds of thousands of miles through the Earth's crust. For every second Earth is splitting, a second closer the civilians of Earth are closer to a massive earthquake that will end all lives.
Every teen of Earth is stuck with one mindset: Successfully complete the seven year training to become a part of the Lemuria fleet; including Willow Kimble.
Willow Kimble is a seventeen year old girl from the eastern side of the U.K., born and raised in the outskirts of London. She's the fastest on the girls' track team, but can't grasp the concept of martial arts, making it hard to learn the art of Tinchalo, the fighting style of Lemuria.
What makes everything seem more difficult is drama. It's always drama that seems to swoop in and cause problems: She's stuck in the sun-kissed hands of Aristides (pronounced ah-ree-stee-dayz) Jimenez (the 'J' is in fact pronounced like a 'h'), a lady's man from the center of Madrid, Spain.
Follow the experience of Willow Kimble, and how her determination ends up placing her in dangerous situations, again and again.
"There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept; things we don't want to know but have to learn; and people we can't live without but have to let go."
