They say the world used to turn. They say that night would follow day in an endless dance. They say that dawn rose, dusk fell, and we worshiped both sun and stars. 

That was a long time ago. 

The dance has died. The world has fallen still. We float through the heavens, one half always in light, one half always in shadow. Like the moth of our forests, one wing white and the other black, we are torn. 

My people are the fortunate. We live in daylight, blessed in the warmth of the sun. Yet across the line, the others lurk in eternal night, afraid... and alone in the dark. 

I was born in the light. I was sent into darkness. This is my story.

Amazing writing, good twist, leaving the readers wanting more. I could only hope my writing gets nearly as good as this.
I read the preview on amazon and this first sentence always grabs me!

I could understand why you guys dislike her, but I acutually like her a lot. Her comedic relief does wonders for me.

Here's a theory, the guys who live in the dark are Americans. The people who live in the light are Chinese. That is why to the Chinese the Americans have big eyes and white skin

I love your descriptions. They are so real, and give me such a clear image in my head lol
