Batey Descending: Chilly’s Story –
A damaged girl who is used to looking after herself finds life
among the stars is anything but romantic
In a Dystopian future, where human behavior has finally brought destruction to the planet, an alien race has saved some of those who were willing to escape from a doomed Earth.
Living on their vast mother ship, with everything they need, an age old game is reinvented from a Native American sport. New Batey becomes their entertainment and new heroes emerge to play it.
Chilly is one of them. The elder sister of Nico, in this fast-paced and intimidating environment she excels, fighting to be seen as a player who is just as good as any other, just as she had fought for herself every day of her young life.
But how long can she stand the adulation from the crowds? How long can she stay as distant and hateful as she has been her whole life? And how long can she remain a virtual prisoner on an alien craft that promises everything but really delivers nothing?
As the whirlwind competition of Batey continues to consume her life, Chilly may have inadvertently stumbled across the answers.
