FALLINGSTAR in Tribes: The Dog Years, the new color graphic fiction series from Soulcraft Comics:
For the Sky Shadow tribe, life consists of a series of tough choices between absolute necessities. Survival is paramount; everyone has a role to play in a tightly knit tribal system. But for Fallingstar, being chosen as the future wife of a Chief, somehow does not feel right. What is her true destiny? Why does she yearn for more, beyond her role.
She yearns to become more than is expected of her. Does she dedicate her life to her duty, or does she take another path? Can a young woman determine her people’s priorities while also avoiding her role as one of their leaders? Will her determination endanger her and her people’s future? But there is no time to ponder. In the world of Tribes: The Dog Years, humans live to only twenty-one years of age. Fallingstar must act – now!
And so she is inspired by Doctor Irving Adams, the seemingly immortal scientist who has apparently lived nearly three lifetimes, and his tales of a world beyond the limited existence of her isolated and constantly threatened tribe. How has he survived? Is his magic real, as opposed to the nonsense of the Sky Shadows’ medicine man, Signeader. Dr. Adams seeds the dream that one day she might actually see and help raise her grandchildren.
Her influence stirs Sundog, our reluctant hero, to join Adams and his mysterious quest to find the source of the “plague” that robs humans of precious life at the tender age of twenty-one.
Fallingstar, future wife of the Chief of the Sky Shadows, will play a crucial role in the future of humanity.
