The Skye Van Bloem
Young Adult Sci-fi Fantasy with Environmental Themes
                           Book One: Countdown

              The fate of the planet hinges on the words of one girl.

Skye Van Bloem, barely eighteen, is angry about the environmental crisis, but she didn’t create it, and she isn’t
responsible for fixing it. Now, the animals of Earth are finally having a say in the future of the planet. Assisted by the
Beholders—aliens from a distant planet—the animals are poised to take a vote on the fate of humans.

Aided by her two friends, Skye is the only one who can convince the animals that humans can change and start
protecting the environment, instead of destroying it. But how can she persuade them when she doesn’t believe it’s
really possible?

She’s not alone. A snarky   prairie dog named Starion has offered to help, but he isn’t what he appears to be. But
Skye isn’t either, and Starion knows her dark secret. He’s been watching her for years, and there’s a problem.

He’s in love with her.

The countdown has started.
