"We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand, and it is no good moving from place to place to save things, because the shadow always follows. Choose a place where you won't do harm... yes, choose a place where you won't do very much harm, and stand in it for all you are worth, facing the sunshine." - E.M. Forster, A Room With A View

This is a new sort of fantasy where reality is a part of the plot. All characters are unique and the author gives them life in a brilliant way. The author spent 6 years building the plot and you never know from the start where you end up. The book are full of surprises and one really feel how big this TREE is! "I ended up feeling like I was one of the characters, wish I could have part 2 now"! "It is said that it started with the two red twin stars. In one star, the giant Casper lived and on the other, Giant Argon. They had been fighting for several millennium when the goddess over all our world, Botvid The Great finally had enough. She who was big and strong herself bound the two stars in the middle and gave the giants each a rein to the other, so that they would learn to work together. If Casper pulled his rein, both stars would steer to the right, and if Argon pulled his rein the stars would steer to the left. Botvid's plan did not work, and the two pulled the reins so hard that the two stars finally collided and crashed into a nearby planet. All living in that world then became divided between the two giants. Suddenly, besides having the unbreakable bond between the two stars, each one now had his own people to rule and a new third star which hung behind them like a tail. When Casper and Argon now fought, the tail would recoil back and whip both of them. They thought about it a long time and then they came to the conclusion that the only way to solve their problem, was to make the tail even longer. So, together they now went off to crash with all stars they found until the Snake Dragon was born. Even though the tail was so far away now, it still managed to whip them when they fought, and sparkles flew across the sky. Everytime it did, Casper and Argon lost a little of their strength.Then Argon, who wasn’t the smartest in history, concluded that if they took the already dead from all the different worlds they could reach, they could place them on the stars to control them. Worst off, is said to be the dead furthest out on the tail, for every spark that lit the night sky is a soul that dies instead of Argon and Casper's strength. When Casper and Argon died, Karon is said to have been manifested and born, and he continues the legacy to retrieve the dead and put them on the stars in his tail, but those who was cruel as living, he put furthest out and every time Karon now whips his tail and the sparkles fly, it's evil that disappears.
