Shards of Ice is a Science Fiction piece about the head of the King’s Bodyguards and a Vigilante, and how they both have secrets that they can’t share.
The Underground City of Apos is one of many underground cities, however this one is different. It has many levels that stretch down at least a kilometre into the planet’s surface. Each level contains lights that provide Vitamin D, and the daylights are on for 12 hours before they switch to nightlight, which is a dull light, to simulate the darkness, but not pitch black. It allows people to know when the night time is, and releases the melantonin and serontonin that they need to go to sleep and wake up.
There are at least 15 levels between the surface of the planet and the bottom level of the City. Each level contains accommodation and market places for citizens to obtain the necessary supplies they need to feed, clothe and look after themselves. To the side of this city, is a secret portal into the old administration part of the city, this is where the D’Authian Guards are hiding.
The top level, the one closest to the surface is regarded as the port of Apos.
