I Dreamt of Trees

by Gilles DeCruyenaere

Jason Crawford has dedicated his life to fighting the mysterious alien race which threatens the massive city-ship he calls home. A few days before his first mission, however, Jason discovers a terrible secret which could mean an end to his way of life forever. Fearing government reprisal for this new-found knowledge, Jason takes refuge in the Rim, a walled-off section of the ship where citizens are left to fend for themselves while the government ruthlessly plunders its resources.

While there, Jason forms an uneasy alliance with fellow exile Greg. Though they share the same goal of exposing the government’s terrible secret, their relationship is strained; Jason is selfish, profane and morally ambiguous, while Greg is generous, kind and liberal-minded.

Will Jason and Greg manage to achieve their goals despite their ideological differences? Will Jason ever escape the Rim, and if so, can he hope to regain anything even resembling the life of entitlement to which he was accustomed?

 

“I Dreamt of Trees” is a story of struggle and survival in a dystopian society built on fear and greed. Though you may be tempted to judge the characters, be certain of one thing: On the USS McAdam, no one is quite as good, nor quite as bad as they seem.

excerpt

 

It was a typical Friday night at Core Plaza. Thousands upon thousands of happy citizens wandered about the mall’s perimeter, some in search of food and drink, some looking for entertainment, and others simply soaking up the festive atmosphere.

 

Of course, no trip to Core Plaza was complete without a stroll across the huge circular glass floor commonly known as the “Star Walk”. Measuring exactly one mile in diameter, the Star Walk spanned the upper end of the USS McAdam’s primary waste chute. Used mainly as a vent for the insanely dangerous radioactive gas created by the McAdam’s PNTPD (photo-nuclear tri-phasic drive), the chute also served as a conduit for any unpleasant waste which could not be reclaimed by the ship’s many complex recycling mechanisms. As the tube, by necessity, pierced the ship’s photonic shields, the star walk now offered the populace their only truly clear view of space. On any given day, hundreds of people could be seen gazing in wonder at the breathtaking view below, from time to time emitting a small group cheer as a Squelcher ship would inexplicably fly below the mouth of the vent, only to be summarily torn apart in a maelstrom of glowing blue plasma. For many of the residents of the Good Ship McAdam, a Friday night “Star Stroll” was truly the highlight of their week.

Not usually a fan of sci-fi books I have to say this is a great read. great writing and the story keep me going.
We meet Jason he is focus in protecting life from the aliens that attacks and threatens the ship he calls home. He finds some secrets that shakes his beliefs and while trying to figure out how to expose the government that lies to them he meets Greg and exile that is against the government as well.
The use a lot of strong language on the book which didn’t offend me but if you are easily offended maybe this book is not for you.
Gilles Decruyenere did a great job writing I dream of Trees and ill be looking for more from him.
