Terminus X is a story that is based on an unprecedented deserter when the sun ejects a massive cloud of charged plasma particles and lethal radiation. When the solar wind reaches Earth, it destroys electronics and heats the Earth's core to a point the planet is shattered into fragments around its molten core and moon.
One hundred years later society slowly reorganizes itself, forcing a government system onto the survivors: Xigen and HumaniX. Any leftover survivors are then placed into a five-tiered cast system consisting of: Priests, Communicators, Warriors, Outcasts, and Dregs.
HumaniX government is advanced in technology and its citizens live in huge sky cities that travel through the gravity wakes between the moon and Earth's molten core. The Xigen are a lesser-advanced government, which lives on the floating landmasses, struggling to survive. The two governments have been constantly at war over water, food and land.
Struggling in a hostile environment, Travis Medwin and Nelson Porter conduct illegal deals and eventually join a dangerous race that could mark the outcome of their lives. But after being dragged into a conflict between two warring factions, their goal suddenly changes to that of survival as they fight to discover the truth that's plaguing the struggling remains of humanity.
