milwaukee Sky Burning
Book II of The Darius Legacy
Teddy is in a lot of trouble and strange undertones seem to be coming from Milwaukee. But is it the Milwaukee we know, or some strange urban doppelganger? For a city is a unique living organism based on people, its history, and a plethora of other variables. How long would it take you to notice it isn’t our Milwaukee? The Milwaukee we know is the city of milk & beer, but the encroaching 21st Century has left much of the old Milwaukee in the mists of time. Like London, Paris & New York, cities are built on top of their aging counterparts yet you can still see the old days of the German-influenced metropolis with old beer brewing tanks just outside the Brewhouse Inn’s second floor hotel rooms. But the brewing of beer remains but an echo of the underlying Milwaukee with its Greek & Dutch communities and an undercurrent of native. A city never remains the same. Forces of finance, nature, crime, & immigration alter it without us noticing until much later. The new is at war with the old, as modern trends create new designs while tradition resists. A city is, and will always be, complex yet fluid in nature. So, an alternate urban center has an interesting potential when time & space is being interfered with by colourful characters.
