Beginning of the end Chapter 15

Traveling through the waters of Rolshar we finally reached our destination twinkling in the distance. The tall glass tower of the Starlight came into view climbing out of the depths of the dark blue water. Spread around the tower where a range of domes, some contained landing craft indicating landing areas and two large domes with the whole city inside.

The whole place looks like a giant crystal squid or jellyfish floating aimlessly.
Very majestic. We closed in on one of the landing areas and as we approached a large unbroken bubble, I could see no entrance, closing my eyes in anticipation, I braced myself for the evitable bone-crunching collision with the outer shell. Instead of death, I heard retro jets being used, allowing us to land perfectly on the pad. Having popped through the bubble with very little resistance and no damage. I looked back it must be some kind of shield like the ones used in starship docking bays, looking around my theory was confirmed by a light which ringed the pad this looked like the emitters holding the water at bay.
