World of the False Dawn
Unknown to its people, the world of Dárdünah is an immense shattered sphere, broken asunder by unimaginably powerful cosmic forces billions of years before any intelligent being walked upon its surface. Its fragile atmosphere is held together by mysterious energies, and the cuplike rims of thousand-mile wide chasms hold glittering oceans upon its many enormous remnant fragments.
On one of these vast world fragments rest the known regions of Dárdünah, home to the animorphs who call themselves “jánah” (the people), brought to the world in ancient times. In the north can be found steamy tropical jungles and alien rainforests. In the south, the more temperate it becomes, with vast deserts of white and even red sand in the southwest. Verdant prairies and steppes lay in the central south, with savannas and dense, gigantic forests in the extreme southeast. The jánah believe that their world is essentially flat, which, considering the vast, apparently bottomless, cloud-filled fissures that surround them,…it may as well be.
