About the Book

tjv-ebook-coverThey came as saviors to a deteriorating Earth

Julip Thorne questions whether there is more to life beyond the barren dirt, acidic seas, and toxstorms her people work and die in. Living in poverty on the withering Greenland Human Reservation, she wonders if the alien Mezna goddesses are truly as holy as the temple preaches. Julip begins to dig deeper into the history of the planet and her leaders’ rise to power. But nothing can prepare her for the atrocities she uncovers.

Meanwhile, Jakkattu prisoner Sabaal suffers constant torture and heinous medical experiments as her Mezna-priest captors seek to unlock the key to her genetic makeup. Escaping from captivity, she finds herself suddenly alone on the hostile alien planet of Earth. To survive, she’s forced to work with the same Mezna-human hybrids she’s loathed her entire life, but the more they work together, the more they realize that their enemy is the same.

When humans and Mezna collide, will Sabaal turn out to be the genetic vector the Mezna have been searching for all along, or will she spark the flame that sets a revolution ablaze?

Great story with a great message

This story is about what happens when a person is bullied by others long enough. I have learned that while bullying is bad, you should never join the bullies in bullying others. Plus, there’s nothing wrong with letting someone else know about the bullying.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Very interesting!

With strong characterization, chilling description and realistic dialog, MJ Ware weaves an interesting Harry Potter parody story that has elements of classic children’s literature, yet plenty of unique twists and turns that make it a fresh new tale.
