Featured Review on this writing by Burgerhicks80

The humans took everything from him. They took his world, his family, his identity. It's time to take it back. It's time for rebellion.

In a near future, humanity has joined the ranks of the galaxy's other space faring species. In their expansion, none are spared. Conquering all they can get their claws into, human extremists never hesitate- not even when face to face with another sapient being.

The ahresh were a peaceful people. Having not raised a weapon against another species in nearly a thousand years, they were an easy target for human militant operations and extremist groups. They fell quickly in the face of superior weaponry, their world quickly falling into ruin and destruction as militant groups from Earth overran their cities.

Forced into prison camps- a convenient way to tuck them away until they died out- the ahresh were hopeless. They'd all but lost their will to go on. That was, until what could only be considered a miracle occurred. A child was born. A hybrid son of a human man and an ahresh woman. Ha'zai Maaik- the face of unity. No one truly knew if he was born of love or violence, but military leaders saw the potential there was in a hybrid. It would earn sympathy- it would gain allies.

Ha'zai grew up in war, surrounded by it. He was molded in violence and tried by the fires of war. He has never known peace. With the war still raging after a hundred years of occupation, Ha'zai is ready to bring it to an end. Now an adult- and a commander in the Ahresh Collective Initiative navy starship fleet- he finally has the means to make that happen. Alongside allies- both longterm friends and unlikely partners- he is determined to set his people free. Will he be the savior they need or will he let the once vibrant ahresh fade into history?
