Starfire's Arc: To Be a Heroine

By LitBlueEyes

Romance / Scifi

Prologue

“What can we know about the Light?”

“The Light?”

“The Light has its own name in the tales we tell our children, that in darkest of places a light will always gleam from somewhere off.” Two masculine hands, rough bone and bulging knuckle, softly clasp a floating light from the ceiling that twinkled to resemble the night sky, which now  burned a foreboding warning to the aliens under it: their own light source was dimming and the universe looked like it was shouting. 

“I’ve—I’ve been fortunate as the elders say to have lived a lifetime of exploring galaxies myself.” Between the fingers, the light twinkles and twinkles, lighting the tan, tan palms. “Though, I have been called naïve for never witnessing total darkness, have you seen it? The parts of the universe that are dominated by complete emptiness, the myths that haunt us, the supposed graveyards of the galaxy. Can you imagine how horrid the sight?

“I walk in our dying world and cannot help but to remember those myths: the stars, like ours, that have dimmed, the people who have suffered, the universe gone unstable, and the worlds that have become nothing. Clearly, even during our daytime, even with the three lights in our sky burning at my sides, I can see how dark our world can become.

“So I ask, can Light inspire us? It has manifested itself as hope.”

“You are speaking too romantically, Galfore.”

“Can you tell me that when we find ourselves wading through total darkness, will we be able to remember what Light was like?

“This invasion—it’s our avenging the people who thwarted us from preventing this.”  

“My hurting heart, a lot of people—they will be killed.”

“They will.”

“Has the Grand Ruler spoken?”

“Tonight he shall send an attack force to Earth.”

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

A.O. Chika: I loved the storyline. The characters, the settings, and the overall plot was great. I love how it started sweet in the beginning and then the angst set in. I did feel like the author writing style could use a bit of change as the book reads more like a YA novel than an Adult novel (I.e grown up ...

Dessie Williams: WOW!!!! This is one great book. I was pulled in from the start. I laughed , got angry and plus I even cried. I didn't want the book to end. It's a must read and I hope it gets published, this book must be on my shelf with my other favorites .😊

bhodges11: I like the concept of the story, but there were things that I felt could use more detail. I like the back stories created, but was left wanting more from parts of the story. I like the cadence of the author's writing style - it was a very easy, enjoyable read. I felt like it ended on, not a cliff...

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

spec4huff: Thank you for creating this world. I am a 6'3" veteran that thinks himself tough. But the piece of literature you have created made me misty eyed on a number of occasions. I want a love like this. Thank you again, I would totally buy this book and hopefully the sequels to this ever enchanting lov...

Karl12: This is a very unusual sci-fi mystery. I enjoyed the suspense which was present throughout the story. I loved how I never knew what to expect from the characters. This made the story thrilling and made me suspicious of everything and everyone. You have a great style of writing – one which captiva...

serginemuzac: This book had me dieing😂😂😂 It was super lit and I was reading it for the whole day. Its really interesting and I couldnt put my phone down until I finished all 22 chapters! Even though the grammer was a bit off (I actually enjoyed it, it made everything funnier) I really liked it.

emmaneal74: I loved this booked. Would definitely buy it when published and read it again. The story flowed in such a way I just couldn't put it down. I was never confused about the characters or their roles in the story which can happen sometimes with so many lead. I'd recommend this to anyone wanting to r...

bansodeyari: The story is really wonderful. It has details (sometimes which are not needed). The story is plotted well. It's lengthy though, but worth reading. It is based on realty which normal people face. Overall I loved it. Peace✌️.

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang". The characters are so diverse and complicated that each of them could just about spawn their own story. Eric's buddies are just so captivating and the plot just rolls along. Again...

mullikin902: Do not start reading this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one sitting, because you will not be able to put it down! Superlative! Addictive! Deliciously wicked characters you can't get enough of. Impatiently waiting for the sequel!
