Zanna Mirzam?

By PepperminPatti

Scifi / Action

Zanna Mirzam Skywalker

Hi. I'm Zanna Mirzam. I'm 14 years old, I live on Sullus, a planet on the outer rim. Sullus used to be known for its amazing pilots, there are runways and hangers everywhere. Flying is a main part of life. Ships are always flying over head, and there are several training schools that teach kids as young a 10 to pilot. The most commonly used system is a flight simulator. it's basically a video game, but it teaches you how to fly. All the cool kids have one at their house. Sullus is also a prized trading post, and that attracts many people, including the first order. When I was 11 all I wanted for my 12th birthday was a flight simulator of my very own. Instead, the first order took over my planet.

The first Order changed my planet. Stormtroopers patrolled everywhere, and anyone looking even a little bit out of line is arrested. The X-wings and Corellian Freighters that always flew over head were replaced with tie fighters and Star destroyers. trade nearly ceased overnight, and the only thing that keeps us citizens going is the black market. All pilot schools were closed down, and flight simulators were taken to train stormtroopers. They don't want us to fly away. People used to be able to fly whenever they wanted, but know if you want to fly, you need a complicated permit that costs a fortune, you can only buy permits per flight, and you can't even leave the planet. the First Order doesn't trust us, and I don't trust them.

Most people just stay inside, and wait for it to be over, for the resistance or the republic to save us. My Aunt Jhoti and Uncle Mark didn't do that. Instead, we just tried to fit into the cookie-cutter mold the First Order set up for us. I didn't know it yet, but I was to important to be hidden away. Unlike most of my former classmates, I still went to school. I sat through all the lessons about how great the first Order was, and battles the first order won, and how terrible the republic was, and how all resistance fighters needed to be killed. All the classes that were really not teaching us anything but to stay still and not revolt.

Even though everyone else thought that I was a traitor, I still wanted my flight simulator, but I knew I couldn't have it. Yet somehow, my Aunt and Uncle got one for me. to this day I have no idea how they snuck it past the first order, but they did, and on the last night of Hanukkah when I was 12, I got it. It's a much older model, but it still worked. That was the last happy day I had for a long time.

nirrmitshah: A truely touching story where you'd be at the edge of your seat for the most time. even though the starting might seem rushed, the story was extremely interesting and entertaining. I think certain parts could be added detailing the Mynds's culture. As well as more details on the Jhanthru history....

Deleted User: 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.

Laraine Smith: This should be a movie! You are talented! It is that good! Keep it up! It is visual! It grabbed me! Don't give up!

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

jigglypuff314: Feeling sad that you can't watch your harem hentai in class? This is the book for you! No one will suspect a thing (other than your boner) as you scroll through pages of some of the best porn you'll ever be able to imagine!Spectacular details and a wonderful tug of emotions, you won't know whethe...

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...

cassandrab: Delightful SciFi (for a change)! I am not a SciFi fan: mostly the genre is far too dystopic for me. This book (written by a high-school friend) is, on the other hand, generally upbeat. Yes, Earth's future is threatened. But Earth has a chance to plan a response. And (spoiler alert) ultimately win...

TheProfezzer: This is an excellent story. The plot covers several decades and at least two generations of good guys fighting the enemy from beyond. I found it hard to put down and read the second book after the first but you should red "the Origin of FORCE" first to keep the story in line. I just could not ...

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

Ding Fernando: very nice read.so realistic you can hardly put it down,i really like the character so human despite posessing immortality and eternal youth.though i would prefer a better ending..i still love this novel and i am recommending it to all sci fi fans to give it a try .you will love it too!!

spooky jedi: Love your story!I really hope more people read this story!Its amazing!! The plot is very unique and different, which is very good to have in a world full of stories. You have very complex and intellectual plot line, with your many loveable character and that hint of 'will they, won't they' is ju...
