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.

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...

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

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.

Schaelz: I was intrigued from the second I started reading, and it kept my interest the whole way through. Chelsea has a way with words that will enchant you until the very end. She is very poetic with the way she mixes genres and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The main character is also very relat...

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

ElusiveBadwolf: I loved this book so much! It's a shame that i already came to the end of this. I really enjoyed the story, and i liked it how everything became in the end. It was a great book and i can say that you are a great writer too. Keep it that way and i think you can make it in the writing business!

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!!

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...

Sara Grover: When I first started reading, it was a bit slow; though only because it was so information intense and fast-paced in trying to describe how this complex galactic corporation/government like entity controls known space. I would suggest maybe adding a preface to better educate the reader to help av...
