Chapter 1

My name is Grace Winters and I was eighteen the year the aliens came. Eight-foot tall blue beings with eyes like coal from the depths of space. They requested a meeting with the President of our country and with all the leaders of the world and the event was covered on all the major news sources, television, radio. It was unlike anything anyone had ever seen. The leader of the aliens, a male named Balthazar, and his contingent arrived but something went wrong. There was an attack by some extremists and Balthazar died, along with many other humans and aliens. That was when the war began.

Balthazar's son, Zathor, proclaimed war on all of humanity and vowed to destroy all the primitives that had caused his father's death. The war was long, and bloody, and utterly catastrophic. I fought for my people in many, many battles, but ultimately the human race lost. However, Zathor was "merciful". He would handpick twenty people, survivors, to join him as he traveled back to his homeland. The rest would be destroyed along with Earth. My name had apparently reached his ears, as I was among the twenty chosen and I had to watch as my homeworld was destroyed, as my parents and grandparents and siblings died. I would have remained with them, but I was immediately detained by the aliens and brought onto the ship.

I was brought before Zathor along with the others and he told us we were now his servants. We would be treated well and be well fed as long as we obeyed, but if we did not we would be put to death. He was my first good look at the aliens, because thought I had fought against them, I had never seen one up close. They were humanoid and had almost exactly the same features, two arms, two legs, one head, for the females, breasts, etc. But they were all at least eight-feet, and a shade of blue, some darker, some lighter. All were bald, even the females, all had black eyes, and all were slim, but muscular. I hated them.

This story starts a week after the Earth was destroyed and I had lost everything I held dear. It was my first day as his assistant. I was 20 at the time.

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...

Chris Rolfe: BOY!!! I sure love what Aer-Ki Jyr did with this series. IMHO he captured the essence of what stargate is all about. Thru out the Stargate stories Aer-Ki wrote Stevens and John Shepard some of the main characters in his stories are pursued by a corrupt I.O.A.. All the while Stevens is changing in...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

John Reed: Seadrias masterfully captures the impressiveness and complex scope that a science fiction novel should provide while carefully crafting an entire universe that will leave a reader in awe from start to finish.

internathunal: I was held captive by your sense of style. I would love to see more from you. I enjoyed this immensely.

neil101: The best story I have read online in quite some time. The casual violence is tamed down with easy going wit. It reads like a Joe Abercrombie novel .Looking forward to more. Thanks.
