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.

Drew C. Elyon: I've only read one chapter so far, but from what I've seen, this is steampunk at its best. The narrative flows so beautifully I could envision every scene in an almost cinematic fashion. I believe in the complexity of simplicity, and this story has that in its descriptions.

NancyRichFoster: This second book of the Anmah Series was as awesome as the first story, I disagree with spare runner. The names were ordinary names with different spellings, which I for one loved. I am now going to read the third book in this amazingly awesome story!
