Chapter 1

Space… the final frontier, at least that what they called it in Star Trek. For me this is my first step, this where my life begins. This vast emptiness astonishes me. I gaze at the millions of stars that  blind me by staring at them too much. I feel safe here, I feel that I am part of the celestial bodies that are around me and that I am invincible for I am everything that once was and will be. Many years of staring up at the stars and dreaming to be up here floating weightless through space is finally here. I wish I can say “wish you were here” but being alone here just seems right like it was meant to be this way. I take a deep breath, slowly I start unhinging the knobs on my helmet, deactivate the oxygen that is helping breath and I take off my helmet, nothing happens to me for what reason, I do not know. This was my calling, this was the reason I was ever born, to leave Earth and to come here and become one with the entire universe. I take off the rest of my astronaut uniform and I see my skin blending with the existence of this dark and mysterious place. My pale skin becomes dark and shiny, I see the my arms and my legs transforming with the space around me. My body is no longer naked but the amazing canvas of the stars of this incredible universe. I am not afraid of what is happening to me. I feel no fear. I feel serenity, I am truly happy for the first time in life. My mind is finally at peace. I am one with the entire universe. I am the son of billions of particles that make up everything… I am home.

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...

Mark-Mikkel: Got directed here by the author herself. Started reading it, schoolday turned into a day of reading. I really like the apocaliptic world she has created. There are some oddities in the writing tho, but I guess they are because she did have to do it for NaNo (which she wrecked, good job!). In the ...

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

Truemy Brewer: Great first chapter! You tell the story dramatically, but not overly and with just the right amount of words.. There is no cut in the action. I do wonder at the ladies male friend from the village, and what happened to him, but I suppose that will be revealed later. This seems like an epic in the...

Jasmin Soriano: If you want a thought-provoking, ribs-busting tale of religion look no further than Ouroboros!The characters are an absolute riot, and more often than I care to admit, I wondered where I could get the book of hilarious quotes so I could have something to laugh at every morning.We travel back in t...

cwoelk: I enjoyed reading this book, thought the characters were interesting, the premise exciting, and liked the happy ending.

_JosephJacobson_: I don't understand why this has such low ratings. I really enjoyed it!I think that the whole idea behind the plot had something very special and that was something that I really enjoyed. It was new, unique. I think that some of the writing was a little strange in places but overall it made sense ...

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real. Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...

Meri Amber: The plot is creative, fun and addictive! The writing is superb and the characters are really well put together. Definitely highly recommeded!

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...

Ravenhawk: Kim I was sure I wrote this before. But since both my computer and my internet connection has been futzing around so much, I'm surprised that I'm able to write this even now. basically you know I adore this story, I've told you as much before. I cannot fault it in any way at all, except that I wa...

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. The only flaw I could find is that I wish I could have read more. This book is certainly...
