All I can say right now is 'WOW'. I loved this short story, and when I got to the end it made me want to read more. I love the plot, it was so unique and creative....words can't describe it. I really think that if the author continues on with this story it could be a bestseller. I am so interested to find out what happens next!! Seriously I recommend this story, short but so, so amazingly entertaining.

I enjoyed this story though it was quite short. There didn't seem to be much time to develop the characters but the short introduction to them makes you want to know them better. It felt like this was more of an excerpt from a bigger story and, if that is the case, bring on the book! I would love to read it. I believe this author has potential and I'm looking forward to reading more of her work.

    There was an interesting concept to this story. Though, I think that it’s a concept better fleshed out in a longer piece. I’m a fan of short stories, but I feel that this one was in need of a little world building at the very least.

    While reading questions continued to pop into my head about just what kind of events lead to this alien race coming into control in the way they did. Also, the use of the term “state of the art” occurred often, but there was nothing to base that off of. This was obviously a futuristic story, but what is state of the art when it comes to a world that’s already going to be state of the art to the reader of today?

    I also had questions arise near the end (which I won’t get into due to them spoiling things). The characters knew more than I did as a reader, and I think that it limited my understanding of why some themes were brought up in the end.

    All in all, with me still having questions and also zipping right through this one, I think I’ll be looking forward to book 2, “The Coming,” when it is released.

    Great Story but too short

    The storyline was good and had potential for a full book length version, unfortunately, the author chose to give it all away in only a few short chapters.

    The final revelation about the Eslites was a nice twist though.

    This story has great potential, but it's needs more development.

    This story has great potential, but it's needs more development. The opening chapter is good, but then jumps into the middle of the story and abruptly ends. It left me with so many questions unanswered that I had a hard time seeing it as a full story, even a short one. The writing style is great, but I'd love to read those missing 7 months!
