Overview

The world has changed from what it once was. A dark new species rules the planet. Humankind is endangered. I spent all of my seventeen years deep in the forest in a hidden village with other humans, safe from the savage creatures that inherited Urth. But one day, all of that changed. Our village was found. We were discovered. My people were slaughtered. None were spared, except the young. Taken and forced into a life of slavery, we’ve been thrust into a civilization where one rule applies: kill or be killed. It is the only way to survive. As a result, I worry I’m lost, that I’ve strayed so far from what characterizes me as human I wonder some days whether I am any better than the creatures who enslave me. Then the love I feel for my siblings reminds me. The constant fear for their safety that drums in time with my heartbeat. The realization that I hate what has been done to them, to me. I vow to avenge what’s happened, to free us. Or die trying.
I am Lucas. This is what life is for humans on the remains of planet Urth.

Meet the Author

Jennifer and Christopher Martucci hoped that their life plan had changed radically in early 2009. To date, the jury is still out. But late one night, in January of 2010, the stay-at-home mom of three girls under the age of six had just picked up the last doll from the playroom floor and placed it in a bin when her husband startled her by declaring, "We should write a book, together!" Wearied from a day of shuttling the children to and from school, preschool and Daisy Scouts, laundry, cooking and cleaning, Jennifer simply stared blankly at her husband of fifteen years. After all, the idea of writing a book had been an individual dream each of them had possessed for much of their young adult lives. Both had written separately in their teens and early twenties, but without much success. Life placed writing on the back burner and for several years, each had pursued alternate (paying) careers. But the dream had never died. And Christopher suggested that their dream ought to be removed from the back burner for further examination. When he proposed that they author a book together on that cold January night, Jennifer was hesitant to reject the idea outright. His proposal sparked a discussion, and the discussion lasted deep into the night. By morning, the idea for the Dark Creations series was born.
The Dark Creations series, as well as the Arianna Rose series, the Planet Urth series and the Demon Hunter series are works that were written while Jennifer and Christopher continued about with their daily activities and raised their young children. Life simply continued. And in some ways, their everyday lives were reflected in the characters of each series.
As the story line continues to evolve, so too does the Martucci collaboration. Lunches are still packed, noses are still wiped and time remains a rare and precious commodity in their household, but it is the sound of happy chaos that is the true background music of their writing. They hope that their work, though penned for a young adult audience, will be appreciated by the young of every age, and that all enjoy reading it as much as they enjoyed writing it.

I liked the whole story. There are a few mistakes with spelling, but nothing very bad. I recommend this book to anyone who likes the planet urth series. It starts before all the castles like cassowary were made.
