Space Chronicles: The Last Human WarBook
The Last Human War is a space opera about the last remaining humans in the explored galaxy. Three hundred years passed since the end of the Galaxy-wide Human War. Alien scientists on the planet of Tanarac spent the past two and a half centuries manipulating the DNA of their captives. They hoped that one day a less aggressive human species might live in peace with the other sentient races of the galaxy. The Heptari Empire suspects their former allies of hiding secret colonies of human descendants. After the Human War, Tanarac promised to allow their POWs to die off at the end of their natural lives. Now, the Heptari Royal Codae is threatening to finish the job, a genocide of all humans they began long ago. Will Tanarac surrender their prisoners to be killed at the hands of the Heptari government? Or, does a more sinister motive underlie the surprise arrival of powerful Heptari starships at the Tanarac capitol world? Survival of mankind, and even the Tanarac Empire, will depend on the actions of a young man who escapes from a POW mining camp...a human with an unexpected power...Simon of Striker Twelve.
