On a planet where the only
difference between three tribes is their blood color, war is on the horizon.
Breaker, an amputee, wants peace for his family and home. Malani, a kidnapped
POW, wants to return home. Luka wants justice for his home. All three teens
come together when Breaker is given seven days to fix a wrecked enemy starship
or their home, and peace, is forfeit..
“In this richly
imagined start to a new sci-fi series, Reed brings optimism to the goal of
solving entrenched violence in a galaxy far, far away . . . A propulsive,
sharply crafted tale about a planetary war.” –Kirkus Reviews
I cupped my hands around my
mouth. “Brody! Brody!”
Nobody was allowed to break
boundary unless you were on hunting rounds and wanted a shot at the
deercorns—three-horns, good meat—or on boundary duty. The land between here and
the Heron Mountains in the west was technically neutral territory and belonged
to no one. Too many good game trails passed through and everyone needed good
protein. You’d think this meant a peace card for any who marched through the
area. Then a handful of cycles back, attacks started becoming more frequent.
Now, neutral territory meant open hunting season on everyone.
And if you were in trouble .
. . the compound wouldn’t help.
I couldn’t leave him out
there. I had to go over the fence. Beyond the compound’s boundary.
I was going to murder that
The tree branches on the
opposite side created a tunnel. Ravines on either side had been dug deep for a
grave ditch in case of a future blood bath. Water filled them now. No need to
waste time or tears while shoveling, just dump the bodies in the pre-dug ditch.
Time and pain in the past saved time and pain in the future.
I set my foot on the lowest
rail. The wood jiggled. Bangit. I couldn’t climb over the stupid thing. I
pocketed the pick, got back on my bike, reversed, and aimed it at the fence.
Even though the bike ran on solatech energy, the magnetic polarity of mineral
deposits in the ground kept it afloat. In theory, the bike should pass right
over the fence, since the fence wasn’t quite solid, so the bike would never
lose complete contact with the ground.
I revved the bike. A surge
of solaenergy sent me flying toward the fence. I shoved on the handles right
before I hit the broken rail, bouncing and soaring right over the fence. The
bike didn’t even bounce on the ground on the other side.
My chest tightened a notch.
I just broke boundary.
I hadn’t broke boundary in
eight cycles.
I swear there was still a
faint smell of cinnamon, though the gun smoke couldn’t have hung in the air
this long. Lining the ravine were the twelve gravecrosses. Rainwater ran like
thinned-out blood off the names carved into the bars. The letters were slowly
being erased by weather and time, as though the people were being slowly erased
from our memory until they never existed.
