THE LAST HUMAN WAR
by D S Sault

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.

by Dawn Napier

Garrett is a Ranger of the Light, a sworn guardian of the natural world and its inhabitants. His duty is to root out evil and destroy it before it can destroy the land he cherishes, but he finds it difficult to identify that evil in himself. His heart is broken by the brutal murder of his beloved, and his thirst for revenge leaves him vulnerable. Fellow rangers Wren and Nolan are determined to reclaim their friend’s soul and bring him back to the Light. They are aided by a wandering dwarf and a wild fairy who longs for humanity. But as the companions discover, even magic can’t save someone who doesn’t want to be saved.

But when the empowered clash, the weak must unite or be crushed. One decision, one impossible act, will set the resistance on a new and irrevocable course. The world will know the Ignota.
