Publisher's summary

They came as saviors to a deteriorating Earth.

Julip Torne questions whether there is more to life beyond the barren dirt, acidic seas, and toxstorms her people work and die in. Living in poverty on the withering Greenland Human Reservation, she wonders if the alien Mezna goddesses are truly as holy as the temple preaches.

Meanwhile, Jakkattu prisoner Sabaal suffers constant torture and heinous medical experiments as Mezna-priest captors seek to unlock the key to her genetic makeup. She escapes captivity but ends up alone on the hostile alien planet of Earth. If she is to survive, she must work with the same Mezna-human hybrids she's loathed her entire life.

When humans and Mezna collide, will Sabaal turn out to be the genetic vector the Mezna have been searching for all along, or will she spark the flame that sets a revolution ablaze?

Evolved Publishing presents the first book in the Jakkattu series of sci-fi adventures, from national award-winning and USA Today best-selling author P. K. Tyler.

Amazing World Building

In a distant future, humans live in reserves where they try to escape the inclement weather and survive as best as they can. Earth has been colonized by a superior race called the Mezna, who are able to breed with humans, producing hybrids. Mezna and hybrids live in protected cities, turning their backs to the humans at the reserves and to the undone, feral beings living on the edges of both societies, and feared by most. This is also the story of Sabaal, a Jakkattu prisoner who suffers the torture given by the Mezna’s experiments on her, trying to unlock the key to her genome.

This story had an amazing world building, with different types of societies and secrets to uncover. There were quite some questions that picked my curiosity and kept me listening without being able to stop. I found the little societies inhabiting the reserves quite peculiar, matriarchy based, and with arranged marriages to avoid having genetic defects.

There are two main characters in this book, and the point of view alternates between them. On one hand, we have Julip Thorne, a young girl in one of these reserves, and daughter of an important woman. Julip can’t understand the world’s order and she will try to find answers to why things are as they are. T
