Publisher's Summary

What's it like to be the last Human?
And not even know you're Human?
Esna Donovan was stranded on a planet full of people that didn't look like her as a child along with her brother. Their father was murdered, leaving them sitting in their spaceship waiting for his return.
They remember almost nothing from before that time, when two Calavari who were business associates of their father took them in and told them they could never be seen outside their full body armor. They've honored their father's dying wish, living and working on the Calavari's farm while exploring the barren wastelands looking for bits of technological salvage from the time before the great cataclysm.
They don't know they're Human, just that they're different and they can't show their skin in pubic. The two siblings have lived almost their entire lives in their self-styled body armor and dream of leaving the farm and doing something that mattered...but there's nowhere to go. Nothing to do.
Then one day that all changes and Esna is set forth on a rollercoaster ride of a life she could never have expected when the word "Human" is once again spoken on the planet...only it's a word of rage and ear, with the local aliens trying to kill whoever it is applied to, though they've never seen one before.
Regardless, the word is tagged to her and she must run...with a little help.

Book made long to turn it into sequel.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author / narrator / publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

The premise is really really awesome. Last humans living among other species who wants to finish the job of wiping out humans...!!? Hell, yeah. Tell me more. And the author did. In long winding chapters. There's just too much unnecessary detail and "character building". For most of the book, the hero of the story is running and running and running. A large chunk of it could've been edited out, turning the book much crispier and enjoyable. The world building is great and the characters are solid. But there's just too much detail.

And the vegetarian vs meat eater debate in it sounded soooo preachy.

fwiw, if you do manage to ignore the length of the book and like the story, you would want to check out book 2, as the story will continue there.

Space vegetarians take on the galaxy

Ok, I will admit that this book is entertaining. It starts off with an interesting premise and did the "nearly unbillable monster hunting you" thing better than a lot of other books have managed. And the second half of the book was solid too. But it dose have its flaws, which I will be a bit vague about if you don't mind as not to spoil anything. Some events happen a bit too soon to get as much of a payoff as I think could have been achieved if simply pushed further for a few chapters. Also Star Force itself in this book I'm guessing is supposed to be a great and noble good guy space force lead by humans......humans that are militantly vegetarian, only work because they enjoy it and are mostly not paid for any work they do, and apparently are now immortal due to diet and exercise........I know there is a level of suspension of disbelief in Sci-Fi but this really pushed it for me and came off as super preachy. Maybe I'm just jaded seeing as how I didn't even lift a brow at hulking four armed aliens, but utopian immortal vegetarian humans was what made me start questioning things. Aside from that though I did enjoy the book. Not sure ill get the second book, but maybe if its on discount.

I got this book in return for a fair and honest review.
