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.

It was fun

“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author." Through AudiobookBoom

The story was interesting and I had fun listening to it, the only major problem I found was with the narrators handling of all those questions Esna had one after another after another, they sounded very similarly and it got on my nerves. But that just might be me.

Would have to think about following on.

Looking forward to the next book.

I actually liked the plot. There is not much happening except for Esna trying to escape with the help of someone else. We get to find out about the other alien species, who the enemy is, the history of the planet they are on and of the history of the person helping Esna.

I hear you ask why did I give it three stars if I liked it and looking forward to the next book? Well there are two scenes were the Alien that is helping Esna escape is a vegetarian/vegan. Now there is nothing wrong with that but when he start lecturing Esna of being a killer because she eats meat and telling her that he kills others who sell and eat meat, I found that a bit harsh. I let it go, but later on in the book Esna gets the same lecture and she is made to feel like a murderer. He says just because they don't speak doesn't mean that they don't feel. Well plants don't speak and they do feel. A research is done to show this. So this makes him a murderer too. I felt this was narrow minded and naive of the alien to think this. I mean you are telling me that all aliens who are allys in the galaxies are vegetarian! I believe that is wishful thinking. I hated how they made Esna into a murderer becuase she ate meat. They changed her perspective to suit there own belief and everyone else is a murderer if they did not listen and kept on doing what they did! What! I am sorry but that is unrealistic! I can imagine a species being vegan/vegetarian but not all species are the same.

Other then this it was a good book. I liked the narrator andI thought the characters were distinguishable.

I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.
