Years and light-years away, one father must find the courage to do whatever it takes to protect his children …

As a surgeon for the Mercy Interplanetary Alliance, Micheel Reshi is no stranger to difficult choices. But when his wife, Nabelle, gives brith to their twins, Micheel is horrified to find Callox and Pasher bare the Sign of Gemini on their arms. The bright constellation marks them as carriers of the hidden code Earth’s last generation had engineered into human DNA—and marks them as targets by the Collectors, a group of people determined to wipe out all memory of Old Earth and its existence.

When Count Lux, Nabelle’s cousin and a member of the Collectors, arrives on their starship, Micheel knows he must do something to save his family—even if it means breaking them apart.

My Review

4 Stars

This is a quick story that talks about the birth of twins to a doctor, Micheel and his wife, Nabelle. They are blessed with twins that have the Sign of Gemini on their arms. This mark is a symbol of the children carrying the hidden code from Earth’s last generation. This is a sign of change that many consider a curse. Those that have these signs have been killed to remove all traces of the Old Earth.

Collectors are those that have been tasked with finding those with the signs and killing them. Shortly after the birth of the boys a collector shows up. Micheel must make a tough decision to keep his family safe.

This is a short story that peaked my curiosity about where this series is going to go. Now I admit that by just reading the story I was a little lost, there wasn’t much information there and got more by reading the blurb for the book. I did like the story and I thought the animated portion was well done. I am excited to see what is going to happen next and recommend checking this novella out.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
