Halfkinds: Survival and Superiority (Volume 1 - Contact)
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
In the twenty fourth century, a scientific experiment gave a few species the gift of intelligence, and after much struggle, they've carved out a place in society. By the thirtieth century, humans find themselves co-existing, negotiating, and residing on Earth with these animals as equals.
Maya Lawton is a lonely prostitute living in this world. She gives birth to the first halfkinds, creatures who are half animal-kind, and half mankind. Since interspecies breeding is illegal, she is forced into seclusion and raises them alone. Then one day, without warning, she dies, and her death leads to their discovery. Abandoned and lost, this family of halfkinds plan to escape to a terraformed moon. But the law is after them. The order is to kill, sent by the highest authority, the United Species Alliance.
The Halfkinds series is a science fiction saga filled with complex characters. It's set in a unique future where creatures are fighting for their own place in a once human dominated society. Through the point of views of several characters, you will see events unfold and think about what it truly means to have intelligence.
Very good read!
A waste of time. Amateurishly written.
Totally original and a fast read. Haven't read anything like it.
