Welcome to week 12 of the Year of Stories!
There’s a war on. Jayk is a willing soldier in the fight against the Fargon, and he’s ready to do his part whether he’s in the fray or back at home recuperating between tours. But does his idea of “helping from home” line up with reality?
Darien Hammond and his wife, Tiffany, helped clear planet Oronado of the incumbent alien Cust almost two decades ago. They laid down roots, started a farm and a family, and settled into their new life. Then the Cust returned. The human settlers are on the run, scrambling into shuttles as their cities and farms are burned from orbit. Can Darien and his family make it out in time?
