About the Author
EDITOR: I have loved books since I was too young to remember, my love of books a folktale itself, one told by my mother at family gatherings. I have dim impressions of my mother recounting the stories of The Iliad and The Odyssey, spinning them from memory like a classical orator, and my dad reading me Treasure Island. My mother was an English teacher, and so inevitably she supported my desire to read. I graduated from Whitman College with a degree in English, and graduated from Portland State University with a degree in Book Publishing. At Whitman I worked as a writing tutor, and at PSU I focused on editing. My goal as an editor is to help clarify the writer's vision and polish their story into the best version of itself. Above all, my goal as an editor is communication: helping a writer to translate their thoughts into a form that others can understand. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Humanity has created a way to pass down knowledge from one person to the next, without ever losing it, the perfect knowledge transference. Of course, it is only one-sided, and every family can only have one child, so a choice is made at conception to have a male or female – keeping the population balanced, and knowledge balanced. Cosette’s story tells of how she is struggling to finish a project, of a great starship, about to leave Earth with 150,000 people to go and colonise another planet, and try and help Earth, which is struggling with the burden of so many people. It is during her story that we learn that her baby is not all that it seems, and worse, Earth and the Solar System are under attack by an alien race of unknown type, seeking to destroy everything.
The 2nd story is about a young human boy, Moshie, the last human alive, or known to exist in a universe in which all human life was destroyed. An alien Empress came to Earth and destroyed it, but her destruction of Earth was seen as a failure. As a race of shape-shifters, the Empress is forced to take the form of a human, and to take responsibility of the last human, Moshie. Unbeknownst to her, and most everyone else, Moshie is kind of different, he has some special gifts. He is super intelligent, able to assimilate languages at incredible speeds, and learn things beyond the capabilities of normal humans. By the time he is a toddler, he knows hundreds of the languages spoken on the strange planet that he now lives on with his strange ‘step-mom’.
However, he is still a weakling in the eyes of most of the other races, and is bullied constantly.
The two stories evolve, moving forward at a rapid pace, each giving us a deep insight into not just our main characters and the struggles that they are having to face on a daily basis, but the struggles of those around them as well. For Cosette, this relates to her friends and family facing the impending end of their planet, and for poor little Moshie, this is the constant bullying, harassment, and the realisation that he may not survive much longer.
I don’t want to give too much more away, events that go beyond this will give away spoilers, and this is a story that is well worth reading, as it is both exciting, interesting, and at times, a clever thriller with some surprising, and gripping outcomes that you don’t necessarily see coming.
Pease has created a fascinating backdrop for his characters to play in (both Cosette and Moshie). The future on Earth is one that is not uncommon in a lot of different Sci-fi stories, quickly becoming a place that will be unliveable for humanity due to our treatment of the planet. In a rather interesting contrast, the world that Moshie finds himself dumped onto is one that is in a state of careful flux to maintain it. However, it is also one that is not natural by any means, so none of the natural beauties that we so take for granted exist.
This is a story of just mind-blowing technology, some fascinating, contrasting characters, and two storylines that have a lot more in common than you originally realise.
This isn't just Sci-Fi, this is a techno-thriller, a brilliant character story, and a story with a lot of similarities to Enders Game. Don’t Miss it.

It’s an easy read and very enjoyable and emotive at the same time. Fast paced, gritty fights, and many unique and unexpected turns. Just when you think you know it all, the twist is there to unbalance you. It’s also gratifying the mysterious way the author unfolds oh so bit by bit the secrets behind the outcomes and, Lol, keeps you nervous till the end, a delicious torture! A definite recommendation! Waiting for the next release!
Will undoubtedly do well with target audience
Did not kindle any roaring fire with me
The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that all of that info here. The story, and series, is a SciFi story about the future of humans. This book and the characters are well written. Enslaved is a fresh take on the apocalyptic storyline with aliens mixed in. I look forward to reading more of this series.
