There is a world where children don’t play with toys. Spaceships, technology, knowledge and lives are their ‘playground’. Choosing a path and understanding and accepting the responsibility which comes with that chosen place in life is their rite of passage into adulthood.
DESCENT is the first part of Falaha’s Journey, a xenocentric science fiction trilogy of novellas.
When a seemingly simple rescue mission turns into a nightmare, Falaha, an ambitious five-year-old Danna Commander Trainee with a power she can’t use properly yet, has her skills put to the ultimate test as her world begins to collapse.
Danna are a species of humanoid aliens who share the Milky Way Galaxy with humanity. Unlike humans, they have been around for at least three billion years and are the oldest species in the Galaxy. Born with an alien artifact in their blood, they possess abilities surpassing anything any living creature can dream of. However, both their superb space technology and their unusual blood legacy have attracted danger no one expected. Abandoning their home Galaxy, the remaining population sets out in secrecy to their last resort, Kan Diona, the place to witness their victory or to become their grave.
Spacecraft Quennah and her crew are a part of those remnants, with a long journey of 100 days ahead of them to reach Kan Diona. But will any of them ever get there?
