Product Description

Product Description

The Last Human War is a space opera about the last remaining humans in the explored galaxy. Three hundred years passed since the end of the Galaxy-wide Human War. Alien scientists on the planet of Tanarac spent the past two and a half centuries manipulating the DNA of their captives. They hoped that one day a less aggressive human species might live in peace with the other sentient races of the galaxy.

The Heptari Empire suspects their former allies of hiding secret colonies of human descendants. After the Human War, Tanarac promised to allow their POWs to die off at the end of their natural lives. Now, the Heptari Royal Codae is threatening to finish the job, a genocide of all humans they began long ago.

Will Tanarac surrender their prisoners to be killed at the hands of the Heptari government? Or, does a more sinister motive underlie the surprise arrival of powerful Heptari starships at the Tanarac capitol world?

Survival of mankind, and even the Tanarac Empire, will depend on the actions of a young man who escapes from a POW mining camp...a human with an unexpected power...Simon of Striker Twelve.

3.0 out of 5 stars YA or Adult Sci-if? 7 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase
I struggled with this one. For a YA book, it is an enjoyable and engaging read, creative with good pace as one would expect for YA book. For a self published book, it is pleasingly free of typos and benefits from editing. At less than £2 it is good value.The main negatives are that it is a bit long and some of the plots lurched along. However, it seems that it is aimed at the adult sci-if then it is poor with one dimensional characters, minimal character development, limited conflict, lurching story lines, and dialogue where everyone seems to speak like an American teenager! I will give the author the benefit of doubt and award it three stars. If it is intended for adults then one or two stars is enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars A straight forward over simple story 28 July 2014
Verified Purchase
A good story with decent characters and at a good pace. A good page turner. The universe is believable, and the aliens believable and definitely alien. The humans however were too gentle. No real dissent. No fire. They all agreed too easily.

I am looking forward to the sequel .

5.0 out of 5 stars A story that kept me reading 27 Jun 2014
By TW Ervin II - Published on Amazon.com

The Last Human War was a great science fiction story that kept me reading.

Humanity is on the verge of extinction, with what remains living under strict control of the Tanarac (an alien race—humans having been defeated in a galactic war, where humanity fell to an alliance after wiping out several minor races despite the collective resistance). So humans are seen as a scourge, a danger.

That leads to one thing I appreciated while reading: the worlds and alien societies Sault created aren’t cheap rip-offs or a mirror image of some other author’s, or movie’s, or television show’s universe.

The plot moves along at a good pace and I appreciated the space combat and tactics, both at the fleet and ship to ship level. While not every character had great depth, the ones that mattered, like Simon and Dr. Hadje, and General Tragge, did. Even with the aliens, I could see where they were coming from, despite the fact it wasn’t from a human perspective or based on a human culture.

Beyond that, the novel held my interest because although sometimes I guessed where things were going, other times I was surprised—yeah, it made sense, I just didn’t see it coming.

You don’t have to be a ‘hardcore’ SF fan to enjoy The Last Human War. Even so, if you enjoy SF by John Ringo or Harry Turtledove, or if you like Stargate SG1, Battlestar Galactica, or even Babylon 5, it might be up your literary alley.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another nice fact is the story is unique 12 July 2014
By Baby Dragons - Published on Amazon.com
From the very first paragraph this story grabs your attention. Every detail from the battles to the character interactions is well done. The flow of the story is smooth and just the right pace. At the same time you can hardly put the story down. You just have to keep reading to find out what happens next. Another nice fact is the story is unique. It is not a carbon copy of anything else i have ever read. Its refreshing to get such a good SciFi that is original and captivating. Would recommend this story to ANY one. It will convert you to a loyal fan of this author. I am eagerly looking forward to more.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Loved It! 10 July 2014
By Marian - Published on Amazon.com

I LOVED IT! I'm not a usual SF reader. I read all kinds of genres but this is far from my usual comfort zone. However, Dean Sault, the author told me a little about it and whetted my appetite! I'm so glad. I began to read the book in the morning and that was it. I didn't stop (except for dog walking and eating) until around 12:30pm when I finished. What a ride. The other reviewers have said what I'd have said. The world that Sault built was plausable and real. I believed in it and came to love and admire the characters who populated that world. And excitement? Wow! I found myself calling out..."Wait...try this!" "OK, that didn't work!" ;-)

I can't wait until the next installment because there will be one, I'm positive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! 3 July 2014
By Alaura Shouse - Published on Amazon.com
This was a hold-on-to-your-seat adventure from page one. The characters were engaging and the story, completely new. Loved the vivid battle scenes, the heartfelt relationships and the well structured histories. I couldn't put it down for long. Great Read!
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read for the Sci-fi fan! 7 Aug 2014
By jevans911 - Published on Amazon.com

This book starts off atypically from most Sci-fi fare, but soon swings into full Sci-fi mode with aliens and space battles. It's one of those rare book where I developed "feelings" for the characters . I'm not going to go into detail about the exact plot line to decrease spoilers, but needless to say, it's become one of my favorite finds on my Kindle from an indie author... I'm hoping for more from this brilliant author's mind soon!
