This short story was a great read. The concept is very original and enjoyable. The story relates what happens to a peaceful planet, one of Earth's lost colonies, after the military might of Earth arrives, hell bent on mining the planet's resources. It isn't long, which is why I gave it 4 out of 5 instead of 5, but it is very well written, thought provoking and of a professional standard. The introduction was a bit hard to take, introducing new people and names left right and centre with no character development, but that soon settles down and you get to know the main characters in the short length of this story.
The story has some wise words to share about peace, humanity, the insanity of war and finishes with a nice series of twists.
I feel the writer is very gifted, and look forward to reading more of their work. This is a good short read, well worth downloading.
