Synopsis

I was raised in a world where humans no longer rule.

In the past, we made a terrible mistake by creating a new species we thought would serve us as our army, which led to our downfall.

There was a war, we lost, and many lives were massacred. It was the end of life as we knew it and the beginning of a hell we were now trapped in. We became enslaved to what we now called Superiors, becoming pets to them, simply there to entertain.

In a world so miserable, I managed to do the unthinkable: I fell in love. But even that was doomed, because to love a Superior was forbidden.

What the rest of the Superiors didn’t know was how deeply a human could love or how resilient we became when we were hurt.

The Superiors never could have imagined an uprising, which was why they never saw it coming. Humans deserved to be free, and I would stop at nothing to deliver that promise.

My name is Tilly, and I am still alive with one sole purpose: to begin a revolution.

~

I had been raised to believe humans were worthless. We owned them and controlled them, and when we were done with them, we threw them away. Therefore, I never thought I would ever feel more for Tilly than disinterest. I never expected to want to save her.

It was forbidden for a Superior to love a human. No one had ever crossed that line, but I did. I fell madly in love with her, so it was no surprise how we ended up.

I was raised to be a soldier, and that was what I was always going to be. However, I was not a soldier for the Superiors, not anymore.

I became a soldier for humans, and I would stop at nothing to help them. They deserved to be free, and I would die protecting them.
My name is Johnny, and I am here with one sole purpose: to finish a revolution.

Teaser: Excerpt

PART ONE


Tilly

     This all started out as simple curiosity. Curiosity is part of what makes us human. We never would have come as far as we have without it. Then again, we also wouldn’t have fallen as far without it, either.
      I don’t know the exact details of what happened. I only know what I have managed to read in the history books: Humans couldn’t stop experimenting. We couldn’t stop seeking that next milestone or that next level of greatness.
      That’s when we created a new species, one that is almost human, but they are genetically altered. The scientists took away all of our genetic faults when they created them for the purpose of having an army to serve us. They thought it would make us forever protected and safe.
      It probably was not completely those scientists’ fault. We were conditioned to think of humans with special abilities as heroes. Movies, books, and comics were dedicated to showcasing our saviors. Sure, there might have been a bad guy in that plot, but they never lived in the end, because in those mediums, humans were kept safe, and we always had our world in the end. We always had a sense of control and a future promised to us.
      No one considered that what we created would never fit under the heading of a superhero. Never did we think we had made a species that would be the human race’s downfall. After all, even though they took away all of our physical faults when they created this new species, they still left others behind: arrogance, self-interest, greed—the list goes on.
      It wasn’t long before humans became enslaved to what we now call Superiors.
      There was a war, we lost, and many lives were massacred. It was the end of life as we knew it. Humans weren’t made extinct, though. No, there are many who still live, myself included.
      After the war ended, humans became little more than pets, slaves or breeders. We are considered weak and, therefore, only for the Superiors’ amusement. We entertain them. And since they began regulating how many humans could be bred to keep our numbers down, it adds status to their family to possess a human. They think it is a novelty to own and control us.
      As a result, they never could have imagined an uprising. They never saw it coming. Even I didn’t know, and I am part of it.
      Humans deserve to be free, and I will stop at nothing to deliver this promise.
      My name is Tilly, and I am alive with a sole purpose: to begin a revolution.
