Elaborate Description


Nova is a pilot for the Union, who comes from a military family and is trying to get enough experience to be a Sky Hunter.  Experience that comes while the Union is at war with rebels.  At base, Nova is viciously harassed by fellow crew.  The people responsible harass many others, and they seem to be getting away with their actions.  While on a mission, Nova gets captured.  While a prisoner, Nova finds out information that contradicts the ideals Nova believed in.  Seeing the war from the perspective of other side.  Seeing the impact of the war on the civilians caught in between.  Nova experiences the brutality and toll the war takes up close, which is a viewpoint not seen by pilots who see the action from far away.  Worse, Nova sees the rebels have supplies and weapons that come from the Union.  That means there is a problem with smuggling.  A mystery that needs to be resolved, but proof is needed, and potential key witnesses seem afraid of speaking up.  This is a story about questioning one’s beliefs.  This is a story of what it takes to stand up for what is right. 


The writing sometimes has poor flow which prevent an understanding of what has happened.
