Beyond Humanity: Lightning Falling and Hook of Rage

by t_andersson

Warning This fiction contains:
  • Gore
  • Profanity

Humanity reaches deeper and deeper into space with its starships and Space Cities. Maybe their technology and curiosity has taken them too far?

A scientist and an electrician walk down separate paths following the clues and secrets of the powers. Magical powers that let some shatter boulders with their fists and some discharge beams of ice from their palms and more. Everyone is different, and specific mental traits are key. There are many secrets left to discover.

A man cloaked by mystery and power works from the shadows, he has been given the tools to ensure humanity’s place in the Universe.

The future of humanity, how much is it worth?

Beyond Humanity will consist of three novels and all will be published in this sequence of chapters. The chapter POVs will rotate between Beth and Milo but with some guest inclusions of other characters. A new chapter will be published every Sunday, and whenever extra words drip off my fingers.

Beyond humanity - addictingly good

Reviewed at: Chapter 2

This story is amazing. The opening swept me away and left me craving for more. 

I truly enjoy the characters and their story. There is a great diversity which make the story even more enjoyable. 

The plot twists are well placed and took me by surprice, some even blew my mind. In a good way ;-)

I highly recommend this story. And YES, you should read it if you considered it. It will not disappoint.

Note for author: Keep those pages coming! 


Just my opinion, but to save the reader time and effort, skip this story.

The concepts are nice: super powers, humanity colonizing stuff, aliens, etc. These are why I started reading.

But, the characters are incomplete in their motivations, their decisions seem to stem from "the story said so" instead of developing from genuine demonstrated human motivations. This is why I stopped reading at chapter 14.

Finally, the author doesn't seem very proficient with the English language yet, and uses many phrases that are poorly translated. This makes trying to understand what is being said extra challenging, and weakens the story.
