The debut pocket novel of Anike Kirsten, Of Beasts and Men, is a social science-fiction dystopia about one Librarian’s quest to save humanity from her people and discover the truth to their origins.
“A truth hidden for centuries.
A society ripped apart.
Mankind faces annihilation.
When the Great War of the revolt against humanity ended, the High Council swore to keep the truth hidden for the sake of peace. For centuries, that peace was maintained through ignorance and oppression.
Until humanity fights back.
Towns are raided and Libraries destroyed, the society begins to crumble. Gliese Libra, a Librarian in her Tertiary Learning, is pulled into the centre of conflict between the High Council and the Insurgency. Through battles of conviction, manipulation, blackmail, and privilege, Gliese must find the key to end the next Great War before mankind is eliminated.
In shifting allegiances and with the help of Albert Hollows, the main runner for the Insurgency, Gliese uncovers the truth of the Majoris: the orcyform, and their origin. After the exposing of this knowledge, Gliese races against the clock to find humanity’s salvation before it’s too late.”
