Here's a Kindle book available for free today!

Halfkinds Volume 1: Contact, by Andrew Vu. (Still free?)

"Intelligence is power, and when we give it to other species, the world becomes a dangerous place." This high-tech Sci-Fi novel is free today!

"I've read many science fiction novels before but this one is very intriguing. The ideas of cross species are not new however, cross species with human is a whole other issue. Many will think it is morally wrong but is it really possible? But then again, this is about hundred of years into the future so anything could happen. I really enjoyed how the author expressed each of the character point of view about the world they live in: not every character wished they were existed. It is also a philosophical view that if you don't have a fair life, would you rather not be brought into this world. Also, there are many surprises in the plot and I like the author's writing style." -- Amazon reviewer

The Halfkinds Series
Halfkinds Volume 1: Contact - Available Now
Halfkinds Volume 2: Horus - Available Now


In the twenty fourth century, a scientific experiment gave a few species the gift of intelligence, and after much struggle, they've carved out a place in society. By the thirtieth century, humans find themselves co-existing, negotiating, and residing on Earth with these animals as equals.

Maya Lawton is a lonely prostitute living in this world. She gives birth to the first halfkinds, creatures who are half animal-kind, and half mankind. Since interspecies breeding is illegal, she is forced into seclusion and raises them alone. Then one day, without warning, she dies, and her death leads to their discovery. Abandoned and lost, this family of halfkinds plan to escape to a terraformed moon. But the law is after them. The order is to kill, sent by the highest authority, the United Species Alliance.

What separates the Halfkinds series from the rest isn't only its unique premise, but also its structure. Chapters shift between the first person POV's of key characters and are presented in a non-linear fashion in order to create a mounting suspense that will keep the reader riveted until the end. Various plot twists occur within the story, and the different character viewpoints help alter the tone as you go along to give an unbiased presentation of their motives and actions. The setting allows a diverse cast of characters, some human, many not, to send a message that intelligence is a power that we take for granted, and when given to other species, the world becomes a dangerous place.
