Overpopulated by its dominant species, the planet Retha is on the brink, its other inhabitants at risk of extinction. But decades of wanton destruction – overconsumption, pollution and the decimation of natural habitats – have not gone unnoticed.
Unbeknown to its inhabitants, Retha is, in fact, one of a number of Protected Nature Reserves throughout the cosmos, the responsibility of Regulators from other planets.
And so begins the story of an official enquiry into the mistreatment of a planet much like our own, in which the true extent of its destruction becomes increasingly clear and those responsible brought under the spotlight.
Part science fiction, part love story, The Message is the critically acclaimed debut novel from Yan Vana that cleverly puts human civilisation under the microscope and highlights the inevitable consequences of human overpopulation.
Thought provoking and a lovely read, it wasn’t at all what I expected but it kept me reading until the very end. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Amazing story containing so much truth about life on this planet. This book can open the eyes of future generations. Splendid reading, highly recommended. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Everyone should read it to the end… it is a vehicle for encountering the uncomfortable truths about the human race and these need to be confronted. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This book shows the human race up for what it is. It’s is a fascinating tale of alien races judging humanity on it’s reckless, careless treatment and destruction of our own world and life on it. It makes you feel ashamed to be human – and so it should. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
