What would you do if you suddenly found yourself alone, the only human remaining on an alien occupied planet. Could you cope? Would you survive? How would you deal with the loneliness, and the knowledge that you were the only human being within forty light years.
When the small communities of Corros, a remote human colony world, come under attack from the Tolleani, an alien species with whom humanity is at war, Echo, a young woman finds herself the sole survivor.
For three years she survives alone, wondering why nobody has come to rescue her. Then, the aliens return to set up a research base at the community which had once been her home. For another year, she hides alone in the nearby mountains, until the first human ship arrives, to be promptly captured by the aliens.
When Ben, a member of the captured crew, escapes, he stumbles upon Echo’s hideaway. She needs his help to escape, but soon learns that he has an agenda of his own, and needs her help to achieve it.
“Solitude’s End” is the first in the series “Echo’s Way”. Whilst part of a series, it is a complete, stand alone Novella, and not part of a large, continuing story. Whilst basically an action / adventure story with just a hint of romance, it is a science fiction story set on a distant colonial planet in the far distant future.
