Five thousand years in the future, the Earth is dead. A galactic network of terraformed planets, connected by teleportation portals, is populated by the genetically improved Descendants. The original Humans, labeled dangerous and barbaric, are kept under constant surveillance.
In this seemingly peaceful society, Dora Dana Dasnan, a gifted Visionaire, serves the leading race of Descendants by reporting her Visions of the future. But when one of her Visions predicts the unthinkable — contact with a Human man — Dora’s carefully ordered life begins to unravel as she desperately tries to hide her thoughts from her masters.
Soon, her very life is in danger and she needs to escape before it’s too late. But in this disciplined and controlled society that is impossible. Just when Dora loses all hope, a teleportation error sends her to a new and astoundingly beautiful world: a wild, lush, green planet where all her hidden emotions come to life.
And then – she meets the natives, and one in particular looks strangely familiar. And while Dora struggles to adapt to an alien culture she also discovers just how powerful her emotions really are.
After committing a horrible crime, Johnny has the perfect escape plan. Or does he?
“You’ve tried being with other women, Jack. It didn’t work. I’ve told you this before, but I’ll say it again: most people, most souls, never meet their soul partner. The world is just too big. But a few—and Jack, you were among them—actually find their soul mate. You will never be happy until you find her again in this life.”
Jack and Sandra are soul mates, but live worlds apart.
What will decide their destiny: fate or determination? Or both?
Forbidden is a short story about craving. And giving in.
