If you were the leader of an entire species, looking to save your kind from destruction, who would you call?
A famous warrior? A great public speaker? A genius strategist? A talking goat?
What about a certifiably insane wannabe engineer?
On Minerva, an earth-sized, blue, frozen planet, the aliens await the arrival of humanity, which for a species who mimics everything they see, will spell out certain doom. With no other choice, the Minervans send a plea for help to exactly the species they're hoping to avoid.
The transmission reaches the strong-minded Victor, better know as Volt, Collins, the least heroic of heroes. He's clumsy, unsuccessful, and thought to be mentally unstable.
But he's got a big responsibility and a big heart to go along with it.
'Mimic' follows Volt through both childhood and his young adulthood, which weave together to form one story of determination and courage.
And sarcasm. Did I mention the sarcasm?
Updates will be pretty random, but hopefully frequent, at first. I hope to fall into a more regular schedule after a couple of updates.
