17 years ago, Melin Grezzij ended a war. 

She didn't get to enjoy the peace.

When her escape pod was found floating in the debris of the explosion nearly two decades after the war ended, Melin woke from cryosleep to discover a world where she no longer belonged. Alone, broken in mind and body, and plagued by dreams of impossible things, Melin travels to her ancestors' home planet seeking a fresh start. 

But there are no fresh starts for heroes.

A/N: Chapter 1 has been split into two, with the second half becoming chapter 2. The chapter formerly known as 2 is now 3, and so on.

                              I feel like this description reads like the description earlier above with rolling hills, trees, and cerulean. The author could either take the other description out or make this one different so it doesn't feel repetitive.

                              Nice imagery! So pretty. I can see it too. And I like the firm stroke of a painter line as well. 
                              I would love to see waters that blue too... Oooh

                              jovially, isnt those are the ones you put on pizzas?
Don't worry about shortening chapters, it is really not necessary, maybe you can just find a natural place where you can split them, and then have like 1.1, 1.2, etc. That is how I did mine
