17 years ago, Melin Grezzij ended a war. 

She didn't get to enjoy the peace.

After her escape pod is found drifting through the War Witch's debris nearly two decades after the end of the war, Melin is woken from cryosleep and finds a galaxy where she no longer belongs. Alone, broken in mind and body, she finds herself pulled to the planet of her ancestors. She just wants a fresh start. A chance to end the dreams plaguing her sleep.

But Satura is a planet at war.

And there are no fresh starts for heroes.

 #WWBC Ok, so this looks like it could on the back of a really good novel. It definitely makes me want to read it.
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

                              I Love this quote. Being by George Orwell, it makes me curious. Now doubt we’re to see some killer sci-fi that could come strata out of 1984!
personally, i love having long chapters. it automatically makes me think that its meant to be published 😂
