* Featured by @Fright * Humans are at the top of the food chain and always have been. But what if they weren't? What if another took our place and decided to raise and exploit us as we have every other animal on earth? Welcome to a world after humanity...
              
              No one is exactly certain where the sibla came from. Some say they evolved from humans long ago, slowly taking power as their numbers increased. Taller, stronger, and longer-lived, than homo sapiens it isn't too hard to imagine. Now humans must face a reality in which they are no more than animals, domesticated beasts bred for their master's various needs and hungers.
              
              Rachel Turner is only eight years old. Born in Demin, one of the last remaining free human settlements on earth, she has never been forced to face the reality of life under a sibla master, living a carefree existence in her hidden village.
              
              Magnus Kendrick is a sibla farmer with a sizable estate on which he raises all manner of livestock, from chickens, to sheep, to...humans. He is also the man destined to purchase Rachel's life.

Absolutely adoring this book so far! The author has a delight for writing, I suppose.
                              
                              This is also pretty useful for our English topic this term, which is Animal Rights. This is a very analytical story and can be applied to our own lives.

The description was so intriguing, one can't help but read. I really want to know how it will go. I'm really excited.
This book was brilliant.  I just couldn't stop reading it.  Please let me know of any others you write.

I'm a demon, right now I'm in Lust the second circle of the Inferno. I eat people for breakfast and dinner, a minor angel for lunch
