The HOP: A Graphic Novel
★★★★☆ (4.0 stars)
Where Do Humans Come from?
The HOP was designed to answer that question. Federation scientists insist they keep the Human Origins Program going despite thousands of years without success. They’re sure that seeding planets and studying the results will eventually provide the answer. The Federation Breeders are eager to expand the experiments in new directions. They want to return to living on planets and study themselves. Split along reproduction lines, neither side is prepared for the truth.
Amanda Roth is sick of the lies and hatred in the two-party system. Trapped between her powerful parents and her conscience, Amanda is determined to end the heartless HOP that kills the test subjects, and she’ll go to any length to accomplish her goal. When the truth impales her, she begins a short, furious journey that enlightens her and changes the Federation forever.
The origin of species, an age-old question of god vs. science, resulted in a program where mating pairs were wiped of their memories and dropped onto isolated worlds in an attempt to prove or disprove that god exists. Over eons, the failed experiments have been destroyed with asteroids before the planet’s population became aware of the ruthless space colony running these awful tests. There have never been survivors.
But HOP-17 is different. Set for removal during a time of great chaos among the Federation Council, earth will be the catalyst that reveals the true origins of mankind. The weight of countless worlds rests on the shoulders of one Federation Council heir, but she might not be prepared for the sacrifices that she’ll have to make during her space quest to expose the truth.
Where do we come from? Does life have a Creator? Hidden by the protective isolation of space, an empire of lethal geniuses are determined to discover that answer at any cost.
