(Han Storm: The Chronicles of Han: #11)
by H. Gibson (Goodreads Author)
“Being linked to every spark of intelligent life within my Universe is to know the content within the hearts and minds of mankind. This is the way of the Navigator. I am Han, and this is my life-memory . . . ”
Han Storm continues his duty in opening planets for his people while constantly having to adjust and change to survive.
“I drank in the quiet of the night, the purity of this place that had absolutely no human on it.
I did not count. I did not consider myself human any longer.
“*It is not good for you to dally here too long. You will lose your nerve to go back, wishing for things that can never be. Do not torture yourself. Leave this place for the humans that need it. It is why you are opening it for them.*”
I sighed. Duek was right. I could only marvel at this unspoilt planet that was to be given over to the destructive ways of humans. For the sake of living life in its many adventures, its many forms of emotional experiences.
I hated myself for destroying this pure world. It felt as if I was betraying Dōhr. Yet her Guardian was excited to be able to serve human entities again.
Concentrating on Duback, I set my jaw, burying the heartache for this unspoilt wilderness that was not going to be thus for much longer, and jumped for home.”
