Elisa Nuckle is a twenty-something aspiring fantasy and science fiction novelist. It's always been her dream to chase ideas down and put them into concrete words. Currently, she's undergoing enlightenment at a community college in Houston, Texas, and plans on getting an English major in the hopefully-not-too-distant future.

Disclaimer: I am the author's friend. I did, however, buy my own copy of the book to read and review and I do not regret sticking with her during the journey of writing this book, nor do I regret spending $2.99 to get it.
In Dominant Race, the author has created a dystopian world with scientific aspects and merged them alongside unique and interesting characters to create a world that I want to know more about.
Lilia, the main character, is strong-willed and a touch rebellious as she leaves behind the only life she ever knew to help others like her. She is a modified; a human with DNA enhanced by animal DNA. The story focuses on the modified struggle with the normals - the humans without genetic enhancement.
Between the war that blossoms as this novella progresses, there is love, heartbreak, and a family struggle. Elisa Nuckle tells only the basics of the Earth's past, which leaves readers with plenty of room to envision the history of the Old People (the original humans on Earth) and how things turned into their current state.
Emotions get in the way and create a spectacular story that left me wondering how it will progress. It is war. A brutal war. Not everyone will survive. Judge for yourself if it's a happy ending.
If you enjoy science fiction, dystopian, or fantasy, then I recommend this novella that contains a touch of all of the above.
4 1/2 stars from me. It is worth the read and I'm looking forward to the rest of the trilogy!
