About Lizzie-99XT: A Short Story
To save humanity, she must become the machine.
Lizzie’s squadron of elite starfighter pilots is the only thing standing between Earth and annihilation. But to stop the alien invasion, she must fight at near-light speeds, merging her mind with her starfighter’s AI. With every new battle, she loses another piece of her humanity, and the world that she’s fighting for slips further into the past.
