USA Today Bestselling and Award-Winning Author
They came as saviors to a deteriorating Earth.
Julip Torne questions whether there is more to life beyond the barren dirt, acidic seas, and toxstorms her people work and die in. Living in poverty on the withering Greenland Human Reservation, she wonders if the alien Mezna goddesses are truly as holy as the temple preaches.
Meanwhile, Jakkattu prisoner Sabaal suffers constant torture and heinous medical experiments as Mezna-priest captors seek to unlock the key to her genetic makeup. She escapes captivity but ends up alone on the hostile alien planet of Earth. If she is to survive, she must work with the same Mezna-human hybrids she’s loathed her entire life.
When humans and Mezna collide, will Sabaal turn out to be the genetic vector the Mezna have been searching for all along, or will she spark the flame that sets a revolution ablaze?
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
Ms. Tyler has created a new genre where she takes old traditions and myths and projects them into a future, that, despite its high technology, it’s still polluted by slavery, prejudice, and exploitation. Her strong world building is made even more extraordinary by the exquisite detail and attention in creating new people and cultures.
An impossible to put down story that builds with action, tension and disturbing ‘what could be’ scenarios are only a few of the highlights in this book. P.K. Tyler places readers into the world she has created: this post-apocalyptic earth where divisions and appearances mean the difference between life and death, semi-realized freedom or slavery and all living to satisfy the will of a small group in charge.
There are so many elements and twists. P K Tyler has definitely risen to the top of my list of favorite authors. The richness of not only each character, but the thoroughness of each species is remarkable. As I read from each person’s perspective, I felt I was that person.
The book is well written and it flows seamlessly. Tyler has the capability to visualize whatever she writes and this is really shown in the book. The reader becomes part of it and it’s story and can really see into the picture as being there, part of the action.
Prejudice, slavery, racism, arranged marriage, genetics, cloning, religion, poverty, oppression; the author tackles these difficult subjects with grace, dignity, and thoughtfulness, examining each of those complex issues as seen through the viewpoints of multiple intriguing characters.
