this is not normally the type of book thaat i read. i didn't think i would enjoy it, instead i fell in love with it. i was glued to it from start to finsih.
A modern day Jurassic Park in human DNA terms. Quite believable.
Very different book filled with intrigue,scientific theories and suspense. I was recommended this book by a friend. This 1st edition takes the cake! I loved every minute of this book, its different. You will love this if you love suspense!
I don't usually do any reviews on books, but this one was just one of those that I could hardly put down. I loved it! It's well written, and keeps you turning the pages!
Good. Creative. Keeps you wanting more.
A very unique and interesting story.
I love this book. I have read it 6 times and will probably read it again.
The concept of it was too intreguing
Some books are like a journey - a warm, wonderful journey. So this was one for me. I love Ember, a child who grows into a woman like no other in the world. She knows she is different, a fact that is emphasized every day of her life. As she tries to understand her difference and looks for answers her life changes dramatically. An incredible athlete who has special healing powers that she doesn't understand, Ember is a loving and wonderful young woman.
It's been several years since I read a novel like this one but even those I read in the past were quite different. I've put this author on my TBR list so I can see if this enchantment holds with his other books. Ember from the Sun was a joyous journey for me from start to finish. It did not seem like over 500 pages! I can't recommend this read enough.
from the back cover:
In the blue ice of an arctic cave, a scienist has made an extraordinary discovery: a woman's body, frozen for 25,000 years in a near perfect state, with pliant tissues, vessels filled with blood, and an embryo waiting to be born....
They called her Ember, the child of thier heart, born to surrogate parents who refused to yield her after birth. Raised among the Quanoot Indians, Ember is as modern as those around her, a young woman struggling with a loneliness and yearning she does not yet understand. Stronger than her classmates, imbued with the power to heal, Ember's soul resounds with the cries and whispers of a time she has never seen, and of a people who beckon her home.....
