The Genesis Project by Tigris Eden
Posted by brriske
Old earth has been deemed unsuitable for life, New Earth is home. With the Uni-Wars over, races have joined together in order to sustain their way of life. All life was considered worth saving, but only one race failed to submit. Humans.
Now extinct, humans are a thing of the past. The people of New Earth won’t acknowledge their hand in their eradication, but they have benefited from it. Dr. Vaggo Blackmore has found the answer, he’s restored his races way of life- sustenance through farming. The one thing that will give them back their long lives….. Blood, human blood.
Biologically engineered in a lab, Genesis Blackmore has always been different. Her father has told her it’s due to her enhancements, the Federated Council sees her as a genetic mutation; and her fellow peers see her as the shiny new toy. Gen has had better days.
Everyone on New Earth has milky white skin, platinum blonde hair, and electric blue eyes. It’s the norm. Genesis’ glossy, black hair, ice blue eyes ringed by gold, would have almost made her socially acceptable- if it wasn’t for her golden skin and blue, gold veins. In a sea of milky white she alone is the dark anomaly.
All Pars get their life’s nourishment through blood plasma. All Pars find their match through the tasting. Gen can do neither, forbidden by her father to do so. She can neither taste, nor be tasted. Something that’s never bothered her until now.
I received this book from the author and Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock for my honest review. This is the first book in a series. Let me start off that this book is to me a sci-fi/ paranormal. Genesis was created in a lab by her father to help save an almost extinct race, humans. She spends all her life in the lab working with her father. She doesn’t quite fit in with the rest of the world, and has to hide herself so as not to get found out about what she really is. Her father has been required to send her to a school for a cycle. Genesis has no social skills other than what she had read about. On her first day she is escorted by Adam, the chancellor’s son. Immediately sparks fly which makes Genesis scared as she hasn’t had to deal with real emotions before and she’s not sure if it’s normal. But Adam is promised to someone else so she dismisses the feelings. As the school sits in orientation in walks Xander, the mysterious bad boy. He makes the sparks she felt with Adam seem small in comparison. So ok this book had me really confused in some parts as there was so much going on and some things just didn’t seem to be explained enough. At one point we are lead to believe that Zander and Genesis are true mates, but then he says he’s using her. Then we are lead to believe that there is a love triangle, but Adam had a very small part in the book. I could go on about a few other things, but I will save you from that. I don’t normally read anything that has a sci-fi feel to it,but it was asked of me. Don’t get me wrong it did have some very good spots and the ending really threw me, and I’m curious to see what happens in the next book. Hopefully it will fill in some missing spots. There are some sex scenes, and an orgy is briefly mentioned, so I suggest 18 and over read this . Overall I’m only giving this book 3 stars.
