Our intellect directs us. Our humanity defines us.
What if the key to unlocking our genetic code and our future lay within some of our most disenfranchised individuals? Would we still shun them?
Seattle in the year 2330: centuries of conflict have led to this precipice. If the world is to move forward, Olivay has the difficult task of teaching Alucia her history. Olivay knows that without understanding where she came from Alucia will never be able to help humanity explore the universe.
In present day Seattle, Jason Roy is a scientist whose life revolves around his daughter, Lily. Within her genome lies a secret that Jason has dedicated himself to uncovering. The mundane life of a scientist and his family takes a turn when a multinational corporation decides Jason Roy’s research is a danger to them.
Jason and Lily are now running away from an unforeseen enemy and toward a discovery that will change mankind. Altering the world may come too late for Jason to save what matters most in his own world.
The great irony of unlocking our genetic potential was finding that our greatness was found in our love for one another.
“Ms. Sydney, you have five minutes left.”
I don’t have time. Debbie made a split decision. She moved the files directly into her drive before her program finished. “Thirty seconds, twenty seconds, five seconds. Download complete.”
“Ms. Sydney, what are you doing?”
The alarm had notified him. Debbie carefully watched as the security guard moved toward her. He was the only other person here. The young guard at the window was not in her direct line of sight. Debbie quickly removed her drive. The guard moved in closer.
“Ms. Sydney, I will need you to give me that drive and come with me!”
Debbie bowed her head as she turned with her hand held out gesturing toward the guard as if she was going to give him the drive. The guard reached to take it when Debbie seized his hand pulling him forward and allowing his momentum to increase the force as her opposite elbow collided with his temple. The guard was dazed but not out, so before he could alert anyone, she put him in a sleeper hold until he was out completely. Debbie quickly slid him under the table and moved toward the door. The guard in the window must not have heard anything as indicated by his curt nod. She returned his gesture and took great care not to run as she went toward the stairs. Patience. Don’t attract attention.
Debbie left the stairwell carefully walking past the administration building security. The lines from the morning were gone so the guards acknowledged her. She turned and smiled while pushing on the door just as the alarm went off. Debbie ran with all her might away from the security gate at the road entrance. Running behind the building as the alarm got louder and louder, Debbie pulled out her phone.
“Agent Davis, come get me.”
Olivay and his daughter Alucia he day in 2330. He begins to tell her the story of the Trispero. In present day after the death of his wife Rachel in childbirth Jason Roy is now raising his Downs Syndrome daughter Lily alone. Jason had shifted his studies to genetic disorders. Looking for a cure for Lily. Finding that the t-cells could have other uses in body, he started looking at possible cure for other diseases and disorders. A rival company wanted to be the first to discover the possibility. Which leads to murders, cover ups and has Jason and his daughter running for their lives.
I have to admit I was torn on my rating for this book. In the beginning, it was technical overload. You really need to keep in mind that it is a story being told. It was easy to get caught up in the lives of Jason and Lily. . They had such a wonderful relationship. Jason’s whole world was his daughter. He loved her the way she was. From the medical and genetic stand point, I was a little lost. As the story continued it started making more sense. The second half of the book was non stop action. Everything started falling into place about what the past has to with the future. By that point I was caught up in the suspense and mystery of the story.
