Add Genesis to your Goodreads:
At age ten, Elizabeth Axelmore had the most charming life one could ask for on her home world; parents and three older siblings who love her to death, nanny there for her almost every second of the day. And then, during an act of violence, she had it all taken away. This forces Elizabeth to leave everything she knows she knows and loves behind to save her own life and travel to a strange new world a million miles away, Earth.
At first, all seems things will go perfect for Elizabeth, as she is adopted by a pleasant, loving family, the Duncan's, who accept her as one of her own. Elizabeth's growing up does not come without tragedy, as her childhood best friend, Jordan Taylor is abducted during innocent play right in front of the Duncan's house. Elizabeth grows up with her life constantly plagued with the thought of what happened to her best friend. But life must go on. And then, at age seventeen, Elizabeth gets the call from someone who knows where Jordan is.
Will Elizabeth place herself in danger to once again see her best friend?
What people are saying:
Science fiction, ghosts, magical powers, alien technology, robots twisted bad guys, other worlds, a female child heroine. This was a really interesting story. I found it super difficult to get into however, the author puts in so many details, that I found my mind overwhelmed. His style it a bit tricky, too. With all that said, I did find myself enjoying this book. Our heroine child comes to Nevada and gets adopted by a normal Earth family which is always amusing in a story line. There is a lot going on in this book. A fantastic story, with many different main characters the reader gets involved with.
Mark is the author of several titles, all of which can be found listed on Goodreads. Make sure to stop by and check them out!
