EMERGENCE AND EVOLUTION
WRITTEN BY: J.M. ERICKSON
REVIEWED BY: APRIL EPLEY
What a great sci-fi book. This book consists of two novellas, the first being ‘Emergence’ and the second being ‘Evolution’. This was an interesting read and I enjoyed it. I am looking forward to the next book in this series. This is a cliff hanger and I am impatient with wanting to know what happens next.
Jose Melendez is a soldier with much training in cryogenics and amazing with science and numbers. He has Asperger’s Syndrome, which is part of the Autism spectrum. He may not have the social skills that you would expect but he is damn brilliant. When working with Cryogenic sleep he ends up asleep for over a hundred years instead of the 8 months he expected. This is after a mission went badly due to a virus that was causing men to go a bit crazy. When he awakens 100+ years later, everything is run by Aps (Robots) and women. He awakens startled by 3 Aps that become friends.
While working on figuring out what to do, he comes upon ways of helping them become more human like. Funny it turns out they seem to have more feelings and emotions than he does. He finds out that Nemericana, run by women of course, is casting out the young boys at about 13-14 years old. Finding evidence that there is no longer a threat with men, Jose is determined to try to save these cast outs. Even more so once he finds out they are no longer just being cast out, now they are being executed. Jose and his military group are now saving the boys.
Find out what happens when one of the Military girls inside Nemericana realizes her son is soon to be cast out. Do yourself a favor and read this book. It has logs from Jose in it which help you to keep track of exactly what he is thinking. I am giving this book 4 strong stars. Now I will be waiting for more of the story. Thank you.
