In a highly classified secret government program, highly intelligent, genetically enhanced humans are birthed and trained to be super soldiers, mental Einsteins whose I.Q.s and abilities register far above normal. The perfect “score” was a 10, but two individuals were more than perfectly intelligent, and they broke all of the rules when they fell in love. They also created a being superior to even themselves, a child who would grow up in boarding schools across the globe, never knowing who or what she was, never having a sense of family, never wanting for anything.
Now an adult, Haven is about to discover who and what she is, a Genetically Enhanced Medical Soldier, a “12,” superior in every way to every other G.E. M. S. She will also discover how she came to be and how badly both the government and terrorists want her and she will be entangled in the fight of her life, for her life and that of her own children.
Gail Parker has a gem of a science fiction tale to tell with her debut novel, G.E.M.S.! It isn’t that genetically enhanced soldiers hasn’t’ been written about, it is that this time out, the focus is on one young woman, who must dig deep to believe in the unbelievable and embrace her potential to its fullest and she must do it fast!
Let go of reality and meet Haven as she becomes an over-the-top heroine on a mission to save lives trapped in the claws of a deadly terrorist. Ms. Parker wastes no time in thrusting us into the action and creating an air of mystery and suspense as this tale unfolds. Her characters are fascinating as they relate to each other, share their POVs and the webs they have woven throughout the years. Witness a rather unusual family reunion, in-law troubles, and a battle of wits and might that only good science fiction and fantasy can bring to life! Definitely a fun read!
Who doesn’t love a good government conspiracy project that just may be exposed?
