Would you sacrifice your son to save your daughter?
There's something different about Kate's four-year-old son. He wasn't created the old fashioned way. Now a violent cult wants him dead and Kate will do anything to protect him -- until they take her daughter.
In tomorrow's world, Kate is haunted by a brutal past. Struggling to navigate a life that seems like an experiment in virtual reality, her paranoia threatens to consume her. But when someone tries to kidnap Mally, she realises she was absolutely right to be afraid.
With only hours to go before the cult's prophecy is to be fulfilled, Kate and Seth face more danger than they've ever imagined, desperate to keep him safe. However, the charismatic leader of the cult has other ideas, which puts Kate in an impossible position. Who will she choose to live, and who will she have to sacrifice?
Set in South Africa in the near future, this story requires considerable concentration in order to follow it. Fortunately, Roshina Ratnam's outstanding performance helps. Unfortunately, the story is just way over the top. It's overly contrived and unrealistic. It's written more like a video game than a novel. Worst of all, it ends in a cliffhanger.
