Growing up in San Diego, California, Karri Thompson spent much of her years at the beach, reading novels, tanning, and listening to hard rock. At SDSU, she majored in English with the goal of becoming an author. Once she became a wife, mother, and high-school English teacher, her dream came true, and all of the plots and characters in her head finally found a home. Victorian literature rocks her socks, and when she's not writing, she's reading Dickens.
I’ll never let them control me...
I’ve been lied to, deceived, and manipulated—again. You’d think I’d be treated with dignity and respect. I’m the one who’s supposed to save humanity, right? I’m the one with the power to re-populate this dying world. But the clones want to control me, force me to give birth over and over again. And my daughters will face the same fate—unless I change it.
My awakening into this future should have been a chance for a new life, but it just promises a living death. With Michael on my side, though, maybe I can save us. He’s the only person I can trust.
I hear rumors of others... A secret society is growing. Tension is building.
A rebellion is imminent.
I was born more than a thousand years ago.
Put into a cryogenic tube at age seventeen, forgotten during a holocaust that decimated the world, I've finally been awakened to a more serene and peaceful future.
But things at the hospital are new and strange. And it's starting to scare me.
Everyone is young. Everyone is banded and tracked. And everyone is keeping secrets.
The cute geneticist Michael Bennett might be the only good thing in this crazy new world where "life is precious" but no one seems free to live it. The problem is, I don't think he's being totally honest with me, either.
When I'm told only I can save the human race from extinction, it's clear my freeze didn't avoid a dreadful fate. It only delayed the horror…
