A geneticist working at the forefront of genetic cloning is confronted by the desperation of a woman to have her husband’s child before his premature death. After failing every available fertility treatment, Droshky and Janson initiate the cloning of Rex to implant a genetically cloned foetus in Alexis’ uterus. Zev, and Malcolm, friends of Janson, together hatch an idea to create a colony where women can incubate cloned babies. Alexis’ baby is born, and many join the colony at Woomera under the trio’s control, their fates inextricably linked to the cloning of genetically superior people.

The words of Nostradamus and others act as a fated guide. A fast-paced story designed to make the reader think about human development and the inevitable nature of life. By weaving ancient morality with modern day technological themes together form a story that questions the boundaries of science. A psychological narrative based on potentially devastating ramifications of human genetic cloning.


On retirement, Megan Egglestone decided to try her hand at writing. This is her first novel and the first in a

trilogy. Imagining what it would be like to be cloned, set the tone for this novel which questions the

boundaries of science. After much debating, she decided to jump off the deep end, to seek out a

publishing company. As a fine art artist and dog lover, she shows her art in competitions and, attends

and participates in showing and breeding her Wire-Haired Dachshunds. She lives in the Northern

Rivers region of NSW, Australia, with her four Wire Haired Dachshunds.
