Suffering from work-related anxiety makes life difficult, but what if your job involved a mission to rescue your entire world from extinction? Meet Ayathesti—compassionate, perfectionist, loner—the geneticist undergoing this stressful plight.
With planet Naratu dying, the only thing keeping the Mujai people from extinction is aerosolizing gold into the atmosphere. The Council has identified a planet abundant in the metal and selected a team to gather preliminary information. Ayathesti accompanies the team on the eighty-seven-year flight.
Her task? To isolate and collect DNA from an indigenous species to gene splice with their own. To create a hybrid species.
The purpose? To establish a localized colony to supply gold as needed.
But having a compassionate heart leaves Ayathesti with an inner conflict: show mercy and prevent the enslavement of a new species or ensure her people’s survival?
Things grow even more complicated with Tiamet as mission leader. His intelligence, confidence, and drive are exactly what make him perfect for the position. But they are also why he’s a perfect distraction for Ayathesti. Being in charge has challenges of its own, including making sure everyone is moving toward the same goal. And keeping up with changes as they arise has him juggling priorities. Given his history with Ayathesti, he’s confident he can get her on board to do her part. If Naratu is to survive, they both need to fill the demands of their roles.
While Ayathesti wrestles with her sense of right and wrong, Tiamet faces the pressure of leading a successful mission, and both struggle to fight the pull drawing them together. Will Ayathesti compromise her morals and go through with her duties? Can Tiamet stay focused and return everyone home safely? Will there be enough time on the brief visit of this foreign land—a planet they call Earth?
Extension is an exceptional book written by Melody Kepler that thrilled and captivated me from the start! Extension was incredible to me from the start thanks to the premise of the story and the bewitching literature courtesy of the author, Melody Kepler who from the beginning hooked me with her fantastic story that stands out amongst its genre! It is rare to find a novel that combines the themes this book does, and that is refreshing to me, and it is even more challenging to discover a story that does not rely on cliches! And so that is why I already recommend this book to you lovely readers; however, if you need more convincing, then continue to read to learn more!
Extension is an exceptional novel that will take its readers on a stellar journey from start to finish. Extension will take the reader on a journey through time and will introduce the reader to the protagonist of the novel, Ayathesti, a geneticist who has a hard task ahead of her. The reader will be thrust into a time in which the planet known as Naratu, is dying, and the Mujai people of it are going extinct. This forces Ayathesti to embark on a mission to a planet with a specialist team to find a resource they desperately need. It, however, involves creating a hybrid species, and Ayathesti is torn between saving her own people, and creating a slave species and this book lovers is the premise of this shocking science fiction tale that shouldn’t be missed!
The premise of Extension is exceptional, original, and beyond captivating! I loved the many themes and elements explored throughout the book, and all themes are explored by Melody Kepler wonderfully, and she does this by lacing these interesting themes throughout the text flawlessly and weaving them with the story. The result of this makes Extension a highly addictive and fascinating read that is never once lackluster or predictable.
Melody Kepler is a phenomenal writer who knows how to grasp her reader’s attention from the first page. Kepler decides to thrust her reader into the heart of the story straight away so that the reader is instantly captivated and immersed. I personally love this approach, what is the point of having a long build-up with little excitement? This is only necessary if the author in question can’t develop the characters in the story quickly, but with Extension, the reader will not encounter this issue because Melody Kepler instantly develops her characters and makes the reader invest in not only them but also their journey!
To conclude my thoughts on the wonderful book Extension, I would say Extension is a wonderful, compelling, and thought-provoking novel that will easily entertain readers for many days and nights and so I, of course, have to award this stellar gem of a book five stars!
