Genesis by Kipjo Ewers is the third entry in The First Series and the first I am reading from this author. It is an absorbing and surprising narrative, enriched by strong elements of science fiction and political intrigue, and driven by a phenomenal conflict that culminates in the ultimate fight between good and evil. Sophia is a woman with unusual skills, and with the changes that have happened after the uprising, she is poised to champion a new era of freedom. But a cryptic message sent to the UN makes her a subject of controversy — while some think she is a threat, others see her as one to bring hope. Meanwhile, a deadly attack against humanity is in the making and an ancient evil returns, growing in strength by the hour and determined to dominate the world. Can humanity count on Sophia?

Genesis is a sumptuous story that is rife with originality, has a cast of compelling characters, and features a conflict of staggering proportions. This entry is characterized by a stimulating system of politics, humor and plot twists for superb entertainment. While this narrative contains so much material to fill up two books in a series, it manages to move the conflict deeper, allowing the central character to be fleshed out, and keeping the reader focused throughout the story. Kipjo Ewers’ confident prose mixed with the exciting dialogues make this a hard-to-put-down read. It is dense, it is intriguingly complicated and intelligently written. The protagonist — though not your ordinary heroine — feels real and convincing. There is great potential for entertainment in this entry and I am looking forward to reading the other books in the series.
