Ambra Dawn is a Reader, able to look back into the past as well as get glimpses of the future. Yet her ability is more like a curse than a blessing – she is kidnapped and her parents killed, modified and enslaved. However, Ambra discovers that there are worst things that have and WILL happen; there are more complicated lessons she has to learn and understand. Her most important discovery of all is that humans and other beings of the universe secretly place their hope and fate on her shoulders.

I dare say that “Reader” engaged me with its story quicker than any other sci-fi novels than I have read before. It was as if I was reading a personal diary meant just for me. The novel was narrated from the perspective of only one character, Ambra Dawn, and author Erec Stebbins brilliantly used this focal point to shed new light upon the universe and Earth itself in ways that I could never imagine before. Emotionally, I was deeply connected with the protagonist Ambra. Some of her painful experience was hard to read, but this shows how effortlessly the story engaged me. This is a science fiction novel with stunning originality and is unquestionably a classic, one of the best ever written in the genre. Book 1 from this 'Daughter of Time series' made a loyal fan and a believer out of me, and I can’t wait to 'meet' Ambra again in Book 2.
