Enclave


Book Review: Reading this book is about the same as being sucked into a tornado. With two competing story lines you are initially flung from side to side. Seeing glimpses of light to being plunged into darkness. I will be honest and say that at first I didn't think I was going to like this book. However, all of a sudden I seemed to be sucked into the vortex of that funnel and couldn't get out.

The story is centered in the field of genetics which provides for a very controversial and interesting plot.

Book Description: When Lacey McHenry accepts a prestigious research fellowship at the world-renowned Kendell-Jakes Longevity Institute, she sees it as a new start on life. But a disturbing late-night encounter with an intruder leads to an unexpected cover-up by Institute authorities, and she soon realizes there's more going on than she ever imagined.

She finds a supporter in genetics researcher Cameron Reinhardt. However, Reinhardt is a favorite of the Institute's director, and she can't help wondering if he, too, is in on the cover-up. The brilliant but absentminded researcher turns out to have his own secrets, some of them dark and deadly. The Enclave is characterized by adventure, intrigue, spiritual analogy, and romance, all set in an unusual but fully realized world--one that may have its foundations on earth but which, the more one learns of it, doesn't seem much like the earth we know at all.
