[Sometimes, Pure is the darkest world]
Parallel World Traveller
Sometimes, loneliness can drive you crazy.
And crazy people do bad things…
Ishi is a good person. But she’s about to be tested to the limit.
In the world 2525 the world is a toxic graveyard.
The wealthy are having a party.
The rest are rejects.
The last plague and the final wars of religion have left the population of earth at less than a million.
Humanity is distracted by subliminal messages fed into implant in their brains. And a desire to climb the pyramid hierarchy of the Symposium, a world government of scientists and a circle of shadowy figures. This secret society within the Symposium is known as The Pilgrims and The Journeywomen.
And the leader of The Pilgrims, Professor Lukas, is obsessed with finding a new world to rule over. His insatiable greed for power means he will stop at nothing.
After the failure of space travel, he sets his sights on the unspoiled planet of Jorna, a parallel world connected to earth.
Only one woman could make that happen. But she has failed.
Ishi McDonald, 26, is the most gifted theoretical physicist of her generation, genetically engineered to navigate to parallel worlds. But the trauma of her past has left her a withdrawn underachiever, living on the fringes of the ruling elite. She is only one step away from becoming a reject. Rejects live on reservations, scraping out a living among the toxic, crumbling ruins of ancient suburbs.
Until the day she meets Hermes, a man who offers her one last chance to succeed, one last chance to prove she is worthy of acceptance.
And her first chance at love.
But when she creates an archway to a parallel world and steps through, someone blocks her return to earth.
Ishi is left to survive in a primal world. An exact copy of earth – existing in the same time and space. Except on Jorna – the Pure Earth – human evolution never happened.
Lost, betrayed and alone, Ishi commits a terrible crime. Reanimation is outlawed by the Symposium, but breaking the law doesn’t seem to matter so far away from home. Her dream of creating a new life form is shattered when the creatures she made turn against her. Soon, her battle for survival becomes a fight against the violent hatred of those she created.
And when a message comes through from earth, she discovers the father who left when she was young, is still alive.
But even if she finds him, she fears she has become someone he will despise.
How can she ever put right the terrible wrong she has done?
Will Ishi ever find the sanctuary she craves?
More than that, how will she defend Jorna against the destructive ambitions of the Pilgrims?
