What does it really mean to be human?

That history is fourteen-year-old Anaximander’s specialist subject. In a darkened room she sits facing three Examiners and a grueling four-hour examination. The subject is close to her heart: Adam Forde, her long-dead hero. If she passes, she’ll be admitted into The Academy – the elite institution that runs her utopian society.

But Anax is about to discover that for all her learning, the history she’s been taught isn’t the whole story. Before her four hours are up, Anax will confront her own surprising link to Adam Forde, The Academy’s dark secret and the horrifying truth about her world.

You are about to discover a provocative novel of dazzling ingenuity. Genesis leads us into a future where ancient - eternal – philosophical questions have collided with the march of technology, where just what it means to be human, to be conscious, to have a soul is up for debate, and where the concealed stain of an Original Sin threatens the vary existence of Anax’s Brave New World.
