9780972400787: The Ademian Line

A classic Science Fiction epic of profound implications... "The Ademian Line" is a brilliant work of science fiction. It is about the shortcomings of the human race; why these shortcomings exist and above all, it is about Isa, one woman who struggles to try to change the maddening, suicidal course mankind is on. "The Ademian Line" tells the story of Ademian who was exiled to Terra (Earth) from Haverdan, a planet in the Celstra Constellation, as part of an experiment. Possessing mutant genes which the Haverdanians could not tolerate in their society, Ademian was sent to Terra instead of being terminated. The Haverdanians had hoped Ademian's mutant genes would, in time, be bred out. What happened to Ademian and the crisis facing the Ademian line, the race he spawned unfolds in this extraordinary science fiction novel. When Isa makes contact with the aliens and learns that they populated Earth as a penal planet with the mutant genes of Ademian, and that we are his doomed descendents, she races against time to convince them into giving her the power to alter the state of the world. Will it be in time? "The Ademian Line" is a truly remarkable book. It is a contemporary science fiction epic, a fantastic adventure story with a daring cosmology as profound as any ever written. It is a brilliant new interpretation of why the world is so chaotic, and how one woman s desire to change it sets into motion events that are controversial and challenging. "The Ademian Line" is one of the most important science fiction novels of the past decade. With its pulsating narrative, it will hold you until the explosive end. It is a work of extraordinary insights and will most assuredly make you change the way you look at life. A must read for everyone who asks the questions why am I here and how did I get here?

About the Author:

Review:

"The Ademian Line" follows the life of Isa, a woman searching for ways to escape the besieged planet. She struggles to change the chaos and madness that surrounds people. During her attempt to change the world, Isa comes into contact with the aliens and learns that they have been using Earth as a penal planet and have populated it with the mutant genes of Ademian. Humans are Ademian's doomed descendants. Ademian is exiled to Terra (Earth) from Haverdan, his home planet situated in the Celstra constellation in a solar system at the far end of the Galaxy. Ademian possesses mutant genes, which the Haverdanians consider harmful and intolerable. Thus they punish him with exile on a distant planet instead of terminating him. The Haverdanians believe that greed, selfishness and megalomania are the principal crimes and deserve the ultimate punishment. This means that Ademian's genes will always plague most of the people living on Terra. The book relates Isa's pursuit to persuade the aliens to give her the powers that will allow her to alter the state of the world. "The Ademian Line" is an extraordinary work of science fiction that imaginatively interprets global disorder. Telling an adventurous story with a highly captivating end, Erna Olinger gives new direction to thought. She takes the reader on an enthralling journey that adds a different perspective to life and challenges regular life. With vivid, lifelike characters, "The Ademian Line" transports the reader into a different world. It is a deeply entertaining, insightful book that never fails to entertain. --BookWire Review June 29, 2005
